BTC, the first generation of cryptocurrency, brought the necessary change in our world. It is the first decentralized blockchain product. However, it failed to solve the energy consumption issue or consider the impact they will make on the environment because they required Proof of Work (POW).

With the cryptocurrency world growing, it is now common to see Proof of Stake(POS) coins. They don’t require energy consumption to verify transaction. On top of that, you can make a lot of profit by staking the POS coins.

Staking Pools — How they work

Let’s take an example.

Person A: He is a staking wallet with 1000 ADA coins. He doesn’t want to stake his coins and just want to do it solo. Now, when a block needs to be mined, the blockchain tries to find the most suited staking wallet to do it. In this case, there are slim chances that Person A wallet will be chosen to validate the block.

Person B: Person B understand staking pool. He takes part in the staking pool by contributing the number of his coins into it. As the staking pool value is way higher compared to other wallets/pool, there are high chances that it will be rewarded for resolving a pool. For example, the pool has more than 1 million ADA. This makes the pool at higher chances of being chosen for block verification.

By taking part in staking pool, Person B has a higher chance of earning more profit. The reward is divided among the pool participant. The pool service might take some percentage of the reward as service charges.
