FAQ

What is Automated Staking on CEX.IO and how does it work?

CEX.IO empowers users to stake crypto in two different ways — Automated Staking and Staking. Automated Staking can be described as a more flexible approach to generating staking rewards compared to our new Staking service.

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?

In order to start earning crypto rewards with Automated Staking, follow these steps:

  • 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?

Yes. If you buy or deposit cryptocurrency using the CEX.IO mobile app, your funds are credited to the CEX.IO balance. Holding cryptocurrency in CEX.IO balance is the only thing needed to participate in 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?

CEX.IO distributes Automated Staking rewards to users once a month at the end of the staking period. You can find the date of the next reward settlement on the dedicated dashboard.

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.

Does CEX.IO have a lock period for Automated Staking?

No. Unlike other popular services, CEX.IO empowers you to take advantage of staking with no lock periods. With Automated Staking, you are free to withdraw your coins whenever you want. Furthermore, you can trade and stake crypto simultaneously.

What is the estimated annual reward and why may it differ?

Estimated annual reward determines potential staking rewards. Each asset offers its own reward, which depends on a variety of factors, including blockchain network performance. Changes in these factors affect the rewards distributed at the end of the staking period. That is why the reward is called estimated. Check this CEX.IO University article to find out what may affect the estimated annual reward.

Why are there minimum holding requirements for Automated Staking?

CEX.IO offers a convenient and straightforward way to benefit from Automated Staking. We assume the burden of finding the right node for staking, or setting and maintaining it. Though you pay nothing upfront for staking, maintaining staking operations can be costly and laborious for the platform. To make the Automated Staking process smooth and efficient, we set holding requirements. These requirements are not high, as we endeavor to make Automated Staking affordable for all users.

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?

With this feature, you can calculate potential staking rewards for different periods of time. For that:

  • 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?

On the dashboard, you can see:

  • 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?

Automated Staking empowers you to generate rewards without interrupting common interactions with crypto. With it, you can move assets anytime, use staked funds for trading, and enjoy the automatic distribution of rewards to your CEX.IO balance. However, such flexibility implies lowered 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.
