This Online Delegation & Staking Services Agreement is between Figment Inc., an Ontario corporation with a place of business at 545 King St. West, Toronto, Ontario, M5V IM1 (“Figment”), and you (“Delegator”)

By delegating Tokens to Figment, Delegator agrees to be bound by the terms of this Agreement. If Delegator does not agree to, understand, or cannot comply with, all of the terms of this Agreement, Delegator must not delegate its Tokens to Figment. As such, please read this Agreement carefully before delegating Tokens toFigment. No signature of either Party is required for this Agreement to be legally binding against eachParty. This Agreement is legally binding on the Effective Date.


  • Some blockchain protocols achieve consensus among distributed nodes through a system known as“proof-of-stake”;
  • Certain blockchain protocols require the protocol’s token-holders to stake their tokens to participate in the consensus validation process;
  • A proof-of-stake system enables at least one of the staking token-holders to validate and sign the next definitive serial transaction record;
  • To incentivize staking and validation, the proof-of-stake system grants additional tokens to the staking token-holder(s) selected to perform staking processes, as a reward for performing such staking processes;
  • Because validating and signing transaction records requires certain computational infrastructure, some token-holders choose to delegate management of staking processes to third parties that validate and sign transaction records for such token-holders;
  • Figment offers non-custodial validation-as-a-service to token-holders through Figment’s proprietary computational systems that facilitate the management of staking processes; and
  • Delegator wishes to delegate management of the staking of tokens to Figment, and Figment agrees to manage such staking, on the provisions of this Agreement.

    1.1. Services. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, Figment (a) will stake the Tokens Delegator has delegated to Figment by exercising the Validation Rights in a manner intended to generate NetRewards; and (b) may vote the Tokens by exercising the Voting Rights, unless the Delegator elects to exercise the Voting Rights in accordance with the protocols of the applicable SupportedBlockchains (collectively, the “Services”). Figment may consolidate the Token Rights delegated by Delegator to Figment under this Agreement with other Validation Rights and Voting Rights delegated to or otherwise exercised by Figment.

    1.2. Non-Custodial. Delegator acknowledges and agrees that Figment will not accept or take custody over any Rewards or Tokens on behalf of Delegator, has no responsibility or control over whether a Supported Blockchain distributes any Rewards to Delegator, and that Figment’s sole obligation under this Agreement is to perform the Services, upon the terms and conditions set forth in thisAgreement.

    1.3. Transfer of Net Rewards. Figment’s performance of the Services is intended to result in the transfer of Net Rewards by the Supported Blockchains as follows: (a) to Delegator by transferringNet Rewards to the wallet address from which Delegator delegated the Tokens to Figment under this Agreement; (b) to Figment as a service fee; and (c) the Net Rewards may be in the same denomination as the Tokens that Delegator delegated to Figment under this Agreement. The transfer of Net Rewards is subject to the protocols of the Supported Blockchains. Delegator acknowledges that the transfer of Net Rewards by the Supported Blockchains is not guaranteed, that Delegator may not receive the Delegator’s Rewards, and that Figment is not responsible in any way for any failure by the Supported Blockchains to transfer Net Rewards to Delegator or the loss, destruction, or transfer of Net Rewards to the incorrect wallet address of Delegator.

    1.4. Service Fee. Figment’s service fee for each Supported Blockchain as of the date hereof is included here. Service fees are provided for reference only and are subject to change. Delegator is advised to visit the on-chain service fee source to view current network parameters for validator service fees.

    1.5. Protocol Changes, Airdrops & Forks. Delegator acknowledges that Supported Blockchain protocols may change from time to time, and airdrops or forks may arise from time to time, in each case outside of the control of Figment and that, therefore, except as may be otherwise provided in this Agreement: (a) Figment may respond to protocol changes, airdrops or forks in any way that Figment determines appropriate in its sole discretion; (b) the exercise by Figment of any right or power that is available to it in its capacity as a validating node on a SupportedBlockchain shall not constitute a breach or violation any obligation owed by Figment to Delegator under this Agreement; and (c) Figment is not responsible for any losses, liabilities, damages, or reductions in value in respect of the Tokens or otherwise suffered by Delegator in connection with protocol changes, airdrops or forks.

    1.6. Withdrawal. Tokens withdrawn by Delegator may be subject to unbonding periods imposed by the protocols of the Supported Blockchains. Tokens and Net Rewards may be unavailable toDelegator during the unbonding periods and may be subject to other restrictions imposed by theSupported Blockchains.
