Staking is an alternative mining method and is one of the best passive income solutions in the crypto market. It provides a stable income and is also an extremely simple tool. In short, you need to buy a coin, block it in your wallet, and receive profit as a percentage. The profitability can vary depending on the platform.

Cryptocurrency staking has some major benefits:

🔹 It’s cheap. If PoW you need to buy expensive equipment and pay for electricity, PoS requires minimal computing power. A regular old laptop or mobile wallet on your smartphone is enough for staking.

🔹 It’s safe. PoS is much more resilient to 51% attack, as you would need to buy 51% of the coins to take over the network, but such an attack is economically disadvantageous.

🔹 Staking implies asset growth. Indeed, it would be best if you staked more coins to make big profits. In addition to profit from staking, the value of the coin itself is likely to grow as well.

🔹 It’s simple. There is no need to have specific knowledge. You only need to buy coins on the exchange and delegate (put) them into staking in your wallet. Then the system calculates the reward on its own.

Staking Drawbacks

🔹 However, staking also has some disadvantages. Of course, the concept of receiving rewards only for storing cryptocurrency looks quite attractive, but, unfortunately, one should not expect significant profits. In most cases, staking gives lower rewards than regular block rewards issued by the network.

🔹 The risk of centralization is very high when the bulk of assets are in large players’ hands. Also, because users strive to keep coins in their accounts as long as possible to maximize possible profits, there is a high risk of a decrease in the cryptocurrency turnover in general.

🔹 The staking mechanism also involves the withdrawal of an asset from circulation, blocking funds in the wallet. This means that the user cannot use coins until the end of the staking period. That is, his funds are illiquid.
