The staking opportunity
Staking in Proof-of-Stake (PoS) blockchains entails locking native tokens, which in turn grants you the right to contribute to the network's security as a validator. Validators play a crucial role in reviewing transactions on the blockchain and bundling them together into new blocks. As compensation, validators earn rewards for those stakers who delegate their digital assets.
With the rewards, token holders can grow their digital asset holdings while participating in network security and governance.
Staking is considered a natural way to earn rewards in the crypto space as it derives value from the inflation of the blockchain's native asset and transaction fees, where the protocol is the counterparty.
Ethereum is the largest PoS blockchain by market cap and developer activity. However, only about 22%* of the ETH supply is currently staked, contrasting with 50-80% staking ratios on other PoS blockchains. This shows it’s only just the beginning for Ethereum staking.
Coinmerce is the largest Dutch crypto broker that focuses entirely on usability and simplicity to offer its users a safe, educational, simple and enjoyable experience.
Kiln is the leading enterprise-grade staking platform, enabling institutional customers to stake assets, and to whitelabel staking functionality into their offering. Kiln runs validators on all major PoS blockchains, with over $2.2 billion crypto assets being programmatically staked, and running over 3% of the Ethereum network on a multi-cloud, multi-region infrastructure. Kiln also provides a validator-agnostic suite of products for fully automated deployment of validators, and reporting and commission management, enabling custodians, wallets and exchanges to streamline staking operations across providers. Kiln is also SOC2 Type 2 certified.
