How do I stake with MetaMask Staking?

Note:

MetaMask Staking is currently only supported on Ethereum mainnet.

Staking with MetaMask is a fairly straightforward process. However, there are two options to choose from:

  • If you want to stake less than 32 ETH, continue on to the instructions below, for pooled staking.
  • If you have 32 ETH or more and you're interested in having your own validator(s), check out our validator staking guide, here.

Follow the steps below to get started and receive rewards:

  1. Head on to MetaMask Portfolio and click on 'Stake'. You can select which token you want to stake: ETH or MATIC (MATIC staking is currently available only to users outside the United States).
