Part III — How to Stake for Basic Mining
Login to Staking Account: https://device-bsc.deeper.network/login
-By staking 1,000 $DPR, a user’s device will be placed onto the Deeper Chain and start with a credit score of “0”. The user will then need to grow their credit score to 100 to start earning $DPR rewards; No rewards will be earned meanwhile. The user also has the option to stake more $DPR in order to increase their credit score and earn higher rewards. See Deeper Network’s Basic Mining Rules & Rewards for more details.
-Please click the “Choose a Plan” button to begin staking.
-Click the “Only Stake 1000 DPR” button to place your device onto the Deeper Chain first. However, if you want to stake a higher credit tier, do not click “Only Stake 1000 DPR” but instead the green “Stake” button.
Note: Please make sure the BEP20 wallet address you connect to is the same BEP20 wallet address you used during basic mining registration. If these don’t match, basic mining staking will not be successful.
-Click “Stake” to begin the process of placing your device onto the Deeper Chain.
-Click “OK” to authorize your wallet.
-Confirm transaction and gas fee in order to transfer DPR from your BEP20 address to the BEP20 staking wallet address you used during basic mining registration.
-Then complete the staking process by clicking the “Confirm” button again.
-You will see the following confirmation once your 1,000 $DPR is staked:
-You can double check by seeing that your 1,000 $DPR is staked in the window below:
-Be sure to update your firmware to the most recent firmware version.
-Reboot your Deeper Connect device if you don’t see the “DPR” tab on the left side menu of your AtomOS dashboard.
-Once you see the DPR tab, this means your device is now on the Deeper Chain with a credit score of “0”. Next, let’s see how you can increase your stake to reach a higher credit tier.
Increase your credit score by staking more $DPR:
-Users can max out their credit score to 800 by staking 100,000 $DPR. Please refer to the Basic Mining Rules and Rewards to see $DPR staking amounts with their corresponding rewards.
-Choose an upgrade plan by selecting the credit tier you’d like to stake in.
-After selecting your credit tier, please click “Stake”.
- Connect your BEP20 wallet by clicking the “Connect” button. Please make sure the BEP20 wallet address you connect to is the same as the BEP20 wallet address you registered with during the basic mining registration process.
-Click the “Stake” button after confirming the wallet addresses match and the one you used for the registration process.
-“Confirm” transaction and gas fee in order to transfer DPR from your BEP20 address to the BEP20 staking wallet address you used during basic mining registration.

-You can confirm your staked amount and credit score by checking the confirm information page:
Binding your Deeper Chain Wallet to your device to receive mining rewards:
-Go to the Mining tab on your AtomOS dashboard. If the Mining tab is not showing on the left-hand menu, please reboot your Deeper Connect device.
-Once the Mining tab is showing on the left-hand menu, click Mining→ Wallet → Wallet Management to access the wallet.
-On this page, you can bind the previously generated Deeper Chain wallet by using the 12-word mnemonic phrase or the private key. Please choose a way to bind your Deeper Chain Wallet below:
To import the wallet using a 12-word mnemonic phrase:
• Click the “Bind Wallet mnemonic” button. The mnemonic phrase input box will pop up.
• Enter your 12-word seed phrase for your Deeper Chain wallet in order (top left to bottom right) Double Check that you have input the correct seed phrase and click the “OK” button to bind the Deeper Chain wallet you generated during the staking process.
To import the wallet with a private key:
It is recommended to save your private key back onto your computer so that it is easily accessible before proceeding. Once you are finished binding your wallet, save your private key back onto a USB device so that it’s no longer online and safe.
• Click the “Download private key” button. The private key input box will then pop up. Navigate to the directory where you saved your private key. Once confirmed, click the “Upload private key” button. Once the upload is finished, click “OK” to confirm.
Check that the bound Deeper Chain wallet address on AtomOS is the same as the Deeper Chain wallet address you generated during the basic mining staking process.
Lastly, click the “Wallet Balance” tab to double check that your credit score shown matches what you staked. If it matches, congratulations, you have completed the basic mining staking and ready to receive $DPR mining rewards! Please be sure to keep your device connected to the internet and share bandwidth with the network.
