Sam Enrico Williams, aka @samenricowilliams and “autodidact,” has made it huge in the blockchain and NFT space and has a lot to say on NFT Staking.
February 25: There have been a lot of conversations around Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) all over the world. People today are more aware of what they are and how they are getting leveraged by people worldwide to their benefits as they offer incredible opportunities for growth. They are often thought of as digital representations of collectibles and art that could appreciate in value over time. This is exactly what most of us know about NFTs; however, as days pass by and as more and more developments take place, we see how collectors and developers explore newer arenas of the NFT marketplace. Among the many new aspects growing around the topic, NFT Staking is one which several people are quite intrigued to know about.
“Locking a collection in a pool and then earning rewards from the staking platform is emerging as a cool side of NFTs as more people are finding it interesting to know about it,” says Sam Enrico Williams, a London, UK’s growing entrepreneur in the Defi space. He has today come forward to spill more beans on the topic and explain how NFT Staking really works.
“My twin brother and I have come a long way in the NFT space since we began creating crypto coins Zloadr in 2015 and DocTailor in 2018 for legal professionals. Over the years, we have seen how the sector has flourished, and now we can confidently say that NFT Staking in the coming times will gain more momentum and headlines for providing maximum rewards by locking up NFTs on a platform,” he further adds. Speaking in detail about NFT Staking, he says that it simply is locking the NFTs on a protocol or platform for receiving staking rewards and many other privileges. It is a concept that allows holders to earn a great income from their collection while also maintaining ownership. People get to keep their priced NFTs and still make money out of them. With their platform Zloadr, Sam says that holders will be able to earn rewards in crypto for holding ZDR within the Zloadr wallet for increasing their performance and earning potential of their Crypt2 (their full-scale esports NFT blockchain gaming ecosystem) NFT assets.
Throwing light on how NFT Staking works, he explains that the blockchain protocol locks the funds in a pool and randomly chooses validators who mine or conform blocks of transactions. So, every time a new block gets added to the chain, new tokens get minted and distributed to the validators as staking rewards, but the rewards they receive, depend upon a number of factors. Holders can lock their NFTs on specific platforms for safekeeping and then receive rewards based on APY (annual percentage yield) and the number of the staked NFTs.
Lastly, he wants people to know that not every NFT can be staked for rewards, and knowing the different requirements of different projects is necessary before acquiring any NFTs.
