Top 10 Market Cap Staking Yields – December 2, 2022

The table below is the current (December 2, 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.

Not a lot of big changes this week, except for Polkadot ($DOT.X). Polkadot’s drop in total stake could likely be due to stakers who were worried about the state of the market in late October to early November. 

Polkadot has a lock-up period of 28 days, so it wouldn’t be a big surprise to see this number continue to drop over the next couple of weeks.

Token Terminal Wants Crypto Investors To Think More Traditionally About Valuing Their Favorite Protocols & Chains

Crypto has some all-star metrics — market capitalization, circulating supply, distribution, TVL, to name a few. However, though these metrics are designed to help discern the value of a protocol or chain, they don’t do that very well. They’re all indicators of what protocols and chains are seen as valuable by users.

But people appraise things incorrectly all the time; and use or brand doesn’t necessary equal value.
