Looking for more ways to get involved?

There are many other ways to support Vara including becoming
a nominator, an official Ambassador, or participating in network governance.

    Become a Nominator

    Nominators play a crucial role in Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus mechanisms, contributing indirectly to the network's health and security by delegating tokens to reliable validators.

    VARA holders can earn rewards by staking tokens and nominating validators. Elected validators that produce blocks redistribute rewards to their nominators.

    Here's how to become a nominator:
