Cryptocurrency Staking Rewards Top $20 Billion in 2020: Report

The launch of Ethereum 2.0 in December 2020, along with the rise of alternative staking chains like Polkadot and Solana, has helped grow the proof-of-stake blockchain market cap to more than $175 billion, according to Staked’s report. And the firm expects that figure to keep growing in 2021.
β€œEvery proof-of-stake blockchain project needs to ensure that the returns paid to participants is lucrative enough to tie up their holdings and bear slashing risks. Otherwise, their entire security model is at risk,” Staked CEO Tim Ogilvie told Decrypt.

β€œI'd expect the yield from staking to come down over time as people get comfortable with the risks and staking gets easier. But I also think the most successful projects will actively think about β€˜monetary policy’ for their chains, ensuring the right balance between security and inflation.”

Staked found that staking across various blockchains earned an average weighted yield of 11.2% per year, a healthy return compared to the less than 3% average dividend yield provided by the S&P 500 over the last decade, according to Investopedia.
