What is Crypto.com Soft Staking?

Crypto.com Soft Staking is another way to earn rewards simply by holding a balance in your Crypto.com Exchange wallet.

Note: The Exchange wallet is different from your App wallet. For free and instant transfer of funds from your App to your Exchange wallet, please follow these steps. How to deposit cryptocurrency to my Crypto.com Exchange wallet (Crypto.com App Wallet Address).

How is this different from staking CRO?

“CRO Staking” is different as it requires you to stake a minimum of 10,000 CRO for 6 months on Crypto.com Exchange. CRO Staking is rewarded with its own range of benefits: rebates, 20% APR, & Syndicate access. Staked CRO can not be withdrawn until the committed 6 months duration is complete.

Crypto.com Soft Staking rewards Exchange users with available tokens including BTC, LTC, and ETH. It offers more flexibility by rewarding you based on your daily Exchange wallet balances with no commitment period required, while extra rewards apply to those who are actively CRO staking.

Who can participate in Crypto.com Soft Staking?

Starter and Advanced users of the Exchange can use this feature except for citizens and residents of Hong Kong SAR, Switzerland, and Malta.

What is Exclusive Soft Staking Rewards?

Exclusive Soft Staking Rewards are another form of soft staking, where selected tokens would have:

  • Increased APR

  • Unlimited staking balance for users (users can gain interest on more than the current limit)

  • No minimum threshold for soft staking

This is offered to our Retail VIP users.

How is Crypto.com Soft Staking calculated?

We will calculate daily rewards according to the snapshots of the currency held by users at 22:00:00 UTC each day.

The snapshot will include your funds under Available and In Order. This means funds that in order due to trading and subscribing to Syndicate sales will also be counted - trade away!

Daily interest will be calculated with the below formula:

Daily Interest = Balance x (APR/365)

When will I receive my daily interest?

It will be distributed to your token’s balance within an hour after 00:00:00 UTC since you have opted in and your balance is greater than or equal to the minimum threshold.

Where can I see my earnings from both CRO Staking and Soft Staking?

You can view your daily earnings in the Stake & Earn section under Earnings History.
