Delegate MINA using Auro

Important notice: Although Auro wallet is an open-source project, it is still undergoing some developments and audits. The open-source version is yet to be released. Please check this space for the update on audits.

Update1: Auro wallet has been successfully audited and open-sourced. Verify the audit here.

Delegating your MINA tokens will not only improve the decentralization, scalability, and security of the Mina Protocol but will also earn you extra MINA as a reward.

The inflation rate of MINA during the first year is very high. Nealy 24% if you hold unlocked tokens. So, if you have participated in the CoinList sale or you have unlocked MINA, you are eligible to get 24% APY on your MINA.

So, don’t lose this opportunity.

Stake your MINA

On the transaction page, select “Fast” in the Fee section, so that your delegate transaction will get almost instant confirmation.

Congratulations!! You have successfully delegated your MINA! :)

Rewards distribution

Mina protocol does not automatically pay out rewards to delegators, block producers will receive the block rewards+fees and it is the responsibility of the block producer to send the rewards to the delegator.

We will manually payout rewards to delegators. You’ll receive your rewards at the start of a new epoch. This means, at the start of the 2nd epoch, you’ll receive the rewards of the 1st epoch and likewise. And rewards will be sent twice a month because each epoch will last at least 14 days. Feel free to contact me if you need any further clarifications.
