WHY STAKING YOUR CRO

Cronos is a blockchain network that integrates with both Ethereum and Cosmos ecosystems and supports DeFi, NFTs, and metaverse. It aims to expand the Web3 community by enabling developers to easily transfer apps and crypto assets from other chains at low cost, high speed, and with fast confirmation.
Cronos is powered by Ethermint, allowing for the smooth migration of apps and contracts from Ethereum and EVM-compatible chains. CRO is Cronos's primary currency, which is the native token of the decentralized, open-source, and energy-efficient Crypto.org Chain.
Cronos was designed with IBC protocol, enabling interoperability with Crypto.org Chain and other IBC-enabled chains like Cosmos Hub and Terra in a decentralized manner, while providing fast and low-cost transactions.
