What is staking?

Staking is the process of actively participating in transaction validation (similar to mining). Radix uses Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS), which means:

  • Network security is guaranteed by a community of token holders delegating their stake to nodes that are included in the validator set and are behaving correctly. A validator set is a grouping of validator nodes participating in consensus together.

  • To incentivize this form of security, token holders can delegate their tokens (or “stake”) to validator nodes to receive a portion of tokens newly created by the protocol. These token rewards are called “network emission”. More info can be found in the Radix Economics Whitepaper.
