CRO Staking Benefits

Staking CRO on the App will give you the following benefits:

CRO Stake Rewards: Receive CRO at 4% p.a. for Jade Green or Royal Indigo, 8% p.a. for Frosted Rose Gold, Icy White, and Obsidian tiers while the amount is staked.

The rewards are paid on weekly basis.

CRO Staking rates have been changed from 10% (12% for private users) to 4% (8% for private users) effective June 1, 2022.

  • Users with an existing stake (before 1 June, 2022 00:00 UTC) will still receive the 10%/12% rate until 180 days staking period is over. New rate (4%/8%) will take effect once the staking period has matured or if there is any staking activity that changes your CRO staked amount.

For details of different levels of benefits in relation to the amount of staked CRO, please refer to the Cards section of our website.

When should I stake CRO to secure the Visa card?

Staking CRO will give you the staking benefits stated above.

You need to stake enough CRO for your metal Visa card. When the stake is locked, we will review your application and as soon as your card status is changed to "Shipped", the card will be on its way to you.

Can I increase the staking amount (upgrade)?

Yes. During the initial 180-days staking period, you can increase the amount of staked CRO, by going to your CRO wallet in the app and selecting the Upgrade button.

You will be prompted to add the difference between your existing stake and the one you are going for (so, for example, if you've currently staked 2,000 CRO and would like to increase to 20,000 CRO, you will need to add 18,000 CRO).

The new stake will reset the timer and another 180-days period will start. To increase your staking amount after your card has been issued, please follow this upgrade process (U.S.) (Singapore) (E.U & U.K) (Canada)(Brazil)(Australia).

How can I unlock my CRO?

After the 180-days staking period is completed, you'll be able to unlock your CRO. Simply go to the CRO wallet in your App and tap the “Unstake” button.

Note, that by unlocking CRO you will be losing a number of wallet benefits that come with CRO staking, for example:

However, your card benefits (e.g. Card Cashback (of up to 2%), LoungeKey™ Access, fee-free ATM withdrawal limits, and Interbank Exchange Rates) will not be affected by un-staking CRO.

How to restake CRO tokens?

Users that have unstaked their CRO following the initial 180 days staking period can restake in the app to enjoy CRO staking benefits.

How to restake CRO

  1. Go to your CRO Wallet in the App.

  2. Tap on the Stake button and follow the guided steps.

  3. Staking a higher tier will make you eligible for that tier's Visa Card.

    1. There is an option* to have it issued at the end of the restaking process.

  • The new stake will reset the timer and another 180-days period will start.
