What is Solana?

Later on, Anatoly teamed up with Greg Fitzgerald to build a single blockchain network that uses POH.

How to stake your Solana to stake2earn?

1. Access your Solflare Account

Carefully read the info-text, then choose “Using Keystore File” and click “Next”.

Note to yourself! Always make sure that you choose a very strong password that you share with no one. For safekeeping, never store your password on your computer.

In addition to your Keystore file, you can save another file called “Raw Private Key”. You can use the “Raw Private Key” file to manage the same account with the Command-Line-Interface (CLI) in case you lose your password or Keystore file. Don’t forget to check the box next to “Get a Raw Private Key”, then, click “Next”.

Upload your Keystore file to ensure you have access to it. Hit “Finish” to finalize the process.

You are now logged and you can see the main menu of Solflare in which you find key information about your Wallet Account such as your wallet account address, your balance, or your most recent transactions.

You can now fund your Wallet to perform actions such as staking.

2. Creating a Stake Account

In order to create the Stake Account, please click on Staking from the top bar, click on “Create Account”. Fill in the amount you want to transfer from your Wallet Account to your Stake Account in the pop-up menu and click on “Next”. Now, you’ll have to input once more your password and hit “Submit”.

This process needs to be repeated for every Stake Account you want to create.

You are now officially a delegator on Solana blockchain! Congrats!

You will start earning rewards once the Warmup Period has concluded (approximative 2–3 days). Until that moment, you will see your Stake Account under the status “activating”.
