The steps to participate in the Kava StakeDrop campaign are identical to that of the Cosmos Network campaign. The Cosmos Network Campaign is still ongoing, with 4 days to go and over 42,000 XPRT tokens remaining to be distributed. You can read on how to participate in the Cosmos Network campaign here:

This tutorial will help KAVA holders learn how to stake their KAVA tokens and earn staking rewards, in addition to how to send the Magic Transaction to also earn XPRT tokens as part of Persistence’s StakeDrop.

How to Participate in the Kava StakeDrop?

Participation in StakeDrop is a simple two step process:

  1. Stake your KAVA tokens on the network (not via exchanges- exchange stakers will not be eligible to earn XPRT rewards)
  2. Send the Magic Transaction

How to Stake KAVA Tokens?

KAVA holders can earn staking rewards, thereby increasing their KAVA holdings by simply staking their KAVA tokens with any one of the active validators on the network.

To stake KAVA tokens you must first buy some KAVA tokens and send them to a wallet that supports staking.

Once you have transferred your tokens to a staking-supporting wallet, you may proceed with staking your tokens on the network to earn staking rewards.

We have used the Cosmostation wallet for this tutorial, but you may use any wallet that supports KAVA staking.

Step 1: Choose a Validator and Delegate

Once you have tokens in your wallet, you need to click on “Delegate” and select a validator of your choice to delegate your tokens (we suggest you do your due diligence before delegating to any validator).

The images below show the delegation process using the Cosmostation wallet as an example.

You have now staked your KAVA tokens and will begin earning staking rewards!

To earn XPRT rewards as well during the StakeDrop, follow the steps below.

Begin Earning XPRT Rewards: Send Magic Transaction

To earn XPRT tokens on top of staking rewards, you need to send a small transaction of 0.001 KAVA to a designated wallet address that will be provided on our website on the Kava StakeDrop page 72 hours prior to the start of the Kava StakeDrop campaign (12:00 AM PST, 23rd November 2020).

Step 1: Click on “Send” on the bottom right-hand corner of your screen

Step 4: Insert memo

This is the most important step of the process. If the “memo” field is left empty then your participation in StakeDrop will not be considered.

Please input an ERC20 wallet address in the “memo” field. This ERC20 address will be the wallet in which you will receive your XPRT rewards. All XPRT rewards you have earned during the Kava StakeDrop campaign will be transferred to this wallet after token generation. This field should not contain any text or additional characters. It should only contain your ERC20 wallet address.

Step 5: Select transaction fee

Select the transaction fee from a range of fees by moving the slider.

Step 6: Confirm your transaction (Magic Transaction)

Before confirming your transaction, please ensure that the “memo” field contains the correct ERC20 wallet address (your ERC20 wallet address in which you would like to receive your XPRT rewards).
