You can either become a solo staker which is less rewarding or you can join a staking pool to increase your staking reward. The more your staking the more your reward. As a pool staker, You can lease your waves coin to supernodes for a given period of time. The leasing period ranges from weekly to yearly basis.

To become a supernode, you need to have a minimum balance of 1000 waves while to lease your waves coin to the supernode, there is no minimum requirement.Here is how the staking process looks like;
