Binance US is now offering crypto staking services and the firm details that seven digital currencies are currently available with annual percentage yields (APYs) up to 18%. Customers can earn yields on proof-of-stake (PoS) cryptocurrencies that include binance coin, solana, avalanche, livepeer, graph, cosmos, and audius.
With Binance US getting into the game of staking services, the firm joins competitors like Crypto.com, Kraken, Gemini, Coinbase, FTX, Tradestation, and other trading platforms that offer staking services for customers. In addition to centralized exchanges, crypto users can also stake coins in a non-custodial fashion by leveraging decentralized finance (defi) applications and delegating coins directly to PoS network validators.
Binance US is the American partner of the world’s largest crypto exchange by trade volume, Binance. The exchange, founded in 2017, ceased servicing Americans in 2019 and revealed the subsidiary Binance US shortly after. According to coingecko.com data, while Binance is the world’s largest by volume, Binance US is the 15th largest at the time of writing.
