What is Staking?

Proof of stake
Proof of Stake

 Staking is an essential feature of proof of stake (PoS) protocols. Large PoS protocols including Ethereum, Polygon, Solana, and Polkadot allow users to stake their native tokens and accrue rewards.

Incentive for validators
Staking as an incentive for validators

Blockchain node operators must pledge their tokens, also known as staking, to a network in order to be selected as a block validator. As a reward for correctly adding valid blocks to the blockchain, node operators receive newly minted tokens as rewards, known as staking rewards.


Node operators who perform invalid functions (eg. adding a corrupted block to the blockchain) could lose a portion of their pledged tokens, a function known as slashing. Our staking validators are highly effective, and we guarantee to reimburse any losses (slashes) due to our validation process (but not for slashing that occurs for reasons outside our control). See the Gemini Staking Agreement for more details.

Why stake with Gemini?

Staking can be complicated because it typically takes place on a decentralized platform, and requires technical skills to manage your crypto wallet, validate blocks, and claim rewards. Gemini Staking simplifies the process for you and allows customers to generate staking rewards from a decentralized system on a secure and regulated platform. It’s the best of both worlds: the benefit of decentralization with the power of Gemini.
