We have some great news for all of the stakers of the Stratis network. Two of our community members (@demon and @olcko) have made a guide about how to stake your $STRAT on a Raspberry Pi. Special thanks to both of you! We encourage our community to keep taking great initiatives like this. The guide can be found over here.
The $STRAT token is a Proof-of-Stake (POS) token with limited emission and a low inflation rate. Proof of Stake attempts to provide consensus and double spend prevention. With Proof of Stake, the amount of $STRAT you hold influences the amount of reward you receive.
In return for staking your $STRAT, you get rewarded $STRAT tokens. This reward is offered because you help to keep the network stable and secure. It is possible to stake on almost any device, a laptop a desktop etc. Some of the known issues with using a desktop or laptop are that they are power consuming, hardware performance degrades over time and your $STRAT can be less secure on those devices.
An answer for these issues could be found by staking on a Raspberry Pi.
With the Raspberry Pi you have a machine that costs less electricity, has lower purchase costs, it’s small and its very secure.
If you are planning on starting to stake your $STRAT on a Raspberry Pi (a Raspberry Pi 3 in the guide) you can follow the guide step by step to get started. If you encounter any problems or have additional questions regarding staking on a Raspberry Pi please come and join our Discord and ask away.
If you are interested about the staking rewards and statistics about the $STRAT token, please take a look at our Blockchain Explorer. To work with the latest Stratis Wallet, please go to our website.
Happy staking to all of you and a big thank you to @demon and @olcko and all of you that are staking and helping to keep the network secure and stable!
