# Liquid Staking on the Horizon

  1. Staking tokens across different DeFi protocols, allows users to explore new investment opportunities while still earning passive income from staking.
  2. Liquid Staking improves the scalability of blockchain networks by allowing more efficient use of capital. This aspect is crucial for the sustained growth and adoption of blockchain tech across different sectors.

# 1. How often do users receive staking emissions?

Stakers receive emissions from the network accrued over the day (once per 24 hours), and the rate of emissions adjusts every 30 days.

# 2. How often do users get regular rewards?

Rewards are distributed daily.

# 3. Do users need to claim staking rewards manually or are they claimed automatically?

Users must manually claim their staking rewards through the Nibiru Web App UI.

# 4. Are coins frozen when a user stakes them?

Staked tokens become non-transferable and illiquid.

Yes, there is a 21-day period for unstaking also known as unbonding. However, the unbonding process can be canceled at any time.

# 6. Can users re-delegate from one validator to another?

Users can re-delegate from one validator to another. The first re-delegation occurs immediately, but subsequent re-delegations (from the 2nd to the 3rd delegator) require a 21-day waiting period.
