Coinbase currently only supports staking for Tezos. They support trading for a very limited amount of cryptocurrencies. Coinbase is always adding more coins to their platform. It is likely that Coinbase will expand and support in the future.
Currently staking is only supported in certain countries: France, The Netherlands, Spain, The United Kingdom, and The United States (Excluding residents of New York and Hawaii). Additionaly to Stake Chainlink you’ll have to verify your identity and own a certain minimum of the cryptocurrency you want to stake
No, Coinbase Pro does not currently allow users to stake Chainlink. Coinbase Pro is unlikely to implement it. The base Coinbase platform allows Tezos staking but it’s not supported in Coinbase Pro. If you plan to participate in Chainlink staking it is likely to be implemented in Coinbase before Coinbase Pro.
No, Kraken does not currently support Chainlink staking. If you’re trying to figure out how to start staking your Chainlink on Kraken you’ll have to wait.
Kraken supports staking for 3 different cryptocurrencies, Tezos (XTZ), Cosmos (ATOM), and Dash (DASH). While this is still more than Coinbase, it is much lower than Binance.
To stake on Kraken your account must be verified to at least the Starter level. This requires your account to enable two factor authentication, have a verified email, verify your full name, input your date of birth, verify your phone number, and confirm your address.
Not currently, Chainlink staking is not supported on Binance. If you’re trying to figure out how to stake your Chainlink (LINK), you’ll have to wait. Binance is likely to implement staking support before Coinbase, as they support staking for many more cryptocurrencies.
Binance supports staking for 24 different cryptocurrencies. They are on the forefront of staking. Currently they charge no fees for their staking, which is very uncommon. The complete list of what you can stake on Binance is:
|Algorand Staking Rewards|
|Harmony ONE Staking|
|Stratis Staking Rewards|
|QTUM Staking Rewards|
|Komodo Staking Rewards|
|Vechain Staking Rewards|
|Ontology Staking Rewards|
|NEO Staking Rewards|
|Stellar Inflation Rewards|
Binance has not outlined any restrictions for staking. It is up to you to determine the legality and your personal eligibility.
Ultimately Chainlink staking operates very differently than most coins that exchanges currently support staking for. Exchanges currently support Proof of Stake coins that are much more straightforward than Chainlink’s staking implementation. It will most likely take a much longer time for them to implement staking.
