The future-proof blockchain enabling long-term solutions to real-world challenges. Casper is a powerful, public smart contract platform empowering creators, communities, and businesses to connect with integrity and trust.
Casper is a proof-of-stake blockchain network optimised for enterprise and developer adoption. The Casper Network is the first live blockchain built off the Correct-by-Construction (CBC) Casper specification, allowing the network to create sustainable new markets and unlock value by tokenising nearly any asset without compromising performance or security. Activity on Casper is governed by CSPR, the network’s native token, through the soon-to-be-launched governance portal. Casper launched its mainnet on March 31st, 2021.
“Casper Labs is a Swiss-based AG that started working on the Casper blockchain codebase in October 2018 and facilitated the Casper Testnet throughout 2020 and 2021 until the mainnet launch. While the engineers at Casper Labs contribute new features to the codebase for the Casper blockchain, Casper Labs is also a fully staffed enterprise consultancy business providing support and services for its enterprise clients building on Casper.”
“The Casper Association is the not-for-profit, Switzerland-domiciled organisation responsible for overseeing the network and supporting its organic evolution and continued decentralisation. The Association membership comprises the independent validators which run nodes on the Casper Network.”

Frequently Asked Questions
When can I unstake? How long does unstaking take?
You can unstake at any time. After you unstaked, it takes 7-8 ERAs or 14-16 hours for your CSPR to return to your liquid balance, after which you can freely do with it as you please.
Are my CSPR tokens safe while being staked?
Staking with validators is safe. Should in the worst case, the validator go offline or become inactive, you won’t receive rewards anymore. In this case, you can simply unstake and restake with a different validator. You always have complete control over your tokens.
How much commission do you charge? How many rewards do I get?
We charge a 3% commission for our Casper node. This means that for every 100 CSPR in staking rewards, we get 3 CSPR, and you, as a delegator, receive 97 CSPR.
When do I receive my staking rewards?
When you first start staking, it takes 4-5 hours for your first rewards to show up. Staking rewards are paid every ~2 hours. You can follow your staking rewards on cspr.live on your account overview, under the Staking Rewards tab.
What if I accidentally transferred my CSPR to your node address instead of delegate?
Please contact us through email (email@example.com), or join our Telegram group and we’ll make sure we send the CSPR back to the original address.
