What is Terra?

Terra (LUNA), also known as Terra Money, is a decentralized and open-source public blockchain protocol resulting from a community-supported separation of the original Terra Classic blockchain.

The main difference between Terra Classic and the new Terra is that Terra is not backed in any way by either Terraform Labs or Do Kwon. Instead, Terra is 100% community-owned.

LUNA is the official cryptocurrency of the Terra network, used to pay for transaction fees on the network.

What is Terra staking?

Staking is a great way for long-term crypto investors to earn passive income on their Proof-of-Stake cryptocurrency assets (such as LUNA) while taking part in securing the network.

Stakers, by delegating tokens to validators, give voting rights to these to validate transactions on the blockchain and propose new blocks. The more stake is attributed to a validator, the more it will be able to take part in the network consensus and earn rewards for its stakers.

A quick example: Suppose a blockchain network offers a 5% reward rate for a staking period of 1 year (5% APR). You decide to lock up and stake 100 tokens on the network. After a year, you can access your staked tokens and receive five additional tokens as your reward – minus eventual fees charged by the staking provider.

Staking Proof-of-Stake (PoS) cryptocurrencies such as LUNA does not require stakers to transfer their token to validators. It is a non-custodial process.

Why is Stakin a great choice for Terra (LUNA) staking?

Staking your assets on your own is operationally challenging as it requires specialist expertise to set up nodes and ensure constant uptime to maximize rewards or prevent so-called slashing: partial loss of your staked cryptocurrencies due to prolonged downtime, or inappropriate/malicious behavior by the node operator.

Stakin is an excellent choice for staking your Terra (LUNA) tokens, as we have a strong expertise and track record of reliable operations on this network. Stakin has been an active validator for Terra Classic since 2019, and has participated in the Terra rebirth event and genesis of the new Terra network. We also support 20+ Cosmos networks, reflecting our dedication to the development of the Cosmos ecosystem.
