Staking is an art of mining through digital wallets. Through staking, you can earn additional Electra coins if you store them in your Electra wallet and configure the staking option. For detailed information, see our Staking guide

The staking reward is approximately 50% annually(10% after our fork). There is no fixed reward per block; rather, rewards are proportional to the block size. Every time a new block is found, your wallet selects an input (a group of coins that have been added to the wallet simultaneously) and calculates the full reward for this block. For detailed information, see our Staking guide

Electra is a truly decentralized coin at its core. Anyone who contributes to Electra Project is an owner / team member. We welcome everyone to Electra community, and our vision for this currency extends far beyond trading it exclusively on exchanges. We are working towards the widespread adoption of Electra as an online payment method, and are in the process of creating simple web/ API integrations to facilitate this. A digital currency, backed by its community, will always have a better future.
