Staking Pool

A “staking pool” is a smart contract which acts very similar to both a Liquidity Pool and Lending Pool. Users can contribute funds by “locking” them, sometimes for a predefined minimum amount of time, to the contract itself. In doing so, they will earn passive income in the form of rewards. These rewards may be in the form of protocol fees, token inflation, or more. In addition, by being a participant in the staking pool users can usually participate in governance voting. Unlike with liquidity or lending pools, staking pools typically support only single asset staking of the protocol’s native token and do not inherently promote capital efficiency.
