Stacking providers have made it easy for you to participate in a way that fits your needs best, from non-custodial to enterprise-grade options for institutions and large holders.
By locking up STX tokens on the network, or 'Stacking', you provide valuable security benefits to the network. Your reward is bitcoin yield.
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.
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.
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.
If you have enough Stacks to meet the protocol minimum (generally above 100,000 STX), you can enter Stacking without joining a pool.
Large Stacks holders may consider custody offerings from leaders in the digital asset management space.
