TL;DR: Staking is listing one’s ADA as available to be selected for signing a block
Anyone with ADA can participate in writing the Cardano blockchain, in proportion to the quantity of ADA held. The more ADA you have, the more blocks you will be asked to sign. As an incentive for ADA holders to participate, each signed block entitles you to a reward (in ADA).
