Blockchains like Litecoin use the proof-of-work mechanism, in which miners solve a computational problem to verify transactions, instead of the proof-of-stake (PoS) mechanism, which requires market participants, or validators, to stake or hold a minimum number of coins to validate transactions in exchange for rewards.

Likewise, unlike other blockchains that employ proof of work or proof of stake, XRP Ledger (XRPL) uses a consensus mechanism in which selected servers known as validators agree on the sequence and outcome of XRP transactions.

Therefore, holders are not able to stake their coins individually or through an exchange on a network in exchange for rewards. On its website, Binance offers a Frequently Asked Questions section that explains the DeFi staking procedure for non-proof-of-stake coins.

As reported by U.Today, Mercuryo, a global payment network, recently added XRP support. In an announcement, it was stated that XRP had been integrated into the Mercuryo payments network, allowing customers to access the asset for cross-border payments.
