Staking Tron with Ledger

Earn money while holding Tron (TRX)

Staking is the process of holding funds in a cryptocurrency wallet to support the operations of a blockchain network and, in return, holders are rewarded for their contribution.

Tron achieves a high rate of transactions per second (TPS) through a Delegated Proof of Stake mechanism. In the consensus, there are Super Representatives (SR) which are the block producers on the network. By making blocks those SR earn TRX rewards, that are redistributed to their voters.

Staking Tron with Ledger


You can earn passive income by participating in the Tron network using the voting system.

The current annual yield on Tron is around 7%, minus the Super Representatives' fees.

The rewards you’ll receive will depend on the SR you vote for.
You can claim your rewards every 24 hours or receive it directly on your account depending on the SR.

The benefits of staking Tron

Zero risk

Delegated funds cannot be lost or stolen. If a Super Representative isn’t compliant, there is no consequence to you.

High transaction rate

This network has one of the highest transaction rates, making it very scalable by design.

Free transactions

Every day, you automatically receive bandwidth which is used to cover the cost of around 20 transactions.
In addition, you can receive extra bandwidth by freezing your assets.

What is Tron?

TRON is a smart contracts platform that entered the scene following its $70 million ICO on Ethereum in September 2017.
After officially migrating away from Ethereum in June 2018, TRON has focused on becoming a developer-friendly ecosystem for decentralized applications (Dapps).

Frequently Asked Questions

Depending on the Super Representative, either you have claimable rewards every 24 hours, where you manually claim them using the button (rewards are on-chain), or your rewards are off-chain meaning you rely on the policy of the Super Representative to get your reward directly from them.

Delegating Tron is safe. The user keeps control over his private keys and never lose ownership over the assets. Delegating your assets from a hardware wallet provides you with another layer of unbreakable security.

By voting your Tron assets, you participate in the consensus mechanism because they are frozen. In exchange, you get rewards as defined by the protocol. If you plan to hold on to TRXs for some time, delegating will help you accumulate more TRXs while contributing to the network. Voting is the only way you get rewards.

The top 27 Super Representatives are responsible for consensus. The list of the top 27 is updated every 6 hours. Using Ledger Live and your hardware wallet, go to the voting page and select your Super Representative(s) then allocate votes to each one. You can vote for up to 5 SRs in one operation. Please note that if you decide to unfreeze TRX, your votes will be automatically reset and your assets become available for transactions once again.
