# Wethio Staking

Staking services under Wethio enable users to secure the chain and earn ZYN rewards in the process. Learn more about the instructions of the on-staking services to stake and earn rewards on Wethio.

## Eligibility and Voting

To become eligible for staking, you need to have a wallet connected to WethioMaster Governance Dapp

Once you have a connected wallet ready, you can try voting for some Masternodes. In case you are facing any trouble in connecting to the Wethio network, visit “Getting connected”

## Voting

Access, Wethio, our governace Dapp, to begin voting for Masternode

## Unvoting

## Withdrawal

Note: Withdraws can only be done after the unlock period expires.

## Reward Calculation Formula and Details

A maximum of 157 masternodes take part in signin the blocks per epoch, an epoch is the duration to generate 900 blocks , at 2 seconds per block , that is equal to 1800 seconds or 30 minutes. After each epoch the reward is distributed , a total of 125 Zynecoins are distributed to the masternodes and the voters involved in that epoch, based on the signatures the voted masternode made during that epoch.

**So suppose there are n masternodes , c being the signature made by each masternode , then the total reward of a masternode is (ci/sum of all signatures ) * 125 Zyn**

The further reward distribution per masternode is done as follows -

**a) Owner Reward - 40 % of Ri**

**b) Voters Reward - 10 % of Ri (distributed into all the voters , including the owner [the initial voter] , in the ratio of the Zyn they have staked in this masternode)**

**c) Treasury Reward - 25 % of Ri**

**d) Foundation Reward - 25 % of Ri Treasury and Foundation are accounts maintained by the Wethio blockchain, and the sum held by these accounts are used for funding Wethio's development.**

Now let us move ahead and check some examples Suppose there are 4 Masternodes , each making an equal number of signatures , and the epoch reward is 80 Zyn. For this scenario, suppose there are no additional voters other than the masternode owner , each setting up a masternode with 100 Zyn initial set up. Since there are 4 masternodes , each gets 20 Zyn reward for this epoch. Further reward distribution is as follows

Owner reward - 40% of 20 Zyn => 8 Zyn>

Voter Reward - ((10% of 20) * 100)/100 Zyn => 2 Zyn

Treasury Reward - 25 % of 20 Zyn => 5 Zyn

Foundation Reward - 25 % of 20 Zyn => 5 Zyn

For second example , let us include voters into the equation , with each voter voting 10 Zyn to one of the 4 masternodes , that is each masternode now has 110 total staking for this epoch (100 from the owner , 10 from the voter)

Owner reward - 40% of 20 Zyn => 8 Zyn

Voter Reward - ((10% of 20) * 100)/110 Zyn (Goes to the owner)

+((10% of 20)* 10)/110 Zyn (Goes to the voter who voted 10 Zyn to this masternode)

Treasury Reward - 25 % of 20 Zyn => 5 Zyn

Foundation Reward - 25 % of 20 Zyn => 5 Zyn

Now suppose with the above conditions staying the same , each masternode gets voted by all the 4 voters present , such that each masternode has 140 Zyn staked , (100 from initial owner and 40 from the voters , 10 per voter)

Owner reward - 40% of 20 Zyn => 8 Zyn

Voter Reward - ((10% of 20) * 100)/140 Zyn

+(((10% of 20)

*10)/140)*4 Zyn (As now there are total 5 voters)Treasury Reward - 25 % of 20 Zyn => 5 Zyn

Foundation Reward - 25 % of 20 Zyn => 5 Zyn

**A voter can vote for any number of masternodes , a minimal amount is fixed for voting which is equal to 10 Zyn. And the voter will collect reward from each masternode that gets reward pertaining to an epoch.**

**For calculations per week or per year , the reward can be multiplied by the number of epochs that will result in that duration , for example, a week is equal to 336 epochs and a year equals 17520 epochs.**
