  • Estimated rewards rate: Depends on many factors, no definite number until protocol is live - rewards rates vary - visit https://www.stakingrewards.com/cryptoassets* for current estimated reward rates

  • Estimated reward payout: Reward payouts are distributed to each validator's staking pool every epoch (24 hours) and only reaches the staker after unstaking. 

  • Time to first reward: Rewards will be received when the staker unstakes. A staker needs to stake for the entirety of an epoch in order to receive rewards for that epoch when unstaking/withdrawing. 

  • Rewards may not settle in a specified account for an additional duration depending on network conditions and batching of rewards.

  • Delegator reward compound: SUI uses a staking pool approach inspired by liquidity pools. Rewards are added to the pool and auto-compounded through the appreciation of pool tokens. Rewards are auto-compounded and also locked up like the principal.
