Staking vs Mining Cryptocurrencies

By Teodor | Reitis DeFi Token XREI | 13 May 2020

Staking your digital assets is the mining of the future. 


Bitcoin, Litecoin and others started with Proof of Work (PoW) algorithm and the Mining process which creates new coins and then releases them into the blockchain (the public ledger).

But Mining requires technical knowledge and computational power in order to solve the algorithmic puzzles involved in blockchain networks.


Using the Proof of Stake (PoS) algorithm,  staking involves the purchase of cryptocurrencies and holding them in a wallet for a particular period of time, similar  to a deposit in a bank which rewards you with a defined interest at the end of the period, as stipulated in the contract.

In the same way, Proof of Stake rewards you with additional coins or tokens. By holding cryptocurrency in your wallet, you are rewarded for supporting the network. Therefore, your cryptos will increase in number depending on how long you hold them in the staking wallet.


The reward rates are actually computed based on the duration or maturity period selected to HODL the tokens in the wallet.

Best staking wallets I know until today 14.05.2020. I use some of them and am pleased to say that I have a good experience.

- You do not spend money in buying expensive machines, such as ASICS or high-end GPUs as in case of mining coins.

- Staking uses little resources when compared to mining coins, which means much less electricity consumption.

- Instead of buying the hardware for mining, you can purchase cryptocurrencies and lock them into a staking wallet, that will lead to value growth.

- The amount of token grows as the rewards increase and also as prices escalate so that your wallet value goes up.

- Given the HODL of the cryptos/tokens is incentivized to keep them rather than selling them, there will be stability in the price of cryptocurrencies on the market.

- Staking is very simple and doesn’t require the technical know-how în order to participate.


Once you stake a cryptocurrency or a token, you automatically lock it for a particular period of time so you cannot sell it. 


PoS strategy is saving the money you would have to spend on mining hardware or buying high-stake crypto-coins from a coin exchange, and committing them to your personal wallet, where you can watch their balance grow.
