📰 Staked Media Mentions 

CoinDesk: To Stake or No? That’s the Eth 2.0 Question
 

Stakers need to weigh the complexity of running nodes on a major chain with the risk of being slashed for failing to stay up persistently or for other issues such as double-signing. Ethereum 2.0 staking requires the commitment and hassle of maintaining a node for years. Those inclined to support network security and earn steady yield may still shy away from the obligations of regularly tending to their servers.

That’s where staking-as-a-service providers come in – and again people have choices to make. As with many areas of cryptocurrency, a core decision is whether to give up your asset to a provider, or to choose a non-custodial service instead. At my company, Staked, we believe investors should have help in earning yield without having to give up custody of their assets.

Decrypt: Ethereum 2.0 Is Set to Launch, But It Won’t Be Ready to Use

Ogilvie said that the most aggressive estimates for Phase 1 is six months and two years for Phase 2. “The more conservative estimates are significantly longer than that. So you're talking years before you have a full transition from ETH 1.0 to ETH 2.0.”

Staked Launches Kyber Rewards Claiming and Reporting

Posted by Staked on Aug 28, 2020 3:53:47 PM
 
Staked announced today the release of Kyber rewards claiming and reporting for KNC delegates of Staked’s Kyber stakepool. KNC stakers currently earn 65.3% of the fees generated from trading on the Kyber Network, or approximately 350 ETH per 2 week epoch period, in exchange for voting on governance proposals.

Staked Kyber

To set up Kyber rewards claiming and reporting, create a Staked account here. Next, click on Kyber from the token grid on the Setup Reporting page, and add the ETH public address used to delegate voting power to the Staked stakepool in the address input field. After clicking on the Add button, you will be redirected to Staked’s Reporting Summary.

If you already have a Staked account and are logged in, hover over the person icon in the upper right hand navigation, click on Holdings from the drop-down, and then add the ETH public address used to delegate to Kyber in the token grid. 

To claim your rewards for Epoch 1, 2 and 3, click on the Claim button for the corresponding epoch. When claiming rewards, make sure you are connected to the ETH address used for delegation to Staked, or the claim rewards transaction will fail. Rewards for epochs 1 - 3 will each need to be claimed separately.

Equally as importantly, we recently deployed an upgraded stakepool that enables delegates to claim rewards for all outstanding epochs in a single rewards claim transaction to save on gas costs.

To delegate to the upgraded stakepool, visit http://kyber.org, click on My Stake in the upper right hand navigation, and enter the following ETH address in the Delegate’s ETH Address field and click on the Delegate button:

0xe2Db444968A9D01F3473c065b8ece86838F0D8e5

Please make sure to update your delegation to the new stakepool before Epoch 4 ends on September 7th, 2020. Staked will stop voting and claiming on the old stakepool on this date.

** For details on how redelegation will impact your rewards (for the epoch in which you redelegate), please refer to the Kyber team’s walk through examples on voting power. In summary, you will not be eligible to earn rewards for the one epoch in which you redelegate. You will earn rewards by voting for the following epoch (n +1), and will be able to claim rewards for that epoch and all epochs going forward.

Joining The Graph Network as a Node Operator

Posted by Staked on Aug 28, 2020 10:40:55 AM
Banner-2

Staked is excited to announce that we have joined the The Graph Network incentivized testnet as a node operator. Enabling internet applications that are entirely powered by public infrastructure, The Graph has become the backbone of the burgeoning Ethereum and DeFi ecosystem. Today, a number of projects have built out subgraphs including Uniswap, RAY, Aave, Synthetix, ENS, and more.

The Graph Network decentralizes the query and API layer of Web3, removing a tradeoff dApp developers struggle with today: whether to build an application that is performant or to build an app that is truly decentralized.

Staked is currently participating in The Graph Network incentivized testnet, Mission Control. The testnet is designed to help validate economic design, test security, network capacity and indexer performance in the protocol. In Mission Control, indexers operate Graph Nodes and stake GRT to index and serve blockchain data, curators signal on subgraphs and stake GRT to indicate to Indexers which subgraphs are high-quality and should be indexed, and node operators compete as indexers that are rewarded based on contribution.

The Graph

Staked is supported by a highly available and secure backend infrastructure. We use Kubernetes to distribute across five clouds with automated failover, and have never been slashed or had extended downtime in 3 years of operating POS blockchain nodes. Our technical infrastructure has been audited by security and DevOps teams at the leading protocols, exchanges, and custodians.

Staked Joins Chainlink as an Oracle Node Operator

Posted by Staked on Aug 12, 2020 8:22:32 AM
Chainlink Banner

Staked is excited to announce that we have joined the Chainlink network as an oracle node operator. Staked's Chainlink node is live and actively providing reliable data feeds to over 25 DeFi applications built on Ethereum. We bring over three years of blockchain industry experience and provide secure backend infrastructure to power our Chainlink Node, further decentralizing and improving the security of the Chainlink Network. To view the Staked Chainlink oracle node operator, please visit the following link

Chainlink is a decentralized oracle network that enables smart contracts to securely and reliably access off-chain data providers, web APIs, on-chain randomness, enterprise systems, cloud networks, IoT devices, payment systems, other blockchains, and much more. By doing so, smart contracts can use external data to trigger their on-chain logic, as well as send outputs to traditional systems such as executing a bank payment.

The Chainlink protocol provides high availability and tamper-resistance to the delivery of off-chain data to the smart contract, as well as hardens data sourcing against any single source manipulation. Chainlink is the leading provider of highly secure and reliable oracle infrastructure to large enterprises (Google, Oracle, and SWIFT), leading DeFi dApps (Aave, Synthetix, and Bancor), and numerous layer-1 protocols (Ethereum, Tezos, Polkadot / Substrate).

Chainlink

Regarding supporting Chainlink, Tim Ogilvie, Staked Co-founder & CEO, said, "Oracles have become critical infrastructure within the smart contract tech stack, allowing smart contracts to interface with real-world data and traditional infrastructure. Chainlink has emerged as the market leader in oracles for the DeFi ecosystem and beyond. Staked is excited to take part in this next evolution of smart contracts by operating as a Chainlink node operator to help further decentralize the network.” 

Staked is supported by a highly available and secure backend infrastructure. We use Kubernetes to distribute across five clouds with automated failover, and have never been slashed or had extended downtime in 3 years of operating POS blockchain nodes. Our technical infrastructure has been audited by security and DevOps teams at the leading protocols, exchanges, and custodians.
