At this stage, the auction process requires attention and patience. If you are taking part, please read all of the documentation provided. In particular, we encourage you to read the ‘Getting started’ and ‘Auction info’ pages on the staking site before carefully completing each step. It is important to do your own research and it is your responsibility to secure your wallet and the tokens stored within it.

Option 1: Take part in the auction directly

Yields are variable, and depend on the final price of each slot.

Option 2: Pledge to a pool

Yields are fixed, depending on the pool you choose to join.

If you would like more information, we encourage you to watch our staking video with head of research Jonathan Ward. If you have any questions, please get in touch with us on Telegram, on Twitter or email us at info@fetch.ai. We will be happy to help.
