Netcoins will roll out staking with Ethereum (ETH) and intends to add Solana (SOL) as a fast follow to our portfolio. Over the past year, Netcoins has reinvigorated its mission to be North America’s most transparent and customer-focused, platform. By adding staking to our existing Netcoins Pay and crypto trading suite of over 35 assets, we believe that we are now amongst the leaders in the regulated Canadian crypto market when it comes to our suite of products.”
BIGG CEO, Mark Binns, commented, “Netcoins is now 1 of only 3 regulated crypto staking platforms in Canada, and this approval is a big step forward for our platform and future. This shows our high level of engagement with the Canadian regulators and our maturity – we have nearly 10 years of experience in the Canadian crypto industry. With staking, we look forward to welcoming new customers to the platform on the back of this substantial new offering.”
What is Staking?
Staking is the process of holding onto or “staking” a certain amount of cryptocurrency to participate in transaction validation. This occurs on a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) blockchain network, often considered a less resource-intensive alternative to mining in proof-of-work networks. By staking, individuals can earn rewards in the form of newly minted coins and help to secure the network. The key and simple takeaway for crypto investors is that staking is a means of earning rewards for holding onto cryptocurrencies.

Staking with Netcoins will be just as easy as using the rest of the platform. If a customer holds an eligible staking crypto asset, they can begin staking safely and transparently. By staking with Netcoins, customers can earn passive income from their cryptocurrency holdings while supporting the security of the network. The key and simple takeaway for Netcoins’ 200,000 registered customers is that staking is a means of earning rewards for holding onto cryptocurrencies.
