So… you’re interested in staking Cosmos (ATOM) but don’t know where/how to start. Well, this guide will help you start staking in no time.

StakeSeeker is built and managed by BTCS Inc., a U.S. publicly traded company (Nasdaq:BTCS). BTCS has 9 years of experience in the crypto industry and is in compliance with all US regulations, giving you peace of mind knowing that staking with us carries low risk.

We’re excited to provide Non-Custodial staking, meaning you always keep your private keys when delegating and staking with us.

For purposes of these instructions, we’ve referenced “Cosmos (ATOM)” as the token being staked. These instructions are intended to be applicable to all other Cosmos ecosystem based blockchain networks supported by the Keplr wallet that include:

· Cosmos (ATOM)

· Kava (KAVA)

· Akash (AKT)

· And many more

Let’s get started:

1. Setting up Keplr Wallet

In order to stake with StakeSeeker, you must have your own crypto wallet. This will allow you to stake your crypto without giving a third party control over your assets.

The Keplr wallet is a very popular offline wallet with over 700,000 users.

First, you need to install the Keplr Wallet browser extension:

You can install it for your browser using the following the Official Keplr Wallet link.

Once you have installed the Keplr wallet for your browser, you will have to create a wallet.

Keplr will guide you on how to create a wallet/set up your recovery phrase

2. Funding your wallet

Once you have accessed your Keplr wallet, you now need to fund it with Cosmos (ATOM)

You can fund your wallet in a variety of ways such as by transferring ATOM from an exchange or from another wallet.

Copy your wallet address or you can scan the QR code to transfer ATOM to your Keplr Wallet.
