Hier tekst m.b.t. Cardano
Cardano is a proof-of-stake (POS) blockchain platform: the first to be founded on peer-reviewed research, developed through evidence-based methods. It combines pioneering technologies to provide unparalleled security and sustainability to decentralized applications, systems, and societies. Besides, with more than 1200 stakepools, Cardano is the most decentralized blockchain of the world.
With a leading team of engineers, Cardano exists to redistribute power from unaccountable structures to the margins – to individuals – and be an enabling force for positive change and progress.
By launching the Shelley upgrade, Cardano introduced staking rewards for users who hold the ADA cryptocurrency. So If you decide to stake(delegate) your Cardano (ADA tokens), you’ll periodically earn a return on your investment. This period is flexible and you can decide to undelegate your ADA at any time or stake your ADA at another stakepool. Staking also helps the Cardano network: it is the process by which validators are selected to create a new block and process transactions.
Cardano staking operates on a cyclical basis rewards are paid out every “epoch,” or every five days.
