What is Staking? Is Staking Profitable?
Locking cryptocurrencies to the system and gaining profit is called “staking” or “staking”. The staking method is frequently used in networks where the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus algorithm is applied. Network participants can earn money by promising to keep their cryptocurrency in their wallet for a set period of time. Coins locked in the system cannot be transferred for the specified period and cannot be used in another transaction.
