What is Crypto.com Soft Staking? 

Crypto.com Soft Staking is another way to earn rewards simply by holding a balance in your Crypto.com Exchange wallet

Note: The Exchange wallet is different than your App wallet. For instant and feeless transfer of funds from your App to your Exchange wallet, please follow these steps.

How is Soft Staking different than CRO Staking? 

CRO Staking” is different as it requires you to lock CRO for 180 days. CRO Staking is rewarded with it's own range of benefits: rebates, up to 10% APR, & Syndicate access. Staked CRO can not be withdrawn until the committed 180 days duration is complete. For more information, visit here.

Soft Staking offers more flexibility by rewarding you based on your daily Exchange wallet balances with no-commitment period required, while extra rewards apply to those who are actively CRO staking.
