1. Is staking safe?

Staking is a process that is carried out in a totally decentralized way, at no time does the node operator have access to the funds since everything works through Smart Contracts. Therefore, it is considered to be a safe process because it is non-custodial, decentralized.

2. Who manages the rewards that are generated? Where do these rewards come from?

The rewards come directly from the minting of new tokens on the networks that use consensus PoS or DPoS whose inflation values ​​are written in the Smart Contract, without intermediaries. These staking rewards are intended to engage users to keep their balance in the wallet and thus help increase network security.

3. Can I withdraw the balance at any time?

The user can decide to stop delegating their tokens anytime. Únicamente existen unos periodos de desactivación conocidos como "enfriamiento" necesarios para que el staking se desactive completamente y cuyos tiempos varían de una blockchain a otra.

4. What is the difference between staking and keeping coins in the wallet (Hodl)?

In both cases you keep your coins until you decide, the difference is that during all that time you keep your coins in the wallet you would be receiving periodic rewards if you decide to staking, however, hodlers get nothing in return for keeping their balance.
