Dfinity FAQs

How can I stake my ICP?


Staking in Dfinity refers to locking up your ICP into 'neurons', which allow you to vote within the NNS (Network Nervous System). As a result, you will be able to vote on things like Protocol updates, adding new DCs etc. By locking up ICP into neurons and actively participating in governance (i.e. voting), you can earn rewards.
