Liquid Staking

If you are already active in Cosmos and understand Staking on principle, you'll be successful using our app right away! Follow the guidance and relevant links below to get going.

With Stride, you are now able to stake your tokens (ATOM, OSMO, JUNO, or STARS) in exchange for stTOKENs which you can deploy around the Cosmos ecosystem. In order to liquid stake your tokens, visit stride.zone and select “Start liquid staking” or use the Stride App link https://app.stride.zone.

To follow along with a video tutorial, see this step-by-step screenshare tutorial here. Otherwise, keep reading!

For this example we are staking ATOM tokens stored in a Keplr wallet.

If you don’t have a wallet:
