  • Parameter tokenIds: List of token-Ids to stake.


function withdraw(uint256[] calldata tokenIds) external;
  • Un-stake and withdraw NFTs from the contract.
  • Parameter tokenIds: List of token-Ids to withdraw.


function claimRewards() external;
  • Claim accumulated rewards. This claim method allows for a pull mechanism where users must initiate claiming of rewards.


function getStakeInfo(address staker) external view returns (uint256 tokensStaked, uint256 rewards);

  • Parameter staker: Account address of staker.


function setRewardsPerUnitTime(uint256 rewardsPerUnitTime) external;
  • Allows an authorized account to set rewards per unit of time. Interpreted as x rewards per second/per day/etc based on time-unit.
