Stakin Guide: How To Delegate Your $STARS Stargaze via the Stargaze Platform and Keplr Wallet

Hi readers in this article we show you how to stake $STARS

Stargaze is a community-owned Interchain NFT marketplace built on the Cosmos SDK. Stargaze is a layer-one for NFTs (non-fungible tokens) for the Cosmos Ecosystem that scales and is interoperable.

Stargaze is a Proof-of-Stake blockchain, the network’s native asset is the Stargaze Token ($STARS). $STARS is used for governance, to secure the blockchain and provide a default mechanism to store and exchange value, and buy NFTs, of course.

Stargaze imagines a future with social token ownership and content, as well as profile avatars, all NFTs within the network. DAOs (Decentralized Autonomous Organizations) are in charge of curation and moderation inside the ecosystem.

You can obtain your $STARS by swapping them on Osmosis Zone, or via Airdrop.

Staking Your $STARS

To get started staking your $STARS, go to the Stargaze staking dashboard:

Please note: in order to stake on the Stargaze platform, you need to have a Keplr Wallet funded with $STARS. If you haven’t yet, follow step 1. If you already have your Keplr wallet, continue to step 3.

Step 1 - Install the wallet extension

Go to; a pop-up will appear as soon as you enter the website. Click on the pop-up; it will lead you to the Chrome extension store. Select: “add to Chrome”. Make sure you are downloading the official app.

Once you’ve added the extension, click on it.

Step 2 - Create Your Wallet

On the Keplr web page, select “Create New Account” to start setting up your account. There is also an option to Sign in with Google. In case you already have a Keplr wallet, select “Import Existing Account”.

If you’ve selected “Create New Account”, Keplr will ask if you’d like to have a Mnemonic Seed of 12 or 24 words. Remember to store your seed phrase securely offline and never share it with anyone. If you lose your seed phrase, you will lose the assets within the wallet.

Once you’ve copied your seed phrase, fill out your account name, desired password and confirm by selecting “Next”.

Fill out your seed phrase in the right order to register, then select “Register”. That’s it! You’ve now created your Keplr wallet. Copy the address and send $STARS. You’re now ready to go!

Step 3 - Get Started With Stakin

Navigate to: and on the top menu, select the most right button: “Connect”.

A pop-up will request access to your Keplr Wallet, select “Approve” to continue. Your wallet address should now show-up on the top menu next to a button that lets you disconnect.

Next, on the dashboard select “Stake” in the top menu. The staking dashboard will open with all the validators on it. Scroll down to find the validator of your choice, and on the right side select “delegate”.

An in-screen pop-up will now show you the validator of your choice and the amount that you’d like to stake with them. Now, select “Delegate”.

Keplr wallet will now ask you to confirm the delegation by checking the transaction data, and fee. It’s also possible to add a memo if you’d like. Next, select “Approve” to continue staking.

If successful you should see the “Delegated Successfully” pop-up (as on the image below).

Select “Done” and that’s it! You’ve delegated your $STARS, just need to wait for the rewards to come your way. 😉😉

If you’d like to double check, on the dashboard select “staked validators”.

You should see the amount staked, commission charged, the voting power and you’ll also be able to redelegate or undelegate from the staked validators dashboard.

You can check any transactions via:

DISCLAIMER: This is not financial advice. Staking, delegation, and cryptocurrencies involve a high degree of risk, and there is always the possibility of loss, including the failure of all staked digital assets. Additionally, delegators are at risk of slashing in case of security or liveness faults on some protocols. We advise you to do your due diligence before choosing a validator.
