Staking

Staking is a process of participating in transaction validation (i.e. proof of stake system). A crypto coin keeper who has the minimum required balance of a specific digital coin is allowed to participate in validating transactions to earn staking rewards.

Staking is an alternative consensus mechanism that allows users to generally secure crypto networks with minimal energy consumption and setup. There are staking rules mandated by each cryptocurrency network to follow.
