👤 How to create a new Account via One-Click Login

Note: The suggested path is to create an account via Mnemonic phrase or delegate via Ledger, I’m illustrating this procedure only because is the first time it is applied to Cosmos wallets and people might be not familiar with it.

🔒 How to stake your $ATOM

🔓 Claim your Rewards & Redelegate

Don’t forget to [Claim] your rewards from time to time and to use the new [Undelegate] & [Redelegate] features to manage your $ATOM with the maximum flexibility!
1. Click on [Claim] to reclaim all your pending staking rewards.
2. Click on [Re-Delegate] to change your validator. You can do this immediately the first time, then you must wait 21 days before re-delegate again.
3. Choose [Undelegate] to remove your ATOM from staking. During the 21 days of unbounding you will not be able to manage your tokens or gain staking rewards. Once you start the unbounding you can’t interrupt it.

Please note that to successfully complete the operations mentioned above, you must have in your [Available Balance] enough ATOM to cover the transaction fee, so pay attention to always keep a minimum of funds not staked (0.1 ATOM is enough).
Keep in mind that if you re-delegate to another validator, delegate more ATOM to the same validator or start the unbounding, all your pending rewards will be automatically claimed & added to your available balance.
