In March of 2021, the team announced a program to automatically enroll all coin holders into a staking program from that point until MainNet. This program is designed to have up to a 50% APY (3.437% compounded monthly) for purchasers in the public coin sales and all BetaNet Node Operators. For BetaNet Node operators, this program applies to both coins received before and after March 2021, but those received after only receive interest from the point they are received.
There are four options to receive accrued staking interest. Coin holders who volunteer for longer vesting periods will receive higher interest rates. This incentivizes stability in the network, which beneﬁts all coin holders.
Coin holders will use the Ethereum wallet that holds the ERC1404 xx coin they purchased (or received during BetaNet) to sign an intent and submit it to the team before MainNet Launch. Details on these submissions will be published soon.
The four planned options will be:
- 9-month vest for 100% of the principal and receive 120% of BetaNet Staking Reward
- 6-month vest for 80% of principal and receive 100% of BetaNet Staking Reward. This is the default if no selection is made.
- 3-month vest for 90% of principal and receive 45% of BetaNet Staking Reward
- 1-month vest for 100% of principal and receive 12% of BetaNet Staking Reward
- No vest and receive 2% of BetaNet Staking Reward over six months
Coins locked in a vest cannot be traded, but they can be staked for rewards and used for network governance. They become unvested at a linear rate every block over the lifetime of the vest.
The BetaNet Staking Reward will be vested over the same period as the principal vest.
