Hello Stakin Community! 👋
Welcome back to our monthly dispatch. In November, we've seen exciting progress with some news about Polygon 2.0, formed key partnerships, and new milestones. In this edition, we’ll cover key themes such as DVT, recent events we attended like Staking Summit, innovations at Chainlink, and more. Let's jump in.
Polygon 2.0 and POL Token 🚀
Polygon is moving towards its 2.0 upgrade, and the new POL token and migration contracts are already active on the mainnet. We at Stakin are also preparing something special related to this update. It’s designed to give you important insights and keep you informed about Polygon's latest developments. Follow our socials and watch this newsletter for the upcoming announcement.
Understanding the DVT Impact 🔍
What's the buzz about DVT? Our latest article lays out the importance of Distributed Validator Technology. This piece also explains complex concepts and offers a competitive analysis – analyzing protocols such as SSV, Obol, Diva, and SafeStake, highlighting how DVT can improve security and efficiency in processes like DeFi and liquid staking. If you're into tech details of what’s coming to Ethereum Staking, this article is a must-read.
Istanbul Staking Summit Insights 🌐
Our founder, Edouard Lavidalle, took to the panel stage at the Staking Summit to discuss the influx of institutional capital into staking, alongside pioneers in the industry. For those who missed it, the panel's insights are not to be overlooked.

A Month of Strategic Alliances 🤝
November brought us some exciting partnerships, all poised for significant advancements in the blockchain industry and some of these partnerships were:
Stakin x Claystack: Claystack is revolutionizing Liquid Staking and DeFi. As a Claystack infrastructure partner, we are operating a SSV dedicated operator.
Stakin x EigenLayer: Leveraging Ethereum’s staking and security, EigenLayer aims to boost the utility of staked ETH with Restaking and security of the ecosystem.
Stakin x Router Protocol: Router Protocol is a modular & composable framework for Cross-chain interoperability.
Stakin x Union: Union is pioneering with its zero-knowledge interoperability layer, seamlessly bridging appchains, layer 1, and layer 2 networks.
We are excited to partner with these innovative projects and are eager to witness the results of our collaboration in their upcoming testnets and mainnet releases.
Chainlink CCIP Explained 🔗
As we transition towards digitizing all things on-chain, from currency, commodities, and securities to trading cards, art, real estate, and more, the question becomes not just creating these tokenized assets on the blockchain and letting them out in the wild. Rather, how can they become useful or even generate an in-demand market?
In the growing world of on-chain digitization, Chainlink's Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol (CCIP) plays a crucial role. Our latest piece talks about what CCIP is and its importance for capital markets. Jump into our article for the full scoop on how CCIP is rewriting the rules of capital markets.
Federico's Spotlight at Crypto Expo Milan 💡
Federico, our BD Head, spoke at Crypto Expo Milan last week where he discussed staking in detail including its critical role in blockchain ecosystems. He also discussed the heated debate on Layer 2 scaling solutions, contrasting Optimistic and ZK rollups. It was a session that offered fresh insight into blockchain technology's future. Below is the snippet from the event.
Thank you for joining us on this ride for our November round-up. Stay tuned for our upcoming updates, and let's continue shaping the future of blockchain together. 🥳
