    So basically we're using the term "validators" instead of "banks". Right?

    Sounds like a Huge Greed and Power Trip by the guys at the top for sure. Rich get richer and can do what they want with the coin

    don't you give up control of your coins when you stake your coins to create a masternode?

    One of the best interviews into Ethereum tech ive seen. An interviewer with insight and charm asking great questions that make the interloquetor feels home.

    Stake United is a good place to stake POS coins: what I have seen making after staking five different coins, including DVRS three times, Staking United has an easy interface and fast deposits and withdrawals.Plus, Stake United has a large number of members and coins, so they have daily ROI, which can be up to 20% daily!Plus they provide compounding interest - which means you get your ROI % based not only on your initial stake, but also on stake rewards received.
