Start staking

This document will show you how to start staking (also known as bonding) tokens on SubWallet.

If you want to nominate for dApp

Step 1: Open SubWallet and choose the Staking tab. Then click the "+" icon on the upper right corner to start staking.

Step 2: Choose the "Nominate" tab in the "Add to Bond" screen and enter the staking information.

If you are in all-accounts mode like the current example, you would need to choose the staking account.

If you have already been in a single account, you would not have to select account. Your Step 2 would be as the following image:

We suggest you pay close attention to the dApp you are choosing. When selecting pool, SubWallet supports you with the latest record of dApp details. Please click the three-dot icon on the right-hand side of each pool to see the pool details.

You could use the sort function to find the most suitable validator according to your needs. Please click the sort icon on the upper right corner and choose your sorting criteria.

We also identify destroyed/ inactive pool. We suggest that you always choose an active pool to stake with.

To filter out active pool, click the fader icon on the right-hand side of the search validator bar. Then click the checkbox "Active validator".

An example of a complete input for pooled staking would be the following image:

Click "Stake" to continue.

Step 3: Check the information and confirm your staking request by clicking "Approve".

Step 4: The result is in!

You can see your staking transaction in the History tab.

If you click "view transaction", the wallet will show you the latest transaction record in your transaction history which corresponds with the extrinsic hash of this action.

The best practice to keep in mind is to always stake slightly above the minimum active stake.

To get to the transaction history tab, please follow this guide.
