Staking in the context of cryptocurrency is the process of holding funds in a digital wallet to support the operations of a blockchain network. Essentially, it involves locking cryptocurrencies to receive rewards. In many proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchains, staking contributes to network security and the validation of transactions. Users participate in staking as a way to earn passive income, as they are rewarded with additional cryptocurrency for their contributions to the network's stability and integrity.
