How To Stake Tron For Energy

03 April 2021 | 0 comments | Posted by Che Kohler in Geek Chic

Tron staking for energy

The world of cryptocurrency moves at break beck speeds as innovation in this sector shows no sign of slowing down. As it expands and more operations are moved from central authorities to on-chain applications, the more you need to know about how to operate on-chain. If you're already using dapps, DEX's or DEFI protocols, you'll know that these trustless applications come at a cost.

On-chain fees tend to add up pretty quickly, and these resources can eat into your kitty for fun on-chain or, worse, your profits you're making from various on-chain applications. Having to pay on-chain fees means you need to seriously consider the trades you make and how you use the chain, and while TRON is far cheaper to use than most chains, it doesn't mean these small fees don't add up over time.

In fact, with smaller fees, you more likely to be brazen and make changes thinking the prices are negligible only to find out they stack up to a significant amount over time.

Securing resources on TRON

If you're an avid TRON user making plenty of transactions and confirmations daily, it may be worth your time securing resources instead of paying per transaction. You can avoid paying fees by locking up TRON tokens on the network. When you lock up funds, you are given what is known as "ENERGY".

The energy is then used to fund your transactions on-chain and then replenish each day, so you don't have to use your wallet funds to fund transactions.

What is TRON energy?

Energy is the name for a unique resource used to process smart contracts on the TRON network. Smart contracts consume "Energy" in addition to Bandwidth, so be sure you have enough of both when moving your tokens around!

How much energy do I need to use TRON?

You don't need any energy to use TRON as long as your account is funded and you can pay the mining fees, but if you want to avoid those costs, you need to do some calculations. Depending on a few metrics of how you use the chain, you'll have to use several calculation tools and work out your needs based on:

  • Amount of transactions
  • Size of transactions
  • Frequency of transactions

Once you've figured that out, you can lock up TRON for energy and lock up TRON for Bandwidth and continue to use the chain while avoiding mining fees.

How to secure TRON Energy

To secure TRON energy, you will need to have a TRON wallet like TRON-Link and open it up in your browser and follow these steps.

  • Unlock your wallet by putting in your password
  • Once the interface loads, click the "FREEZE" Icon
  • You will be redirected to the TRON scan website.

Obtain resources on TRON scan

Head to TRON scan to obtain resources

  • Then select the "obtain" option.
  • A lightbox will pop up and select the option "TRON power and energy."
  • Add how many TRON tokens you want to lock up.
  • Select that you confirm to lock up TRON for 72 hours
  • Then click freeze, and you're done.

Secure energy for your TRON on-chain activities

That's it; it's as simple as that. Now you can see your energy available in your wallet, so once you perform a transaction, you'll know how much energy you've consumed and, if you need to hold off on transacting, top your energy by freezing more TRON or pay fees for additional transactions.
