NEET DApp Staking

What is dApp Staking?

dApp staking serves as a crucial incentive mechanism for developers to build exceptional decentralized applications (dApps). Operating similarly to validator staking, dApp stakers, or nominators, can stake their Astar tokens on specific dApps they wish to support.

At every block, a portion of rewards is allocated to dApp staking, dividing it between developers and nominators. This creates a strong incentive for developers to build on Astar and for nominators to support them through dApp staking.

Unlike traditional methods where developers rely on grant programs or fundraising, dApp staking offers developers a basic income as long as their dApp is nominated. As a dApp gains popularity and attracts more nominators, developers receive a larger share of the block reward.
