How will staking rewards work when Shelley mainnet rewards go live?

Does anyone know how the staking rewards on the mainnet will work when Shelley goes live? Do the rewards automatically get re-staked in the same pool or will they appear in your wallet and you have to stake it manually? I plan to keep staking for the long term to gain compounded interest.

hey @Smileymtl, welcome back! that’s a key question (confused by how it was implemented on the itn) that needs to be understood. you won’t need to do it manually. it has been covered in another post, and a cf member of staff has clarified and confirmed that this is indeed the case.

so this will be possible. :ok_hand:t5:


Thank you for the clarification, much appreciated
