Introducing Native Staking Phase 1 on the Hedera Network

Jul 21, 2022Hedera Team

Hedera is a proof-of-stake network, meaning it does not require mining to solve computational problems and deliver proof of work for reward. Instead, Hedera’s design uses the value of a scarce, “pre-minted” resource ($HBAR), staked to network nodes, to achieve consensus and protect the network against certain forms of cyberattack, including Sybil attacks. Enabling native staking, therefore, is essential for the Hedera network to continue along its path to decentralization and to incentivize staking behavior to protect the network from attack.
