Delegate and Redelegate NLS

Delegate to Receive NLS Rewards While Strengthening the Security of the Nolus Chain

Delegate

Delegating NLS tokens is the process by which users earn rewards while contributing to the security of the Nolus network. This is achieved through delegation to a validator. Validators play a crucial role in maintaining the network's integrity. In addition to receiving staking rewards, NLS token delegators gain the option to participate in the governance process, shaping the Protocol's future development.
 

To delegate NLS tokens, choose one of the following interfaces:

Nolus dApp

  1. Visit the Nolus dApp.
  2. Click on "Earn" in the left sidebar.
  3. Next to NLS, click “Delegate/Withdraw”.
  4. In the pop-up window, input the amount you wish to delegate and click on “Delegate”.
  5. View the transaction details and click on “Confirm”.
  6. A pop-up to confirm the transaction will appear in your connected wallet.
 
 

Explorer

  1. Visit the Nolus blockchain explorer.
  2. To ensure that the explorer runs smoothly, connect to the Nolus Endpoint as seen below:
  3. Click on "Staking" in the left sidebar.

Important Considerations

When selecting a validator, perform due diligence by considering their bonded amount, commission rate, and uptime. In case of inactivity or malicious behavior, tokens delegated to a validator, including self-delegated ones, might be slashed. 

Undelegating NLS tokens from a validator takes 21 days, however, transferring delegation to a different validator is instant. Bear in mind that subsequent redelegation from the same wallet is not possible for the next 21 days.
