CertiK $CTK Staking Guide

At Stakin, we haven’t been sitting still regardless of the anticipation of Christmas. If you feel like you’d like to start staking CertiK, have a look at our latest guide: How To Stake CertiK $CTK with Deepwallet.

StaFi rToken Whitepaper Release

The Proof-of-Stake ecosystem is ever-growing, which creates the challenge of helping validators unleash the liquidity of staking assets while ensuring the original chain’s security. StaFi’s rToken establishes the possibility of having staked assets circulate without the need to unstake. For the entire white paper, click here.

Band Protocol Collaboration With Injective Labs

Injective Protocol, the first layer-2 DEX that unlocks the full potential of decentralized derivatives and borderless DeFi, has partnered with Band Protocol, Terra, and Mirror Protocol to access the $90 trillion stock market in a permissionless manner. They’ve created a borderless decentralized platform for equities and commodities that have been made possible with Terra’s synthetic DeFi platform and the highly scalable and secure decentralized oracle provided by Band Protocol.

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.
