Stake FCTR To Participate In Factor Governance

Step 1: Staking your FCTR tokens

Navigate to the governance page on the Factor dapp. This can be done via selecting the "Stake FCTR" tab on the navigation bar.

You will be able to view basic information about staked FCTR on this page. This includes your own veFCTR balance, if any.

Step 2: Approve the governance contract

If this is your first time staking with Factor, you will be required to approve the governance contract. This requires a signature as it allows the contract to manage your FCTR tokens.

Enter the amount of FCTR tokens to be staked and you should be prompted to approve the contract for the specified amount.

Step 3: Select your staking duration

Once approval has been given, you can then select your staking duration which ranges from a minimum of 1 week all the way to a maximum of 2 years. The longer your FCTR stake, the more veFCTR you will receive thereby representing a greater share of votes as well as rewards allocation. The veFCTR received from staking can only be unstaked following the selected staking period.

The amount of veFCTR you will receive for your selected staking amount and duration is displayed at the bottom.

Step 4: Stake FCTR

Upon selecting the "Stake" button, you will be prompted to sign the transaction in your wallet. Once the transaction is confirmed, you will be able to view your new FCTR and veFCTR balance.

That's it! You are now ready to vote on various FactorDAO governance proposals as well as benefit from various Factor ecosystem incentives.
