Step 3 - manage dApp Staking

Once you have staked, new options to manage your dApp staking will appear on the main page:
Add: you can add more tokens in dApp staking.
Unbond: here you can select how many tokens you want to unbond from your staked amount.
Claim (top of page): claim your rewards from all dApps you staked on. Every ERA you can claim for your rewards, but we recommend doing this once every week.
