What to consider when buying xDAI Stake

In the past, he has been associated with a number of other prominent startups such as BlockScout, Block Notary and TokenBridge.
  • Operational model: Network participants who own significant amounts of the xDai token can become network validators, thus securing the platform through their efforts. Holders are also afforded the ability to participate in determining network consensus as well as stake their xDai in order to receive passive income streams.
  • Staking: The xDai platform makes use of a public POSDAO and DPoS mechanism, thereby allowing any individual with enough STAKE tokens to run a node within the network.
