The locked staking program is scheduled to run for 150 days, meaning that Dogecoin owners who subscribed will have this position for this number of days. Binance says it will return staked digital assets/digital currencies to users' spot wallets at the end of the agreed staking period.
Dogecoin uses the proof-of-work mechanism, in which miners solve a computational problem to verify transactions, as opposed to the proof-of-stake (PoS) mechanism, which requires validators to stake or hold a minimum number of coins to validate transactions in exchange for rewards. Dogecoin is currently the second largest PoW blockchain after Bitcoin.
Therefore, DOGE owners are not able to stake their coins individually or through an exchange on a network in exchange for rewards.
In the past, Dogecoin proponents have questioned the inner workings of Binance staking products dedicated to proof-of-work coins. Hence the need for new users to understand the workings of Binance's "locked products" becomes quite essential.
At the time of publication, Dogecoin was trading at $0.138, down 5.16% in the last 24 hours. The biggest dog-themed cryptocurrency is up 108% in the past week.
