How does one go about staking and unstaking their EOS? What if a user has more than one dApp - is it necessary to stake on a dApp basis? And if that’s true, resources used are computed on a dApp basis rather than for a high level account as a whole?

1 Answer 1


Technically users and dApps are synonymous as far a resource allocation is concerned, similar to Ethereum, where it doesn't matter if the address is a contract or a person, as long as it pays for it's gas.

In this video Dan explains the process for resource allocation.


Essentially, bandwidth and CPU are staked for 3 days using a staking contract that will be provided by block.one (for both smart contracts and users), and RAM is allocated and paid for in real-time (during this process either the sender or receiver can be charged for this).

  • Thanks. Viewed the video. I still wonder if you can have a hierarchy of accounts, and stake the high-level or, optionally, stake each individual (or both).

  • The beauty of this solution is any of the above is possible. Commented May 28, 2018 at 19:49
