Is there any minimum stake requirement or term for CRO Staking?

No there is no minimum stake requirement or minimum term

What is the APY for staking with Argo?

APY by staking with Argo will be similar to staking with a normal crypto.org validator: 10-12% APY, less 10% protocol commissions.

However, we provide the benefit of having a liquid staking token that can be used in other dApps across the Cronos ecosystem to earn even more APY.

What is bCRO?

bCRO is a liquid, tokenized representation of the staker’s staked CRO. bCRO enables stakers to gain liquidity over their staked CRO and enables the locked value of the staked CRO to be utilized across decentralized finance applications across Cronos.

How to Unstake CRO?

You may refer to the guide we have written here:

Unstaking CRO on Argo

How long does it take to stake and unstake CRO?

Staking of CRO is an instant process. However, unstaking comes with 2 methods

  • Swapping bCRO for CRO on a DEX

  • Unstaking via Croasis

The first method is instant, but you'll be paying LP fees as well as slippage. The second method charges a small fee and takes 28 days.

How do I claim my staking rewards?

Staking rewards are accrued directly into the value of bCRO, which can be observed by the increase in bCRO:CRO exchange rate.

You can read more about it here:

bCRO Token

Why does 1 bCRO = 1 CRO?

Argo can only mint bCRO when you stake CRO with us, and burn bCRO only when you unstake CRO. As a result, any bCRO in circulation is always backed minimally by 1 CRO, in addition to the staking rewards accrued to the contract over time.

At the time of writing, Argo charges 3 types of fees

  • Fees from utilising the delayed unstaking function

  • Validator rewards commissions

  • Vault fees
