Become a validator

In the staking feature, validators have the potential to maximize their rewards. Through the DPoS (Delegated Proof-of-Stake) model, delegators can 'vote' for prospective validators by staking tokens, thereby increasing the likelihood of these validators being selected. To create a pool, the process involves installing a node (accessible from the Staking Page in a wallet) and subsequently staking on the created pool. Notably, the total stake amount of a candidate on their own pool must meet or exceed the candidate's minimum stake (1M VLX). Once a new active pool is established, the candidate becomes eligible to be chosen as a validator at the beginning of the next staking epoch, to start recieiving rewards.

Q&A about Staking on DEXs

Why is it crucial to conduct your own research?

Delve into thorough research when considering an exchange. Explore user feedback, the exchange's reputation, and how it handles past security issues. Dig deep to uncover potential negative stories associated with the exchange.

How does staking operate?

Staking involves locking up your assets to contribute to and secure the network's blockchain. In return for participation and asset locking, validators receive staking rewards in the respective cryptocurrency.

How can one avoid falling victim to scammers?

Exercise caution when choosing digital currency exchanges and engaging in cryptocurrency investments. Be aware of potential scams and frauds. Ensure the exchange has a physical address available; if not, it's advisable to steer clear.

Can Velas assist in resolving exchange issues?

The Velas team and company are not responsible for issues on third-party exchanges and wallets. Users should reach out to the support center and team of the specific exchange or wallet where problems arise.

What are the different types of exchanges?

Centralized Exchanges (CEXs) operate on a large scale with a business model similar to traditional asset exchanges. Decentralized Exchanges (DEXs) are peer-to-peer marketplaces facilitating direct transactions between crypto traders. Popular DEXs like Uniswap and Sushiwap run on the Ethereum blockchain.

How can you safeguard your account?

Implement various security measures to protect your crypto:

  • Properly back up your seed words.
  • Activate Two-Factor Authentication for your exchange.
  • Use a robust password for crypto protection.
