What is Kava?

Kava is a Layer-1 blockchain that combines the speed, interoperability and low transaction fees of Cosmos with the developer power of Ethereum. Kava is also a lending platform; digital assets are locked as collateral in a CDP (Collateralized Debt Position). Those CDPs allow users to lock digital assets into a vault, thus getting a collateralized loan against the deposited amount.

The Kava blockchain is built on Tendermint and the Cosmos SDK. It is a Proof-of-Stake blockchain where Kava holders can stake and participate in decentralized governance. Besides providing a staking yield in the newly minted token, Kava features many earning opportunities through DeFi protocols and lending.

KAVA is the official cryptocurrency of the Kava ecosystem used for governance, voting on proposals for the Kava network, and as a reserve currency for ensuring the stability of the platform's crypto-backed loans and synthetic assets.

What is Kava staking?

Staking is a great way for long-term crypto investors to earn passive income on their Proof-of-Stake cryptocurrency assets (such as KAVA) 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 receive 5 additional tokens as your reward – minus eventual fees charged by the staking provider.

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

Why is Stakin a great choice for Kava (KAVA) 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 is an excellent choice for staking your Kava (KAVA)tokens, as we have a strong expertise and track record of reliable operations on this network. Stakin took part in early Kava testnets 1.0 and 2.0, supporting the network since June 2019. We have also been a Genesis mainnet validator since November 2019.
