Why should you Develop a DeFi Staking Platform

Undoubtedly, 2020 was a year of Decentralized Finance (DeFi). The total value locked (TVL) in DeFi protocols exploded and within 11 months the TVL shot up by 1964%. As the evolution of DeFi continues, it is changing the way people interact with money. Additionally, it offers lucrative money-making opportunities like DeFi staking. What makes DeFi staking even more interesting is that both stakers and staking platforms benefit from it.

Before we go into the details, let us first understand staking in DeFi. First things first, the users can lock up their crypto assets and earn easy passive income. Secondly, staking gives users an opportunity to participate in the governance model of the protocol. As everything is controlled via smart contracts, security is not at all a challenge in the DeFi staking space.

Given the above-mentioned advantages, the users are swarming towards DeFi staking platforms. Thus, operating a DeFi staking platform comes across as a wonderful business opportunity in the current times. However, to develop DeFi staking platform and make it cut through the competitive clutter can prove to be a challenging task. Why should one venture into this space?

DeFi staking offers lots of benefits to the staking platforms. These are:

  • Higher Liquidity

How does DeFi Staking Work?

As a DeFi staking platform owner, you can choose to get a customized staking platform. You go for a single token or dual token model.

1) Single Token model

In a single token setup, the platform will offer staking and rewards using the same token. That means if a user stakes token XYZ, he will receive the rewards as XYZ token only.

2) Dual Token model

In a single token setup, the platform offers staking and rewards using different tokens. That means if a user stakes the native token ABC, he will receive the rewards in XYZ token.

On staking, the tokens are locked in a smart contract. When the stake is locked, the user can vote to approve transactions. This contract defines the terms between the staker and the blockchain network. This process is becoming widely popular because it requires lesser computational power as compared to the PoW. Every network has its own set of staking rules that are executed using an algorithm. Some of the general rules are:

  • The staker must agree that he will validate only the valid transactions on the network. To state an example, they must not approve double-spent transactions.

The stakers are very important to attain the consensus. However, the DeFi staking platform development services need to make sure the reward distribution and rules are programmed into the platform.

How are DeFi Staking rewards calculated?

Generally, the staking rewards are generated based on the below parameters:

  • Number of assets staked in the platform
