Terra is a decentralized Proof of Stake (PoS) blockchain protocol. It uses a basket of fiat-pegged stablecoins which are algorithmically stabilized by its native crypto asset, LUNA. Terra is aimed at the mass adoption of cryptocurrencies. To accomplish this ambitious goal, Terraform Labs, the company behind Terra, is developing an entire ecosystem of financial platforms. To learn more about Terra, please, read our Terra Ecosystem Overview: A Guide for Newcomers.
LUNA is the native staking token of the Terra protocol and foundational asset for the entire ecosystem. It has two core functions which are ensuring the price stability of Terra stablecoins and providing incentives for the platform’s validators. Since LUNA is the stability mechanism, LUNA delegators are entitled to earn rewards for providing network security.
LUNA staking is a way to secure the network and earn rewards. The Terra protocol runs on a Proof of Stake (PoS) blockchain, where miners (validators) need to stake a native cryptocurrency LUNA to mine Terra transactions. Delegation mechanics allow anyone who wants to support the network and earn staking rewards to delegate to the chosen validator.
There is no minimum requirement to stake LUNA for delegators.
There is no bonding period.
When you decide to undelegate your LUNA tokens, there is a 21 day unbonding period during which neither rewards accrue nor your LUNA tokens can be freely traded.
The size of your rewards is determined by the size of your stake. They also increase as the transaction volume in the network grows, since part of the staking rewards come from transaction fees.
You will receive ~8% annually minus validator fee, which is calculated as a percentage of the block reward. Terra rewards consist of a mixture of LUNA and a variety of stablecoins. You will also get free portions of ANC, MIR, VKR and airdrops from future protocols.
Right after your delegation is complete, you will get payouts every block [~7sec]. You can check your rewards on the “Staking” tab in the Terra Station. All rewards become available after their withdrawal, you can do this at any time by clicking the “Withdraw rewards” button on your validator's page. If you delegate more to the validator you have already delegated to or choose to undelegate, your rewards will get automatically withdrawn. This won’t show up in your transaction history, but you can see your rewards reflected in your balance.
Remember to keep some funds in your account when delegating because you will have to pay a small fee to withdraw rewards.
You can buy LUNA on a number of popular exchanges, including the world’s top exchange in terms of trading volume Binance. Connect your credit/debit card and buy LUNA for EUR, AUD or GBP. If these fiats are not suitable for you, you will first need to convert your fiat to one of the cryptocurrencies available in trading pairs LUNA/BTC, LUNA/USDT, LUNA/BUSD, LUNA/ETH, etc. Once it is done, go to Binance Spot Trading, select the corresponding trading pair and place a buy order. Here you can check a full list of exchanges where you can buy LUNA.
You can store LUNA in the Terra Station, Terra’s native wallet. However, using hardware wallets such as Ledger Nano S or Ledger Nano X is the most secure method to store crypto. They support cold storage of cryptocurrencies on physical devices, meaning that the wallet only connects to the Internet when you need to broadcast a transaction to the network. Thus, it is impossible for online threats to access your holdings.
LUNA stakers are eligible for free ANC and MIR rewards. To claim your rewards, download the Terra Station Chrome extension and then go to Anchor protocol and Mirror protocol websites. In the right corner of the screen, you will see the “Connect” button. Click on it and connect your Terra Station Chrome wallet. If you are eligible for airdrops, you will see an air balloon picture with the “Claim” button on the right side of the page. Click on it to claim your ANC and MIR. Remember that you must have some UST to pay transaction fees, otherwise you will not be able to claim airdrops.
Yes, it is possible to claim all your Terra ecosystem airdrops on TerraDrops.io. Please keep in mind that only 15 airdrops can be claimed with one transaction, due to gas limits.
Anchor Protocol is a savings protocol based on the Terra blockchain that provides its users with low-volatile yields up to 20% APY. To learn more about the platform, read our article Anchor Protocol: A Savings Protocol Offering Up To 20% APY and check out A Step-By-Step Guide and Yield Farming Strategies.
Yes, you have full control of your tokens and validators cannot use them in any way. Delegation doesn’t mean that you actually send your LUNA to another address. Your tokens just get bonded by the network and cannot be used for any other purpose, except staking that you will be getting rewards for.
There is a risk of loss of funds if a validator misbehaves. In this case, its stake will be penalized, hurting both the validator and those who stake with it. For example, the slash for double signing will be at 5%, and if the validator experiences significant downtime or does not participate in the oracle process, the slash will be at 0.01%. Therefore, it is crucial to choose the validator with a good reputation like Everstake.
Yes, you can easily redelegate without having to wait a 21 day unbonding period. Choose a new validator on the “Staking” tab and click the “Redelegate” button on its page. In the “From” tab choose the validator you would like to redelegate from.
No, the math for your rewards will be the same. Indeed, validators with more mining power are proposed to mine blocks more frequently, but then they have to distribute rewards to a larger number of delegators. Thus, you will get the same amount of rewards at the end.
