A brief introduction to staking, why it matters for this project, and how to stake your $BOTTO tokens.
A simple way to understand staking would be seeing this as a 'deposit'. You 'deposit' (stake) your newly acquired $BOTTO into the Botto app.
In return, you generate Voting Points (VP). You are able to spend VP on voting for your favorite art pieces, which subsequently lets you influence Botto's artistic direction!
Staking is relatively straightforward and is done in three easy steps.
