##More on staking

In staking, there are typically two main roles, validating and delegating. Validators are responsible for verifying and processing transactions and they receive rewards for their efforts. Delegators, on the other, hand are individuals or organizations who may not have the technical knowledge or resources to run a validation node – but still want to participate in the staking process and receive rewards.

In this situation, a delegator would “delegate” their stake (their crypto) to a trusted validator. The important thing to note here is the crypto remains under their delegator’s control, but the rewards earned by the validator are shared with the delegator.
