Kraken announced Cardano staking
Back on May 4th, Kraken announced staking for Cardano (ADA) went live on May 4 at approximately 21:00 UTC.
Kraken listed ADA for trading in September 2018. By staking ADA through Kraken’s market-leading staking service you’ll take your place among the decentralized community of supporters helping to secure the Cardano network.
Kraken writes that “Instead of needing to purchase special equipment to compete for newly minted network tokens, users are instead able to stake their funds in Kraken’s stake pool.”
The blog post continued and notes that “By staking their funds on the blockchain, users earn the ability to be selected to propose new transaction blocks to the network and earn rewards. Staking may also empower users with other responsibilities, including the ability to vote on proposed changes to network policies or code.”
We suggest that you check out the complete post in order to learn more details about ADA staking.
