📰 Staked in the media
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.
“We 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, “between DOT, XTZ and ETH we have over $1 billion of assets” that can be staked.
