Coinbase Custody to Support Secure Cardano Staking This Year

Paddy Baker
·1-min read

Cardano holders will soon be able to stake tokens securely at Coinbase Custody.

  • At the Cardano Virtual Summit Friday, chief developer house IOHK announced it had signed an agreement with Coinbase Custody.

  • From Q4 2020, users will be able to stake their ADA tokens from inside Coinbase’s cold storage.

  • In proof-of-stake blockchains, like Cardano, blocks are verified by token holders (rather than miners as with blockchains like Bitcoin), who receive rewards in return.

  • Cardano’s staking protocol, Shelley, is expected to come online later this month with staking rewards beginning in mid-August.

  • Sam McIngvale, Coinbase Custody’s head of product said their regulated product would help projects, like Cardano, find more mainstream acceptance.

  • Tezos inked a similar staking agreement with Coinbase Custody in November 2019.
