This section outlines the steps you need to do to become a staker on The OAN. In the PoS subsystem of Unity, any coin holder of a system can become a staker and produce PoS blocks. We summarize the staker personas into 3 categories, each having their own dedicated guide:

  • Public Pool: a pool that is open for delegation by any coin holder
  • Private Pool (guide in progress): a pool that is available for delegation by only a select number of participants that can be configured
  • Solo Staker: a staker that does not accept delegation

If this is your first time staking on The OAN, we suggest you start with running on The Amity Testnet. You will see specific call-outs throughout the guides that you can follow to get set up on Amity.
