When deciding to stake your ATOM, you are delegating to a validator node. By delegating to StakeSeeker validator nodes, you help secure the native Cosmos network. The more ATOM that is delegated to these validators, the more transactions the validators will be able to approve and validate on the Cosmos blockchain network. When staking your ATOM, you will accumulate rewards generated by the validator nodes from the blockchain network protocols for successful transaction validation activity in the form of the native tokens. If you are planning to hold on to ATOM for a longer term investment, delegating will help you accumulate more ATOM while contributing to the health of the network.
