Before staking on the Celestia network, you must have Celestia's TIA tokens in your account. To deposit funds into your Keplr Wallet, follow the steps below.

ADD CELESTIA NETWORK TO THE KEPLR WALLET

Go to the "Manage Chain Visibility" menu, select Celestia and click Save.

COPY YOUR CELESTIA DEPOSIT ADDRESS

Return to your Keplr wallet and click on Deposit.

Select the Celestia network, and copy your address.

Visit one of the TIA trading exchanges listed here and send TIA to the deposit address copied above. Once the transaction is complete, go back to your Keplr Wallet.

STAKE CELESTIA

STEP 1. LAUNCH YOUR TIA STAKING

Click Manage Portfolio in Keplr Dashboard at the bottom right of the Keplr Wallet extension.

The Keplr Dashboard will appear in a new tab. To start staking you need to search for the Celestia Chain.

STEP 2. SELECT A VALIDATOR

Choose a trusted validator from the list of staking providers, such as P2P.ORG.

Click the Stake button in the following P2P.ORG pop-up.

STEP 3. DELEGATE TOKENS

Input the desired delegation amount for P2P.org, or opt for MAX to stake all available funds. Remember to leave a small amount of tokens to cover fees for future transactions. Click Stake.

STEP 4. CONFIRM THE TRANSACTION

Go to the Keplr Wallet and approve the transaction.

Once the transfer completes successfully, you can check this transaction in the Keplr Dashboard.

Please note that TIA has a 21-day unbonding period. You will retain ownership of your assets throughout this period, with the lock-in only preventing you from transferring the funds to other accounts for the specified time.
