Staking Cryptocurrencies means your locking up your cryptocurrency tokens for a period of time, while they are locked up you receive income but you can not use your tokens.
Proof of Stake(PoS) is an alternative method to Proof of Work(PoW) which is the original consensus algorithm implemented by Bitcoin and it is a more efficient and scalable consensus algorithm.
Proof of Work requires miners to solve a cryptographic challenge, when they solve the challenge they are entitled to produce the next block yielding a block reward. It can consume huge amounts of energy as the network grows causing the difficulty of the challenge to increase. Miners use optimised hardware to solve the challenge, the network is extremely secure but has a number of limitations.
Block producers generate blocks on the network as well as take part in the consensus of block production. Most networks will require 2/3 of the producers to validate the transaction before they become confirmed.
Block producers can run on bare metal or cloud based infrastructure. The hardware needs to be reliable and high specification to ensure blocks are produced quickly and can validate other blocks produced on the network. Most block producers need high IOPS, good CPU and high performance network to ensure they can take part in consensus.
