Coinbase announced that it has expanded its staking offers in its portfolio to include Cardano (ADA), the seventh-largest crypto by market capitalization. 

“More Cardano. More staking. We have officially expanded staking offerings to include $ADA so you can begin earning rewards on your crypto!”

According to reports, the idea of adding Cardano to the staking offering is to offer its users an asset that aims to enable smart contracts to allow developers to build a wide range of decentralized finance (DeFi) applications, new crypto tokens, games and more.

There are already other ways to stake Cardano, but Coinbase reportedly offers an easy and secure way for any retail user who wants to actively participate in the Cardano network and earn rewards.
