Staking is the process of participating in a blockchain network by locking up cryptocurrency to help validate transactions.

Crowdstaking is a unique model offered by Crowdstake where users can delegate their staking rewards to fund projects, charities, or investments. Instead of donating their principal cryptocurrency, users allocate the rewards generated from their staked assets, allowing them to support causes they care about while retaining their principal investment.

  3. Easy Offramping: Our platform provides easy and secure options for converting cryptocurrency donations into fiat currency, simplifying the process of moving off the blockchain.
