How to Stake EVMOS (Evmos)

Learn how to stake EVMOS (Evmos) using Blockdaemon in this step-by-step guide.

Evmos is an application-agnostic blockchain fully compatible with Ethereum and interoperable with other BFT chains through IBC. Evmos allows projects to run Ethereum as a Cosmos application-specific backend. EVMOS is the native cryptocurrency token on the Evmos network and is easy to stake with Blockdaemon.

Evmos is built to be scalable and proof-of-stake based, running on top of the Tendermint Core consensus engine. This lets developers use Ethereum’s specific capabilities while enjoying Tendermint’s proof-of-stake implementation.

Follow the steps below to stake your EVMOS:

Step 1 – Access Your Wallet

  • For this example, we are using a Keplr wallet browser extension.
  • If you don’t have the Keplr wallet, you can download the Keplr wallet here.
  • This guide is broadly applicable to other wallets, although specific details may vary.

Step 2 – Select the Evmos Blockchain

  • At the top of your Keplr wallet browser extension, select the blockchain dropdown menu.

    ],
    "align": "center",
    "border": true
    }
    ]
    }
    [/block]
  • Scroll down until you see the Evmos network, and select it.
  • This will update your wallet to show your Evmos balance.
  • If you do not have Evmos tokens in your Keplr wallet, you will need to deposit some before staking.
