Start Stacking

There are multiple ways to stack and earn bitcoin: on an exchange, in a non-custodial pool, or by yourself. Which way is right for you, depends on how experienced with crypto you are and how much STX you have available.

On an exchange

New to crypto? These custodial exchanges will make Stacking easy for you. They’ll hold your STX for you and pool it together with other stackers.

In a pool

New to crypto or just looking for a simple option? These services will pool your Stacks with others and pay your rewards out at the end of each cycle.

On your own

If you have enough Stacks to meet the protocol minimum (generally above 100,000 STX), you can enter Stacking without joining a pool.

For institutions and large holders

Large Stacks holders may consider custody offerings from leaders in the digital asset management space.
