Frequently Asked Questions

With Kiln the minimum amount to stake is 32 ETH for now. Stay tuned, as there will soon be no more minimum.

With Lido, Ledger users can participate in the network with any amount of ETH. For each Ether you stake with our partner Lido, you’ll receive an stETH token in exchange. You can exchange, send or sell these stETH, making Ethereum staking more liquid.

With Kiln staking, rewards are earned at each block proposed by the validator.

With Lido, you receive staking rewards within 24 hours of your deposit being made, without waiting for validator activation. The reward will be in the form of stETH tokens that will be added to your stETH balance.

With Kiln staking, ETH rewards are sent to the staking smart contract. They can then be withdrawn from the same Ethereum address you are using to run your validator.

Lido applies a 10% fee on staking rewards, split between node operators, the DAO and an insurance fund. This fee can be changed by the DAO pending a successful vote.

Native Ethereum staking offered by Kiln rely on smart contracts to operate staking. Even if these smart contracts have been audited they can contain bugs.

There are different potential risks when staking ETH using Lido. Lido could contain a smart contract vulnerability or bug. The Lido code is open-sourced, audited and covered by an extensive bug bounty program to minimise this risk.

Native ETH rewards earned through Kiln native staking will be unlocked in a future Ethereum upgrade called “Shanghai” scheduled in 2023. Ledger and Kiln are independent from this protocol upgrade. Please note that these timelines are not commitments and are not in the control of Kiln.

It’s not currently possible to unstake ETH that have been staked using Lido. However, you currently have the option to swap your stETh balance back for regular ETH. This effectively “unstake” your ETH. You can swap stETH for regular ETH using the Paraswap app in Ledger Live.
