Could someone please explain staking to me?

I don’t get the staking mechanism. Am I only locking up tokens and simply receive rewards? How is that staking? I mean in a usual staking process I have to lock my tokens as a requirement to participate in consensus. Therefore I will be rewarded. In IOTA it seems I only lock up tokens and do nothing. How does that provide any value? Any link to a technical resource would be appreciated
