[Archives] Kava StakeDrop Tutorial Using Keplr: How KAVA Holders Can Participate in Persistence’s StakeDrop

Persistence’s second StakeDrop campaign on Kava will launch on the 26th of November, 2020.

Magic Transactions went live at 12:00 AM PST 23rd November. KAVA holders can stake their tokens today and start sending the Magic Transaction from the 23rd to earn XPRT rewards right from the start of the campaign.

The steps to participate in the Kava StakeDrop campaign are identical to that of the Cosmos Network campaign. The Cosmos Network Campaign was a huge success, with less than 24 hours to go.

This tutorial shows KAVA holders how to stake their KAVA tokens using the Keplr Chrome Extension and earn staking rewards. It also walks them through how to send the Magic Transaction to also begin earning XPRT tokens, on top of their KAVA rewards, as part of Persistence’s StakeDrop.

How to Participate?

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

We’ve used the Keplr Chrome Extension for this tutorial, but you may use any wallet that supports KAVA staking.

Step 1: Choose a Validator and Delegate

Once you’ve tokens in your wallet, you need to click on ‘Stake’.

Select a validator of your choice to delegate your tokens to. We suggest you do your due diligence before delegating to any validator. Some validators recommended by Persistence can be found on our homepage at

Once you have made your decision of validator, click ‘Manage’, then ‘Delegate’.

Step 2: Insert Delegation Amount

Input the number of KAVA tokens you want to delegate in the input field and click ‘Delegate’.

Step 3: Insert memo (optional for delegation)

The ‘memo’ field is optional and you may leave it empty if you’re not sending your tokens to an exchange.

Step 4: Select transaction fee

Select the transaction fee from the range of fees on display.

Step 5: Approve your transaction

Click on ‘Approve’ to confirm your transaction.

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 the designated wallet address provided on our website in the Kava StakeDrop section.

Step 1: Click on ‘Send’ from your Keplr extension window

Step 2: Insert Recipient Address

Find the designated address provided on the Kava StakeDrop page of our website.

Scroll down and click on ‘Send Magic Transaction’ then read and accept the Terms & Conditions.

Copy the designated address shown on your screen.

Paste this designated address into the ‘Recipient’ field in your Keplr wallet.

Step 3: Insert send amount

Please enter “0.001” as the amount (number) of KAVA tokens to be sent.

Step 4: Insert Memo

This is the most important step of the process. If the “memo” field is left empty your registration in StakeDrop won’t be valid.

Please input your own ERC20 (Ethereum) wallet address in the “memo” field. This ERC20 address will be the wallet in which you will receive your XPRT rewards after the TGE (Token Generation Event). 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 the range of fees on display.

Step 6: Send and confirm your transaction (Magic Transaction)

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

Click ‘Send’ to send your Magic Transaction.

Once your transaction has been confirmed, you’ve now successfully registered your participation in our Kava StakeDrop campaign!

There are additional rewards for delegating your KAVA tokens to the validator. Wallets that support delegations:
