When staking Celestia (TIA) you are securing the network with the additional benefit of compounding your TIA with staking rewards!

Staking TIA is the process of holding TIA "stake" to partake and support the operations in the Celestia network to receive rewards. To be a "Delegator" and participate in these operations, one must maintain a server running continuously, have technological know-how and experience, and have a significant self-bond (surety bond).

This is where validator comes in. We allow TIA token holders to forget about all the heavy lifting, for example, maintenance, surety bonds and other technical requirements, by "delegating" their holdings to to receive these rewards. We accumulate users' stakes and act as a major validation node. We receive and allocate stake rewards between our users pro rata to the delegation.

Users who choose to stake with maintain full custody of their TIA at all times, and will never have access to them.


Let's assume that current APR for staking TIA is approximately 11.3%, and the validator fee is 5%. I delegate 1000 TIA to

Reward: 1000*11.3% = 113 TIA
Validator Fee = 113*5% = 5.65 TIA
Estimated balance after 1 year = 1000+113-5.65 = 1107.44 TIA

By simply delegating my 1000 TIA as I hold it, I will have supported the network and earned an additional 107.44 TIA after one year.

​Please keep in mind that the APR and Fee specified is approximate and changes along with network conditions. Each reward payout varies as it depends on the amount of slots assigned to block producers.
