How To Stake KAVA Tokens

Here’s our comprehensive guide to stake KAVA tokens and earn block rewards using Keplr, Cosmostation and Trust Wallets.

To avoid the hassle of manually claiming and restaking tokens, use REstake to autocompound your KAVA.

KAVA tokens can be bought using centralized exchanges, like Coinbase, KrakenBinance.us or Binance.com if you’re located outside the United States.

Our node’s page on Kavascan can be found here.
