Provisioners earn 12% APR staking DUSK

We’re opening up staking accessibility even further with the launch of Provisioner staking and the addition of new Block Generator positions! With Provisioner staking requiring a minimum stake amount of only 10K Dusk, we’re opening the door to hundreds of new stakers from the Dusk Community. The announcement of Block Generator staking caused an explosive number of pre-registrations, and Provisioner staking proved no different. Starting today, Provisioners will join the 300 Block Generators already running nodes on the network. In addition, 50 more Block Generator positions are now ready to be filled!

We cannot overstate how humbled we are by the community response to our staking campaigns. Together, we’re taking the possibilities of Dusk Network to the next level.
