What is a staking pool?
ADA holders of are entitled to rewards for participating in the network, proportional to their balance. Unlike Bitcoin or proof-of-work systems, no specialist or extra hardware is needed; you simply need to run wallet software on a regular computer or laptop. However, this can be impractical for two reasons:
- it requires leaving your wallet connected at all times, and
- unless you have a very large amount of ADA, the rewards will be extremely infrequent.
