This guide will show you how to natively stake your SOL.

There is a temporary Solana network fee of 0.002 SOL to open each SOL staking account. Once you withdraw and close your stake account, you are refunded back the fee.

Staking Notes:


You’re all set.

Remember, delegated SOL is not immediately effective. Depending on network activity, there may be a 2-3 day delay before your delegated SOL is earning rewards.
