Cardano is a revolutionary 3rd generation block chain technology that aims to fix many of the issues that plague its predecessors. An emphasis on peer review and scientific methods ensures that Cardano's ecosystem remains robust and secure.
From July 29th 2020, Cardano will become a decentralised network with stake pools operating 24/7 to maintain the system. Owners of the ADA coin will delegate to stake pools of their choosing and earn rewards in return.
WHAT IS STAKING?
ADA holders are able to earn rewards by delegating their stake to a stake pool or running a stake pool themselves. Each ADA coin represents a "vote" of sorts as to which stake pool shall mint the next block. For each block minted, rewards are earned and distributed evenly amongst delegators, with the pool operator taking a small portion of the rewards.
