Staking: a unique part of the DeFi space.

But what is staking exactly?

3 min readMay 13, 2022


It’s useful to understand what staking is and how it works. When a cryptocurrency allows staking it uses a consensus mechanism called Proof of Stake. This way you have the guarantee that all transactions are verified and secured without a third party involved. If you choose staking for your crypto, then your asset becomes a part of this process.

Now let’s talk a little bit about Proof of Stake. This consensus mechanism has emerged — with the idea of increasing speed and efficiency while lowering fees.

In general, Proof of Stake reduces fees by not requiring miners to validate operations. Instead, these operations are validated by people that have put their tokens in the blockchain via staking.

So this means that staking serves a similar function to mining — being the process in which users offer their tokens to add a new block onto the blockchain. Their staked tokens will act as a guarantee of the legitimacy of any new transaction they add to the blockchain.

Staking with DeFi Yield Protocol

DeFi Yield Protocol is a platform that offers different possibilities for staking various assets without the risk of impermanent loss.

Should I remind you that DYP was the very first DeFi platform that uses an anti-manipulation feature which aims to limit the market impact on its users. All our smart contracts have been audited by well known security audit companies like Blockchain Consilium, Certik, and PeckShield. This means that they were checked and double checked in order to offer you the safest ecosystem for your tokens.

If you are thinking of using DYP as your staking platform, let us describe a little bit our staking services:
