What is staking?

SourceOriginal
#1
In the cryptoasset markets, staking refers to providing a digital currency or token as a stake in a PoS network (Tezos, Cosmos, Decred, etc.) to play a role in the integrity and security of a blockchain. In exchange for this service, stakers are rewarded in newly minted coins.
Therefore, from an investor’s point of view, “HODLing” and staking PoS coins is somewhat akin to investing in fixed income securities, such as bonds. Stakers are effectively earning interest on their holdings in the form of more of the digital asset they are staking.
