What Is Staking?

Staking is central to Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanisms, whereby users pledge crypto to securely validate transactions on a blockchain network. Once validated, users who have staked their crypto receive tokens as a reward.

There are challenges associated with staking, including selecting or running your own validator node and protecting your private keys to ensure the validators are always connected to the network. Small mistakes can lead to network-imposed penalties and the loss of staked tokens.

Staking Crypto on Gemini

At Gemini, we simplify and secure the staking process, allowing you to stake your assets with more confidence in just a few steps. And, we protect your staked assets by reimbursing you for penalties imposed by validators on your staked tokens.
