Fund Your Wallet
To delegate ADA, you first need to have ADA in your wallet. Your balance should be at least 5 ADA to delegate to a stake pool. On the wallet main page copy Receive Address of the wallet.
Transfer ADA from your exchange or another wallet to this address.
Delegate to a Stake Pool
Open the Staking page in your Typhon Wallet
Click the button Start
Feel free to explore and select a stake pool that aligns with your preferences. As an option, you might consider utilizing our stake pool, BKV.
Confirm the delegation. There will be a small fee for the delegation transaction, and a 2 ADA deposit will be taken from your account by the blockchain. This deposit will be returned when you undelegate your wallet
After confirming the delegation transaction, you should see the BKV pool in your staking page.
It may take a few epochs (Cardano’s time units, each epoch lasts five days) for your delegation to become active and start earning rewards. Please note that there is a waiting period of about 10 days (2 epochs) before any rewards can be generated.
And that’s it! You’ve successfully delegated your ADA to the staking pool using the Typhon Wallet. Remember, the rewards are automatically collected and added to your wallet balance at the end of each epoch. You can check your rewards in the “Rewards” section of your Typhon Wallet.
Please note that the steps might slightly vary depending on the updates to the Typhon Wallet or the Cardano network. \
