With crypto staking, you get a small passive income from crypto, without selling your coins for it.
You can compare it to putting money in a high-interest savings account. When you put money in a savings account, the bank takes that money and lends it to others. In exchange for putting that money with the bank, you receive a portion of the interest earned from the lending.
Similarly, with crypto staking, you stake your coins to participate in running the blockchain. In return, you earn a reward, calculated in percentage returns. These returns are often a lot higher than the interest rates offered by banks.
Staking is also a way to support the blockchain of the cryptocurrency you are investing in. These cryptocurrencies rely on staking holders to verify transactions and keep everything running smoothly.
