The term Staking describes the commitment of an investor to support a Blockchain network with their cryptocurrency assets for a certain period of time. The longer the stakers commit their assets, the greater the subsequent rewards.

By the end of the selected staking period, all stakers will receive the original assets they deposited into the Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO), as well as any rewards they earned during the staking period.
