Injective Mainnet Staking Walkthrough

Welcome to Injective’s Mainnet staking walkthrough!

This guide will show you how to stake your INJ and start earning rewards. Injective’s user interface abstracts away the complexity from the end-user and allows everyone to stake their tokens in just a few steps. Injective token holders can transfer ERC-20 INJ tokens from the Ethereum Mainnet to the Injective Chain through the Injective Peggy Bridge and delegate INJ to one of our genesis validators.

Note: If you have not withdrawn your tokens yet from Equinox Staking, you can access this link here and then follow the guide to stake your tokens on Mainnet! The Equinox and Mainnet Staking dashboards are separate.

  1. Connect Your Wallet
