Binance adds NAV to their locked staking program

NAV | 01.14| 15

We are very excited to share the news that NAV has been added to the Binance Locked Staking program.

Navcoin’s network is secured by a Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism, which means that anyone can use their NAV to help validate transaction blocks. The PoS mechanism is inclusive in nature and allows all community members to act as network validators. By comparison, the Proof of Work (PoW) consensus mechanism that Bitcoin uses requires miners to operate powerful computers that are able to calculate huge mathematical problems in order to process transactions. The first computer that ‘solves’ the problem receives a reward for doing so and this mining process requires expensive hardware, access to cheap electricity, and is extremely energy intensive. PoS does away with these resource intensive requirements and the entry barrier to take part in staking on the network is lowered.

With the addition of NAV to the Binance staking catalogue, traders who keep their coins in the exchange will be able to earn passive income from their holdings and contribute to strengthen the security of our network, as their NAV will participate in the transaction validation process.

You can read more about the Binance locked staking program conditions in their announcement.
