Moonstake is pleased to announce that our users can now earn interest from staking ORBS token on an additional chain – Polygon – on both the Web and Mobile Wallets! Hold, send, receive, and stake ORBS on both Ethereum and Polygon Network to earn multi-chain staking rewards with the best user experience through one single click! 

 

Previously in April 2022, we initially integrated support for Polygon chain, specifically enabling users the ability to hold, send, receive, and own MATIC coin as well as MATIC tokens. As an official Guardian of Orbs Universe via strategic partnership with Orbs Network since March 2021, Moonstake is proud to bring our community as well as ORBS users globally the ORBS multi-chain staking experience on Ethereum and now Polygon!

 

Moonstake started the staking business last year with the aim to create the largest staking network in Asia. Since then, we have developed the most user-friendly Web Wallet and Mobile Wallet (iOS / Android) with support for over 2000 cryptocurrencies. After a full-scale operation launched in August 2020, Moonstake’s total staking assets have grown rapidly to reach $1 Billion, allowing Moonstake to become one of the top 10 staking providers globally. Since March this year, Moonstake has also entered DeFi together with the newly launched DeFi platform, Muse.Finance, who has begun releasing its core DeFi products which are all scheduled to be integrated into Moonstake platform to enable advanced DeFi connectivity for our global users.

 

Meanwhile, Orbs recently rolled out its Orbs 3.0 upgrade which utilizes Orbs’ unique features, designed for interoperability with EVM and non-EVM blockchains, to be set up as a separate decentralized execution layer operating between the base blockchain layer and application layer.

.The Orbs Network is powered by the ORBS token, which is used for the settlement of fees and provides the system of incentives for election of Guardians (the Orbs validators) using Proof-of-Stake consensus.. It is accessible across eight  major chains: Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, Polygon, Solana, Avalanche, Fantom, Harmony and Cronos. The protocol’s expansion to Polygon Network was based on Polygon’s market prominence as a leading layer-2 project on top of Ethereum that is one of the market’s biggest blockchains for Web3 builders, boasting over 7,000 DApps in its developer ecosystem which features numerous big names – from DeFi projects such as lending platform Aave to luxury brands company Dolce & Gabbana and NFT marketplaces including OpenSea and Mark Cuban’s Lazy.com. Deploying Orbs staking on Polygon capitalizes on the advantages offered by the Ethereum stack in order to achieve both scalability and low fees as well as high security, while also offering users the flexibility to stake and earn with whichever chain they like.

 

How to stake ORBS on Polygon using Moonstake Wallet

Here’s a simple 4-step process to stake ORBS on Polygon with Moonstake Wallet

  1. Register your Moonstake Web wallet
  2. From the wallet screen, click “Add asset (+)” and enable “MATIC (Polygon)” in the “Coins” tab. Then enable “ORBS (MATIC)” in the “Token” tab.
  3. From the wallet screen, select ORBS (MATIC) and click the “Stake Now” button.
  4. Confirm the staking information, then click the “Staking” button and enter your wallet password.

 

How ORBS Staking Works

Hold ORBS Token and no minimum amount for staking.

Agree to lock in and stake ORBS.

The gas fee for transactions will be in MATIC tokens of Polygon instead of ETH like staking ORBS on Ethereum.

 

How to get rewards of ORBS staking

Token holders that delegate to an active Guardian are rewarded in proportion to their stake. Annual reward is up to 6.67% of the Delegators staked tokens.

 

* Delegators are ORBS token holders who assign their voting weight (stake) to Guardians, empowering them to maintain security and uphold the long term vision of the ecosystem.

 

How ORBS unstaking works

If token holders want to send an asset that is currently staked, they will need to unstake it first. The unstaking of tokens will take a full 14 days before they become available, therefore you will not be able to send the tokens immediately. The period during which the tokens cannot be transferred is called the “cooldown period”.

 

Expanding the staking feature of ORBS to Polygon is another step in Moonstake’s effort to promote the adoption of crypto staking as we continue to provide more options and value to crypto users worldwide, and our close working relationship with partner Orbs Network will ensure a satisfactory staking experience for our users. We have previously held a number of campaigns for ORBS users, including webinar, quiz, and giveaways, and we are always working to organize more valuable programs for the community. Please stay tuned for more updates from us!

Welcome to this edition of 101 article exploring one of the staking coins on Moonstake. This time, we’ll be looking at FIO Protocol and its native coin FIO.

 

A Brief Introduction to FIO and FIO Protocol

FIO (short for Foundation for Interwallet Operability) was founded in 2020 and aims to enable easier, safer and more joyful crypto transactions on any type of token or coin. The FIO Protocol is designed to ensure the cryptocurrency user experience is uncomplicated and lays the foundation for cryptocurrency mass adoption. Long complex addresses have been replaced with user-customized FIO Crypto Handles such as “[email protected]” that enable decentralized sending, receiving and payment requests (invoices, order carts, etc.), as well as, cross-chain end-to-end encrypted metadata (the information for those invoices, order carts, etc.) that can work across all blockchains.

 

FIO Protocol utilizes Delegated Proof-of-Stake (DPoS) to achieve network consensus. Block Producers (BPs) are chosen by users who hold FIO tokens via onchain voting. Anyone can register to become a BP and produce blocks if they receive enough votes.

 

FIO’s Technical Milestones and Why Moonstake Supports FIO? 

  • In November 2019, FIO launched their Testnet enabling crypto wallets, exchanges and payment processors the opportunity to fully integrate the FIO Protocol ahead of the Mainnet launch.
  • In March 2020, FIO Protocol Mainnet was launched and activated by a community of over 21 block producers.
  • In July 2020, FIO launched their online store that serves as a proof-of-concept for their e-commerce tech plugin.
  • By January 2021, FIO achieved over 100,000 addresses registered globally.
  • In October 2021, FIO launched a $5 million Integrator Grant Program to accelerate FIO Protocol integration across wallets, exchanges, and crypto applications.
  • In November 2021, FIO introduced their FIO NFT Signatures via integration with Unique.one’s NFT marketplace to protect NFTs created on any blockchain.
  • In January 2022, FIO officially launched the staking functionality of FIO coin while setting the FIO activation date as 22nd February 2022, allowing early adopters to earn at an early access rate.

 

Based on these significant milestones, we can see that FIO is a highly promising coin and furthermore, the FIO Protocol is an innovative blockchain project with a great community and thriving ecosystem of valuable products. This makes FIO an attractive and strategic addition to the lineup of PoS coins available on Moonstake, and Moonstake has been supporting FIO staking since February 2022 via official partnership.

 

How does FIO staking and unstaking work?

As with any PoS coin, you can stake your idle FIO assets to earn passive income. Staking with the FIO Protocol is to participate in the network’s operations (validating blocks) by becoming a nominator who chooses the network’s validators. 

 

While your FIO tokens are being staked, they remain in your wallet while you earn staking rewards. The Staking method ensures that stakers of FIO Tokens will always earn a positive return — meaning they receive more FIO Tokens back when they unstake than the number they staked. Meanwhile, if token holders want to send an asset that is currently staked, they will need to unstake it first. Unstaked tokens are locked and are unspendable for a period of 7 days. After that, they can be transferred as normal.

 

How to get rewards for FIO staking

Rewards are given in FIO tokens and users will have to claim rewards.

 

How to stake FIO on Moonstake Wallet

Here’s a simple 3-step process to stake FIO with Moonstake Wallet:

  • Register your Moonstake Wallet via Web or mobile (iOS / Android)
  • Select FIO from the “Wallets” screen and click the “Add Asset” button.
  • Access the FIO screen to check your staking information. From the Staking tab, click the “Stake” button, input the amount to stake, and enter your wallet password to complete.

Check out our full guide on how to use FIO on Moonstake or refer to this official guide video on how to stake FIO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-4jSMs1LNs

Moonstake today announces the formation of the Moonstake Gaming Guild (MSGG) as the staking provider makes its full-scale entry into the GameFi market.

 

GameFi is a term combining the words “Game” and “Finance”, referring to games where you can earn from playing. Specifically, in-game currency, tokens, characters, and items backed by blockchain technology can be bought and sold by players on crypto asset exchanges and marketplaces. GameFi is a market that  has been growing rapidly, led by the “Axie Infinity” GameFi project which has been especially popular in Southeast Asia since 2021. The GameFi domain is expected to exceed $68 billion* and is attracting widespread attention even outside of the crypto asset industry.

 

GameFi is creating new businesses with its innovative model and Moonstake will help create new jobs by establishing and operating gaming guilds. We will provide gaming know-how and lend strong characters and weapons through the global connections promoted by Moonstake. Moonstake hopes to address one of the major goals of the SDGs, “End Poverty,” via the creation of new jobs.

 

 

*What is a Gaming Guild?

Gaming Guild is a community for matching investors and practitioners. Investors can purchase NFTs and loan them to practitioners aka game players who use the NFT to play. Investors and practitioners will share the revenue generated by playing. The guild operator matches game players with investors and provides them with the necessary NFT assets, tools, and know-how to share a portion of the revenue earned in the game.

 

Why are guilds attracting attention?

Token holders, who currently hold crypto assets as investors, provide assets to the guild for players to purchase NFTs for use in their games. The guild then uses those NFTs to allow players to participate in the game. Players, many of whom have never been exposed to crypto assets, are currently generating revenue as the  community of GameFi players expands in the Philippines and other Southeast Asian countries. In this way, the creation of a new revenue model through GameFi has already been creating numerous new jobs and helping to build players’ economic power.

 

MSGG is currently recruiting game users through the scholarship program of JobTribes, a Play to Earn game that is being developed by Singapore-based GameFi platform DEA.

 

Moonstake plans to use JobTribes as a foothold to connect to a variety of GameFi projects and will work to create new employment opportunities primarily in Southeast Asia.

 

Moonstake launched its staking business in 2020 with the aim to create the largest staking network in Asia. Since then, it has developed the most user-friendly Web Wallet and Mobile Wallet (iOS / Android) with support for over 2000 cryptocurrencies. After a full-scale operation launched in August 2020, Moonstake’s total staking assets have grown rapidly to reach $1.5 Billion, allowing Moonstake to become one of the top 10 staking providers globally. Since last March, Moonstake has also entered DeFi with its newly launched DeFi platform, Muse.Finance, which has released a core DeFi product that will be integrated into Moonstake to offer users worldwide Advanced DeFi connectivity.

 

 

Mitsuru Tezuka, Founder of Moonstake, says:

“We are very pleased to be able to explore new areas of business for Moonstake via the MoonstakeGamingGuild. With so many people still looking for work around the world, GameFi, a new and exciting industry which creates jobs for many people, has always been one of the things I wanted to challenge myself with. I have been fortunate to have a great opportunity to create and operate guilds at JobTribes, and I hope to use this opportunity to discover the various possibilities of GameFi that can synergize with Moonstake to bring even more value to users worldwide.”

Moonstake is proud to announce we’ve successfully secured a grant from the Astar & Shiden Builders Program, designed to accelerate the growth of Astar and Shiden networks by supporting DApp builders to join and scale along with the platforms. With this program, Shiden Network encourages developers to deploy dApp Staking Contracts on Shiden for the purpose of researching to develop a mechanism pool for SDN users so that developers can set up crowd-funded validators. Additionally, Shiden users will be able to lock their SDN for a fixed period of time and they will receive SDN as well as rewards after the fixed term has matured.

 

Astar & Shiden Builders Program aim to leverage the experience and technology of these two Substrate-based networks to help mentor, guide, and eventually, scale DApp builders looking to join and grow on Astar and Shiden networks. Proposals to the grant are evaluated on the technical design of the project, the overall quality of the team and its community, and more. Moonstake is thrilled to join the Builders Program of Astar & Shiden as a world-leading staking provider that supports SDN staking and also Shiden DApp Staking natively. 

 

Moonstake launched its staking business in 2020 with the aim to create the largest staking network in Asia. Since then, it has developed the most user-friendly Web Wallet and Mobile Wallet (iOS / Android) with support for over 2000 cryptocurrencies. After a full-scale operation launched in August 2020, Moonstake’s total staking assets have grown rapidly to reach $1.5 Billion, allowing Moonstake to become one of the top 10 staking providers globally. Currently, Moonstake supports 14 high-demand staking coins, 2 high-demand NFT standards ERC-721 and Cardano. We are currently working with Muse Finance to enter the DeFi market, and have been strategic partners with Astar Network since February 2021  to expand the Polkadot ecosystem and explore further collaborative development opportunities in DeFi. All of Moonstake’s efforts and outcomes have solidified Moonstake’s position and reputation as a service provider for both end users and businesses, rightfully securing us a grant from the Astar & Shiden Builders Program. 

 

Founder of Moonstake, Mitsuru Tezuka, comments: “Moonstake is very excited to have received this grant from the Astar & Shiden Builders Program. As a world-leading staking provider and amongst the world’s first group of validators for Shiden Network, we hope to be able to bring even more value to our ecosystem users as well as the users of Shiden Network with the grant and support of the Astar and Shiden teams.”

 

Moonstake is thrilled to help drive the growth of the Shiden ecosystem as a validator and deliver more value to global crypto user communities.

2021 was a huge year for the cryptocurrency market, with huge strides in growth and adoption of digital assets, NFTs, and blockchain worldwide. It was also an incredible year for Moonstake as we rose the the top rankings of global staking providers, reaching a total staking assets of $1.8 billion thanks to the support of our users and partners worldwide. As we begin the new year 2022, Moonstake as well as our strategic coin partners have many exciting news and programs in store for you as our platforms scale and evolve. To welcome our user community into the exciting new year, we’re creating a series of articles in collaboration with our strategic partner on what you need to know about our partner coins in the year 2022, this time with Centrality.

 

As of February 2021, Moonstake has been supporting CENNZ staking via strategic partnership with the development team behind the Centrality blockchain, CENNZnet, since August 2020. Most notably, Moonstake was the world’s first wallet to support CENNZ MainNet and CPAY and has since remained one of the leading CENNZ staking providers. In fact, our staking volume for CENNZ has reached $5.5 million, making Moonstake Wallet the largest CENNZ staking pool in the world. This number is achieved within just 10 days since the launch of CENNZ staking. Since then, Moonstake has hosted a number of campaigns that promote awareness of the Centrality ecosystem as well as adoption of CENNZ staking to global users including commission-free staking campaigns and giveaways.

 

In 2021, CENNZnet accomplished a number of major development milestones. In June, its decentralized exchange CENNZX went live, allowing super fast and totally secure exchange of CENNZnet’s core tokens and eventually, any active CENNZnet token. The official CENNZnet NFT module was also launched, allowing users to mint and sell NFTs on CENNZnet without ever needing to touch a smart contract. CENNZnet also launched its own two-way token bridge, Emery, which connects CENNZnet to Ethereum for seamless cross-chain data and asset transfer. Additionally, the network also successfully hosted a number of hackathons despite Covid-19 disruption as well as a grant program to incentivize building on the CENNZnet chain. In this article, we will be interviewing our partner at Centrality about what is in store for the Centrality ecosystem and its user community in 2022.

 

Q1 Which 2021 achievements are you the most proud of?

It’s been a huge year for CENNZnet. With the mainnet up and running, 2021 has been the year of non-stop building and innovation, and my has it been exciting! So far the team have successfully launched staking, CENNZX our decentralised exchange, point and click NFTs, the Emery token bridge and even gone carbon negative to name just a few! 

2021 was the year of the NFT and CENNZnet pivoted fast to join the market leaders. Using our protocol level NFT module users can mint and sell NFTs on CENNZnet without ever needing to touch a smart contract. Instead, users can create custom NFTs using just a Javascript API or point and click with a UI.

 

Not only will this make it super straightforward for anyone to mint NFT assets, but creators also won’t be locked into a specific marketplace.This piece of work will open us up to work with some major metaverse projects in 2022, so you could say that it’s the most exciting launch for 2021.

 

Q2 What measures are you going to take in 2022 to further increase adoption of CENNZnet?

In the second half of 2021 we were focussed on fostering relationships with established metaverse projects with very large and engaged communities. In the first quarter of 2022 we will begin the announcements about these partnerships. These campaigns are primarily designed to increase the number of people in our communities, with the next step to be educating them on how they can get involved with our project via purchasing CENNZ and staking. 

 

Q3 What can users expect from Centrality in 2022?

The spectacular work that has happened in 2021 means the team will be hitting the ground running in 2022. Expect some super exciting projects, rebranding CENNZnet as the ‘blockchain for the metaverse’, exclusive partnerships and the full implementation of on-chain decentralised governance.

 

Moonstake is proud to be strategic partners of Centrality. We will continue to maintain strong support for the ever growing and developing Centrality ecosystem and hope to bring even more great value to CENNZ and crypto users worldwide in 2022 to help accelerate adoption of the Centrality and Moonstake ecosystems together.

2021 was a huge year for the cryptocurrency market, with huge strides in growth and adoption of digital assets, NFTs, and blockchain worldwide. It was also an incredible year for Moonstake as we rose the the top rankings of global staking providers, reaching a total staking assets of $1.8 billion thanks to the support of our users and partners worldwide. As we begin the new year 2022, Moonstake as well as our strategic coin partners have many exciting news and programs in store for you as our platforms scale and evolve. To welcome our user community into the exciting new year, we’re creating a series of articles in collaboration with our strategic partner on what you need to know about our partner coins in the year 2022, this time with IOST.

 

As of May 2021, Moonstake has been supporting IOST staking and network resource management via strategic partnership with the IOST development team. Since then, Moonstake hosted several key campaigns that helped bring over 1,000 new users to the IOST ecosystem via free account creation as well as promote awareness and adoption of IOST staking such as quizzes, webinars, and staking tournaments. By the end of December, Moonstake’s Servi Node had more than 500 voters with over 70.33 million IOST votes, ranking 11th among all validator nodes.

 

As for IOST last year, the network surpassed the mark of 600,000 total mainnet accounts in November. Throughout the year, IOST also made great strides in the realm of NFT, as the blockchain worked with a number of notable NFT marketplaces to support and optimize the experience of using IOST NFTs for its users. The network also debuted its first ever “IOST official anthem” and also partnered with several DeFi players to further expand in this sector. In this article, we will be interviewing our partner at IOST about what is in store for the IOST ecosystem and its user community in 2022.

Q1 Which 2021 achievements are you the most proud of?

 

IOST is well-known for our technical advancement and superiority. That remains our strength in 2021 as we constantly accomplish more mainnet milestones, currently hosting a whooping number of over 632 millions transactions and over 620 thousands mainnet accounts. It’s also no surprise that the IOST blockchain network has never had downtime and always offers a smooth transaction experience for our users. The historical data, coupled with IOST’s solid technical foundation, has led us to lead the blockchain ranking CCID by China’s Ministry of Information. 

 

If we have to pick a key word for IOST in 2021, it would be NFT. The IOST Foundation successfully onboarded potential NFT projects such Revival- an NFT Marketplace for all artists, RIZIN FIGHTING COLLECTION- a sports NFT marketplace for avid Japanese RIZIN fans and TOKENLINK- a gaming NFT Marketplace for CrossLink games items, arts as well as music NFTs. With NFT being one of the biggest buzzwords in the cryptoverse, having well-developed NFT projects will serve us well in the long run. 

 

Blockchain education always plays a crucial role in our long-term plan, and we are proud to continue the tradition to share the power of blockchain technology to more developers and students this year. The highlight of 2021 in particular would be our strategic collaboration with the University of Nicosia- the world leader in blockchain education and research to offer annual endowed studentships to support, inspire and empower female leads, and create a more inclusive blockchain space. 

 

Last but not least, we have to also mention our multiple successful partnerships with quality projects including the Moonstake Wallet to grow IOST’s staking ecosystem, Yokozuna Finance as a leading DeFi DApp on IOST, OKCoin Japan for a new listing and new Servi Node,  Bitpanda Exchange to expand IOST’s European market, and many more. To check out our 2021 in recap, see this article https://medium.com/iost/iost-2021-yearly-recap-9454a6139caa

 

Q2 What measures are you going to take in 2022 to further increase adoption of IOST?

Our team takes a couple of approach to strengthen adoption of IOST this year: 

  • Target Market: IOST will work hard our existing strong market such as Japan, Korea and China while further pushing our growth in specific target countries in Asia such as India
  •  Dapps: A successful ecosystem needs successful dapps. 2021 has brought IOST quality Dapps such as Yokozuna or RIZIN Fighting Collection. The IOST team will be more aggressive in 2022 to onboard more emerging Dapps into the IOST ecosystem.
  •  Interoperability and Interconnectivity: Rather than focusing the efforts on new and mainstream users, we aim to leverage on the existing large pool of crypto users outside IOST.  

 

Q3 What can users expect from IOST in 2022?

A brief overview of our roadmap in H1 2022 can be found here:

https://link.medium.com/rSQ7VnqXZmb 

Users can find us sticking to our key foundation such as technical maintenance and development, blockchain education, community engagement and ecosystem growth in the IOST roadmap. To stay atop of competition and relevant in the ever-evolving crypto space, it requires us to constantly come up with new and killer moves. We have a secret weapon in development, and will be much more aggressive in growing our ecosystem and community in 2022.

 

Moonstake is proud to be strategic partners of IOST. We will continue to maintain strong support for the ever growing and developing IOST ecosystem and hope to bring even more great value to IOST and crypto users worldwide in 2022 to help accelerate adoption of the IOST and Moonstake ecosystems together.

Moonstake launched its staking business in 2020 with the aim to create the largest staking network in Asia. Since then, it has developed the most user-friendly Web Wallet and Mobile Wallet (iOS / Android) with support for over 2000 cryptocurrencies.

We look forward to bringing the great ecosystem of FIO to our user community worldwide through this strategic partnership as well as opportunities for deeper collaboration with the team to deliver greater value to the crypto community at large.” 

 

 

Luke Stokes, Managing Director at FIO Protocol, says:

Just as we focus on improving the usability of sending and receiving cryptocurrency, Moonstake is making the process of staking your tokens easier as well. We’re looking forward to continuing to work together to make cryptocurrency easier for everyone.”
