Staking is the primary value accrual strategy of MOVE DAO. Stakers stake their MOVE tokens on to earn rebase rewards. The rebase rewards come from the proceeds from bond sales, and can vary based on the number of MOVE staked in the protocol and the reward rate set by monetary policy.

Staking is a passive, long-term strategy. The increase in your stake of MOVE translates into a constantly falling cost basis converging on zero. This means even if the market price of MOVE drops below your initial purchase price, given a long enough staking period, the increase in your staked MOVE balance should eventually outpace the fall in price.

When you stake, you lock MOVE and your MOVE balance rebases up automatically at the end of every epoch.

When you unstake, you receive the MOVE tokens you have earned through the completed staking rewards. Unstaking means the user will forfeit the upcoming rebase reward. Note that the forfeited reward is only applicable to the unstaked amount; the remaining staked MOVE (if any) will continue to receive rebase rewards.
