FAQ

Commitment Contracts (stakes)

How does staking work?

For any action, you can specify an amount that completion of that action is worth. Based on your goal and action criteria, we will calculate the number of times that action will need to be completed between now and the end of your goal. From this we calculate the total amount at stake. This total amount will be immediately deducted from your bank account.

 

How do I earn my money back?

Each time you report successful completion and progress towards your goal through your TODO list, you earn the specified amount back. If you complete all actions required during your goal period then you receive the full amount back.

 

When and how do I receive my money back?

At the end of your goal the amount you have earned back will be transferred back to the account we received it from within 5 working days.
