Ethereum staking through Ledger

Possibilities to grow your ETH

Staking is the process of holding funds in a crypto wallet to support the operations of a blockchain network. In return, holders are rewarded for their contribution.

Ethereum is a programmable blockchain that gives you access to various decentralized finance services, games and applications through smart contracts. Ether (ETH) is the native token that fuels all transactions within these applications.

To improve the blockchain’s scalability and security, Ethereum is shifting from Proof-of-Work (PoW) to Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism. With Ethereum 2.0, validators will be selected at random and rewarded for securing the network.
