This acquisition forms the foundation of BitGo Staking through the combination of Hedge’s automated safe and secure implementations, redundant and scalable procedures, and the use of hardware security modules (HSMs) and secure cryptographic enclaves.
Evidence of Stake (PoS) is acquiring momentum as a variety of brand-new protocols transfer to the PoS design. Ethereum, the 2nd largest possession by market cap, is expected to transition to this model within the next year. A crucial benefit of the PoS model is that it does not need considerable amounts of committed mining power making it more energy effective than PoW. In addition, the ability of PoS coins and tokens to create passive returns makes them appealing to a variety of investors and can incentivize long-lasting holding of the possession.
