Staking is the act of delegating your cryptocurrency to a validator pool to earn rewards. Delegated tokens are typically locked for a set period of time and are used in the block mining process of a blockchain via a mechanism known as Proof-of-Stake (PoS).

07.What is auto-scaling?
This feature allows you to automatically increase your node's resources, such as disk size when the current configuration reaches a predefined threshold of resource utilization. With auto-scaling, you don’t have to worry about downtime caused by user influx as your app will scale automatically when the demand for more resources increases.
08.What is Block Watch?
BlockWatch is an InfStones in-app feature that allows you to track the status of your hosted node and blockchain APIs in real time. BlockWatch lets you set up alarms for various node states, such as when it’s running or in a halted mode, when its resource usage is above a certain threshold, and many other options. It also allows you to send notifications via SMS, email, and even Slack channels if an alarm is triggered.
