Will my staking emissions rewards be automatically staked?


At the end of every epoch, your emissions rewards for that epoch are automatically added to the staked pool within the relevant validator component.  

This means that any Liquid Stake Units (LSUs) that you hold will, after each epoch, have a slightly larger pool of XRD that they can claim.

Your rewards, therefore, compound approximately every 5 minutes (the approximate length of an epoch).

If you prefer to use your new XRD emissions for something other than staking to the same node, you simply need to unstake the quantity you want to use.
