What Is DeFi Staking?
DeFi staking involves users locking up their crypto holdings in a fashion similar to fixed deposits as termed in the traditional banking system. The catch behind the lock-up is earning more tokens as interest from the specific staking pool availed on the platform. Binance exchange operates stoke pools for various coins, with each having its own interest rate or APR percentage.
When staking, the user chooses how long they want to lock up their holdings. After that, they have no direct access to the funds until the said period is over. Meanwhile, the staking rewards are remitted to their spot account on a daily basis.
