Building OSS Reputation
Live on Testnet

Build reputation for securing the software supply chain

The tea Protocol supports staking TEA tokens to OSS projects. Staking is the first step for OSS projects, developers, and stakers to build their reputations. As more stakers conduct due diligence prior to staking TEA to a project, their decision to stake contributes to the project's reputation.
Estimate potential future earnings
Staking is how tea users earn rewards by supporting specific projects in the OSS ecosystem. Anyone can stake TEA tokens to open-source software projects registered with the tea Protocol.
Stake 1,000 TEA
and earn up to
216 TEA*
in 1 year
in 1 year
in 2 years
in 3 years
in 4 years
on registered projects
with 21.56% yield (in the first year)
*Estimation based on average yield and tokens staked. Projected rewards may vary, might not hold any inherent value and their value can be subject to change due to various factors. Past results do not predict future returns. No predictions should be interpreted as investment advice.

Give projects a louder say in the teaDAO

The teaDAO facilitates decentralized governance of the tea Protocol. Your staked TEA in projects does more than support - It also magnifies project's influence in shaping teaDAO's future.

Become a stakeholder in OSS projects that you love the most

Due Diligence and Staking

Support your favorited projects by staking TEA tokens on them, increasing their reputation. When you stake, you also delegate an equivalent voting power to the project.

Get Rewarded

Staking rewards are distributed daily and ready for you to claim. The project you are staking, and its dependencies, are also rewarded via staking commissions.

Empower Projects You Believe in

Projects can use the combination of tokens they stake, and the voting power delegated by the community via staking, to participate on proposals raised in the teaDAO.

Stake tokens, submit vulnerability reports, earn rewards.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is staking in the tea Protocol?

Staking is using TEA cryptographic tokens to support open-source software projects registered with the tea Protocol. Staking is not riskless but can generate token rewards that are claimable daily and allows you to participate in the governance of the tea Protocol.

How does staking work?

Anyone holding TEA can stake TEA tokens to OSS projects that are registered with the tea Protocol. The tea web app facilitates the staking process for all protocol participants.

How are staking rewards calculated?

Staking rewards are calculated based on several factors—how much TEA is staked, the average yield generated by the project, and the duration of the staking period. Staking rewards can be partially forfeited ("slashed") if the OSS project is not well maintained.

When can I claim my staking rewards?

New staking rewards are distributed daily and can be claimed at any time. Claiming rewards is subject to gas fees.
