Some exchanges offer staking services directly, but this
requires you to delegate ownership of your tokens to them.
This guide involves using your own wallet, enabling you to
maintain full ownership of your tokens.
Choose a wallet that suits your needs, create an account, and transfer your OIPL from the exchange.
In your wallet, choose the to delegate your OIPL to. Remember to spread your risk by delegating your OIPL to multiple validators in good standing.
Using your wallet, send a simple transaction (often called
“Stake” or “Delegate”) to start staking. This locks up your OIPL (i.e. you can’t transfer them) and enables the chosen validators to operate the network.
Staked OIPL can be unlocked via your wallet by sending a transaction (often called “Unstake” or “Undelegate”) and waiting 21 days.
Now that you’ve staked your OIPL like a pro, join a fast-growing
