What is Mina?

Mina Protocol is often referred to as the lightest blockchain in the world. Mina is unique because it follows a design infrastructure that will always be 22kb, unlike many other blockchains where storage requirements keep growing.

Because Mina is small, anyone can connect peer-to-peer, quickly sync and verify the chain. Based on a consistent-sized cryptographic proof, the blockchain will remain accessible even as it grows.

Mina Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus is built on Ouroboros and called Ouroboros Samisika. This PoS consensus requires far less computational power than Proof-of-Work (PoW). Ouroboros Samisika relies on VRF (Verifiable Random Function) for improved security and resolves long-range forks without compromising the network’s decentralization.

MINA is the native cryptocurrency of the Mina Protocol used to execute network transactions as well as for staking.

What is MINA staking?

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

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

Why is Stakin a great choice for Mina (MINA) 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 Mina (MINA) tokens, as we have a strong expertise and track record of reliable operations on this network. Stakin has been active in the Mina Network since the Coda Testnet Beta phases in January 2020. We’ve automated payouts every active epoch (15 days on average) with automated compounding. Stakin has also been elected as a Genesis Founding Member for a positive testnet track record.

  • Triple AAA-rated institutional staking provider by Staking Rewards

  • ISO 27001 certified staking provider

  • Tracking dashboard, to easily track and generate reports for the performance of your staked assets
