Staking FAQs

What is staking?

It is locking tokens, in this case $KIAN, in a smart contract to earn tokens as a reward. The smart contract calculates the APR based token rewards on the amount you have staked and how long your tokens have been in the staking pool.

What is consensus does Porta use?

Porta uses a Nominated Proof-of-Stake (NPoS) mechanism.

Are you offering single-sided staking?

Yes, you will only require the $KIAN token to stake and receive $KIAN as a reward for staking.

How are the rewards calculated?

The rewards are calculated using smart contracts. The amount of $KIAN rewards you will receive is based on the amount of $KIAN you stake, how long you stake for and the APR in your staking pool of choice.

What is minimum lock up?

It means how long your staked $KIAN is locked into your selected staking pool.

When will I get my $KIAN token as a reward?

You can claim your $KIAN tokens as a reward each day at 6pm UTC.

What does “initially” capped mean?

Each staking pool has a certain amount of $KIAN allocated to it. The team has the flexibility to add additional staking pools in the future.

Is there a minimum amount of $KIAN I need to stake?

There is no set amount but you will need $KIAN to participate in staking.

When can I withdraw my staked amount?

After your staked amount has surpassed the minimum lock-up period, you will be able to complete a withdraw of your staked $KIAN.

Are there any deposit fees that I need to pay in order to stake?

The only fee you will pay is the network transaction fee.
