What is Mina and MINA Staking

Mina Protocol is a blockchain platform that achieves scalability through a lightweight, fixed blockchain size of approximately 22 KB. It uses zk-SNARKs (Zero-Knowledge Succinct Non-Interactive Argument of Knowledge) cryptography to verify transactions without storing the entire transaction history. Mina Protocol's native cryptocurrency, MINA, is used to facilitate network transactions and distribute fees between users.

MINA Staking refers to the process of participating in the Mina Protocol network by staking (locking up) your MINA tokens to perform various functions on the network, such as securing the network, validating transactions, and participating in the governance of the protocol.

a) Open your Auro wallet. You can find it on Chrome extensions. Click on "Check More Transaction History." This will conveniently direct you to Mina Explorer.

b) Within Mina Explorer, select the "Transactions" section. Here, you'll have access to a comprehensive record of all your transaction history.


Unlike most staking protocols, Mina doesn't have a specific "Unstake" or "Undelegate" command. This is because Mina never locks staked funds, allowing them to be accessed at any time.

You can do any of the following to unstake/undelegate: transfer, sell, donate, redelegate to the original account, or redelegate to another validator.

If you wish to change validators, you can first open your Auro wallet and click staking and click change.
