Ethereum 2.0 upgrade could bring back another round of staking enthusiasm if it goes forward to replace mining in 2020 as we are reading in the Ethereum latest news.
Staking coins could even become popular again as passive income and slow growth replace previous highly speculative users so the staking is nothing new in the crypto space but this time there is improved infrastructure and more reliable projects. The 2020 prediction came from the popular crypto analyst Alex Kruger and took into account the staking success of Tezos so far.
The Tezos project offers improve and more reliable governance in the process of ‘’baking’’ and also the custodial services of Coinbase which offer a more reliable source of passive XTZ. Instead, the vast array of staking coins compared in the past, the passive income practice is usually attracted to the most liquid coins which keep the relative stability of the prices. The new Ethereum 2.0 upgrade as the new staking mechanism will extend the culture of storing ETH coins so the passive income for ETH is possible for schemes such as Compound and Maker as well as the exchange-based return programs by Binance.
As ETH is still quite stable, the coin has a new utility which is a source of passive income but staking could also mean that the selling pressure will be here as the rewards are monetized. The staking could replace the low mining rewards as the difficulty time bomb which is still affecting the network. ETH is not the only coin that will test staking since other projects also offer passive income including Chainlink.
Tezos offers one of the greatest passive annual incomes of more than 6 percent combined with the inflation based on the increasing supply of the XTZ token. Cosmos also annualized earnings of about 8.52 percent and some coins offer extremely high annualized earnings such as Livepeer at 78 percent. The ETH staking still has unclear parameters that range from staking a few ETH to about a thousand of coins. For now, it is unclear what kinds of rewards they will be but the returns will aim to be relatively low.
