  • A list of the most common questions has released an update to its account page with a new feature for KYC-enabled staking. This update allows users to stake their tokens on locked nodes verified through a Know Your Customer (KYC) process. To use this feature, node owners must specify a KYC provider URL and a management account address. The URL will redirect the user to the KYC provider, which will perform the necessary compliance steps first. At the same time, the management account can control the addresses that successfully completed the KYC process.


Ubisoft is the first company to implement a GDPR-compliant staking mechanism for its nodes. This innovative system requires stakers to undergo a Know Your Customer (KYC) process provided by the renowned KYC provider Stakers can be assured that their personal data is kept secure and that they retain ownership of their uploaded documents and metadata as it is stored on’s decentralized storage infrastructure.

By requiring a KYC verification, Ubisoft can ensure that only compliant individuals or entities can stake on their nodes, thereby avoiding any potential violations of GDPR regulations. This unique staking system not only allows Ubisoft to comply with GDPR requirements but also helps to protect the privacy of stakers and maintain the integrity of the staking process.

How many ALEPH do I need to stake?

The Minimum amount is 10k ALEPH.

Will there be a grace period when I unstake?

There is no grace period.

How long will my stake be locked?

Staking ALEPH is non-custodial, and therefore your stake is not locked. The network pings your wallet continuously to check if the amount staked is still present. If the amount is lower than the minimal amount required to stake, you will automatically be unstaked.

No, if you add more ALEPH to your wallet, it will automatically auto-compound.
