A recent study conducted by analysts Mike McGlone and Jamie Douglas revealed that altcoins Polkadot and Cosmos offer better staking yields than Ethereum.

According to their report, Ethereum has a strong hold over the crypto market thanks to its robust fee structure and issuance policy.

The analysts compared several PoS Layer-1 blockchains with Ethereum (ETH). They discovered that two altcoins: Polkadot (DOT) and Cosmos (ATOM) provide higher staking rewards than Ethereum.

In their words,

“Polkadot trades at a 0.77% premium while Cosmos is at a 0.10% premium. The assets which trade at negative spreads may be victims of mispricing. Inflation/issuance for these assets may need to undergo a radical reduction, similar to Ethereum, to attract more capital.”

It is worth noting that the staking rewards offered by Near Protocol (NEAR) are not that far behind Ethereum’s.

The analysts drew parallels between staking and corporate bonds. They believe that the staking yields could increase by early 2023 once the liquidity of central banks improves.

They added,

“Given the volatility and newness of the demand for smart contract use, staking assets could be considered as equivalent to junk bonds. Yields for proof-of-stake are similar to corporate bonds in that they’re tied to the fees/cash flows of the network/company.”
