The current changes to the crypto ecosystem has likely left many users wondering what the best choices are in regards to their crypto holdings. Before making any decisions, take stock and reexamine your current approach to risk management.
If you’re already a Binance.US customer, we want to help. Let’s take a look at the risks involved with staking on Binance.US and how we manage your assets.
What is Binance.US Staking?
Cryptocurrency staking allows you to earn rewards on your existing cryptocurrency holdings. Like the name suggests, cryptocurrency staking is typically, but not always, available on assets that use the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism.
Here’s how it works: When you stake crypto, you commit your assets toward securing the asset’s Proof-of-Stake (PoS) network. As long as your assets remain staked, they’re used to verify transactions on the network, facilitate decentralized governance, and improve the network’s resilience.
On Binance.US, even when you stake your assets, they remain your assets. You can withdraw them whenever you want, but they may be subject to an unstaking period, meaning you may have to wait a period of days before they are returned to you. The network generates rewards through newly created block rewards, transaction fees, or both collected from circulating assets to incentivize staking. All staking rewards generated by blockchain validation are passed directly to you.
Independent cryptocurrency staking can be a daunting process for most individuals. In addition to meeting hardware requirements that may vary from asset to asset, users may also need to install and run their own nodes. Binance.US offers a user-friendly interface and industry-leading uptime across nodes, making it a destination of choice for customers looking to earn rewards on their assets.

Protection from penalties and slashing

Thanks to Binance.US, users don’t need to provide the traditional 32 ETH to stake on the Ethereum network. Users looking to enjoy ETH staking can do so for as little as 0.001 ETH. This drastically lowers the barrier to entry by requiring significantly less capital to start staking.
