What is staking?

In Proof of Stake (PoS) blockchains, validators are in charge of verifying transactions as they are broadcast to the network. They maintain system efficiency, participate in voting and form new blocks in the blockchain.

With Polkadex and their nominated Proof of Stake (nPOS) consensus, anybody in the network can stake by nominating to a validator and earn interest on their PDEX holdings.

Why PDEXnode.com?

PDEXnode.com is a Polkadex community validator with a goal to create a safe & secure staking experience focused on a strong, vibrant community. We are experienced technical team that can ensure high responsiveness, and build a long-term reputation of reliability.

How do I stake and earn rewards?

Before you start staking you will need the Polkadot.js browser extension.

Then you will need to create an account on the Polkadex Mainnet. You can do that here.

If you need to migrate your tokens, please see the official migration guide here.
