Set Up Your Lumen Inflation

To join the Lumenaut Community Pool, vote for their inflation destination address:


You cannot earn inflation on an exchange (and you should not use exchanges as wallets). Use a Ledger Nano S or create a "paper wallet" to store your lumens first.

Step 1

Visit the Transaction Builder in the Stellar Laboratory - a tool for interacting with the Stellar network:

Make sure you have selected “Public” at the top right of the page.

Step 2

Paste your account public key in the “Source Account” text field.

After you paste your public key, a blue button will appear that says “Fetch next sequence number for account starting with…”. Click it to populate the text field with your next transaction number.

Step 3

Skip down to the “Operation Type” section and select "Set Options". Do NOT select “Inflation”.

Paste in the Inflation Destination Address:

lumenaut inflation destination


Step 4

Skip the rest of the inputs and click the button at the bottom left of the page that says “Sign in Transaction Signer”.

Step 5

On the next page, scroll to the bottom and either paste in your private key in the text area next to “Add Signer” or sign in with your Ledger Wallet.

If you are using your Ledger Wallet, you will need to confirm the transaction on your hardware device.

Step 6

After signing the transaction, scroll down and click the 'Submit to Post Transaction endpoint'.

Step 7

After submitting your operation to the transaction endpoint, you will be taken to a new page that summarizes your transaction.

Press the "Submit" button - this will tell the Stellar network that you have voted for the inflation destination address!

good job!

First Inflation Payment

You should receive your next inflation payment this Monday or Tuesday or next, depending on when you started voting. Note: did not create the Lumenaut Community Pool. We advocate for it.
