Stake Early on Massa: Maximizing Rewards

Massa Labs
2 min readJan 22, 2024

As Massa’s mainnet has successfully launched on January 15th, now is the perfect time to dive into our staking opportunities. The prime time for staking is now — staking early not only secures the network but also maximizes your potential gains. Early stakers have the potential to earn significantly higher rewards! And given that a bridge and public listing are soon to come, staking can be a strong option for your tokens.

Note: As we progress, remember that OTC trading of Massa coins carries significant risks due to the absence of a trusted escrow system. We strongly advise holding off on such trades and focusing on staking as a secure and rewarding use of your tokens.

Understanding Staking in Massa

In Massa, staking goes hand-in-hand with running a node. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Stakers Are Node Runners: Unlike on other chains, there’s no delegation on Massa, so to stake, you have to run a node. (You don’t need to produce blocks to run a node, but producing blocks is where the rewards lie.)
  • On Massa, the minimal number of coins required to engage in staking is 100 MAS, equivalent to one “roll” of staking rights. With a total initial supply of 1B MAS, the potential exists for up to 10 million individuals to participate in staking.
  • Who Can Now Stake: Many in the community, including ambassadors, testnet node runners, and questers holding more than 100 coins, are already positioned to stake. This wide eligibility means a significant portion of our community can immediately start benefiting from the staking rewards.

The Role of Rolls

Rolls, the unit of staking rights in Massa, can be purchased with Massa coins. The number of rolls you hold directly influences your likelihood of being selected to create blocks across all threads. Remember, the more rolls you possess, the greater your chances of being chosen.

Starting Your Staking Journey

Once you hold at least 100 Massa, you’re ready to buy rolls and start staking. For a step-by-step guide on staking and setting up your node, visit Massa Staking Guide.

By participating in Massa’s staking process, you’re not just a bystander; you’re an active contributor to a revolutionary blockchain platform. Whether you’re a seasoned node runner or a new enthusiast with 100 MAS, staking on Massa offers you a chance to be part of something extraordinary.

Check your node’s status, ensure everything is running smoothly, and welcome to the Massa adventure!
