Staking percentages?

New member here! Got the node, love the project, want to be involved. Help out a new guy here and point me where is best for LTX and DAG stuff here. Anyway, question. I will have the soft node running every month. Will I be able to participate in staking of any kind at the same time? or do I have to leave 250k dag for the node and anything above that I can use within the ecosystem for earning?
