Major cryptocurrency exchange Binance has announced support for Tezos (XTZ) staking at zero fee.
On Dec. 3, an announcement was made by Binance stating that users will be able to trade with XTZ, with XTZ rewards to be calculated daily based on live snapshots and distributed monthly. The distribution is set to end before Jan. 20, and after that on the 20th day of each following month.
Users are said to hold at least 1 XTZ in order to qualify for staking rewards. Currently, Tezos is trading at $1.26 in publishing time.
Binance initially hinted at the possibility of staking when it listed the coin with the three trading pairs against Bitcoin (BTC), Tether (USDT) and Binance Coin (BNB).
Staking refers to the practice of holding a cryptocurrency in a wallet to support a blockchain network’s operations. In addition to allowing holders to vote on blockchain operations, staking also generates periodic rewards for the holder staking their funds.
