So many tokens! At first, I was overwhelmed. There was new lingo to get on top of - what does 'stake' mean? Where do I 'claim' my tokens? What is Steem Engine? After a while, you realise it's fairly easy, but that's like anything, right? It's easy when you know how! This post will walk you through claiming and staking your tokens so that you can earn LOTUS and help others earn this great social coin for the Natural Medicine community!
Firstly, you want to make sure your tokens are 'claimed'. That's easy to do on the NaturalMedicine.io front end, but you can do it on Palnet or Creative.xyz too. It doesn't really matter, but if you're going to power up (stake) it's easier if you are using NaturalMedicine.io. I have this book marked on my browser and saved on the front screen of my phone for easy access. All you need to do is go to your wallet and click 'ALL IN ONE CLAIM'. That will 'claim' any tokens so you can then power up.
The highlighted green tokens are the ones that I have been airdropped or that I have earnt. The first number is the number I have yet to power up. The second number is the amount I have powered up.
What you need to do is move your LOTUS balance to LOTUS POWER. Unless you have staked it, you can't earn rewards through curating. It's a good idea to 'lotus up' at least once a week so your upvotes can support good natural health content.
All you need to do is click the little down arrow to get the drop down list, and click 'STAKE'.
This will then take you to this screen. If you just click on the highlighted green number (in my case, zero, as I've already powered up).
You will then be asked to confirm your transaction - in my case, I'm using KeyChain on my browser, and my keys are stored in there. This makes it a very quick and easy process!
