# ▶️Staking Rewards Calculation

How are staking rewards calculated on the Quicksilver protocol?

Rewards are auto-compounded by the protocol. The way rewards work is that the ratio between the asset:qAsset is not 1:1, and the redemption rate increases each epoch, meaning that the qAsset becomes worth * more* Asset over time as the value of rewards are restaked.

Use this formula to calculate rewards earnings:

The current redemption rate can always be found here: https://lcd.quicksilver.zone/quicksilver/interchainstaking/v1/zones

**For Example:**

You staked 10000 STARS on day 1, when the redemption rate was 1.0, and received 10000 qSTARS.

The redemption rate of the current epoch is 1.017675384751828836.

You have earned STARS = ((10000/1.00)*1.017675384751828836)-10000, or 176 STARS.

Please note that **the qAsset amount in your wallet does not change after you deposit;** for example, if you receive 10000 qSTARS when you deposit, your wallet will continue to show 10000 qSTARS, even as your qSTARS become *more valuable over time*.
