How to Stake SEI with Leap Wallet

This is a quick and easy guide on staking SEI with Stakin, via Leap Wallet

Sei is the first Layer-1 blockchain network fully optimized and adapted for decentralized trading, DEXs, and DeFi.

Leap Wallet is a Web3 interchain wallet that lets users manage their assets, easily perform in-wallet staking, IBC swaps and transfers, participate in governance, manage their NFT collections, claim airdrops and more. Leap Wallet currently supports 50+ Cosmos SDK chains.

Step 1 - Configure your Leap wallet account

(Note: If you already have a Leap wallet account, you can ignore this and proceed to the next section).

Head to leapwallet.io/download and download your preferred Leap Wallet browser extension.

💡
Are you SEI institutional staker? You might be interested in our customized enterprise packages for institutional stakers. Reach out to us via our SEI staking page.

After downloading the extension, you will be presented with the following screen, which invites you to set up your Leap Wallet account. Click “Create new wallet.”

The wallet app will generate a fresh keyphrase for you.

Copy the suggested keyphrase by clicking  “Copy to Clipboard” and then Paste it locally on your computer, or ideally, write it down on paper (avoid pasting the keyphrase and saving it in an online document, for security reasons).

Next, click “I have saved it somewhere safe.”

The next window will prompt you to verify that you saved your keyphrase by asking you to type down random words from the keyphrase. After you are done, click “Confirm”.

Step 2 - Fund your wallet 

First, ensure you are connected to the right network, in this case, Sei. Click on the button on the top right, as shown below:

The next window will offer you several available options. Type ‘sei’ in the search box and then select Sei.

That’s it - Your Leap wallet is now connected to Sei blockchain. 

Next, copy your Sei wallet address and paste it into the appropriate centralized or decentralized exchange account from which you intend to purchase and transfer your Sei tokens.

Step 3 - Stake your SEI tokens 

Make sure you are still located on Leap Wallet's dashboard page. Then click on the “Stake” button as shown below:

Next, click on the “Stake” tab:

Select Stakin as a validator, by typing in “stakin” in the search validator textbox, as shown below:

Specify the amount of SEI you wish to stake, then click the “Review” button:

Make sure that details such as the desired staking amount are correct.

Finally, complete the staking process by clicking on the “Stake SEI” button:

Congratulations - You’ve staked your SEI tokens with Stakin, via Leap Wallet.

If you wish to unstake your SEI tokens, ensure you are located on the main dashboard screen. Then click on the “Stake” button as in the preview above, select your stake, and click the “Unstake” button.

Please remember that on Sei blockchain unstaking takes 20 days, which means your tokens will be liquid after 20 days.
