What is Automated Staking on CEX.IO and how does it work?
With Automated Staking, users need to hold coins in their CEX.IO balances to earn potential monthly rewards. No additional actions are required! Automated Staking rewards are distributed automatically to the CEX.IO balance. Automated balance replenishment allows users to increase potential staking rewards through consecutive staking periods. Customers who use Automated Staking can trade and stake funds simultaneously.
In addition, users are free to move their funds anytime. You can add funds to the CEX.IO balance to increase potential rewards, or withdraw funds to stop participating in Automated Staking.

How do I start and stop earning Automated Staking rewards?
- Sign in to your CEX.IO account.
- Deposit or buy tokens you would like to stake.
- When funds appear in your CEX.IO balance, you can start participating in Automated Staking right away.
To stop earning Automated Staking rewards, your holdings in certain assets must become lower than the minimum holding requirements. This can happen when you withdraw your funds to the external wallet, or move them to the staking sub-account.
May I use the CEX.IO Mobile App for Automated Staking?
If you stake coins for more than one staking period, you can find information about distributed staking rewards, by tapping Wallet and then selecting the cryptocurrency you stake. More information about staked coins can be found on the Automated Staking dashboard on the CEX.IO website.
How often will I receive Automated Staking rewards?
Potential Automated Staking rewards are recalculated every hour. It allows us to determine the exact time period users own a cryptocurrency, and offers users flexible interaction with cryptocurrency while staking. If staking cryptocurrency for only a portion of the period, you still earn proportional Automated Staking rewards.
These rewards are calculated based on the amount of coins you stored, and the estimated annual reward. If you have stakeable coins on open limit orders, then these funds will be included for calculating Automated Staking rewards until the orders execute. After the orders’ execution, the potential rewards will be adjusted accordingly.

Why are there minimum holding requirements for Automated Staking?
Every cryptocurrency available for Automated Staking on CEX.IO has its own minimum holding requirements. If the number of coins on your CEX.IO balance is less than the minimum requirements, then you will not receive Automated Staking rewards at the end of the staking period. Once the amount of coins has reached the required baseline, you will start participating in Automated Staking right away.
However, there is another way to stake with CEX.IO. Our Staking service, which offers a similar user experience, empowers you to earn rewards with no minimum holding requirements.
How does the “rewards calculator” work?
- Select a coin you are staking, or going to stake.
- Enter the number of coins you have on your CEX.IO balance, or plan to have.
- The staking calculator will automatically calculate what staking rewards you can potentially earn for different periods of time.
The calculations made by the rewards calculator reflect “the most probable percentage of the reward,” because the estimated annual reward may change over time.
What information can I find on the Automated Staking dashboard?
- the list of cryptocurrencies available for staking;
- the current market price of stakeable cryptocurrencies;
- the current estimated annual reward;
- your balance in stakeable cryptocurrencies;
- your shares (represent your current staking power);
- the amount of earned coins during the current staking period;
- your staking portfolio structure;
- history of staking rewards’ settlement.
On the Automated Staking dashboard, you can also add funds or buy more crypto to increase your potential rewards. For that click the relevant button next to the token you would like to stake.
How may I increase staking rewards?
If you want to increase your rewards, you can choose a slightly less flexible approach and take part in our Staking service. In that case, you would need to move your funds to a dedicated staking sub-account. Rewards will be distributed daily, but you will need to claim your potential staking rewards to move them to your CEX.IO balance.
Funds stored in the staking sub-account can’t be used for trading. However, they remain liquid, meaning you can move them in and out of the sub-account whenever you want.
