eToro is a multi-asset platform that offers both investing in stocks and crypto assets, as well as trading CFDs.

CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. 67% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with this provider. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

Past performance is not an indication of future results.

Cryptoassets are volatile instruments that can fluctuate widely in a very short timeframe and therefore are not appropriate for all investors. Other than via CFDs, trading crypto assets is unregulated and therefore is not supervised by any EU regulatory framework.

Compare Staking Coins: Find the Best Staking Crypto Rewards

The table below saves you a ton of time by providing a thorough comparison of the annualized staking rewards offered by trusted platforms.

We have also included whitepapers since new cryptocurrency projects are sprouting up at light speed to help facilitate your education and research. We note that it has not always been easy to find the whitepapers for certain cryptocurrency projects. This could be due to changes in the internal link structure or the temporary removal of their whitepaper, which is not really good practice!

🔎 In addition to staking rewards, we are also tracking the annualized yield on crypto savings accounts, which may on occasion provide superior returns for certain projects.

🔎 If you are interested in less price volatility, visit our best stablecoin savings account page to see how savings rates stack up against staking yields or if you’re looking for a more focused analysis on Bitcoin then visit our best bitcoin savings accounts page.

Pool-X Soft, Fixed and Flexible Staking explained

KuCoin’s Soft Staking Program migrated to the Pool-X 1.2 platform on 16th April 2020. The list in the table above includes the flexible and fixed staking coins that are available on Pool-X. To learn more about the difference between fixed, flexible, and soft staking on Pool-X, click here.

We note that Pool-X began reporting a reference annual yield on their flexible staking coins. This is essentially the yield after converting the POL that is received from staking to the reference currency of the digital asset that is being staked. It is evident that staking on Pool-X (and receiving POL for staking) significantly raises the annualized total yield.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Staking?

In laymen terms, staking is the process of keeping funds in a cryptocurrency wallet (or staking pool) to help the underlying proof-of-stake blockchain network operate more efficiently and securely.

But let’s briefly break this down starting from first-principle. In the English dictionary, the word “stake” is used in the context of “supporting” – think of the word “stakeholders” which makes reference to those people internally supporting a particular business (shareholders, customers, employees, etc) to grow and prosper. In the context of cryptocurrency, the term “staking” has the same meaning. Its crypto origins come from the term proof-of-stake, which is a consensus algorithm that is supported by a cluster of nodes that purchase a stake (through buying pre-mined tokens) in a particular network. The point here is that nodes play an important stakeholder role in supporting the growth and prosperity of a particular network. If you want to explore this topic further, read our comprehensive staking guide.

Why was Proof of Stake (PoS) developed?

Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism was born in 2011 as a way to use far less energy than Proof of Work (PoW) to validate transactions on the blockchain, and thus make the process significantly more sustainable.

Proof of Work vs Proof of Stake: what’s the difference?

In Proof of Work (PoW), miners with specialised hardware ASICs try to solve complex cryptographic problems in order to receive the block reward + transaction fee as an incentive for solving the puzzle.
However, solving these increasingly difficult mathematical puzzles is extremely energy-intensive.

With Proof of Stake (PoS), no mining is required to solve complex mathematical puzzles to validate transactions and therefore the process is significantly less energy-intensive. In proof-of-stake mechanisms, new blocks are created through a process known as ‘forging‘ or ‘minting‘ (not ‘mining’) through a pseudo-random selection process. Unlike proof-of-work systems whereby a miner is awarded a block reward plus the transaction fees, in a proof-of-stake system the chosen node that helps to protect and run the network is rewarded with only the transaction fees.

How does Proof of Stake (PoS) mechanism work?

Essentially, in a Proof of Stake consensus mechanism, nodes participating in the forging process of a particular blockchain network will be required to purchase pre-mined tokens (locking a certain amount of tokens) as a stake.

The nodes that are successful at validating a transaction are selected through a pseudo-random process that is based on numerous factors such as the size of the stake. The means a bigger stake has a higher probability of being selected to validate a transaction (and earning the transaction fee) although newer staking mechanisms are adding a greater weighting to other factors such as node age, wealth and specific behaviours to ensure nodes are always acting in the best interest of the network.

What are staking rewards?

Staking rewards are the tokens that are received (as an incentive) for helping to protect and support a blockchain network that is governed by a Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanism. These tokens are actually a proportion of the newly minted tokens in the network.

The value of these freshly minted tokens is essentially derived through the interplay of supply and demand of the network’s listed-token on a cryptocurrency exchange.

How does staking inflation work?

When a Proof-of-Stake network issues new tokens to compensate nodes for protecting the network, the new supply of tokens dilutes their relative ownership/participation in the network. Many refer to this as the staking inflation rate but what’s really happening here (all else equal) is dilution. Unless a node is maintaining its stake in the network, all else equal, a constant increase of new token supply will dilute a node’s stake in the network. This, in turn, lowers the probability of being selected to validate the next transaction (and therefore earn the transaction fees) and also dilutes the price of all the tokens traded on the secondary market. This is why it is important to compare the annual inflation rate together with the annual yield or APR (annual percentage rate) for staking rewards.

How do you calculate the inflation /dilution rate?

Simply divide the number of newly minted tokens (expected in a year) by the total supply of tokens at the beginning of the year.
