## How do I calculate the actual amount that I would like to stake a player?

**How do you calculate the total purchase amount when staking the action of a player?**

- First, you would have to calculate the total buy-in as follows:

Buy-in + Bounty (if applicable) = Total Buy-in

- Then you would input the total buy-in into the following formula as follows:

(Total Buy-in / 100) * Markup * Share % = Total Purchase Amount

- For example,

Total Buy-in = $25

Markup = 1.4

Let's say you bought 10% out of 45% of a particular player's shares.

Then the calculation will be as follows:

Total Purchase Amount = (25 / 100) * 1.4 * 10 = $3.50
