Staking with Yoroi Wallet works with Trezor Model T and Ledger Nano S|X
Since the dawn of Cardano’s Shelley era, you can delegate your ADA coins to a stake pool. This is known as staking where you earn new ADA as staking rewards. This guide is primarily for ada holders who wish to delegate their ada to a stake pool, but are not sure about where to start.
I’m using a Trezor Model T, I will update my firmware.
I’m using a Ledger Nano S or X, I will update my firmware with Ledger Live
|1) Connect your Ledger Nano, enter PIN and open Ledger Live.|
|2) Click Manager and then upgrade your firmware to [version 1.6 or greater for Ledger Nano S] or [version 1.2.4 or greater for Ledger Nano X].|
|3) Update the Cardano ADA app to version 2.0.3 or greater.|

Tips and Tricks
- Staked funds always remain in your possession. You are not sending funds away.
- You are free to move funds anytime. There is no lock up period.
- Delegating requires a 2 ADA deposit. You get back your deposit when you undelegate your stake.
- Staking does not require you to leave any wallets open. Feel free to close.
- You can check the progress of your rewards every epoch or 5 days.
- Rewards multiply with the power of compounding.
- If you add more ADA to your account, the new ADA is automatically delegated. No need to re-delegate!
- A minimum of 10 ADA is required to start a delegation.
