How to Stake Your OMI Tokens
Staking OMI through AscendEX Earn is simple and intuitive. If you already have an account you can skip to step 2 below.
Note: AscendEX has recently been through an ecosystem rebranding and update. The instructions linked below are still valid, however, the appearance of the new AscendEX desktop/app may vary.
1. Register an Account
Before you can participate in staking you’ll first need to register an account with AscendEX. You can do this through the desktop browser and/or the AscendEX mobile app, available on Android and iOS.
2. Deposit Your OMI Tokens
Once your account is registered and verified you can deposit your OMI, or purchase them directly on the exchange (pairing OMI/USDT) if you don’t already hold OMI tokens.
AscendEX ONLY accepts ERC20 OMI tokens.
If you are still holding the old GoChain OMI token or wrapped OMI (wOMI) tokens please swap them for the new ERC20 token before depositing, using these instructions.
Once they have been received and fully confirmed you will be able to participate in staking.
Reminder: If you currently store your OMI tokens in the VeVe app, you have layer 2 OMI and cannot send them directly to AscendEX to stake🚨
You will have to withdraw your tokens back to layer 1 (base-chain) Ethereum using the IMX bridge before depositing to the exchange:

What is Staking?
Staking typically refers to tokens on proof of stake blockchains, allowing token holders to participate in supporting the network- by running a node. However, in many instances, there is a substantial investment required to run an independent validator (32 ETH for an Ethereum node, for example).
The term staking, however, is used interchangeably by exchanges and crypto-platforms to reference generating a yield on your token holdings.
Is Staking Safe?
Staking is a safe way to accrue rewards on your OMI tokens, however, there is always some risk involved, particularly as you are trusting a third party (AscendEX) to custody your assets.
AscendEX Earn also allows you to use your staked assets as collateral for futures and/or margin trading. This is incredibly high risk, particularly as crypto markets can be incredibly volatile, and you could lose your staked collateral (OMI tokens) if you are not an experienced/professional trader. We do not recommend this for beginners.
How Do I Unstake My OMI Tokens?
Unstaking your tokens is as easy as staking them, and you can follow the instructions below to do so:
While there are no lockup periods on your staked OMI, please bear in mind there is a 7-day unstaking period once you have confirmed you would like to redeem your stake/rewards, at no cost to you. You can also elect to have your assets unstaked instantly, however, this will incur a 3% fee.
I Store my OMI on VeVe- Can I Use Those?
If you currently store your OMI tokens in your VeVe app wallet you have layer 2 OMI and cannot send them directly to AscendEX to stake. ⚠️️
You will first need to withdraw your tokens back to layer 1 (base-chain) Ethereum using the IMX bridge, before depositing them to the exchange.
