  • Most articles I've found on the topic are extremely basic and focused around investing. I'm trying to understand if there's a difference between the 2 concepts. What I understand through staking is a contract that at its core allows users to lock in a certain amount of fungible tokens that they then accumulate interest on. I've seen yield farming described the same way, except people usually mention that stakeholders are incentivized to participate in the process by receiving fees from certain transactions. I guess that makes sense, and I've seen a few contract examples that implement this basic idea (here or here, however they don't really focus on the staking/rewards pool/incentive side of things (how do the token owners & stakeholders benefit from the whole process).
