How to Stake STMX
First, go to the website: stormx.io and click on the button that says “Staking” in the top header navigation bar. You will be directed to the following page.
Click on “Let’s go!” and you will complete a few basic steps before you can stake.
Click on “Download” and you will be prompted to download the StormX Chrome Extension.
Click on the button “Add to Chrome” to download the StormX Chrome Extension. This is possible with Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, and the Brave Browser.
Once you installed the Extension, you can set up your account by clicking the “login or signup” button.
Fill in your e-mail address, and you’ll receive a verification code on your email that you need to paste into the blank space (when a step is completed you will see a checkmark on the left side in the red square).
Connect a Member Wallet
You can now add your ERC20 wallet, we strongly advise you to use MetaMask.
If you click the “Connect a Member Wallet” button, you will see a pop-out where you have the option to download, connect, and verify the MetaMask wallet. You can also import your Ledger to MetaMask to stake as well.
If you already have STMX on the connected wallet, you don’t need to do anything. If you don’t have any, add STMX to the connected wallet through one of the supported markets such as Binance, Upbit, Bittrex, or Voyager.
Once this step is done, you will be navigated to the staking page, as shown below. Remember you can always earn STMX by shopping in the app too ?
When you look at the image above, you will see the staking dashboard. The 3 square boxes on the top show general information about the number of reward members, the total value locked, and the estimated staking yield.
In the larger center box, the left column shows your total earned staking, the 2nd one shows your weekly earning and the 3rd shows the reward date (the date you will get your new weekly earnings), the fourth stat shows the total staked amount of STMX. In the image below you see that we staked 0 from a total of 1,248.
To stake your STMX, you need to add the amount of STMX that you want to stake (in the image above you see 248) and press “Stake” afterward.
