With the Ethereum Merge on the horizon, everybody is talking about staking – a process whereby crypto holders put their digital assets to work and earn passive income without needing to sell them.

Episode 30 of CopperCasts welcomes Lorien Gabel, CEO at one of the most important players in the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) space, Figment. Founded in 2018, Figment is a Canadian-based PoS infrastructure provider, offering institutional staking and supports various projects with infrastructure and services.

In this conversation, Lorien and CopperCasts host, Tyler Kenyon, discuss all things staking and the misconceptions around it, what the Ethereum Merge really means for investors, and also how global regulation of staking is evolving.

Make sure to also check out Lorien’s Show & Tell on our Youtube channel to hear his explanation as to why over the past two years, PoS has been gaining traction on PoW, and why going forward, Lorien expects PoS to remain the dominant consensus mechanism.
