How to stake ETH

Connect your wallet

BE SURE to select the ‘Ethereum Mainnet’ network in your wallet. Otherwise you get an error message.

  1. Visit Ankr Staking and click Stake in the product menu.

  2. Locate the Ethereum (ETH) box and click Stake at old version in it.

  3. You are prompted to grant Ankr Staking access to your wallet. Click Grant Access to proceed.

  4. Select a wallet to connect.

  5. Successful connection to Ankr Staking is indicated in the top right corner.

Stake your ETH

💡

Make sure you have enough ETH to cover the gas fees for you transactions.

Also, remember that Ethereum currently doesn't support unstaking. You will only be able to unstake with the Shanghai upgrade which is planned for ~Q2/Q3 2023.

  1. Visit Ankr Staking and click Stake in the product menu.

  2. Locate the Ethereum (ETH) box and click Stake in it.

  3. Enter the desired amount of ETH to stake, choose the token, and click Get aETHb or Get aETHc respectively.

  4. Confirm the transaction in your wallet.

  5. Add the liquid staking token to your wallet, clicking Add aETHb to wallet or Add aETHc to wallet respectively.

  6. Click Go to dashboard to see the added liquid staking token. You may need to wait a little for the transaction to finalize and Dashboard to automatically update.

💡

Ankr sends the collectively pooled 32 ETH once it is accumulated to the nodes. Until that happens, you have the option to unstake if desired.

If you don't see your liquid staking token balance

If you don't see the balance in your wallet, do the following:

  1. Visit Ankr Staking Dashboard.
  2. Find your liquid staking token, click the three-dot menu, and click Copy token address.
  3. Insert the token address directly into your wallet (e.g. MetaMask).
