Thanks for visiting my staking coins page. This needs to be a living document, which means I need to do a good job of keeping it updated. As you may have figured out by looking at my reviews, I am not great about doing regular updates, so any information you can provide to help me via the contact form at the bottom of this page is appreciated. If you see any information out of date, please let me know so I get off my lazy behind and update it.
If you have not looked at my explanation of How To Profit From High Staking Rewards, please check that out first.
I looked around for a page highlighting the various coins with really high staking returns, but had no luck finding them all in one place. I am going to attempt to put the ones I know of here, and hope you guys send me others. The criteria I am going to use are:
- Over 100% yearly staking return.
- Active participation by a development team.
- Percentage currently increasing or very new coin.
- Price below 10000 sats.
These are in no particular order. When I get a larger sample I will sort it all out.
OPC (Opcoin) – https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2401268.0
Read up on my results so far staking OP Coin on my OPC Coin Experiment Page.
Explorer (Use to check current block number) – http://opcoin.prenges.rocks
Staking Return – Using Block time = 1.5 Minutes (PoS time is 3 minutes and PoW time is 3 minutes, so actual block time is 1.5 minutes)
Through Block 100,000 – 1200%
Blocks 100k to 120k – 1500% (starts approx. March 18th, 2018)
Blocks 120k to 150k – 1000% (starts approx. April 6th, 2018)
Blocks 150k to 200k – 500% (starts approx. May 18th, 2018)
Notes: OPC is a short term staking investment for me. The maximum rewards happen in the next two months.
DVRS (Diverse) – https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2683985.0
Explorer – http://explorer.diverseproject.co
Staking Return – Using Block time = 3 Minutes
Through Block 150,000 (approximately October, 6th 2018)
Blocks ending in 100 to 999 – 3000% (ex. block 54,997 earns 3000%)
Blocks ending in 000 to 099 – 7000% (ex. block 55,005 earns 7000%)
HIGHT (Highcoin) – https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2537307.0
Block Time – 1 Minute
Staking Return schedule has many levels from 500% to 12000% and can be found in the Bitcointalk ANN link above.
I have not bought this coin because it is not available on the exchanges I use. If you have please let me know how the staking has gone for you.
Other coins of interest…
I did not include these coins above because they did not meet all the criteria I am looking for, but some do pay out a nice reward.
HOLD (Interstellar Holdings) – https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2357720.0
Notes: I cannot recommend staking HOLD at this time in your personal wallet. Their wallet has a bug which keeps it from staking reliably, and they reduced the Staking Tiers greatly from what they originally promised buyers (and what is still posted in the ANN above). Current HOLD Staking Tiers
I moved my HOLD to a Staking Pool and have had much better results there. For more information see the Proof of Stake Pools Page.
Monkey Coin (MONK) – https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2433238.0
More expensive than most PoS coins, so you are not going to be able to easily afford them. The good news is you can stake with a low amount. I have been getting staking returns with just 100 coins. The current staking setup is going to change in March 2018, so be sure to check the ANN above for the latest information before buying.
SONO / ALTCOM – 160% Reward (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2105778)
MAY (TheresaMay Coin) – Fixed Reward – I am just starting to get a grasp on the returns for MAY. There are no published percentages I can find, so I am calculating based on my own results. At the current 400 coin rate, the return for a year looks like around 350%. It is important to note this does not take into account compounding, or the fact that this coin is doubling to a fixed reward of 800 at block 152k. At that point the yearly return, not including compounding, would be approximately 700%, and it goes on for a long time before increasing even more.
I believe the block time for MAY is 4 minutes, which would put the approximate switch to 800 coins at June 1st, 2018. Based on 4 minute block times, the 800 fixed income period would last until mid-November, 2018… nearly 6 months. I expect demand for this coin to pick up as people find out.
MAY Explorer – https://chainz.cryptoid.info/may/#!crypto
Blocks through 152k – 400 MAY Reward
Blocks 152k to 212k – 800 MAY Reward
Blocks 212k to 216,901 – 1000 MAY Reward
XGOX – Reward past peak, but still higher than most (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2344504.0)
Explorer – http://explorer.xgox.rocks
Blocks through 200k – 250%
Blocks 200k to 250k – 125%
Blocks 250k to 300k – 62.5%
AERM (Aerium) – https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2388626.0
AERM worth a look if you see this soon. The reward schedule is crazy. The Explorer is not working today and it is only available on an exchange I do not have an account on, so difficult for me to give much information. There is only a 1 minute Block time, and the super rewards are moving fast. Once the end is reached, reward is 1000% forever.
LAMBO – 905% Reward https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2208856.0
