Overview

Fantom uses a fluid staking model where stakers either can stake without a lock-up period for the minimum APR or select a lock-up period between 14 to 365 days for an increased APR.
The rewards percentage increases linearly with time, rewarding the most committed stakers more. This way, the reward schedule combines long-term sustainability for the network and flexibility for stakers.

Rewards

In the fluid staking model, your effective APR:
  • increases proportionally with your lock-up period
  • decreases proportionally with the average lock-up period of all stakers
  • decreases proportionally with the total amount of FTM staked by all stakers
