Step 1: Navigate to the pSTAKE ATOM app.

Navigate to and connect your wallet to the platform interface (switch the network if prompted). Accept the Terms & Conditions before starting.

Step 2: Stake your ATOM.

You’ll now be directed to the ATOM staking page, where the “Stake” tab will appear by default. On the page, the ATOM section displays your available ATOM balance in your Cosmos wallet address.

Enter the amount of ATOM you want to liquid-stake, click “Liquid Stake” at the bottom, then confirm the transaction in your wallet.

Step 3: Complete IBC Transactions.

Next, you’ll need to execute two separate transactions. The first transfers ATOM from Cosmos Hub to the Persistence Core-1 chain via IBC, and the second transaction liquid-stakes the transferred ATOM.

Your wallet will open and prompt you to approve both transactions, one by one. 

Step 4: Mint stkATOM.

After the transactions confirm, the pSTAKE protocol will issue stkATOM into your wallet. Your current balance will be visible on the left-hand side of the page. 

Congratulations – you’ve now successfully liquid-staked your ATOM on pSTAKE! Staking rewards will now be automatically compounded, generating additional yields.
