Solana Delegation Tutorial

Are you an SOL token holder and do you want to have a passive income by delegating them? Please follow up on the guide below if you are having trouble doing so.

What is Solana and Solana Staking?

Solana is a cutting-edge blockchain platform renowned for its speed, security, and scalability, making it ideal for decentralized applications (dApps) and digital currencies. What sets Solana apart is its unique combination of proof of history (PoH) and proof of stake (PoS) consensus mechanisms. This hybrid approach allows Solana to handle thousands of transactions per second efficiently and at a low cost. Staking on Solana involves locking up your SOL tokens with validators who help maintain the network by verifying transactions and securing the blockchain. In exchange for delegating your tokens, you earn rewards, typically paid out in SOL, providing a steady stream of passive income while supporting the network's health and security.

Before we get started, we need to ensure that we have a properly set up Solana wallet. If you have completed this step, feel free to skip. Otherwise let's dive in!

You will be prompted to create a password to encrypt your Keystore file, and then download the encrypted file to your computer, or more securely, to a hardware wallet. Recommended: a new file back to the site to verify the download was saved correctly.

Step 4: Deposit your SOL into this wallet

Once you set up SolFlare, make sure your account is properly funded. To fund your account, send the desired amount of SOL to your address (e.g. transfer SOL from an exchange to your wallet).

At the bottom of the page, you can set up your staking account and start delegating:

Enter the amount of SOL you want to use to fund your new stake account. This amount will be withdrawn from your wallet and transferred to the stake account(No transaction fee required for this step).

However, don’t transfer your entire wallet balance because your wallet is still used to pay any transaction fees associated with your stake account.

Input your password to finish the transaction (No transaction fee required) and click on “ Finish”. So now we have set up your staking account and deposited the fund.
