5. Can I stake GAL tokens from multiple wallets?

Yes, you can stake GAL tokens from multiple wallets using the same Galxe ID. However, please keep in mind that:

  • Your boosted rewards are directly linked to your Galxe ID.

  • Before changing or unbinding a wallet, you must first unstake all GAL tokens from it.

  • When unstaking, you can only withdraw the amount staked from the specific wallet.


Scenario

🧠 E.g.: You're Galxe ID-8, and you've staked a total of 300 GAL with two wallet addresses—address A (100 GAL) and address B (200 GAL).


If you choose to unstake 300 GAL:

  • Unstake 100 GAL from wallet address A by logging in with A.

  • Unstake the remaining 200 GAL from wallet address B by logging in separately.

If you opt to unbind wallet A:

  • First, ensure all 100 GAL from wallet address A have been unstaked before the unbinding process.

6. Can I refer friends to GAL Staking and earn rewards?

Yes, referring friends to GAL Staking can boost your rewards by up to 50%, depending on the amount they stake before the snapshot period. Here's how it works:

  • To qualify for referral rewards, your friends must input your referral code when they stake their GAL.

  • The Referrals Dashboard refreshes daily at UTC 00:00.

13. Can I unstake my GAL tokens at any time?

Yes, you have the flexibility to unstake your GAL whenever you choose. You can also adjust the unstake amount according to your preferences. However, keep in mind:

  • Impact on Boosted Rewards: Any unstaking action nullifies the accrued boost rewards, even in promotional periods.

  • Impact on Referrer Boosted Rewards: If you've used a referral code while staking, unstaking your GAL will affect the boosted rewards of your referrer.


Scenario

🧠 E.g.: Galxe offers a 20% boost reward for staking if you stake by 8th May, 2024, at 12 AM UTC.


Stake 50 GAL on May 1 without unstaking:

  • Earn a 20% boost reward until your next unstaking.

Stake 50 GAL on May 1 and unstake 50 GAL on 3rd May:

  • Earn a 20% boost reward from May 1 - May 3.

  • Upon unstaking, boost reward resets to 0%.

Stake 50 GAL on May 1, unstake 10 GAL on 3rd May, then restake 100 GAL on 6th May:

  • Earn a 20% boost reward from May 1 - May 3.

  • Upon unstaking, boost reward resets to 0% between May 3 - May 6.

  • Upon restaking, earn a 20% boost until your next unstaking.

Stake 50 GAL on 1st May, unstake 10 GAL on 9th May, then restake 10 GAL on 20th May:

  • Earn a 20% boost reward from May 1 to May 9.

  • Upon unstaking, boost reward resets to 0%.

  • Despite restaking on 20th May, as the boost period has ended, boost reward remains at 0%.

Your staking decisions throughout this period dictate the duration of the boost. Any subsequent unstaking action will nullify the boost on your GAL stake.

14. Is there a Lock-Up Period after unstaking GAL tokens?

Yes, there's a mandatory 7-days Lock-Up Period before your tokens are returned.


Scenario

🧠 E.g.: You're Galxe ID-8, and you've staked a total of 300 GAL with two wallet addresses—address A (100 GAL) and address B (200 GAL).


If you decide to unstake 50 GAL on 10th May, 2024:

  • The unstaked tokens (50 GAL) will only be available on 17th May, 2024, at the end of the Lock-Up Period.

15. Can I cancel my unstake request during the Lock-Up Period?

Yes, you have the option to revoke your unstake request before the Lock-Up Period ends.


Scenario

🧠 E.g.: You're Galxe ID-8, and you've staked a total of 300 GAL with two wallet—address A and address B. On 10th May, 2024, you initiated an unstake request for 50 GAL.


If you choose to cancel the unstake request:

  • You must do so before the Lock-Up Period ends, which is before 17th May, 2024.

16. What happens if my referred friend unstakes their GAL tokens?

If your referred friend decides to unstake their GAL tokens, it may decrease the total amount staked by your referrals, therefore, impacting your boosted rewards.

  • You can check the status of your referral boost on the Referral Dashboard, which refreshes daily at UTC 00:00.


Scenario

🧠 E.g.: You refer your friend Alisa to GAL Staking, and she decides to stake 1100 GAL tokens with your referral code, bringing your total referral staked amount to 1100 GAL and boosting your rewards by 50%.


If Alisa unstakes 780 GAL tokens on 10th May, 2024:

  • Your referral boost rewards may drop to +10% on 11th May, 2024 as your total referral staked amount drops to 320 GAL.

  • However, this adjustment is provisional until the end of the 7-days Lock-Up Period for Alisa, scheduled for 17th May, 2024.

If Alisa revokes the unstake request on 16th May, 2024:

  • Your referral boosted rewards will be restored to their initial value, reflecting the total amount staked by Alisa.
