  • Any risks to Staking CRO?
  • Unstaking your CRO is a 28-day process over which the price can change drastically, this means you face a risk to reward trade off where if you stake you earn passive income on your CRO but are unable to sell at the optimal time it if the price appreciates. Furthermore since you are staking off a Defi Wallet, you risk loosing your seed phrase and thus loosing access to the funds you had stored in the wallet.
