Ready to stake? Stake2Earn started

The Astar Staking Festival #Stake2Earn is LIVE!

The main reason for this cool event is to educate our community around dApp staking. After our Staking Festival, we will launch dApp staking with the projects that are built on Astar Network at that time. The Staking Festival will give you more insight into dApp staking and our build2earn protocol with the same look & feel.

Staking pools

For you, as a user, it doesn’t matter what pool you use for staking. The return for staking in a pool is the same. Each pool is managed by one of our Ambassadors or Core-Team member.

  • Each pool can have a max of 512 stakers.
  • The minimum amount to stake is 500 ASTR. (+500 ASTR was the basic reward for 5 DOT during the crowdloan and minimum contribution)
  • Every ERA you can claim your rewards, please note that it doesn’t have to be you to press the claim button. If the pool owner or anyone else from the stake pool presses the claim button, you will also get your ERA rewards. If you cant click on the claim, there is nothing you need to do.


🔲 You have access to an Astar native address (recommended extension: Polkadot JS).

🔲 You have at least 500 ASTR tokens in your wallet. You can use your locked/vested tokens in our staking pools.

About Astar

Astar Network (previously known as Plasm) is a dApp hub on Polkadot that supports Ethereum, WebAssembly, and layer 2 solutions like ZK Rollups. Astar aims to be a multi-chain smart contract platform that will support multiple blockchains and virtual machines. Polkadot Relay Chain doesn’t support smart contracts. That’s why it’s important for the ecosystem to have a parachain that enables this for all developers who want to build in the Polkadot ecosystem. Astar is here to provide the best solution for all developers by supporting EVM and making a parachain where EVM and WASM smart contracts can co-exist and communicate with each other.
