What is Stacking? How does it work?

Stacking, a critical part of the Stacks network, is the process of STX holders locking STX temporarily to support the network’s security and consensus. This helps Stacks reach consensus, stay secure, and process transactions. As a reward, Stackers earn the Bitcoin that miners transfer as part of the Proof of Transfer consensus mechanism.
