Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to apply for my balance adjustment every month?

Yes. The balance adjustment period resets every 30 days, 2 hours and 13 minutes. Once this amount of time expires, repeat these steps to receive the next balance adjustment.

Why do I have to enroll every month?

The idea of this feature is to reward frequent users of the network. This incentive is designed to encourage people to participate more frequently.

Does this xApp work for XRP as well?

No, the Balance Adjustment is for the Xahau network only. The XRP Ledger does not have a feature like this.

If I have more XAH tokens do I get a higher payout?

No. The adjustment rate is the same regardless of the balance of XAH you have in your account. If you have 1 XAH or a million XAH, you still receive 4% per annum.

Is this like staking on other networks?

Sort of.

Generally, there are two types of staking in the blockchain space.

1) Crypto exchanges will allow you to lock up your tokens with them and pay you rewards for doing this.

2) Proof of Stake networks (Ethereum 2.0, Cardano, Tezos, etc.) allow you to lock up your tokens

On the Xahau network, you don't have to lock up your XAH. You can use them anytime, however, the XAH tokens have to be in your account for the entire period.

How do I see the history of my claims?

At the top left hand corner of the Balance Adjustment xApp is a History button. If you press it, you should see a history of your balance adjustment claims. Here's an example:

When I signed the transaction to Opt-in, I had to pay a network fee. Is this normal?

Yes. The Xahau network charges fees to submit a transaction to the network. (Although, the fees are so low, transactions are basically free.) The history screen shows the Fee paid to Opt-in is returned in the balance adjustment total.
