Learn about Bitcoin Staking
Bitcoin is based on Proof of Work, and cannot be staked directly. However, there are several options for you to earn passive income on your BTC.
- Lend your Bitcoin with custodial Platforms. These platforms have institutional clients who would like to borrow BTC in order to short the BTC price. In order to fill the borrow demand, users can supply BTC to the platforms and earn attractive returns simply for lending BTC.
- Wrap your Bitcoin into tokenized BTC in order to supply them to DeFi lending platforms or other applications. These decentralized applications are based on Ethereum and create an economy where users can borrow crypto to leverage their investments.
The BTC lending rates highly depend on the current market conditions. In bull markets, the lending rates tend to go up due to the strong demand to borrow crypto in order to either short the market or leverage long certain positions.
The rates on many DeFi platforms do change on a daily basis, whereas many custodial platforms offer fixed APY since they have long-term contracts with institutional borrowers.
