Top 10 Market Cap Staking Yields – November 11, 2022

The table below is the current (November 11, 2022) staking yield rates of the top ten cryptocurrencies by their market cap. Not all cryptocurrencies have a staking mechanism on their networks, so, for example, you don’t see Bitcoin ($BTC.X) listed. 

Staked % is what percent of the total supply of that cryptocurrency is currently used to earn staking rewards. Sometimes called ‘Locked Up.’

The Lock-Up Period is how long crypto must stay staked before you can withdraw it and/or any rewards earned. 

Nominal Yields are the rewards listed, whereas Real Yield is the expected return when factoring in other costs, factors, or changes like inflation rates (not listed). 

It should also be noted that calculations and factors for Real Yields can vary substantially from one week to the next. Additionally, the Nominal Yield may have an expected range but is not guaranteed. For example, Polkadot’s ($DOT.X) Nominal Yield is advertised/listed between 8% to 14%. 

Another factor to consider is that the rewards are not in US Dollars but in token/crypto your stake. Staking Cardano ($ADA.X) rewards you in ADA and so forth. 

This table is updated weekly.

Ethereum (ETH) 13% (+0.1%) 12+ months 6.8 % (+2.8%) 3.5% (+2.4%)

There are marginal drops in the total staked supply for Polygon ($MATIC.X), Cosmos ($ATOM.X), and Near ($NEAR.X) and marginal gains for Elrond and Tron. Next week may show some major changes due to the FTX disaster unfolding. 

Cardano might be the asset to watch for any FUD from stakers. Cardano ($ADA.X) doesn’t require a lock-up period, so if there is a major drop, it might signal further unstakes across the board.

Real yields are mostly unchanged, except for Ethereum ($ETH.X), which saw its real yield more than double to 3.5%. 

Tron may be the more interesting of the bunch to observe if the arrangement between FTX ($FTX.X) and Tron ($TRX.X) works out.
