What is ICON?

The ICON Network enables different blockchains to communicate with each other via its BTP (Blockchain Transmission Protocol) technology, thus making ICON a blockchain aggregator.

ICON supports smart contracts and is built with a focus on interoperability. Multiple Dapps have already been deployed on ICON, including Balanced DAO, ICONBet, NFT Project Nebula, and the Staking No loss Lottery.

ICX is ICON’s native cryptocurrency token used for gas fees and value transfer in the ICON ecosystem. ICON is governed by a network of 100+ P-Reps (Public Representatives) and 22 Main P-Reps.

What is ICON staking?

Staking is a great way for long-term crypto investors to earn passive income on their Proof-of-Stake cryptocurrency assets (such as ICX) 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 ICX does not require stakers to transfer their token to validators. It is a non-custodial process.

Why is Stakin a great choice for ICON 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.

Stakin has been a Main P-Rep since 2019 with 99.8%+ uptime and a Testnet node operator. Stakin has been involved in every decentralized governance decision, including ICON CPS.
