What is Cardano staking?

Last updated

Staking on Cardano is a form of validation of transactions on the blockchain network. When a person participates in staking, they contribute their computer resources to confirm transactions and ensure that the network is reliable. In exchange for participating in staking, participants receive rewards in the form of Ada, the currency unit of Cardano. It is important for decentralization that as many people as possible participate in the validation of the Cardano network.

Staking on Cardano is an important part of the network's security and reliability. Having many participants contributing computer resources makes it difficult for an individual or group to attack or manipulate the network.

To participate in staking on Cardano, you need a computer with a staking node running the Cardano network. You can also choose to delegate your Ada to others in a so-called staking pool. This way you can get a share of the staking rewards, even if you don't have enough computer resources to stake on your own. Norwegian Block Exchange (NBX) offers staking of Cardano and runs its own staking pool.

Staking on Cardano can be a profitable way to earn passive income, but it is important to remember that it also carries a certain level of risk. For example, the price of Ada can fluctuate, which can affect the size of staking rewards. It is therefore important to do thorough research and consider whether staking on Cardano is a solution that is right for you.
