    A stake is a certain number of tokens in the user’s possession. The user can leave part of this amount (or the full amount) as a pledge — as a guarantee of the fulfillment of his obligations.

    The staking mechanism allows block producers (validators and their delegates) to ensure consensus on transactions and receive incentives for fair block production. The stake is not needed for day-to-day onchain transactions or users, but only for consensus participants.
