Staking your tokens is a profitable strategy because it allows you to earn more tokens over time while still holding onto your original investment.
It is important to note that while you are staking your tokens, they still remain in your wallet and you have full control over them. At any time, you have the option to unstake your tokens. The unstaking process may vary depending on the blockchain and involve a waiting period. Once the unstaking period is complete, your tokens will become liquid again, which allows you to use them for transactions or sell them on an exchange.
1 – Install KEPLR Wallet
In order to start interacting with the Cosmos Ecosystem, it is necessary to install a browser extension called KEPLR. To obtain detailed instructions on how to do this, please refer to our guide.
2 – Purchase GRAV token on Osmosis
To participate in staking, you will need to have ATOM or OSMOSIS tokens. There are two options available to acquire these tokens:
- Purchase ATOM or OSMOSIS tokens on a centralized exchange such as Binance and transfer them to your KEPLR wallet. Our step-by-step guide video can assist you in this process.
- Use the Gravity Bridge to transfer your funds from the Ethereum blockchain to the Cosmos ecosystem. Please refer to our step-by-step guide on using the bridge.
3 – Staking your token with best validator : Aviaone 🟢
Once you have successfully acquired ATOM or OSMOSIS tokens and added them to your KEPLR wallet, you can now start engaging with the Cosmos ecosystem. One of the ways to do that is by swapping your tokens for GRAV, the native token of Gravity Bridge.
To begin the swapping process, you need to open the KEPLR extension and navigate to the Osmosis website. Connect your wallet to the platform and from there, select the Swap button and choose the token pair you want to swap, such as ATOM/GRAV or OSMO/GRAV.
Enter the amount of tokens you wish to swap and the system will automatically calculate the exchange rate and show you the estimated amount of GRAV you will receive. If you are happy with the transaction details, simply hit the Swap button and confirm the transaction on your wallet.
Now your GRAV assets are showing up on the left menu called Assets.
Now that your GRAV tokens have been transferred to the OSMOSIS blockchain, the next step is to withdraw them to the Native blockchain of Gravity Bridge. To do so, simply click on the “Withdraw” button.
A popup will shows up asking you to approve a new network on your Wallet, just click on Approve.
A new popup will appear and prompt you to select the destination address on the Gravity Bridge blockchain. You can simply click on the “edit” button and the correct address will be automatically added. If you wish to receive the tokens in a different wallet than the one used to withdraw, you can manually copy and paste the address. To confirm the correctness of the address, you can open your KEPLR wallet and select the Gravity Bridge network. Once the correct address is filled in, you can proceed with the withdrawal.
Please enter the desired amount of tokens that you wish to withdraw onto the native Gravity Bridge blockchain.
Now that your GRAV tokens are in your KEPLR wallet and on the native Gravity Bridge blockchain, you’re ready to start staking. Let’s get started!
