WELCOME TO LEAPFROG
Leapfrog is a leading Solana community validator that helps secure the network and produces blocks on the blockchain. We provide a secure, non-custodial platform on which to stake for both private and institutional investors.
We use state of the art hardware, set in our London datacenter. Our dedicated team, spanning the UK and South Africa, manages the day-to-day operations. With a commitment to sustainability and a modest fee structure, we're here for the long haul.
We also run TopValidators.app - a leaderboard showing the APY's and other metrics of all the validators that power Solana.

WHAT IS STAKING?
Staking is the process by which a SOL token holder assigns some or all of their tokens to a particular validator or validators, which helps increase those validators’ voting weight. Assigning your tokens to add to a validator’s stake-weight is known as “delegating” your tokens. Delegating your tokens to a validator does NOT give the validator ownership or control over your tokens. At all times, you still control all your staked tokens that you may have chosen to delegate.
For more information see our FAQ page.
Stake us easily from within your preferred wallet app.
It is easy to stake with your preferred validator from most wallet apps. Here are some good examples of simple wallet apps with guides.
Most wallets support the Ledger Nano series. These hardware wallets ensures your keys aren't on a system connected to the internet.
Our personal favourite is the Phantom Wallet combined with the Ledger Nano. This provides an easy way to manage your funds with added security. See this Guide on how to use your Ledger nano with Phantom or this Guide for connecting your Ledger nano to Solflare
We don't recommend leaving your funds on exchanges or apps that either take custody of your funds or take away your ability to choose a validator when staking.
We will never send NFTs to you. BEWARE of scams and anything asking you to connect your wallet.
