Use dApps

To interact with dApps, you'll need a wallet with some tokens. If you don't have a wallet, check out our wallet section to choose one that suits your needs. If you don't have any HEART tokens, you can obtain them by following the On-ramp to guides.

Queries and Transactions

After setting up your wallet, you can read information from dApps on without paying any transaction fees. dApps can display blockchain information, such as your asset balances, for free.

To use dApps, you'll need to sign transactions with your wallet and pay a small network fee. Transactions are blockchain transfers of value, such as sending tokens to another account, changing game character ownership, or accepting loan terms.

To use a dApp on, follow these steps:

  1. Connect your wallet to the network.
  2. Visit a dApp and submit a transaction (e.g. to stake/unstake your tokens).
  3. Sign and broadcast the transaction on your wallet by paying the network fee with gas.
  4. Wait for the transaction to be confirmed and successful.
  5. View the changes from your transaction in the dApp. You can also use a block explorer to view all transactions in the network, including yours.


Staking is crucial to maintaining the decentralized and safe nature of the network. The Proof-of-Stake technology powers the network, incentivizing a group of community members to keep it running and decentralized. As they have to monitor and update the software that powers the network, these community members, known as validators, are typically very technical individuals. Validators are in charge of validating transactions in a block. The fact that validators receive a commission on your stake encourages them to remain online.

Delegating your HEART tokens to a validator will put them at stake and contribute to the network's security. You will receive daily interest from this in the form of new HEART tokens (also known as staking rewards). You cannot transfer or utilize your staked tokens in other dApps while they are staked. You are always able to revoke the delegation of your tokens. This will enable you to resume utilizing your tokens following a protocol-defined unbonding period (in our case, two weeks).

On the Keplr Wallet dApp, you can select validators from a list to stake your tokens with. We advise choose a trustworthy validator who can guarantee continued availability and who does not have a significant voting advantage (for example, is not in the top 20). Your stake may be slashed if a validator is down for an extended period of time or engages in harmful behavior. Additionally, distributing to validators with fewer voting rights maintains the network's decentralized nature. By redelegating your tokens, you can change validators without removing them from their original delegation.


For making adjustments to the network protocol, such as modifying chain parameters (such as the unbonding period for staking), spending money from the community pool (for example, to pay for teams to build on, or updating the software that is managed by validators, has an on-chain governance mechanism.

Through code updates, developers suggest modifications, and the community then votes on whether to accept or reject the suggestion. Any participant who has staked HEART tokens is eligible to vote on proposals. The number of staked tokens determines the weight of each vote.

Since anybody can engage in governance, the network's ownership, standards, and culture are dispersed throughout the community. After you have staked your tokens, visit the Keplr Wallet dApp to begin voting on proposed changes to the ecosystem's governance.
