βœ… Solana Rewards

Get excited SOL holders! Staking rewards are expected to be activated in the next week! The community governance process to enable inflation (and staking rewards) on mainnet started on 01/29, is expected to be completely as early as Tuesday 02/09, but more likely by 02/15.

The proposed inflation rate is 8% in year 1, and set to decrease 15% year-over-year. The current stake rate is 29.7%, (144.9M staked SOL / 488.6 total current SOL supply), resulting in a staking yield of 26.9% (.08 inflation / .297 stake rate).

February 2 ETH2 slashing event - Post-mortem

Posted by Staked on Feb 3, 2021 12:34:16 PM

TLDR

Staked chased technical performance over double-signing robustness and that’s not a good trade off. No customers were harmed in this interaction but it was an expensive lesson for Staked and we are sharing our learnings in case they help others. 

What happened: 

75 Staked-run validators were slashed on February 2. This was a Staked technical issue, so our customers will be fully compensated. But what went wrong and how can you learn from our mistakes? 

What went wrong:

We made the mistake of chasing attestation performance at the expense of reliability in attestation. Even though we have an internal mantra to always choose robustness over downtime, we still went awry. 

ETH2 has led to a new set of performance criteria. The block explorers all publish attestation rate (the percentage of time you successfully sign blocks when you are scheduled to do so). This impacts customer revenue, so we've been very focused our customers earn the highest yields. That means a sharp focus on this chart: 

Performance

Over the past six weeks, we have rolled out a set of performance improvements to deliver a higher attestation rate. We test those using a "canary" environment and roll them out to a broader set of validators.  

We’ve identified a number of items that helped us improve significantly, two of which matter for this discussion: 

  1. Prysm’s on-client slashing protection database was a heavy user of I/O and causing attestation misses (they've since fixed this). Since we have we have a separate layer of double signing protection that uses Hashicorp Consul, we stopped persisting this across restarts of the validator clients. 
  2. Ensuring that beacon node instances have the right ratio of signing validators and are highly performant. 

This combination led to our undoing. We attempted to scale up the number of beacon nodes to get better performance. While we had tested in our canary environment, the production load that we were trying to alleviate behaved differently, causing our validators to restart more frequently than we'd seen in testing. Because we had disabled the persistence of #1 above, these validators signed a second version of the same blocks: a major issue that led to a slashing event. 

What's the lesson learned?

Obviously, we should not have disabled the persistence of Prysm's database in pursuit of better performance. The performance gains we achieved weren't worth the additional risk we inadvertently added. While this seems obvious, we thought we had reliable protection via Consul. But a belt-and-suspenders approach here would have been more prudent. 

Testing for scale is hard. We should have ensured new beacon nodes were fully-synced and connected to lots of peers before allowing them to connect to validator clients. This is hard to do on existing testnets, but we should have developed an internal version to test this. 

What are we doing differently?

We are now persisting the Prysm slashing DB to validators running in all five regions, so this issue can’t happen again.

We have instituted new changes to the way we deploy new beacon nodes such that they can't participate with validators until they are fully-synced. 

What happens to impacted clients?

Staked will reimburse clients for both slashed ETH and lost rewards. We will contact impacted clients with details on how this will happen. 

On a more personal note, Seth (CTO) and Tim(CEO) drafted this, this sucks and we're sorry. We let customers down and need to do better. We will get better and deliver the reliability you should expect from Staked.

Cryptocurrency Staking Rewards Top $20 Billion in 2020: Report

 
The launch of Ethereum 2.0 in December 2020, along with the rise of alternative staking chains like Polkadot and Solana, has helped grow the proof-of-stake blockchain market cap to more than $175 billion, according to Staked’s report. And the firm expects that figure to keep growing in 2021.
β€œEvery proof-of-stake blockchain project needs to ensure that the returns paid to participants is lucrative enough to tie up their holdings and bear slashing risks. Otherwise, their entire security model is at risk,” Staked CEO Tim Ogilvie told Decrypt.

β€œI'd expect the yield from staking to come down over time as people get comfortable with the risks and staking gets easier. But I also think the most successful projects will actively think about β€˜monetary policy’ for their chains, ensuring the right balance between security and inflation.”

Staked found that staking across various blockchains earned an average weighted yield of 11.2% per year, a healthy return compared to the less than 3% average dividend yield provided by the S&P 500 over the last decade, according to Investopedia.

Fireblocks Rolls Out Staking Rewards for Eth 2.0, Polkadot and Tezos

Announced Thursday, Fireblocks is partnering with staking infrastructure providers Staked and Blockdaemon to offer hosted proof-of-stake (PoS) services for Ethereum 2.0 and the popular Polkadot (DOT) and Tezos (XTZ) tokens.

Fireblocks, which raised $30 million in funding in November last year, uses a technique called multi-party computation (MPC) that protects cryptographic keys by splitting them into pieces, and which the company says is well suited to the dynamic business of blockchain token staking.

β€œWe are launching staking wallets to Fireblocks customers who collectively hold a significant balance of crypto assets,” Fireblocks CEO Michael Shaulov said in an interview. He said that while the majority of Fireblocks’ over 165 clients have bitcoin, β€œbetween DOT, XTZ and ETH we have over $1 billion of assets” that can be staked.

Valid Points: A Year in Review by Your Ethereum 2.0 Staking Experts

Our first contribution is from Tim Ogilvie, the founder and CEO of Staked. Staked helps investors earn yield from staking and DeFi without taking custody of their crypto assets.  

β€œMy favorite Ethereum chart shows the daily gas usage. I love it because it’s one part of the great story that I expect will propel ETH over the next few years. There are three legs to the stool: 

  1. Our chart. People are using ETH with increasing frequency, driving increased gas demand.
  2. EIP-1559, introducing Fee Burns. This is an upcoming Ethereum improvement that will take all of the gas demand and use it to burn ETH. The more ETH gets used, the more ETH supply gets burned.
  3. Eth 2: Ethereum’s transition to proof-of-stake, allowing for low issuance of new supply while providing strong security guarantees.

β€œBitcoin has an amazing story as an asset with a fixed supply of 21 million BTC. Ethereum’s story has the potential to be even stronger. If gas usage exceeds supply issuance, you’ve now got a digital asset with a steadily declining supply.  

β€œMy 2021 prediction: This becomes the dominant story around ETH’s valuation and it drives significant price appreciation.”

U.S-based Staked, which provides non-custodial staking services for institutions and is the leading independent validator for Ethereum 2.0, is partnering with CoinDCX to support Ethereum 2.0 staking.

Bitcoin Transaction Fees Doubled This Week. Here’s Why

It is simply a case of more buying demand means more BTC transactions, which means higher fees, according to Tim Ogilvie, CEO of Staked, which provides institutions with infrastructure services for crypto assets.

So, when there’s an exceptional amount of activity on the Bitcoin network, miners hike up their fees to prioritize those who really want to process Bitcoin transactions.

MyEtherWallet Now Offers In-App Staking for Ethereum 2.0

MyEtherWallet Integrates Staked to Bring Eth2 Staking to MEW Web & Mobile Users

MyEtherWallet Now Supports Ethereum 2.0 Staking

One of Ethereum’s most popular software wallets, MyEtherWallet is joining other crypto businesses by giving users access to Ethereum 2.0 staking.

Through a partnership with node-hosting service Staked, MyEtherWallet now offers its browser and mobile wallet users the option to stake ETH tokens into the Ethereum 2.0 Beacon Chain deposit contract, a smart contract that lays the foundations for Ethereum’s revamped blockchain infrastructure.

MyEtherWallet β€œusers need to stake 32 ETH to participate. Staked will run a validator node for them, making it easy for the users who don’t have the technical knowledge to participate, so no further action is required on the user’s part,” MyEtherWallet CEO Kosala Hemachandra told CoinDesk.

Ether Capital Corporation Announces Initial Commitment to Staking on Ethereum 2.0

Publicly-Traded Ether Capital Begins Staking on an Ethereum 2.0 Node

Ether Capital Corporation (β€œEther Capital” or the β€œCompany”) (NEO:ETHC) announces that it has begun participating in staking on the newly launched Ethereum 2.0 network and has committed to running a validator node on the network.

Ether Capital’s validator has been running since Ethereum 2.0’s genesis block which was confirmed at approximately 7:00am ET on December 1, 2020.

Brian Mosoff, Ether Capital’s CEO, said: β€œThe launch of Ethereum 2.0 is an exciting and historic milestone in the digital asset space and we are thrilled to be part of it by running a validator. The transition to staking has been part of Ether Capital’s roadmap since inception and means that Ether holders are now able to generate an Ether-denominated return, or yield, by participating in network validation.”

Ether Capital has entered into an agreement with Staked, an industry leading blockchain services provider, to run its Ethereum 2.0 validator.

Tim Ogilvie, Staked’s CEO, said: β€œWe are excited to be working with the team at Ether Capital on running its validator. Staked has built a reputation for ease and reliability for proof of stake services and we are grateful for the trust that Ether Capital has put in us.”

 

β€œThis rally is largely driven by institutional buy-in,” said Tim Ogilvie, CEO of Staked, which provides institutions with infrastructure services for crypto assets. He pointed to hedge fund managers like Paul Tudor Jones and Stanley Druckenmiller including bitcoin in their broad investment strategies.


πŸ–₯️ Livepeer Explorer Update

The Livepeer explorer now includes a performance leaderboard for node operators. This update will provide greater visibility into validator performance.

πŸŒ‰ Secret Network Ethereum Bridge

Launching December 14th, the Secret Ethereum Bridge is a new DeFi primitive that brings the power of programmable privacy to ETH and ERC-20s at low cost.

secret

The bridge allows users to create synthetic (wrapped) ETH and ERC-20 tokens on Secret Network that can be used with full privacy, at lower cost. This is not only a huge improvement for privacy-conscious users of Ethereum and DeFi applications; it’s a critical step along our path to building a more secure, more accessible, and more usable global open financial ecosystem.

We are excited to be a bridge operator and look forward to continuing to support the Secret Network.
