*The historical rewards rate is not indicative of future rewards, as the network conditions that affect rewards payouts are constantly in flux.

How It Works

Polkadot is based on Nominated Proof of Stake (NPoS) technology. Just tell Polkadot how much DOT you want to stake and choose up to 16 validators. Polkadot takes care of the rest, automatically.
