Staking Feature on Trust Wallet

The Trust Wallet app allows users to stake their cryptocurrencies from the app at the click of a button easily. The Trust Wallet provides APR of as high as 11% on different assets. The Trust Wallet app supports staking for these cryptos: BNB, TRX, XTZ, ATOM, LUNA, VET, CLO, KAVA, TOMO, IOTX, and ALGO at the time of writing.

The staking feature is very useful as users can earn a passive income from staking rather than simply storing their cryptocurrencies on the Trust Wallet app. It is a great method to earn an income from idle assets that you are not currently trading actively. 

Trust wallet is an easy-to-use wallet for both Ethereum and Binance tokens.

It is an easy solution to store all your assets in one wallet and is supported by most decentralized exchanges where you can trade easily at the click of a button by connecting to your Trust Wallet wallet. The wallet also provides support for storing NFTs and currently supports NFTs on the Ethereum and Binance chain. More cross-chain support will be added in the future. However, the wallet extension does not support browsers currently and users must use it via an app on the Android or iOS store.
