At least, what are the risks of staking Crypto?
Staking and cryptocurrencies investment involves a high degree of risk and there is always the possibility of loss, including the loss of all staked digital assets. Additionally, delegators are at risk of slashing in case of security or liveness faults on BPoS protocols.
Anyways, is crypto staking profitable? Staking is nearly as profitable as the mining or trading of cryptocurrencies, and without risk. All you have to do is stake (buy & hold) some coins in order to get added to the mining pool. As for profits, the actual profits you can make from staking will depend on how much you vest and for how long.
Finally, should I keep crypto on Coinbase?
It's an exchange, but it does have a built-in wallet, yes. So, you can keep your crypto on the Coinbase platform, if you wish. However, it is not recommended. I would definitely advise you to move your crypto from Coinbase once you have bought it, as exchange wallets are the least safe types of wallets.
