NuCypher, Threshold Threshold Staking Guide

<p>The <a href="https://www.nucypher.com/">NuCypher Network</a> has merged with the <a href="https://keep.network/">KEEP Network</a> to form the <a href="https://threshold.network/">Threshold Network</a>. We have checked the <a href="https://docs.nucypher.com/en/latest/">official instructions</a> and summarised all the steps required to stake T in this short guide.</p><p>If you have an existing NU/KEEP stake, you can withdraw it and then upgrade tokens to T and stake. However if you are subject to a vesting agreement, your unvested stake will not be immediately withdrawable, but you can still stake it in Threshold. You will find instructions in the second part of this guide.</p><h3 id="how-to-stake-t-when-you-have-liquid-tokens-nu-or-keep"><strong>How to stake T when you have liquid tokens (NU or KEEP)</strong></h3><p>1. If you have staked NU or KEEP you need to withdraw the tokens first. You can do it on <a href="https://stake.nucypher.network/manage/withdraw">NU dashboard</a> or <a href="https://dashboard.keep.network/overview">KEEP dashboard</a>. Just follow the link, connect your wallet and click the withdraw button.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2022/04/image.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1256" height="584" srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2022/04/image.png 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1000/2022/04/image.png 1000w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2022/04/image.png 1256w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>2. Upgrade your NU/KEEP tokens to T via the <a href="https://dashboard.threshold.network/upgrade.)">Threshold Network Dashboard</a>. Connect your wallet and click “upgrade token”. It will ask you to enter an amount of NU/KEEP and convert it to T.</p><div class="kg-card kg-callout-card kg-callout-card-purple"><div class="kg-callout-emoji">💡</div><div class="kg-callout-text"><em>Notice that the vending machine contract uses a static conversion ratio and remains available indefinitely, so please be safe, take your time, and confirm everything!</em></div></div><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2022/04/1.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="595" height="608"></figure><p>3. Stake your T-tokens using the <a href="https://dashboard.threshold.network/staking">Threshold Dashboard</a>. Click the stake button. You will see a pop-up with staking process details. Just fill in the check-box that you read the requirements, choose an amount of T for staking, and confirm the transaction.</p><div class="kg-card kg-callout-card kg-callout-card-purple"><div class="kg-callout-emoji">💡</div><div class="kg-callout-text"><em>The minimum stake amount is 40,001 T. The UI won't stop you if you try to stake less than 40,001 T. However, your staking tx will fail and you will have wasted the gas fee.

The last step to start getting rewards  - bond your stake with a PRE node operator address.</p><p>If you have more then 3,000,000 T you may rent a ready-to-use node from P2P. Contact us via <strong>[email protected]</strong> or telegram <strong>@ztonnis</strong>. We will prepare and send your personal node address. After that, you should <a href="https://stake.nucypher.network/manage/bond">bond this node with your stake</a>. Just connect your wallet, copy-past the received node address and click “Bond Operator”. </p><div class="kg-card kg-callout-card kg-callout-card-purple"><div class="kg-callout-emoji">💡</div><div class="kg-callout-text"><em>What does it mean to rent a node?

If you want to stake less than 3,000,000 T, it will be unprofitable for you to rent a node due to the fee. We want to keep an honest low fee for our clients and therefore set this minimum stake. However, you can still join your stake with somebody or <a href="https://docs.nucypher.com/en/latest/pre_application/running_a_node.html#running-a-node">run the node</a> by yourself (if you have the technical knowledge and a free server).</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2022/04/image-56.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="1123" srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2022/04/image-56.png 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1000/2022/04/image-56.png 1000w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1600/2022/04/image-56.png 1600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2022/04/image-56.png 2000w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>That’s all. You will receive rewards denominated in the native T tokens.

Stake your NU via <a href="https://stake.nucypher.network/manage/stake">NuCypher dashboard → stake</a>. Note that the staking balance here differs from the number in the previous step. Its UI feature, 40,001 T on the bonding page equals 12,274 NU on the staking page (1 NU = 3.259 T).</p><p>There may be a UI bug on the threshold dashboard showing migrated stakes.
