What Is Bonding?

In Proof of Stake (PoS) systems, users who wish to participate in the network must stake a certain amount of tokens to become active. Bonding, which typically happens in a Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) system, is the process of a trader locking their digital assets to a validator’s node to receive a portion of the validator rewards.

Key Takeaway

Bonding is the act of a user locking their digital assets to someone else’s validator node for it to begin working.
