As a suitable option for long -term crypto token holders, staking pools offer the promise of achieving results in addition to the capital gains gained through appreciation of token value.
One can invest in a stock pool with a fraction of the number of tokens required to be a validator on PoS blocks, while the staking pool offers daily, weekly or monthly rewards, depending on the digital currency at stake. For example, investors can stake ETH tokens in a staking pool at Coinbase for daily rewards and without a minimum balance requirement.
Another popular blockchain for stock tokens is Cosmos, the second largest ecosystem in the blockchain. Investors can also issue these tokens through various validators across multiple chains available in the Cosmos ecosystem.
Choosing the staking pool you want to put in depends on a number of factors, including commission rates, which typically range between 5% to 6% and how you contribute to the ecosystem like creating code for a validated project. The annual percentage rate (APR) varies depending on the chain, with the APR at Cosmos Hub 15%, for Osmosis 60%and Juno offering 150%, which is higher.
In addition to these factors, many staking pool operators offer unique value propositions that can attract potential stakeholders. A relevant example here is Cosmos Antimatter, a new Cosmos ecosystem validator that promotes decentralization in validator networks. The main goal is to ensure that no validator cartel is formed while providing 100% profits to the stakeholder ecosystem.
