Persistence FAQ

Where can I explore the Persistence Network and create a Persistence wallet?

Black arrow

What is the name of the asset being staked?

Black arrow

Persistence's native token, XPRT, is used to stake and to participate in on-chain governance.

Why stake XPRT?

Black arrow

Initially, XPRT is being staked to earn new issuance ("inflationary") subsidies. That means that the XPRT supply will increase, and stakers will capture the newly issued XPRT. Generally, you will earn around 35% annually on your staked XPRT, but that can change. Since staking rewards are tied to inflation, read about how inflation and rewards are related here.

Stakers will also capture fees from network transactions, so as Persistence transaction volume increases, Persistence stakers will earn more than new issuance subsidies.

The XPRT also gives stakers the right to vote on policy decisions for how the Persistence will operate and distribute treasury funds.

How long does it take to stake & unstake XPRT?

Black arrow

From the moment you initiate the unbonding process, it takes 21 days to unstake. During this time, you will not earn rewards. When the process is complete, you can transfer/trade your XPRTs.

Do I maintain custody of my XPRT tokens? Who or what controls my staked XPRT token?

Black arrow

You can self-custody your Persistence tokens, ideally using a Ledger hardware wallet.

Figment has partnerships with a number of top-in-class custodians:

The Persistence protocol takes control of your XPRT tokens while you are staking. If you unbond your tokens, this process will take 21 days before the protocol returns your tokens to you. While your XPRT is staked, you may participate in on-chain governance by voting on different proposals.

Can my staked XPRT be slashed (seized or destroyed)?

Black arrow

Yes, a portion of your staked XPRT can be destroyed. There are two ways this can happen:

  1. If you delegate to a validator that is offline for a certain amount of time (9,500/10,000 blocks), you will lose 0.01% of the tokens you have delegated to that validator.
  2. If you delegate to a validator that signs the same block twice with the same key, you will lose 5% of the tokens you have delegated to that validator.

How is staking income disbursed? Is staking income liquid or automatically staked?

Black arrow

Staking income on Persistence is automatically distributed every block. Figment is never in control of your rewards.

Staking income is liquid, but you will need to claim it.

Can I lose potential staking rewards?

Black arrow

Your potential rewards depend upon validator performance. When your validator is down, you will not be earning staking income.

What is the rate of new issuance (aka "annual inflation") for XPRT? How does the token supply change?

Black arrow

The new issuance ("inflation") rate is around 35% of the total supply. The network will cut its inflation in half every two years, and the maximum supply is expected to be reached by 2035.

How are decisions about Persistence made and executed?

Black arrow

Persistence uses token voting for on-chain governance.
