About the BNB Chain
The Binance ecosystem has evolved beyond the Binance Chain that provides the framework for the Binance decentralized exchange (DEX).
The BNB Chain is a newer chain that runs in parallel to the Binance Chain. It has smart contracts capabilities as it is fully compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine, creating a more powerful chain for launching decentralized applications (dApps), Web3 games, DeFi applications, and more.
The BNB Chain is one of the most popular blockchains in the world for building new projects due to its incredible scalability and throughput. The BSC has seen immense growth as the top developer choice to help eliminate the high gas fees and slow speeds that have become associated with legacy chains like Ethereum.
The BSC has some distinct advantages with full EVM compatibility, fast transactions, low fees, more interoperability, and a powerful network. And now, earning more rewards while supporting the BSC network via staking has never been easier, thanks to BNB liquid staking from Ankr Staking.
How to stake your BNB with Ankr Earn?
Ankr's liquid staking solution makes earning with your BNB incredibly easy.
You can get started once you have funded a wallet such as TrustWallet with BNB assets. You can then head to the Ankr Staking platform and choose how much you would like to stake.
Staking with Ankr removes all the complexity behind staking on Proof-of-Stake networks with no in-depth knowledge or delegation process necessary.
Stake as little as 1 BNB to earn staking rewards
Ankr's BNB staking solution makes BNB staking incredibly accessible for anyone with a minimum requirement of only 1 BNB to get started. You can earn the same APY as whale stakers without needing large amounts of BNB to contribute.
The rewards will be distributed right to your wallet
Hold your BNB in your TrustWallet or others and collect staking rewards effortlessly. You can unstake your BNB at any time via the Ankr Staking platform by choosing “unstake.”
Staking BNB directly contributes to the security of the entire network
When you stake BNB through Ankr or directly to nodes, you are contributing to the security and operations of the entire BNB Chain network.
BNB Liquid Staking
Ankr Staking is all about simplifying the staking process while opening the doors for our users to earn more layers of income.
Our newest product, BNB liquid staking, is designed to give you access to more ways to increase your potential rewards and boost your overall ROI from BNB assets. BNB liquid staking is an enhanced method of staking on the BNB Chain. Staking on Proof-of-Stake networks normally means you would need to lock your tokens up with a validator node. This isn't ideal as your assets are now “illiquid” or unavailable to spend or earn in other places. Illiquidity is sometimes the price paid for making an APR with some financial strategies, but thanks to BNB liquid staking, it is totally avoidable.
How does it work?
Benefits of BNB liquid staking over normal staking
Using Ankr Staking is the best way to stake BNB, as you can access instant liquidity in the form of the aBNBb token. Avoiding locking your tokens up with the BSC network is a big advantage — it allows you to use the value of your staked tokens to earn multiple layers of rewards on DeFi platforms and multiply your ROI potential. Yield farming, arbitrage trading, lending, and more will all be possible using the value of your staked assets.
If you would like to unstake your BNB, you can choose the “unstake” option at any time on the Ankr Staking platform. After you select unstake, you will need to wait seven days before you can claim your funds. During this time, your BNB will still be earning staking rewards. This creates a more robust price stability mechanism for BNB liquid staking, where any price deviation of aBNBb vs. its fair value will create trading opportunities that can be exploited by redeeming aBNBb (unstaking BNB) or minting aBNBb (staking BNB).
That means if you could potentially buy aBNBb at a discount on a DEX and unstake it on Ankr Staking at its fair value to make a profit! Therefore, aBNBb price stability will be less dependent on the size of liquidity pools and associated rewards.
Borrowing and Lending
The aBNBb tokens will also allow users to borrow against their aBNBb assets in exchange for assets like BNB that can be restaked or used for additional earning strategies. Or, lend your aBNBb assets in return for interest paid by borrowers.
No technical knowledge required
Receive an easier staking experience with no technical knowledge necessary. Liquid staking makes staking as easy as a swap: exchange your BNB for the reward-earning aBNBb token.
Our BNB liquid staking will not be using only Ankr validator nodes to stake the BNB from users. Ankr Staking will select several suitable and reliable BSC validators, making BNB liquid staking as decentralized as possible. This means that Ankr will not contribute to giving any party more influence over the BSC network as the BNB will be spread over a wide variety of nodes. Ultimately, the end goal is to have Ankr governance decide on the target allocation to different validator nodes.
As liquid staking solves the capital inefficiency problem of Proof-of-Stake networks, it offers a way to earn additional rewards on your staked BNB, enabling new yield farming strategies. The main components of BNB liquid staking will be:
Liquidity mining opportunities are enabled by providing liquidity for pools in decentralized exchanges. The first main liquidity pools are expected to be aBNBb/BNB.
Farming rewards for liquidity providers. Liquid staking presents several yield farming strategies for users to contribute to liquidity pools and gain a share of the trading fees and governance tokens. These new LP tokens can be used to generate yet another layer of earnings.
Staking rewards on farmed tokens. After using yield farming strategies, users can also reinvest their farmed LP tokens into more staking opportunities. This is a highly repeatable process as layers of rewards from farming and staking will quickly stack up.
Yield aggregators/vaults can automate yield farming rewards and enable compounding returns with next to no effort from users. This is a great method for maximizing your passive income strategy.
More trading opportunities are enabled thanks to the elastic supply nature of aBNBb, meaning that you could potentially buy aBNBb at a discount on a Decentralized Exchange and redeem it (unstake it) on Ankr Staking to extract its fair value back in up to 7 days (the BNB liquid staking unbonding period).
Contribute to the security of the BSC network
Staking with BNB liquid staking allows you to play an important role in boosting the network’s security as a whole. Ankr’s BNB staking system distributes staked tokens intelligently across the BSC ecosystem to help the network achieve optimal decentralization. Diversity and decentralization of active validators both ensure the network remains as secure as possible.
