How to Delegate

Learn how to delegate MINA and receive staking rewards

Instead of running your own node, you can delegate MINA to a validator (block producer) and receive staking rewards.


First, ensure you installed a Mina wallet with funds.

Delegating MINA

Here’s how to delegate MINA within common wallets:

  • Auro - Open the wallet, tap “Staking”, tap “Go to Staking”, select a block producer, and confirm the transaction details.

  • Ledger Hardware Wallet - Follow the instructions on creating a Ledger Mina account via Auro Wallet here, then see the instructions for staking MINA on Auro wallet above.

When sending transactions on a blockchain, such as Mina, senders must include a transaction fee. Most wallets will calculate a recommended fee for you. But you can also view a suggested fee amount based on current network transaction volume, at this community-created Gas Station website.
