Let’s get right into it!
To start off, be sure you have two things: Fewcha Aptos wallet installed in your web browser, and more than 11 Aptos. 11 Aptos is the minimum required to stake and you will need extra to pay for transaction fees. This tutorial assumes that you will be staking in a desktop PC.
NOTE: If at any time the Fewcha Wallet App doesn’t respond, you may need to unlock it again.
NOTE: If at any time the Fewcha Portfolio App doesn’t respond, just refresh it again.
Step 1: Open up the Fewcha app and click on “Portfolio”. This will open up a new tab within your browser and take you to the Fewcha Portfolio online app.
Step 2: Connect Fewcha Wallet to the Fewcha Portfolio by clicking on “Connect to Fewcha”.
Step 3: Confirm connection on the Fewcha App Extension.
Step 4: Click on “Delegating Staking”.
Step 5: Click on “Pools”.
Step 6: Click on any Aptos Pool which you think is right for you. Each of these pools is led by a validator. Each has its own risk(A validator can be a bad actor). Make sure you pick the right pool that will put your interests first. Each of these pools gives a different APR. You can choose the highest APR pool or the pool from the validator that is the most reputable.
Step 7: Click on “Stake”.
Step 8: Click on Pool Info After confirming the pool you want.
Step 9: Enter the amount of Aptos you want to stake(Has to be over 11) and click on “Review.”
