Moonstake is pleased to announce that our users can now earn interest from staking Shiden network’s SDN token on both the Web and Mobile Wallets! Hold, send, receive, and stake SDN to receive rewards with the best user experience through one single click. In fact, Moonstake is amongst the world’s first group of validators for Shiden Network. After Cosmos, IRISnet, Ontology, Harmony, Tezos, Cardano, Qtum, Polkadot, Quras, Centrality, Orbs, IOST, and TRON, Shiden became the 14th staking coin available on Moonstake.
Moonstake started the staking business last year with the aim to create the largest staking network in Asia. Since then, we have developed the most user-friendly Web Wallet and Mobile Wallet (iOS / Android) with support for over 2000 cryptocurrencies. After a full-scale operation launched in August 2020, Moonstake’s total staking assets have grown rapidly to reach $1 Billion, allowing Moonstake to become one of the top 10 staking providers globally. Since March this year, Moonstake has also entered DeFi together with the newly launched DeFi platform, Muse.Finance, who has begun releasing its core DeFi products which are all scheduled to be integrated into Moonstake platform to enable advanced DeFi connectivity for our global users.
The Shiden Network is built using almost the same code base as Astar Network (formerly Plasm), a public blockchain originating in Japan, and connects to the Kusama Network, an experimental network that is one-tenth the scale of the Polkadot Network. Since the Kusama Relaychain does not support smart contract functionality by design, it needs a smart contract layer which is where Shiden Network comes in. On top of this, Shiden also supports various advanced blockchain applications like DeFi, NFTs and more.
In February 2021, Moonstake entered a strategic partnership with Plasm, now known as Astar Network, to expand the Polkadot ecosystem and explore further collaborative development opportunities in DeFi. As such, the integration of Shiden, Astar’s sister network, is the fundamental next step of our collaboration and an important part of our plan to penetrate the DeFi market. Our teams are working hard together to enable the “DApp Store ” feature on Moonstake Wallets for users to enjoy staking to earn with other Shiden DApps on the wallet interface, please stay tuned!

How to stake SDN on Moonstake Wallet
Here’s a simple 3-step process to stake SDN with Moonstake Wallet:
- Register your Moonstake Wallet via Web or mobile (iOS / Android)
- Select SDN from the “Wallets” screen and click the “Add Asset” button.
- Access the SDN screen to check your staking information. From the Staking tab, click the “Stake” button and enter your wallet password to complete staking.
How SDN staking works
- Hold SDN Token, 100 SDN minimum staking amount.
- Agree to lock in and stake SDN
- Currently, each DApp can have a maximum of 512 nominators.
How to get rewards of SDN staking:
The annual reward (APY) for SDN is dependent on Shiden and its DApp Store. You can claim your SDN rewards once every ERA, which is a period of time that is approximately 24 hours. The claim needs to be done within 15 days or the unclaimed rewards go to the treasury. A claim can be made by the contract owner or any staker in the DApp. One claim will be for everyone, so it doesn’t have to be you. If the DApp owner or anyone else from the staking pool press “Claim”, you will also get your ERA rewards.
How SDN unstaking works:
If token holders want to send an asset that is currently staked, they will need to unstake it first. There is no lock period for unstaking SDN.
Moonstake is proud to be amongst the world’s first group of validators and we’re looking forward to further cooperation with the team at Shiden Network to accelerate global adoption of staking and DApps.
