Staking also provides monetary incentives to token holders in the form of staking rewards and yield farming by providing liquidity on automated market making exchanges e.g. Raydium.
Solana is currently (at the time of writing) the 8th biggest cryptocurrency by market cap. We think it's important to go where the users are as it's easier to bring players in if they are already within the ecosystem.
Solana invented a consensus called proof-of-history which makes it one of the fastest blockchains, and can handle up to 65,000 transactions-per-second (tps).
