Where can I check the reward after VID staking?


When attempting to stake, I am using a transaction fee of 43 GWEI and I receive the pop-up box saying I’ll need to confirm 2 transactions.

When I opened up the Meta Mask extension, the gas fee was quite high - around $7 USD. Is that reasonable? I also confirmed anyway but the transaction just got stuck in pending…has anyone been able to get their VID staked?

Lower the gas rate. It should not be that high.

Got it to work using default values on gas, thanks. Are rewards automatically deposited into the wallet or in the Staking app? Is there a link for expected payouts and frequency or perhaps dependent on the work coming in?

Hello, does anybody know the current staking rate for VID? And is it paid daily?
