What is Celestia?

Celestia is a pioneering modular data availability network, designed to address the challenges of scalability and accessibility in public blockchains. Instead of adhering to the traditional single-layered architecture employed by monolithic blockchain networks, Celestia employs a modular approach, compartmentalizing tasks into distinct layers.

With Celestia, the Consensus and Data Availability layers are distinct from the Execution Layer, allowing for enhanced efficiency and adaptability. This design ensures that applications benefit from Celestia's robust security features. Moreover, it facilitates the upgrade of applications without necessitating hard forks in the main chain.

A central feature of Celestia is its advanced Data Availability Layer, which introduces innovations like Data Availability Sampling (DAS) which ensures that transaction data is both accessible and verifiable.

This design not only elevates the scalability prospects for Web3 applications but also offers developers an avenue to customize their projects as per their needs.

TIA is Celestia networks’s native cryptocurrency with a hard-capped supply of one billion tokens.

What is Celestia staking?

Staking is a great way for long-term crypto investors to earn passive income on their Proof-of-Stake cryptocurrency assets (such as TIA) while taking part in securing the network.

Stakers, by delegating tokens to validators, give voting rights to these to validate transactions on the blockchain and propose new blocks. The more stake is attributed to a validator, the more it will be able to take part in the network consensus and earn rewards for its stakers.

A quick example: Suppose a blockchain network offers a 5% reward rate for a staking period of 1 year (5% APR). You decide to lock up and stake 100 tokens on the network. After a year, you can access your staked tokens, and you receive 5 additional tokens as your reward – minus eventual fees charged by the staking provider.

Staking Proof-of-Stake (PoS) cryptocurrencies such as TIA does not require stakers to transfer their token to validators. It is a non-custodial process.

Why is Stakin a great choice for Celestia staking?

Staking your assets on your own is operationally challenging as it requires specialist expertise to set up nodes and ensure constant uptime to maximize rewards or prevent so-called slashing: partial loss of your staked cryptocurrencies due to prolonged downtime, or inappropriate/malicious behavior by the node operator.
