Staking Pool

Polkadot pools allow users to lock in DOT and earn staking rewards. Unlike nominating, staking via pools requires only a small amount of DOT, and the pool manages nominees on your behalf.

In our pool we nominate the 16 best performing validators and automatically compound your rewards. This way we maximize your returns, so you get the most out of your stake!

Introducing: Auto-Compound

Compounding is the process of reinvesting your earned staking rewards to generate additional earnings. Here's how it works in our pool:

  • As you stake your DOT tokens, you earn staking rewards over time.
  • By enabling 'Permissionless Claiming' you allow others to claim pending rewards on your behalf. Our system checks if your pending staking rewards have surpassed a minimum threshold of 2.5 DOT every ERA.
  • If your accumulated rewards exceed the threshold, we take the initiative to automatically claim those rewards on your behalf. This claimed amount is automatically added to your staked bond.

By automatically reinvesting your rewards, you not only earn staking rewards on your original stake but also on the additional rewards that have been claimed. This compounding effect accelerates the growth of your overall staked position over time.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Polkadot?
Polkadot is a decentralized blockchain platform that enables multiple blockchains to interoperate and share information securely. It aims to provide scalability, security, and interoperability to different blockchain networks, allowing them to communicate and transfer assets between each other. Polkadot introduces a unique relay chain called the "Polkadot Relay Chain" that connects various specialized blockchains, known as "parachains," to form a scalable and interconnected network.
What is a Polkadot validator?
A Polkadot validator is a participant in the Polkadot network responsible for securing and validating transactions. They play a crucial role in maintaining the network's integrity and security. Validators stake DOT tokens as collateral, and in return, they have a financial incentive to act honestly and follow the network's rules. Validators contribute to the decentralization and robustness of the Polkadot network while earning rewards for their participation.
What is staking?
Polkadot token staking, also known as nominating, involves locking up DOT tokens as collateral to support the security and operation of the Polkadot network. By staking their tokens, users contribute to the network's decentralization and become part of the consensus mechanism. Stakers can nominate validators they trust to secure the network, and in return, they earn rewards in the form of additional DOT tokens.

Can I unstake my DOT any time?
Unstaking (unbonding) can be done anytime, though it takes approximately 28 days for your DOT to become transferable.
How are staking rewards claimed
We have implemented an automated rewards claiming mechanism for our staking participants. After every era (a specific time period in the Polkadot network), we automatically claim the staking rewards on behalf of our users. These rewards are then distributed directly to the user's wallet associated with their delegation. By automating the rewards claiming process, we aim to provide a hassle-free experience for our users and ensure they receive their staking rewards promptly.
Who can access my DOT after delegating?
When you delegate your DOT tokens for staking, it's important to note that you retain full ownership and control of your tokens. Delegating your DOT does not transfer ownership of your tokens to the validator or any other party. As a token holder, only you have access to your DOT funds. Delegating simply allows you to participate in the staking process and earn rewards without giving up control over your tokens. It's crucial to choose a reputable validator operator like DecentraDOT, who operates with a focus on security and transparency, to ensure the safety of your assets throughout the delegation process.
