Profile Page Overview:
Your updated profile page gives you an overview of your Weekly Rewards and your current amount of staked SPN.
1) Weekly Rewards:
Tokens earned (22/275): This number corresponds to the total number of tokens that have been earned for the current week. In this example, they correspond to 1 Post and 1 Upvote. 22 SPN tokens have been earned out for those two actions out of a maximum of 275 SPN for this specific week.
2) SPN Tokens:
The updated profile page also you the following.:
- Total number of Staked SPN you currently have. In the example above, it shows 200 SPN have been staked.
- Total number of SPN currently available to withdraw. In the example above, 3.909439 SPN is available for withdrawal.
You can also request to withdraw your available SPN tokens from this dashboard.
3) Staking Tiers:
Staking Tiers correspond to an estimated amount of SPN needed to enter the next tier. Tier Thresholds update daily therefore, there is no guarantee that staking a specific number of tokens will automatically place you in the next tier.
For the example below using the 200 SPN currently being staked, it shows that you are currently at Tier 6. The progress bar at the top shows how much SPN will be needed to reach Tier 5.
