Are my funds (ADA) safe?
Staking is COMPLETELY SAFE. While staking, your ADA remains inside of YOUR WALLET and COMPLETELY UNDER YOUR CONTROL. You can stop staking at any time or stake to a different pool whenever you wish. Staking is kinda like holding up a sign saying “I lend my support to that team!” (i.e. the staking pool) As a result of your support, you get rewarded. Simple as that.
