Stakin To Discontinue on Polkadex and KILT

After careful consideration, the Stakin team has decided to discontinue our validator services for both KILT Protocol and Polkadex. We will be moving from the networks on the 31st of July 2022 and would like to urge our delegators to redelegate to another validator(s). It is important to note that you stop receiving staking rewards if you fail to remove your nomination when the Stakin validator node goes offline – unless you are already nominating a few validators

We'd like to thank our validators for their support & we look forward to continuing our validator services for over 34 different Proof-of-Stake networks.

Stakin To Offer Staking Services for Powerledger

We are pleased to announce that Stakin has been added to the Powerledger validator set, where he will help develop and support the blockchain ecosystem. Powerledger is a permissioned blockchain platform based on Solana that enables peer-to-peer (P2P) energy tracking and trading and environmental commodity trading. Because it is based on Solana, Powerledger can scale up to 50,000+ transactions per second while consuming very little energy.

It enables users to meet their sustainability goals by tracking, tracing, and trading renewable energy.

Stakin Joins Staking Rewards Verified Provider Program

Stakin is dedicated to providing our institutional and retail clients with high-quality noncustodial staking solutions. As a result, we're excited to announce that we're among the first batch of verified staking providers to join the Staking Rewards "Verified Provider" program, which launched on June 16th, 2022. Staking Rewards is the leading data provider in the Proof-of-Stake ecosystem for staking and crypto-growth tools. The data provider was tracking 215 yield-bearing assets and over 232 trusted providers at the time of writing.

The certification process was carried out with great care and in close collaboration with the staking providers. It focuses on jurisdictional compliance, insurance, and the commitment to participate in various processes such as governance, customer service, MEV policies, and the staking services provided. Stakin is relieved to have received a 96 percent after a rigorous screening process. We would like to express our gratitude to Staking Rewards for their efforts. We hope to see more verified staking providers join us as Proof-of-Stake becomes the dominant consensus mechanism and staking matures.

DISCLAIMER: This is not financial advice. Staking, delegation, and cryptocurrencies involve a high degree of risk, and there is always the possibility of loss, including the failure of all staked digital assets. Additionally, delegators are at risk of slashing in case of security or liveness faults on some protocols. We advise you to do your due diligence before choosing a validator.
