How to Stake BounceBit with Metamask Wallet

This is a quick and easy guide on staking BounceBit tokens on Stakin, with Metamask wallet.

BounceBit is a BTC restaking infrastructure that provides a foundational layer for different restaking products, secured by the regulated custody of Mainnet Digital (a premier asset management and fintech platform) and Ceffu (a secure environment for storing digital currencies for institutional entities). BounceBit supports the seamless transition of pure BTC into more agile forms such as BTCB on the BNB chain and Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC), facilitating their entry into productive activities.

MetaMask is a widely used cryptocurrency wallet that supports multiple blockchains, including Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, and multiple Layer 2 networks like Arbitrum, Polygon, etc.

Step 1 - Connect your Metamask wallet account with BounceBit

Head to https://bbscan.io/stake.

Next, click the "Connect Wallet" button and choose Metamask from the list of suggested wallets.

Finally, you will be prompted to add BounceBit to Metamask. Click “Approve.” If your Metamask is set to Ethereum by default, the next popup will prompt you to switch to BounceBit mainnet. Click “Switch network.”

You have now connected your Metamask wallet with BounceBit. 


Step 2 - Stake your BounceBit tokens 

Before you proceed with staking BounceBit BB tokens, you first need to top up your Metamask wallet account. You can do so by purchasing or swapping existing tokens with BB tokens on a centralized or a decentralized exchange of your choice.

Make sure you are still located at https://bbscan.io/stake

Select Stakin as a validator by typing “stakin” in the validator search box, as marked below.

Next, specify the amount to stake, leaving enough balance to cover transaction fees and avoiding a "not enough gas" error.

Important: Make sure the LSD toggle on the top right of the window is turned off.

Click “Stake.” 

A few moments later, a Metamask popup window will prompt you to sign the staking transaction. Click “Confirm.”

Congratulations - You have staked your BounceBit tokens and will soon start accruing rewards from the network inflation. 

The unstaking process is pretty straightforward, as the Stake and Unstake buttons are nested next to each other.
