Only by Staking can a Soulmate gain HYPE until they reach the Initiation stage at a certain period. Staking is the process of holding a Soulmate, usually kept on the site to start the process. Once removed, it is un-staked. It can be re-staked, but if you miss a day of staking, you miss potential HYPE that will never be gained again after our Initiation had passed at the prelude to our Anime Metaverse. Collectively, once we reached 3,000,000 HYPE, we entered Initiation and the rest is history.
