Solana among best crypto assets for staking

Crypto staking platforms are crypto exchanges, brokers, or apps that allow users to earn rewards on their crypto assets by making it possible for them to lock the tokens in wallets or staking pools for a reward that comes after a set period.

The staking process allows proof-of-stake blockchains to use staked coins to support and secure the network – which is different from the mining process of proof-of-work blockchains like Bitcoin.

Solana is the third-largest crypto asset by staking market cap, behind only Ethereum and Cardano. However, according to the latest on-chain data for staking, the Solana network boasts the largest market share when it comes to staking reward ratio.

Staking ratio refers to the percentage count of tokens eligible for staking that are being staked, and Solana’s ratio is currently at over 71%.

In comparison, Ethereum, which transitioned to a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism in September 2022 via the Merge, only has staked ETH at 15.64%. Ethereum staking was introduced in December 2020 with the Beacon Chain genesis.

Cardano and Cosmos have about 67% of tokens eligible for staking.
