What is Peanut?

Peanut is a decentralized staking platform based on the Steem blockchain.

What are the differences between Peanut and other staking platforms on Steem?

Similar to other staking platforms (delegation platforms) on Steem, delegators of SP (STEEM POWER) receive upvotes from the official community account (@nutbox.mine). At the same time, the delegators to the Peanut platform (operating on also receive the community token (PNUT).

Peanut is also a DeFi platform based on the Steem blockchain. You can convert STEEM and SBD into Tron-based equivalent assets TSTEEM and TSBD respectively at 1:1 in one click. The converted TSTEEM and TSBD can be traded on the decentralized exchange JustSwap on Tron. Peanut also supports the staking of PNUT-TRX liquidity pool token (PNUT-TRX LP) and TSP-TRX liquidity pool token on JustSwap for mining PNUT.

Peanut is a community-owned platform. Community members can submit proposals to raise suggestions for the community. Once the proposal is voted on, the proposer(s) can participate in community development, operation, promotion and other work according to the description of the proposal, and the proposer(s) will also receive PNUT rewards in accordance with the proposal.

What is the relationship between Peanut and Tron Blockchain?

Peanut's smart contract is built on the Tron blockchain. Through the Tron blockchain, Peanut provided the Steem community with the basic modules of smart contracts and DeFi, which can be used for a plethora of applications.

The risk of participating in Peanut?

The risk of participating in Peanut is that you need to invest in STEEM, convert it into STEEM POWER (SP), and delegate it to Peanut. Since there is no risk in delegating SP, the risk of participating in Peanut lies in the rise and fall of STEEM value.

What supports the value of PNUT?

The value of PNUT mainly derives from two aspects:

  • the buyback of PNUT by the peanut committee;
  • the profit from DApps on Steem incubated by peanut.dao after they start producing results;

In addition to the halving of PNUT at fixed time, the daily distribution volume is fixed within a certain period of time. Therefore, the more curatorial rewards peanut receives, the more significant its support for the price of PNUT, that is, the price of PNUT will increase with the increase of SP received by peanut;

The applications of PNUT?

PNUT will be involved in a wide range of applications of peanut. It is expected to:

  • Provide liquidity for PNUT/TRX and receive transaction fee rewards;
  • Holders of PNUT enjoy the right to vote for proposals;
  • Holders of PNUT indirectly have the voting rights under the peanut proposal voting system to participate in community governance;
  • Holders of PNUT can participate in various economic activities of the peanut collaboration platform, such as multiple rounds of ranking;
  • Enjoy the rights and interests of peanut;
  • Participate in voting to determine the DApps that peanut.dao invests in incubation.

How is the 10% of PNUT owned by peanut.dao allocated?

What is PNUT buyback?

What is Peanut Committee?

Peanut Committee is the transitional institution during the process of Peanut progressing towards completely decentralized governance, see this post for details:


TSP is an asset based on the Tron blockchain, which is a TRC20 Token, and 1 TSP is equivalent to 1 SP delegated to Peanut (@nutbox.mine). Holders of TSP can enjoy the same rights as delegating SP, that is, receive curation from PNUT and upvotes from Peanut (@nutbox.mine).

Community members can use 「 - Liquid Staking」 to convert STEEM to TSP at 1:1 any time. TSP can also be redeemed into STEEM at any time, and the redeemed STEEM will reach their Steem account within 33-40 days.

TSP can be traded on JustSwap,exchange link:

On TSP #1:

On TSP #2:


TSTEEM and TSBD are assets based on the Tron blockchain, which are TRC20 Tokens. Their values are equivalent to STEEM and SBD respectively on the Steem network at 1:1 , and the Peanut cross-chain conversion module guarantees the 「 - wallet - cross-chain transfer」.

After TSTEEM and TSBD cross-chained to Tron, decentralized exchanges and decentralized lending in the Tron ecosystem can be used, and liquidity mining can also be carried out, which greatly expands the efficiency of the use of Steem network assets.

TSBD decentralized exchange link:

LP Token

On JustSwap, you receive the corresponding LP Token by providing liquidity for a trading pair liquidity pool. For example, by depositing the TRX and PNUT of your account into the PNUT-TRX trading pair liquidity pool on JustSwap, you will get PNUT-TRX LP Token.

As the holder of PNUT-TRX LP Token, you will receive the transaction fees from others trading PNUT-TRX. At the same time, you can also stake LP Token in the corresponding mining pool at " - Liquidity Mining" to receive PNUT as reward.


JustSwap is a decentralized exchange in the Tron ecosystem. Trading pairs can be created for any TRC20 token and be traded here.
