Staking $ATOM is a good option if you plan on holding your tokens. While you do that, you can earn something like 15% and delegate your tokens to validators (which a good validator is 01node) you think can help the ecosystem grow thus giving $ATOM valid reasons to rise up in price.
1. Staking risk reduction
Every passive income has some risks involved with it and so does staking $ATOM to validators and the key risks are as follows:
a. Slashing due to double signing or downtime.
b. Validator increasing commission fee.
c. Validator disconnecting services.
Validator uptime is one of the most important metrics to watch out for. The COSMOS ecosystem provides quite strict conditions for slashing for a simple node. For the records, 01node since the genesis of its participation has always experienced an 99.9% uptime.
2. Less commission fee
Block rewards are shared with nominators, but the validators set the commission that they take out for their costs before profits are given out. This rate can vary greatly. Currently, 01node offers 5% commission fees, which increases your ability to earn more and spend less.
3. Auto-compounding of staked $ATOM
If you are in for the long term, Auto-compounding means that instead of having to re-stake your assets manually from time to time in order to get the best APY, it will be done automatically for you! 01node offers this service on Restake.app
How to use REStake
- Choose a network. Some don’t support Authz yet but many do.
- Delegate to any validators (e.g 01node) who offers the REStake service.
- Enable REStake on the validators you want to compound rewards.
- Watch the countdown timer and profit!
