Bluzelle is a decentralized data layer for dApps to manage data securely, censorship-resistant, and highly scalable. Think of Bluzelle as the AirBnB of databases allowing dApps/protocols to host on a fail-safe and decentralized server, removing any single access point for failure. Bluzelle is powered by Cosmos and its BFT technology Tendermint, making it compatible with other EVM blockchains and other chains supported via Cosmos’ IBC bridge.
Here's a step-by-step guide to staking BLZ on Frontier:
First, you need to switch to the Bluezelle chain in your Frontier Wallet that has native support for staking BLZ.
You can do this by tapping on the top left dropdown list above your wallet address and selecting the Bluezelle chain.
Once the wallet is selected, select the ‘Stake’ option on the top of your home screen.
This will open the ongoing staking opportunities on the chain with the corresponding APR rewards. Select BLZ to proceed.
You will now open the ‘Validators’ screen, where you can browse the various validators and their uptime, commission %, number of tokens delegated, and rewards. Choose the validator you wish to use to proceed.
On the next screen, you can enter the number of BLZ tokens you wish to stake. If you wish to stake all your tokens, tap on ‘Set max.’
Once you enter the number of BLZ, Frontier will calculate the projected gains daily, monthly, and yearly. This is estimated based on the present APR and BLZ tokens you stake.
Read any notes associated with the staking cooldown period. Once you are ready, select ‘Review’ to proceed.
In the ‘Review transaction’ screen, you will see a summary of the BLZ you have chosen, its present market value, and your chosen validator.
Select ‘Stake’ after reviewing all the details.
You will be prompted to enter your Frontier passcode to verify the staking request.
Your request will be submitted to the blockchain, and you will be notified once it is completed.
Once complete, you will be able to see the staked tokens in your positions tab, or at the ‘Staked’ tab under ‘Stake’ on your wallet home screen.
To unstake, just follow these steps:
Open the tokens you have staked by either selecting the ‘Positions’ tab (if available) in your wallet or selecting ‘Stake’ on your wallet home screen, and then selecting the ‘Staked’ tab.
Select the tokens you wish to unstake tokens from the list.
This will open a summary of your staking status. Including APY, unclaimed rewards, fees, and other details. Below, you will see the number of staked tokens with their present market value and the total rewards you have earned.
To unstake your tokens, you can select the ‘Unstake’ option on this screen.
You will be prompted to enter the ‘Unstake qty’ and the corresponding balance of tokens you have staked. Once quantity is entered, you can select ‘Unstake’ below to continue.
You might be prompted with a reminder at this point. If you are sure, select ‘Yes, Unstake’ or cancel to return to the previous screen.
If you proceed with unstaking, you will land on the final ‘Review transaction’ screen. Here, you will see a summary of the wallet, the tokens you are unstaking with their present market value, the validator, and any fees.
You may choose to make changes to the gas fees at your own risk and then proceed by selecting ‘Unstake’ below.
You will be prompted for your Frontier passcode at this stage. Once entered, your unstake request will be submitted to the blockchain.
On completion, the unstaked tokens will appear in your wallet home screen under your ‘Tokens’ tab.
