Baking in Tezos: A Form of Staking
Baking is a process used by Tezos to add new blocks of transactions to the blockchain.
What is baking?
Baking is a process used by Tezos to add new transaction blocks to the blockchain. It is a system of delegated bid proof, where bakers are rewarded for each block baked.
Since we are discussing the process of baking , let’s say you decide to become a baker. Bakers, by performing full-notes to maintain the network, create new blocks in the Tezos blockchain and are therefore rewarded with additional XTZ tokens.
In addition, there are origin accounts that can be delegated. These accounts cannot become part of the baking process, and there is a special secret key to participate in the consensus algorithm. Keep in mind that delegates can also be reassigned.
