A boom of “picks and shovels” companies catering to Proof-of-Stake cryptocurrencies has emerged as a leading market narrative for 2019. At the center of this burgeoning industry lies the Staking-as-a-Service model, a product of protocols like Tezos, Decred, and Cosmos mandating a minimum threshold amount for asset staking.
