Staking is one of the most requested features by the Bitpanda community - and it’s coming soon! Bitpanda Staking will give our investors the possibility to earn rewards on various crypto-assets. Stay tuned for updates and read on to discover what staking is really about.

Whether you’re a crypto newbie or a seasoned investor, you’ve probably heard the term ‘staking’ being thrown around and described as a fundamental feature in the future of cryptocurrency - so what’s staking all about?

What is staking?

In order to confirm that a Proof of Stake (PoS) blockchain is secure and decentralised, certain participants on that network commit or “stake” their crypto-assets to validate or to support the validation of transactions and ensure the system is working optimally. 

Staking provides an opportunity for these participants or “validators and delegators” to earn rewards by locking their coins into cryptocurrency wallets to verify network transactions on a PoS blockchain. This means holders of a select range of coins will be able to stake them directly on Bitpanda and potentially earn extra income. 

What are the main benefits of staking? 

You can earn more crypto

Staking can be a highly-profitable* way to earn interest on your crypto portfolio and provide a high yield extra income source. With Bitpanda, the process is simple, giving you the opportunity to let your portfolio work for you. 

It bolsters network security

Although the security of the PoS blockchain might not be at the top of your list, it’s vital for preserving a network’s effectiveness and the protection of its users, which also includes you. 

It’s greener than Proof of Work (PoW) crypto mining

Proof of Stake (PoS) blockchains are considered to be a better option for the environment, as staking rewards participants for verifying transactions based on their stake in the network - as opposed to PoW networks that reward the fastest miners who solve computationally-complex calculations, which ultimately use more energy.
