For Stakers


Do you love to stake? Or do you want to support your favorite project on Astar Network or Shiden Network?

Discover dApp Staking, a unique mechanism that allows communities to support their favorite teams by staking ASTR or SDN with them. When staking ASTR or SDN on a dApp, users not only support the development of innovative apps but also receive staking rewards from inflation.

You can educate yourself more by reading the technical documentation about dApp Staking.


Before reading the dApp Staking section for stakers, make sure you understand the concept of periods, subperiods and eras, as well as the dApp Staking V3 parameters explained here.

Basic Staking Rewards:

dApp Staking rewards are generated only if tokens have been staked on a dApp for at least 1 full Era and distributed on the following Era (Era+1);


For stakers, if you stake today, you will start earning tomorrow (next era), and the rewards will be distributed the day after tomorrow.
For dApps If you get into a tier today, you will start earning rewards tomorrow (next era) and the rewards will be distributed the day after tomorrow.

For stakers, the APR is the same for all stakers, regardless of which dApp they stake on;
For dApps, staking rewards depends on the Tier system, dApps go into rewards tier based on the amount of tokens staked by users.

Rewards must be claimed before trying to stake or unstake. (If using the Astar Portal, the interface will automatically claim the rewards when trying to stake)

If a project is unregistered from dApp Staking, staked tokens on that project will still receive basic rewards as long as the tokens remain staked.


There is no rewards during the Unlocking period when unstaking from dApp Staking;

Bonus Staking Rewards:

If an user stake on dApp(s) during the Voting Subperiod and keep the same staked amount or higher on a dApp through the whole Build&Earn Subperiod, they will be eligible for the Bonus Reward for this dApp.



  • User stake 1500 ASTR on dApp A and 1000 ASTR on dApp B during the Votingsubperiod.
  • During the Build&Earn subperiod, user move 500 ASTR from dApp B to dApp A;
  • He now has 2000 ASTR on dApp A and 500 ASTR on dApp B, so he's still eligible for the Bonus reward for dApp A but no longer for dApp B because the tokens staked on dApp B are less than those staked at the end of the Voting subperiod (500 < 1000 ASTR).
  • To be eligible for the Bonus reward for dApp B, the user must stake an additional 500 ASTR on dApp B to reach 1000 ASTR.

Bonus rewards for a period can only be claimed after the period finishes.


  • You need to keep a minimum of 10 ASTR or 5 SDN tokens as transferable after staking.
  • You need to claim to receive your rewards, we recommend claiming your staking rewards once a week.
  • When unlocking tokens, there is a unlocking period on Astar and on Shiden. The unlocking period lenghts can be consulted here. Please note that this is based on a perfect block production of 12s. In case of any delay, your unlocking period can be a little longer.
