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 Terra Classic (LUNC)?

Terra Classic (LUNC) is the rebranded version of the original Terra blockchain protocol, after the launch of a new chain in May 2022, named Terra (LUNA). Terra is known for using fiat-pegged stablecoins for stable global payments. Work on it began in 2018 and it officially launched in 2019, offering stablecoins linked to various fiat currencies. Post-rebranding, the original Terra token (LUNA) became LUNA Classic (LUNC), and all network stablecoins were renamed to Terra Classic stablecoins. LUNC holders participate in the network's unique governance model and can stake their tokens to secure the network and earn rewards.
