On October 14th Zilliqa successfully launched the long anticipated non-custodial staking on the mainnet. As one of the biggest mining pools for ZIL we’ve been cooperating closely with Zilliqa team from the very start and we are happy to cooperate further. Staking was on our radar for a long time since we are aiming to bring our miners the best profitability options.
Today we are happy to announce the launch of Ezil.me staking node which means that staking services will be easily accessible for our miners and you can not only get your mining rewards in ZIL but also get involved in staking and enjoy extra profits.
According to Zilliqa team the estimated annual returns will vary from 6% to 12% depending on the percentage of circulating supply locked in staking. Staking rewards are distributed every 24–48 hours.
On top of that early adopters will be eligible for rewards in gZIL — newly launched governance token. For every 1,000 $ZIL earned as a staking reward, 1 gZIL will be issued to you as a bonus. This is a limited time offer valid for approximately one year.
There are 2 options to start staking with us:
Please mind the network fee and wallet's min balance requirements when sending your transaction to staking. We recommend having on your balance a little more than the amount you plan to stake.
1. Via Zillion
Tap Sign-in for Delegators and select your sign-in options. We go for ZilPay.
Click on Unlock the wallet.
Select Ezil.me in the list of operators.
Enter the amount you would like to allocate for staking and click Stake to proceed.
Double check the amount and confirm your transaction.
After that you will be taken back to the main page where you can see your staking overview.
2. Via Moonlet wallet
Please note that you will have to download the Moonlet app for iOS or Android or use Google Chrome extension and have your ZIL transferred to the wallet prior to staking.
Upd: Some users reported an issue when they cannot find Ezil.me in the list of operators so we would suggest going with the first option which is Zillion interface.
Tap “Stake Now” button from the dashboard.
Select Ezil.me node to stake with us.
Confirm the amount and sign all transactions.
Refresh and see your complete transactions.
Congratulations! You’re onboard!
