Usage Notes

Staking CRO

One can stake the CRO token via the Crypto.com DeFi Wallet.

Notes:

  • no minimum stake requirement for CRO
  • The DeFi Wallet App supports the option to choose among whitelisted validators for staking and redelegation (change delegation from existing validator to another validator)

Unstaking CRO (28-day unbonding period)

Notes:

  • Unstaking CRO need to undergo a 28-day unbonding period as enforced by the Crypto.org Chain. This is to protect against a Validator attacking the Crypto.org Chain and then immediately withdrawing the stake amount.
  • During this unbonding period, any unbonding balance will not accrue any block rewards, which should be taken into consideration when comparing against the returns of staking via Crypto.com App or Exchange.
