Investing in PP's DeFi Staking pools are being run by a number of DeFi projects, where users can easily participate as validators and share returns. Staking can be divided into two types: individual staking of tokens and staking of liquidity tokens, both of which provide rewards. When participating in these types of pools and committing certain tokens, there are a few risks to be aware of. Poor projects may see a drop in price, and potential losses may eventually outweigh expected profits. Furthermore, smart contract flaws can allow cybercriminals to steal tokens that participants have committed for staking. Stakers will be unable to withdraw funds if the pool requires tokens to be locked up for a certain period of time. The locking of tokens, on the other hand, is a benefit because it reduces sell pressure, creates loyal holders, and is the primary reason why projects provide staking opportunities.
