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 Tezos (XTZ)?

Tezos (XTZ) is a blockchain platform for smart contracts and decentralized applications, akin to Ethereum. However, Tezos sets itself apart with its on-chain governance model, which allows network upgrades without needing hard forks. The Tezos network uses its native token XTZ for transaction processing and governance voting. Tezos also supports formal verification, a technique used to improve the security and correctness of code. XTZ holders participate in the network's unique governance model and can stake their tokens to secure the network and earn rewards.
