Staking is an integral part of the consensus mechanism. Chiliz Chain depends on a robust structure of validators that help in reducing gas fees and shorten the block time. Usually, blockchains use consensus mechanisms based on Proof of Stake (PoS). The participants for staking get opportunities based on their stake in the pool to validate transactions and create more blocks and become validators.
As a user, you can decide how long you want to stake your CHZ. That way, it becomes easier to participate in and support activities on the blockchain. You earn more rewards in return for staking your share.
