Staking is a process which ODN holders can easily implement in an official Obsidian wallet, and is a method used by proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchains to secure the network.
In very simple terms, staking can be thought of in a similar way to mining, in that staking periodically generates coins as a reward to the wallet, (also known as a node), that is staking.
You do not need a supercomputer or specialist graphics card to stake Obsidian coins. In fact, you can stake ODN on a low-cost Raspberry Pi. A very small amount of energy is required to facilitate staking Obsidian coins.
The more ODN you hold in your wallet, the more staking rewards you will earn. It does not matter how powerful your machine is.
There are a few options if you want to get some Obsidian (ODN) coins, and more coming soon. First of all, register on an official, well-known exchange such as Cryptopia, and on there you can trade fractional amounts of Bitcoin (BTC) for Obsidian (ODN) coins.
You can also earn ODN by completing community bounties. Join our community channels to find out more. If you already have ODN coins, stake them in official Obsidian wallets to earn more ODN over time.
