Welcoming Staked as an Official Staking Partner — Matic Network

With our staking launch fast approaching, we are committed to building the strongest possible staking ecosystem. Our decentralized network of Validators will be responsible for taking part in our PoS consensus mechanism, producing blocks, and committing checkpoints to the Ethereum mainchain — and will thus play an integral role in ensuring the health of Matic Network.

Therefore, alongside our decentralized network of community-run nodes which are being onboarded during our ongoing Counter Stake initiative, we are also onboarding a series of top-tier industry validators in order to ensure the utmost security and reliability of the network.

Having already announced Stake Capital and stake.fish as official Staking Partners, we are thrilled to reveal that Staked has now joined our ecosystem of industry-leading Validators.

Staked will be contributing to network security by running a Validator node, and will provide staking services for the community by allowing MATIC holders to delegate their tokens to Staked’s node in order to generate a passive income via staking rewards. With their focus on institutional investors, they will provide a trusted MATIC staking option for large players as well as retail investors.

We will also be collaborating closely with Staked to utilize their expertise on staking economics, working with them on testnet event stages, and on outreach to spread awareness of Matic’s staking program.

About Staked

Founded in 2018, Staked has grown to be an industry-leading staking service provider and is backed by investors including 9Yards Capital, Digital Currency Group, Pantera Capital, Republic Labs, and Winklevoss Capital.

Building a strong decentralized Validator network

Though we are thrilled to see our staking ecosystem continuing to grow stronger as our staking launch fast approaches, there is more to come. Staking Partner onboarding is still ongoing — many more reputed industry players will be joining as we continue to expand our decentralized network of Validators.

Stay tuned for more exciting updates in the run-up to our staking launch.
