How do I claim my staking rewards?
Receiving your staking rewards is as easy as the press of a button. Most of your staking rewards are automatically claimed and deposited
Automatic Reward Claiming
Some protocols will be subject to automatic rearward claiming, such as the Graph ($GRT). Locked $GRT tokens can be staked to earn more $GRT, and you will see your overall balance increase without having to do anything. Since your earned rewards are automatically added to your total staked balance, your staking income will compound, allowing you to earn rewards on top of your rewards.
Manual Reward Claiming
Alternatively, other protocols require you to manually claim your rewards. Tokens on popular protocols like Cosmos ($ATOM), and Osmosis ($OSMO) subject stakers to manual reward claiming.
To manually claim staking rewards,
Navigate to the token profile page.
Under Staked Balance, find a box labeled Claim Rewards. If you have unclaimed rewards, the amount you have earned will be listed.
To claim, simply tap Claim twice. Voilà – your rewards will now be reflected under Available Balance.
Don't forget to re-stake these rewards to maximize your returns. Since claiming rewards and staking are both on-chain transactions, they require a transaction fee. Make sure to put aside enough tokens to cover those transaction costs.
