Stakin To Support Validator Services for deBridge

We are pleased to report that Stakin has been included to deBridge's validator set on Mainnet. To scale up protocols, deBridge provides a decentralized standard for cross-chain interoperability and liquidity transfers. Users and developers can utilize deBridge to bridge any arbitrary assets and data, as well as build new sorts of cross-chain interoperability apps using its decentralized infrastructure.

Please find the full announcement below.

Stakin To Support Staking for Axelar Network

Stakin is pleased to announce that we now provide active staking services for the Axelar Network. Axelar is a decentralized global interoperability network that connects all blockchain ecosystems, apps, assets, and users.

After a series of improvements in January 2022, the network stated that Mainnet would be available in February 2022. After the deployment phase is completed and the open, permissionless network is installed, Axelar's interoperability protocol will connect and facilitate asset transfers and information transit among leading blockchain networks such as Ethereum, Cosmos, Terra, Moonbeam, Fantom, and Avalanche. See the full announcement below.

Axelar Network Partners With Keplr Wallet

Axelar has formed a new alliance with Keplr, the largest Cosmos interchain wallet. The collaboration will connect the Keplr wallet into the Axelar network, allowing liquidity to be released inside the Cosmos ecosystem and beyond. Kepler enables users to manage their assets, access decentralized apps (DApps), and stake tokens from Secret Network, Cosmos Hub, Kava, and many other platforms from a single interface.

Users will be able to transact, stake, and participate in Axelar network governance via the Keplr web and mobile wallets as a result of this integration. Furthermore, the collaboration will enable asset transfers from the Axelar network to other Cosmos chains and back via IBC, which will be supported by both the Axelar network and the Keplr wallet.

ICON Commits $200M to Crypto’s First-Ever Interoperability Incentive Fund

On the 14th of January 2022, the ICON Foundation announced that they developed a 200M ICX (roughly $200M in today's dollars) Interoperability Incentive Program. This is one of the largest incentive funds in the blockchain industry, and it is the first to be exclusively dedicated to interoperability. The establishment of this fund is an important step in ensuring that ICON's Blockchain Transmission Protocol (BTP) is one of the most commonly utilized and adopted interoperability solutions.

Keplr Wallet To Support Juno, Axelar and Stargaze

On the 21st of January, staking support on Keplr Wallet for Juno, Axelar, and Stargaze went live. You can now stake your assets easily on the biggest decentralized Cosmos wallet.

Kava Mainnet 9 Launch!

On the 19th of January 2022, the Kava Mainnet 9 Launch was completed successfully. The Kava 9 Mainnet upgrade will connect Kava to the Cosmos and unlock new assets and earning opportunities with the integration of the IBC protocol.

Polkadex Crowd loan is Live!

Polkadex Crowd loan is currently open for business and collecting contributions. That means PDEX prizes await any Polkadexers who assist Polkadex in obtaining a Parachain slot.  To receive PDEX awards, all you really need is some DOT. This brief guide will explain how much PDEX you can obtain and the procedures you must take to obtain it.


ISCLAIMER: 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.
