Delegators - FAQ

What is the minimum stake amount?​

1 BONE is the minimum stake amount. (These are test numbers subject to change anytime)

Why does my transaction take so long?​

All staking transactions of Shibarium happen on Ethereum for security reasons.
The time it takes to complete a transaction depends on the gas fees you have allowed, as well as the amount of congestion on Ethereum at the time. When you use the "Speed Up" option, you can increase the gas fee to expedite the transaction.

Which wallets are currently supported?​

Just MetaMask at the time being.

Are hardware wallets supported?​

No, hardware wallets are not supported as of now.

I have completed my delegation, where can I check the details?​

You can check the details by clicking on My Account.

Do I need ETH to pay for Gas fees?​

Yes, gas fees must be paid in ETH, the Ethereum network's native cryptocurrency.

Do I need to deposit Bone tokens to the Shibarium Testnet network for staking?​

No. All your funds need to be on the Ethereum Network.

When I try to do the transaction my Confirm button is disabled.​

This might be because you have an insufficient amount of the native token necessary to pay for the transaction.

When does reward get distributed?​

Rewards are paid out after every checkpoint is submitted.

Why does reward keep getting decreased every checkpoint?​

Rewards earned will depend on the amount of locked supply in the network at each checkpoint. It is expected that this will vary significantly as the number of BONE tokens locked in staking contracts increases. The rewards will start out higher, and then decrease as the locked supply percentage rises. The checkpoints capture this change in locked supply, which is then used to calculate rewards.

How can I claim my rewards?​

Once the unbonding period is complete, the Claim Stake button will be enabled and you can then claim your staked tokens. The tokens will be transferred to your account.

No. Once you unbound you stop receiving rewards.

How many transactions does the delegation require?​

Delegation requires 2 transactions one after the other - one to approve and another one to deposit.

What does Redelegate Rewards mean?​

I have earned rewards while delegating. What happens if I add additional funds to the same validator node?​

If you have not re-delegated your rewards before delegating additional funds to the same validator node, your rewards will be withdrawn automatically.
In case you don't want that to happen, re-delegate your rewards before delegating additional funds.

I have delegated my tokens via MetaMask on the Staking dashboard. Do I need to keep my system or device on?​

No. Once your Delegation transactions are confirmed, and you can see your tokens reflected in the Total Stake and New Reward cards/sections, then you are done. There is no need to keep your system or device on.

No. You can choose any node.
