Stake ANKR

We have made a separate testnet version of ANKR Delegated Staking on Goerli (opens in a new tab)!
Anybody interested to test Liquid Staking without spending mainnet ETH, come and try it!

Currently, ANKR can only be staked on Ethereum. If you have ANKR on any other chains, please bridge it first to stake it.
Before staking, make sure you have some ETH to pay the gas fee for your staking transaction.
You can claim or restake your rewards after the locking period of 84–91 days. This period applies to each staking transaction independently.
However, your stake will keep generating rewards until you unstake, whether or not the locking period has ended.

  1. Visit Ankr Staking (opens in a new tab).
  2. In the Delegated staking section, click Stake under ANKR. ANKR Delegated Staking box
  3. If you're on a different network, you may be prompted to switch to the correct one in MetaMask — click Switch network. Switch to correct network
  4. Click Switch network in MetaMask to confirm the switching. Confirm switching in MetaMask
  5. Choose a Node Provider (currently only Ankr; more providers in future releases). Choose a Node Provider
  6. Enter the desired amount of ANKR to stake (min. 1000 ANKR) and click Approve to approve Ankr Staking access to your ANKR. Enter the desired amount of ANKR tokens to stake
