Dapp Staking Now Offered on the Astar Network…
Dapp staking on the Astar Network is crucial for the growth of their ecosystem. Therefore, it’s important to provide incentives for developers. This is exactly what Astar does as explained below.
This is also the reason why investors are gaining interest in these tokens. If you’re a developer, take a look at the details on how to get started.
#Build2Earn: Benefits of dApp Staking and How to dApp Stake on Astar
Astar Network has announced the launch of dApp staking on Astar!
As mentioned in the previous article, for great dApps to be built, developers need to build them. For developers to build great dApps, they need financial incentives. That’s where dApp staking comes in.
On the Astar and Shiden Network, dApp staking is how developers who build dApps can get compensated. By having a basic income, developers can keep building and improving their dApps.
At its core, dApp staking is similar to staking on validators, but in this new paradigm, dApp stakers — also known as nominators–can nominate their Astar/Shiden tokens on dApps they want to support.
If you have not read part 1, it’s a good idea to start here.
This is part 3 of the article series on dApp staking, and this article, goes over the benefits of dApp staking and provide instructions on how developers can begin staking on Astar dApps today!
Benefits of dApp Staking
There are three primary benefits to staking Astar/Shiden tokens on dApps
Web3 Developers Can Earn an Income
The first is that it enables developers to earn a basic income from the rewards that are generated from the staked tokens. By having an income, developers can support themselves as they improve their dApps and this, in turn, attracts more smart contract developers to the ecosystem.
Nominators Can Earn Staking Rewards
The second benefit is that dApp stakers–also called nominators–are able to also earn staking rewards and earn high APIs for their staked tokens while supporting Astar dApps. Having nominators staking on dApps gives more stability to the ecosystem.
Less Tokens Circulating Means Higher Price
The third benefit is that the more tokens are staked, the fewer tokens are in circulation, which puts upward pressure on the token price since there is less supply. For those who are looking to invest in Astar, this is undoubtedly an important factor.
Ultimately, our dApp staking #Build2Earn campaign will benefit dApp users, nominators (i.e. dApp stakers), and dApp developers. DApp staking is a crucial component for Astar Network to be successful.
