Crypto Staking FAQs
StakePark.xyz is where the web learns to stake their crypto. We’re building StakeBoard, an app that lets you view your staking assets and find new staking opportunities that offer the best APY.
StakeBoard is the ultimate web3 staking dashboard. Designed for new and seasoned stakers alike, StakeBoard makes staking simple and easy to stay on top of. Built internally by the StakePark Team, StakeBoard is designed to be a simple, one-stop shop for checking your active staking accounts and finding opportunities for your non-staked (or idle) assets.
Staking is safe because it’s non-custodial, meaning you do not transfer your crypto into another entity’s wallet or control.
Self-custody wallets, or non-custodial wallets, are crypto wallets that give users full control of their private key and crypto assets.
Cold crypto wallets are named so because you use them offline or they are hardware secured.
Hot wallets are crypto wallets connected to the internet. MetaMask, Exodus, and Coinbase Wallet are all considered hot wallets.
Cold staking enables crypto holders to earn rewards while keeping their assets in hardware wallets, or cold wallets, that are not connected to the internet. Cold staking can be done using proof-of-stake blockchains such as Ethereum 2.0. You will see the staking rewards when you reconnect to check the balances.
Cold wallets, such as Ledger and Trezor, are hardware-based wallets. They aren’t connected to the internet and store your private keys offline.
