Stake BLD tokens

In this step-by-step guide, we will explain to you how to stake your BLD token by using Keplr wallet. Let’s get started!


Staking your BLD tokens with Keplr wallet

Installing Keplr to Activate a Wallet

Using a browser such as Google Chrome or Brave

  1. Visit the Chrome Web Store to Add to Chrome

  2. Add “Keplr” window will appear. Here's when you choose to Add Extension.

  3. When the download completes, you can begin interacting with your browser extension by clicking on it at the top right corner of your browser

  4. You'll now launch the Keplr wallet extension and will see the following 3 options

    1. Create a new account via seed/mnemonic phrase

    2. Import your account from a compatible non-custodial wallet

    3. Connect using a hardware wallet

Creating a new wallet

How to create a new Account via Recovery Phrase

  1. If you are setting up Keplr for the first time: In the initial pop-up window, choose Create new recovery phrase.

  2. Choose to have a recovery phrase of 24 words, then take care to save them. The safest way is to write the words on paper and store them in a secure place. Avoid taking screenshots of the words or copying them into your computer/phone notes.

  3. To confirm the creation of the new account, all you have to do is key in the words in the right order in which they appear in your recovery phrase, enter a name for your account, and set your password. Choose carefully, if possible, prefer a password you’re not using in any other application, and then click Next. If you have used Keplr before, this step will be skipped as you have already set your name and password when creating/importing your first account.
