What is Zilliqa (ZIL) Staking?

Crypto staking allows you to earn interest rewards for holding cryptocurrency tokens on the native blockchain network of a cryptocurrency. To add your tokens to a blockchain network, you need an intermediary.

CEX.IO is the largest and most secure staking intermediary for staking Zilliqa (ZIL) coins. By depositing your ZIL coins to CEX.IO, you earn one of the highest Zilliqa reward rates in the industry at an 11% estimated annual yield (EAY).

How to stake ZIL Zilliqa

CEX.IO automatically stakes all your stake-able coin balances, as long as they stay in your CEX.IO account, so you do not need to do anything extra.

If you do not already have ZIL coins on your CEX.IO account, you can either

When do I receive Zilliqa staking rewards?

Staking rewards are calculated every hour on CEX.IO and sent to user wallets once a month on a specified date, which is typically the end of a staking period. One staking period on CEX.IO is usually one month.

You can find your next reward payment date on the top right corner of the Staking tab (check the Staking tab screenshot above).

Where do I track my Zilliqa staking rewards?

You can track your Zilliqa staking rewards by again going to the Staking tab on the CEX.IO Earn page. On the list of stake-able currencies on the next page, you will see all your available cryptocurrency balances and staking earnings, like the sample Zilliqa balance, shares, and earning information.

How does the Zilliqa staking calculator work?

Your staking rewards are calculated by multiplying the number of coins you stake by the estimated annual yield for that cryptocurrency. This gives your staking reward amount per year.

To calculate your staking rewards for a specific period such as a single month, you need to take the monthly ratio of that annualized figure.

CEX.IO provides a Zilliqa staking calculator for your convenience. When you scroll down on the main Staking page, you will see the Calculate your earnings section with a calculation table on the right.

First, select ZIL from the dropdown menu and then enter how many coins you hold. Please note that the maximum number of ZIL coins you can stake on CEX.IO now is 478,202 as you can observe in the screenshot above.

First, select ZIL from the dropdown menu and then enter how many coins you hold. Please note that the maximum number of ZIL coins you can stake on CEX.IO now is 478,202 as you can observe in the screenshot above.

After you enter the number of ZIL coins you hold, you will see on that table your estimated

  • Daily-earnings
  • Monthly earnings
  • Yearly earnings

The Zilliqa staking calculator automatically calculates the estimated earnings for these three different periods.

On CEX.IO, you are allowed to give limit orders for your staked coins. As long as the orders are pending and not executed, those coins sitting in the orders will be included in the staking rewards. Only after the orders execute, those coins will be deducted from the staking rewards.

So if you stake Zilliqa for only a portion of the staking period and sell it before maturity, you will still earn the proportional staking rewards for the days you have held onto your coins.


Why are earnings expressed as an “estimated” annual yield?

You can track your Solana staking rewards by again going to the Staking tab on the CEX.IO Earn page. On the list of stake-able currencies on the next page, you will see all your available cryptocurrency balances and staking earnings, like the sample Solana balance, shares, and earning information.

These also constitute the reason that the estimated annual yield sometimes differs from month to month.

How to Unstake ZIL

As the staking process on CEX.IO is conducted automatically, there is also no separate function to “unstake” your coins. Staking for your coins ends automatically when you either sell them on the CEX.IO exchange or withdraw them to another exchange or wallet.

This is an industry-first practice adopted by CEX.IO. Almost all other cryptocurrency exchanges enforce lockup periods for their staking customers. When there is a lock period, users cannot withdraw or trade their staked coins until the maturity date.

As there is no lockup period on CEX.IO, you can withdraw or sell your staked coins at any time. This feature allows Zilliqa investors to stake and trade their Zil coins simultaneously. A detailed explanation of how staking works on CEX.IO can be found in this blog post.
