Stake NEAR

Learn how to stake NEAR with your connected wallet.

This article briefly guides staking NEAR using the Blockdaemon app - NEAR Dashboard.


Important Notes:

  • Ensure you have enough NEAR to pay a gas fee.
  • The minimum stake amount is 1 NEAR.
  • When staking NEAR, your rewards are automatically restaked until you decide to unstake them. Your funds are staked to the following addresses:
    • Vote account address: blockdaemon.poolv1.near.
    • Validator public key: 8e2922ee58ed8f6c5533e144...cc81ece428193950f05a0263.
