How To Stake $MOL & $LAVA Directly Through Etherscan

The following article is from Molten community member ALTCoin. They were kind enough to create a helpful guide on how to stake directly through Etherscan instead of the web UI. As of right now, we are working to get our site back up from the DDOS attack, and have created a temporary staking UI available here.

This information is extremely useful to know as a DeFi trader/investor because it allows you to access your tokens even when the UI is down.

Recently, our website has been subject to extortionist DDOS attacks, rendering many users from being unable to access the staking page due to temporary outages in service.

While we work to implement mitigation measures, we want to reassure everyone that your funds are safe and secure in our pool contracts which are stored on the Ethereum Blockchain.

Even if our staking page is unavailable, you can interact directly with our contracts using Etherscan to approve, stake, claim and unstake.

Disclaimer: Mistakes made when interacting with contracts directly can be costly as blockchain transactions are irreversible. If you are not fully comfortable with the technical instructions below, it is HIGHLY recommended to wait for the UI to be back online. The Molten team is not liable for any loss of funds due to individual mistakes.
