How to stake $ZIL and earn up to 12% APR on Frontier

Staking remains one of the fundamental ways of earning in Crypto & DeFi and most recently in NFTs with the growing interest in that sector. Frontier is excited to support you in your quest to earn income through staking. This guide shows you how to stake assets like $ZIL and earn up to 12% APR on Frontier.

What is $ZIL?

Zil is the native utility token of Zilliqa network used as payment for transactions and smart contracts execution. Zilliqa is a permissionless public blockchain that relies entirely on a sharded network. This makes it possible for it to achieve high throughput and a high rate of transactions per second, allowing it to solve the problem of blockchain scalability and speed without compromising security—an effective way of circumventing the blockchain trilemma.

The blockchain also has its own open-source intermediate-level smart contract language called Scilla - which is focused on preventing blockchain vulnerabilities. $ZIL circulating supply is currently at around 12 billion. Like many other cryptocurrencies, its supply is limited, with a total supply of 21 billion with an annual inflation rate of 5.39%. It is used to execute programs, send transactions, and incentivize actors that support the network. $ZIL is very crucial in maintaining and operating the Zilliqa network. Owning and staking $ZIL allows users to vote on network upgrades and more.

If you own some $ZIL token, you can start earning passive income on your assets through staking on Frontier to access the several $ZIL staking validators, all from a single and mobile interface.
