Bitbuy Makes Staking Ethereum Crypto Simple

With Ethereum, staking is fast and simple. Deposit funds via Interac eTransfer or bank wire, purchase Ethereum on the platform, and pick Ethereum as the staking crypto. With Bitbuy as your digital platform, your Ethereum holdings will never leave your account, and the funds will be paid out every 12 hours.

How Ethereum Staking Rewards Work

1. Ethereum utilizes a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) cryptocurrency consensus mechanism that confirms transactions and manufactures new blocks through randomly chosen validators.

2. Validators are picked based on how many coins they have locked up in the blockchain network.

3. Ethereum holders can stake their tokens to a minimum of one validator to the protocol's Mainnet Beta (a permissionless environment for Ethereum users, crypto holders, builders, and validators).

4. Anyone with Ethereum can stake their holdings, which are then used as collateral.

5. Once the coins are chosen to validate a transaction, stakers will receive an Ethereum staking reward.
