We are very excited to announce that Imperator.co is a validator on the Stride network!

This article aims to introduce Stride, explain how to claim the airdrop and help you stake your $STRD tokens with a validator.

📌 What is Stride?

Stride is a liquid staking protocol that enables users to earn both staking and DeFi yields across IBC chains. The protocol unlocks liquidity and offers to users the ability to stake their tokens on the Stride chain, mint stTokens (synthetic asset of a staked token) and use those liquid tokens anywhere in DeFi.

Stride’s vision is to provide liquid staking for all chains in the Cosmos ecosystem.


🪂 How to claim your $STRD airdrop?

To claim the STRD airdrop, you have to go on this link: app.stride.zone/airdrop

And connect your wallet to see how many STRD you will get.

Once your wallet connected, you will see how many STRD you can claim. To claim 100% of your airdrop, there are three actions to do:
- You can claim a first part which is a free claim
- You can claim the second part if you stake some STRD with a validator
- You can claim a third part if you liquid stake using Stride (for example, deposit some ATOM on Stride to get stATOM).

Once all done, you’ll get 100% of your airdrop.

💰 What does staking mean?

Staking is the process of locking up a digital asset to provide economic security for a public blockchain. You have the superpower to contribute to the network’s security and it grants you the right to vote on proposals and make decisions on the future of the blockchain.

When the staking transaction is complete, rewards will start to be generated immediately. At any time, stakers can send a transaction to claim their accumulated rewards.

Staking rewards are generated and distributed to staked holders in two ways:

1. Through transaction fees collected by the network and distributed to stakers.

2. Through the inflation rate, the total supply is inflated to reward stakers.

⚠️ Holders that do not stake do not receive rewards, meaning their capital gets diluted over time.

Staking is not risk-free. If a validator has downtime or underperforms, a percentage of tokens delegated to them may be forfeited. To mitigate these risks, it is recommended that holders delegate to multiple validators.

📚 How to stake $STRD?

Once you have some STRD from your airdrop or some you bought on Osmosis, you can now start staking your tokens with a validator.

You can easily stake your STRD using the Keplr Dashboard.

On the Dashboard, you can see all the different validators. Select the validator you want to stake with. If you are looking for trustworthy validator and if you appreciate our work to help the community, you can stake with Imperator.co wich is our validator.
