What's the APY for staking with Ledger by Figment?

  • APY (annual percentage yield) refers to the growth rate of your NEAR stake as rewards are applied to it. 
  • The return for staking with Ledger is in line with the Near Protocol nominal yield minus a commission fee paid to Ledger and Figment for providing the staking service.
  • Please note that staking rewards depend on a number of factors including the network’s performance and node uptime.
