Q: What is the best option to store my Tezos (XTZ)?
A: We would highly recommend a certified hardware wallet.
Q: Is there a GUI wallet which I can use with my certified hardware wallet?
A: Yes, we would recommend Kukai, Galleon, Magma, Ledger Live, or SimpleStaking. Make sure to always check the correct address in your browser to avoid phishing attacks.
Q: Does StakeNow have control over my Tezos (XTZ) or my private key?
A: No, at no point do we have control over your Tezos (XTZ) or your private keys. With your delegation, you yourself make use of the (validation/voting) rights derived from the Tezos (XTZ) and set StakeNow as the beneficiary.
Q: Do you vote on Tezos protocol amendments?
A: Due to regulatory reasons, we will abstain from voting on Tezos protocol amendments with delegations to StakeNow. We act as a neutral body in the network, which does not influence the outcome of votes.
Q: How can I check your payout accuracy?
A: You can check our payout accuracy at Baking Bad.
Q: Is there a minimum or maximum delegation amount?

Q: Do you pay taxes?
A: Yes, we pay 19% VAT on our delegation fees.
Q: Do I have to pay taxes?
