This guide will explain how to earn interest on your tezos using a Ledger hardware wallet.

Above 1000 euros worth of tezos, we strongly recommend the use of a Ledger device. This hardware wallet guarantees optimal security of your funds.

What kind of witchcraft is this ?

This step-by-step guide will allow you to delegate your XTZ (tezos) – the native asset of the Tezos network – to Coinhouse in order to benefit from a passive income of around 6 to 7% annually in XTZ, without any risk of losing your tezos capital.

Tezos is a public blockchain network that implements Proof-of-Stake rules to ensure its security. Participants, either directly or indirectly, are paid through the creation of new tezos that are automatically sent to them every three days. 

Participating is a simple process that takes 5 to 10 minutes of your time to set up, no maintenance is required afterwards. 

This is a new form of savings, without going through a financial institution, which rewards you for participating in securing the Tezos network. 

Follow this simple guide to make the most of your tezos and contribute to the good health of this promising network! Welcome to the new economy!

Be aware that Tezos is a promising project but still a very young one. This can be seen as an opportunity with a good risk/reward ratio. However, there is no guarantee on the value of tezos going forward and the volatility is high.

Good to know

  • You retain full control over your funds, under no circumstances can they be recovered by Coinhouse. 
  • Your funds are not blocked, you can sell or send some or all of them at any time. The rewards you receive are automatically recalculated without any intervention on your part.
  • First payments will be made ~21 days after setting up the delegation. This is due to the way the Tezos protocol works.
  • Payments are made every three days directly on your Tezos address. This allows for good compounded interest.
