How to Natively Stake SOL (Mobile)

This guide will show you how to natively stake from a funded Solflare wallet. There are two different ways you can stake SOL – liquid staking, and natively staking. Natively refers to traditional staking. 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.

Step 1

  • Open your wallet, go to the Staking tab on the portfolio screen and click Stake.
  • This is where you can access any stake accounts you’ve set up.

This guide delegates your SOL to a validator. The validator then adds your stake to its pool of SOL and this process can take up to 3 epochs which translates to roughly 6 days. Your rewards won’t start accruing until the moment your SOL is added to a validator’s stake pool.

Step 2

  • Choose how much SOL you would like to delegate and click Next.
  • Make sure you set up an amount higher than 0.01 SOL as currently, that is the limitation set by the Solana network.

  • You will be displayed the breakdown of the Annual return, Total stake, and the validator’s current Performance.
  • Click Stake to continue.

Step 3

  • Once you’re all set, Swipe to Confirm the transaction.

Congratulations! You’re all set.

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

You’re still able to undelegate during this timeframe.
