Kyber Network Update - July 7, 2020
  • The Kyber Network Katalyst Protocol upgrade and KyberDAO are both now live. With this upgrade, KNC holders can now stake their tokens on the KyberDAO and govern the protocol by voting on important proposals and parameters, while earning rewards (in ETH) for their efforts. KNC holders can delegate the power to vote to Kyber Network stake pools.
  • KNC holders who want to stake their tokens, but don’t have the time to participate regularly in voting in every epoch can delegate their voting power to a 3rd-party ‘pool’ operator to vote on their behalf. Staked operates a non-custodial pool to make this process easy.
  • Currently, 65% of the exchange fees will be allocated to voting rewards, 30% to reserve rebates and 5% to KNC burning. KNC holders will be responsible for voting on the fee allocation parameters going forward.

Please contact a Staked representative to learn more about Kyber Network staking!

SKALE Update - July 1, 2020
  • Phase one of the SKALE mainnet went live yesterday, June 30, 2020. Phase one is a restricted mainnet that will not have any bounty, transfers, or active issuance.
  • Phase two does not have an official launch date yet. Phase two will launch following the token sale. The network will run in a delegated state with no token liquidity, but issuance and bounty will be live and distributed to token holders that are staking and securing the network. At this point, validators that completed onboarding and successful participation in the testnet will be running the network.
  • The network will open up in entirety to all developers, and validators as soon as it is feasible during Phase 3.  Following the 90 Day Proof of Use Period, the network will turn into an open state where tokens that are unlocked can be transferred and exchanged. Phase three does not have an official date yet.

Please contact a Staked representative to learn more about SKALE staking!

RAY Now Incorporates Liquidity Incentives

Posted by Staked on Jun 26, 2020 1:32:50 PM

TLDR: RAY depositors get all the benefits of supplying funds to the underlying protocols, including any liquidity incentives.

Compound recently changed their distribution model, adding “liquidity incentives”. Suppliers to Compound now earn both interest and COMP, Compound’s governance token. COMP has proved highly attractive, making the COMP portion of the yield very meaningful for liquidity suppliers.

We wanted to make it clear how RAY handles these incentives. RAY depositors get all the benefits of supplying funds to the underlying protocols, including any liquidity incentives.

RAY’s allocation models now account for the incremental yield generated by liquidity incentives. RAY adds the current value of the COMP earned by suppliers to its interest rate estimates, allocating to the highest overall yield. RAY will collect and sell that COMP via a DEX, adding it to the yield earned by RAY depositors. Initially this will happen weekly. We will later upgrade RAY contracts to happen more regularly.

Liquidity incentives seem here to stay. Market makers Curve and Balancer recently launched a similar program, and there are rumors that other prominent DeFi protocols will introduce similar programs. RAY will seamlessly determine the overall yield associated with your deposits, ensuring that your funds are always deposited with the highest yielding option.

We’ve made two other big changes: converting RAY tokens to the ERC-20 standard and reducing gas costs significantly. Next up: integrations with your favorite automated market makers, allowing you to earn both lending yield and trading fees simultaneously.

RAY (Robo-Advisor for Yield) Scheduled Maintenance Update

Posted by Staked on Jun 17, 2020 11:40:18 AM

Scheduled Maintenance Update

RAY is getting an upgrade! We've converted RAY to the ERC-20 standard, had those changes audited by Trail of Bits, and are getting ready to roll it out. 

As a result, RAY (Robo-Advisor for Yield) will be undergoing scheduled maintenance on June 18, 2020. Safety of user funds is our priority, so while this upgrade should take 2-3 hours, it could take as long as 12 hours. You can still view your tokens, but minting, depositing, and withdrawing will be paused during this period.

For questions, please reach out in the RAY Discord Channel.

Synthetix Rewards on Auto Pilot: Never Let Rewards Expire Again

Posted by Staked on May 18, 2020 11:09:22 AM

Frame 8.64 (1)

SNX stakers earn inflation funded SNX rewards for staking and transaction fees in sUSD from the Synthetix exchange. However, rewards expire if they aren’t claimed manually during the claimable period. And in order to collect rewards, stakers need to maintain a target collateral ratio (c-ratio) by managing their debt balance.

Today, Staked is launching a delegation service that automates the entire process of reward claiming, re-staking and c-ratio management. Using the recently deployed SIP 10 for Upgraded Delegate Powers, the delegation service automatically claims staking rewards, re-stakes to maximize compounding, and issues or burns debt to ensure c-ratios remain above the target.

The entire rewards and c-ratio management process is non-custodial. All rewards are claimed directly to the delegator’s address. sUSD debt can only be issued or burned to maintain the target c-ratio. Additionally, delegation provides SNX stakers with a better security model since they won’t need to connect online anymore to claim rewards or adjust the c-ratio, and SNX funds can remain in cold storage.

To delegate rewards management to Staked, please visit the Synthetix Delegation Dashboard.

Using the Synthetix Delegation Dashboard

1. Visit Staked’s Synthetix Delegation Dashboard and connect a wallet with your SNX hodlings. 

Screenshot-1

 

2. Upon connecting your wallet for the first time, your SNX holdings and sUSD debt will populate within 15 minutes. Select one or both permissions and click delegate. If you are returning to your dashboard, you will be taken directly to step #3.Screenshot 1

3. Congratulations! You should now see your holdings, c-ratio, claimed rewards, debt level, and permissions.

 Screenshot 2

Please note that SNX holders will still need to use the Synthetix Mintr application for SNX staking, and the Synthetix Exchange for active debt management. To learn more about managing debt in the Synthetix Network, please read the following guide. For Synthetix rewards reporting, SNX stakers need to sign up for a Staked account.
