By now, everyone around the world will be aware of the Corona Virus (COVID19). Many of us will have been impacted in some way, either through panic buying of toilet paper, or changed travel plans or simply cancelled public events. Are we all going to die, I suggest not. I’m not a medical expert on the virus and I will not be discussing the health implications of such a pandemic. But to think that will be the only type of impact is short-sighted. So how will this affect the crypto industry?

Airdrops are so 2017, free money was fun while it lasted but now when someone says free money in crypto, the first thoughts are scams and ponzi schemes. But in 2020, there is a way to earn free money, in a legitimate, common practice, and logical manner — staking.

Staking is the core concept behind the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus protocol that is quickly becoming an industry standard throughout blockchain projects. PoS allows blockchains to scale effectively without compromising on security and resource efficiency. Projects that incorporate staking include aelf, Dash, EOS, Cosmos, Cardano, Dfinity and many others.
