Locked Staking (Nodes)
The aim of nodes is to create a strong incentive for long term holding of NAVA and several other coins through the use of a locked staked high earning pool. The pool requires users to spend 200 NAVA or 1 NSHARE to create a node that in turn delivers daily NAVA or NSHARE rewards back to the user at an estimated initial starting rate of 1.5-3% daily delivering passive yield in a token pegged to a stablecoin. This will reward long term holders with a higher yield than the single stake NAVA or NSHARE pool and in turn lock up a portion of the NAVA or NSHARE supply helping to reduce market sell pressure on NAVA and NSHARE.
  • 200 NAVA cost per NavaNode, 1 NSHARE cost per NshareNode,
  • Unlimited nodes per account
  • Up to 3% daily NAVA or NSHARE rewards paid (tapering figure), returns are based on node pool balance and are not guaranteed
  • Up to a max 500% ROI on each node (adjustable figure), max possible ROI is based on node pool balance and is not possible to guarantee
  • 10% of the node pool will be distributed to The NFT holders monthly (Including future node pools)
  • 5% of the node pool will be as a basic maintenance fee, it is used to maintain and develop more functions.

Disclaimer & Risks

Note that investing in DeFi is experimental and risky, there is no guaranteed return on any product or investment. By using Nava Finance, you agree that the Nava Finance team is not responsible for any financial losses from investing in Nava Finance nor do we promise any returns now or in the future. Nodes are highly experimental locked staking pools and the total amount of rewards that can be paid are determined by a number of factors including the number of nodes created, the TWAP expansion rates of the protocol and the performance of investments made by the treasury.

What is a node?

Users may be familiar with the concept of validator nodes which as the name suggest validate transactions on a blockchain, in most blockchain networks these validators are rewarded for their efforts with native tokens. Nava Nodes are not transaction validator nodes however they follow this concept of rewarding locked stakers with NAVA rewards for their efforts.
Users deposit NAVA to purchase a node which in turn deposits a portion of that into a reward pool that drips daily rewards back to all node holders thereby granting a passive income in return for locking up your NAVA. Our node operates in a similar manner to the many well known investment type node projects in existence such as Project x and Vapornodes.


Nodes often suffer from sustainability issues due to their tokens having no other purpose than simply as a reward token for selling, this too is an issue for algorithmic stable coin protocols. At Nava Finance adding strong utility to NAVA is something we have focused on so far through unique yielding opportunities with partner protocols and soon through our decentralized lending and borrowing platform. In order to ensure our Nava nodes are sustainable and achieve their intended outcome we take inspiration from EMP Money's successful implementation.


Much like in our base layer seigniorage protocol education and strategy play a large part in ensuring sustainability of the system. If the majority of participants operate in unison and follow the same strategy the system has a better chance at maintaining sustainability over the long run, essentially making the system a social experiment in game theory. We have produced a detailed strategy flowchart for users to follow based on the TWAP of the original peg token below and often remind participants of the current optimal strategy to follow for protocol health which in turn helps protect the longevity of your investment.

ROI Caps & reward rates

This includes implementing mechanisms such as a maximum cap on total ROI that is possible to receive from a single node (currently 500%) and tweaking of the daily drip rate to maintain a sweet spot of up to 3% so it remains above that available for single staking NAVA but not such that it reduces the benefit locked staking will have for the protocol. There is no limit to the number of nodes someone can own however the more you own the greater your daily yield back in NAVA. Please note that this maximum cap is not your guaranteed return from each node it is your maximum possible return from each node, it is not possible to guarantee a return in DeFi or investing.
