Staking on Gemini: What and Why?
Staking is the process through which a blockchain network user ’stakes‘ or locks their cryptocurrency on a network as part of the consensus mechanism, thus ensuring the security and functionality of the chain. Staking is an essential feature of proof of stake (PoS) protocols.
Staking can be complicated because it typically takes place on a decentralized platform, and requires technical skills to manage your crypto wallet, validate blocks, and claim rewards… Gemini Staking simplifies the process by allowing customers a way to generate crypto rewards from a decentralized system on a secure and regulated platform.
It’s the best of both worlds: the benefit of decentralization with the power of Gemini.
