Step 4. A new pop-up window will appear and show your 24 word seed phrase. Make sure to write down these 24 words and have a backup of this wallet saved. This will allow you to restore the wallet if needed. Ensure this file is stored in a safe location. Once you have copied and stored your seed phrase, select “Continue” at the bottom of the window.

Reward Rate Information

Delegators staking HASH receive rewards based on the transaction volume. Provenance is non-inflationary since the 100 billion HASH have been minted since genesis. Since there is no inflation adjustment, the rewards are redistributed from the fees paid for the transactions. Thus, the higher the volume of transactions, the more rewards are distributed.
Please reach out to [email protected] if you plan to stake more than 1 Million USD in HASH tokens.

Provenance FAQs
What is protocol staking?
On a Proof of Stake blockchain, staking is the act of depositing tokens in order to become a validator; that is, to participate in proposing and attesting to transaction blocks. Anyone with a minimum necessary coin balance can validate transactions and earn staking rewards on these blockchains.
What is the name of the asset being staked?
The Provenance network token, HASH, is used for staking, and participating in on-chain governance.
Where can I explore the network and create a provenance wallet?
Wallet: Provenance Wallet Block Explorer Figment provides advanced explorer features with Hubble.
How long does it take to stake and unstake?
There is a 21 day unbonding period to unstake your HASH.
When are staking rewards and transfers enabled?
Staking rewards and transfers will begin at the launch of the mainnet.
How is staking income disbursed? Is staking income liquid or automatically staked?
Staking income on Provenance is automatically disbursed every block. Figment is never in control of your rewards. Staking income is not automatically compounded, a new delegation is required.
Can I lose potential staking rewards?
Your potential rewards depend on validator performance. If a validator misses more than 99% of the last 10,000 blocks, this results in a slashing penalty of 0.01%. There is also a 5% slashing penalty for double signing.
Can my staked HASH be slashed (seized or destroyed)?
Figment insures our clients from slashing and has never had a slashing event.
What is the rate of new issuance (aka "annual inflation") for HASH? How does the token supply change?
The number of minted HASH remains constant, and no new HASH is minted as reward for work. As a result, there is no inflation for HASH.
Do I maintain custody of my HASH tokens? Who or what controls my staked HASH token?
You can self-custody your HASH tokens, ideally using the native Provenance wallet. Figment has partnerships with a number of top-in-class custodians. Please contact [email protected] for more inquiries.
