How much can I make by staking on Kraken?

Use the Kraken earn calculator to find out exactly how much you could make. However, in almost every instance staking pays a better rate of interest than keeping your money in a bank savings account.

For example, if you have £1000 in a savings account paying 1% interest, over the course of the year you would earn £10. This is normally paid into your account on a monthly basis.

Crypto staking rewards are higher, more flexible, and can be paid out more frequently. For instance, if you bought £1000 worth of ETH and deposited it onto a staking platform then you may be able to earn significantly more and receive that money on a daily basis. If the ETH reward was 8%, this would be the calculation:

£1000 x 8% APY rewards = £80

£80/365 days = £0.21 per day

Or in ETH:

0.87 ETH x 8% APY rewards = 0.069 ETH

0.069/365 days = 0.00019 ETH per day

You can also choose to adjust your staking amount or withdraw your money at any time without losing out on your rewards. The trade-off is that the price of the coin is more volatile than fiat currency and the value of your holdings can fluctuate dramatically. 

Can I stake on other platforms?

Yes, lots of different brokers offer staking rewards and you can spread your money around to get the best rates. Here are some other brokers that offer staking rewards:

  • Binance. Binance offers staking rewards on 300+ cryptocurrencies.
  • Coinbase. Coinbase pays out staking rewards automatically on qualifying coins.
  • offers staking rewards on 100+ cryptocurrencies.
