The transition from Proof of Work to Proof of Stake marks the end of Ethereum mining, as we have known it so far. Transaction confirmation will work in a new way. By sending coins to a special smart contract, you can stack them, help with the operation of the network and get rewards for it in the form of Ethereum. The Ethereum network requires a deposit of at least 32 ETH. Only then can he start rewarding a particular wallet. What if we want to invest only a fraction of that amount? This is where they came up with the cryptobours solution and created staking pools. Investors will deposit small investments in the pool, which the stock exchange will collect and place in a smart contract. Subsequently, it redistributes the profit proportionally among investors.
