What is staking?

Staking is a method of supporting a proof-of-stake (PoS) or a delegated proof-of-stake (dPoS) blockchain network by holding and "staking" a specific cryptocurrency. This activity contributes to various functions within the network such as transaction validation, upholding the network's security, and refreshing the blockchain. In return for their staking commitment, participants can earn staking returns, somewhat like earning interest in a traditional banking system.

What is Cronos (CRO)?

Cronos (CRO) is the native token of the Chain, a decentralized, open-source blockchain developed by the cryptocurrency platform. Launched in 2018, Cronos aims to disrupt traditional payment systems by enabling transactions between users and businesses to occur on the blockchain, offering increased transaction speeds and lower fees. The CRO token is used for transaction fees, staking, and participating in the network's DeFi activities. CRO holders participate in the network's unique governance model and can stake their tokens to secure the network and earn rewards.
