How to stake VeChain (VET): A step-by-step guide

  1. 1

    Buy tokens

    In order to stake VeChain, you need to have it. To obtain VeChain, you'll need to purchase it. You can choose from these popular exchanges.

  2. 2

    Select a wallet

    Once you have VET, you'll need to choose a VeChain wallet to store your tokens. Ledger is a popular option.

  3. 3

    Stake your tokens

    Staking pools are a great option when staking VET. It's easier and faster to get up-and-running. A staking pool is a group of validators who combine their VET, which gives them a higher chance of validating transactions and earning rewards. You can do this through your wallet's interface.

  4. 4

    Start earning rewards

    You'll need to wait for your deposit to be confirmed by your wallet. Once it's confirmed, you'll automatically validate transactions on the VeChain network. You'll be rewarded with VET for these validations.

Things to consider

There are transaction and staking pool fees you need to consider. There can also be a waiting period before you start earning rewards. The staking pool will need to generate blocks, and this can take some time.

Custodial staking

The instructions above are for decentralized, non-custodial staking. We always recommend using non-custodial staking as you're in control of your keys and it's much safer.

In case you want to use a custodial staking platform, all you need to do is deposit VET into your custodial wallet and it will automatically start earning rewards. Some platforms will require a minimum amount of time to stake your VET tokens, while others are completely flexible.
