What is NYCCoin (NYC)? 

NYCCoin is a CityCoin, a new community project that supports cities and their treasuries. CityCoins are powered by the Stacks Protocol, an open-source network of decentralized apps and smart contracts built on Bitcoin. With CityCoins, you can mine, program, hold, and stack them to earn Stacks and Bitcoin.


How does NYCCoin stacking work?

In the decentralized finance (DeFi) lingo, “staking” is the process of locking tokens to secure their underlying protocol. In exchange, those who stake earn rewards. A similar process called “stacking” (notice the change in spelling 😃) exists on the Stacks blockchain. Beyond the complicated mechanics of blockchain security validation, stacking is easy enough to grasp: You can put your crypto to work and earn rewards while it sits.

Being directly integrated with the protocols allows us to offer access to the best decentralized finance (DeFi) products and staking offers. For instance, we were early believers in Stacks and are the only exchange to have integrated with its blockchain. That’s why we’re now the only exchange to offer access to NYCCoin since it’s built on top of Stacks – MiamiCoin too. We’ve made DeFi super simple: on Earn you can go from cash to staking in just a few clicks.

Here’s the TL;DR about stacking NYC on Okcoin:

  • No fees. Contrary to most competitors, there are no fees on Earn. You get to keep 100% of the stacking rewards.
  • Very low minimum amount. The minimum stacking amount is 50 NYC ($XX at the time of launch) and, there’s no maximum stacking amount. 
  • Flexibility. You can choose between stacking your NYC for one cycle (approximately 2 weeks) or 12 cycles (approximately 24 weeks).
  • Bi-weekly payouts. Rewards are paid every two weeks in STX, which can then be stacked again to earn daily stacking rewards in bitcoin. Learn more

NYCCoin stacking FAQ

When are NYC stacking rewards paid?

We deliver the rewards to your Okcoin account as soon as we receive them, at the end of each stacking cycle (approximately 2 weeks).

How is the potential APY estimated? And how can they change going forward?

We’ve used the rewards generated in the last NYC stacking cycle to estimate the next cycle’s potential APY. The prices of NYC and STX, and the amount of generated rewards are the largest drivers of the resulting APY. 

When can I withdraw my stacked NYC?

To help secure the network, NYC tokens need to be stacked for the duration of an entire cycle. The stacked tokens can only be withdrawn at the end of the cycle, not before.

What are the different stacking cycle lengths?

You can stack for either 1 cycle (approximately 2 weeks) or 12 cycles (approximately 24 weeks) or any combination of the two options (start with 1 cycle and then try a 12 cycle period).

What are the benefits of stacking for 12 cycles instead of 1?

If you stack NYC for 1 cycle, you’ll be unable to participate in consecutive stacking cycles, meaning you’ll have to skip one stacking cycle before participating again. If you want to earn rewards continuously throughout a longer period, consider stacking for 12 cycles (approximately 24 weeks).
