Generating passive income is one of the most compelling features of the decentralized assets space. The idea of minimal risk and “no-effort-required-to-generate-revenue” is at the core of almost all Proof-of-Stake networks that ensure security of their protocols by incentivising users to lock up their assets and vouch for the validator they trust. The process of vouching for network operators is often called “staking”.
