Trust Wallet allows you to store and manage your crypto and NFTs, buy, sell, and stake crypto to earn rewards, access dApps securely and much more—all in one place. In this guide, we’ll focus on the staking feature of the Trust Wallet extension and the range of new staking options available right within the Trust Wallet Browser Extension.
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 reciprocation for their staking commitment, participants can earn staking returns, somewhat like earning interest in a traditional banking system.
