About Tezos

Tezos is a new advanced and decentralized cryptocurrency. The network is based on a community-driven governance mechanism. This means that every HODLER of Tezos can influence the blockchain functionalities. For example holder of Tezos can agree/vote on features and upgrades of the underlying blockchain by participating in the voting mechanism. Compared to other Blockchains like Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, EOS etc. the blockchain can amend without forking the chain.

About the staking feature

Tezos uses a proof-of-stake protocol. This is called in the community as baking (arising from staking). This mechanism secures the network, like the known mining with Bitcoin. The difference between mining and baking is that your power does depend on the amount of Tez you hold not on the hardware power you have. Like with mining you will be rewarded to participate in the proof-of stake mechanism with Tezos tokens depending on the amount you bake or delegate.

 


How to generate passive income on Tezos?

For participating in the validation of the Tezos blockchain you can earn block rewards in XTZ coins.

The current reward for staking Tezos can be around 6% per year.*

There are 2 main possibilities to participate:

  • Baking on your own
  • Use a delegation service - Preferred

Difference between Baking and Delegating

Baking

You can bake on your own by setting up a node and having at least 8,000.00 Tez. Please note that this is kind of "tech savvy" and you are putting your actual Tezos at stake

Delegating - RECOMMENDED

Tezos offers you the possibility to participate in staking without risking your coins by delegating your baking rights to a delegation service.

The delegation service will charge a fee for their service and distribute the remaining baking rewards to you.

The provider has to send the baking reward (minus the applied fee) back to you. That means that you have to trust the delegation service.

Fees

Every delegation service takes a fee for its service. Choose the delegation service with the best fee structure for you.

Overdelegation

Depending on the service's baking bond (amount of Tezos he is actually baking with) the delegation service can accept only a limited amount of Tez via delegation.

Overdelegated delegation services will not receive rewards for the overdelegated amount of Tez.
