On the 12th of December 2020, Japan’s largest blockchain incubation hub, Binarystar, will host the Business Blockchain Expo following September Expo. For this Expo, Moonstake is now sponsoring the Decentralized Finance (DeFi) section and will serve as a gateway to introduce prominent DeFi projects to the Japanese market.

 

Business Blockchain Expo is a business matching event organized by Binarystar that connects domestic and overseas blockchain operators with Japanese industry. In the “DeFi section” sponsored by Moonstake, the invited speakers are from the forefront of the defi industry such as  MakerDAO, NEO Flamingo, and Zilliqa, the world’s most advanced technologies and projects in DeFi. There will be a wide range of discussions on what the DeFi community expects on the Japan market from a DeFi perspective. 

 

Currently, DeFi is the hottest area in the blockchain industry. The expansion of the DeFi ecosystem has been huge. Since the beginning of this year, DeFi’s total locks were US $ 1 billion at the end of 2019 and now growing to over $14 billion.  Along with staking, which is expected to grow over the $50billion market with the spread of Proof of Stake (PoS) where strong growth is expected.

https://www.moonstake.io/ 

 

Moonstake today announced that it has successfully closed its seed round funding and has raised  $1.04 Million (approximately JPY 110 Million). Partnerships with more than 10 public blockchains such as Emurgo (one of Cardano’s constituent corporations) and advanced products centered on staking wallets attracted a great deal of attention, leading to this procurement six months since it was founded. This procurement was carried out with Singapore-based venture capital firm Ruby Capital as the lead investor and financial investors with domestic and overseas bases as business partners.

 

Since Moonstake was founded, Moonstake has sought to meet growing demand in Asia and globally by developing its own innovative staking protocols. Moonstake’s product is a one-stop solution with staking capabilities that provides a gateway for users to facilitate their use of cryptocurrencies via web and mobile wallets(iOS / Android). Currently, Moonstake supports staking for ADA, Tezos, Cosmos, Ontology, QTUM, IRISnet, Harmon and further innovative products such as connection to DeFi via wallet will be developed in the future.

 

With this funding, Moonstake will step up its existing staking pool operations and wallet service offerings. In addition, while further expanding the products and services for businesses that we have been promoting, we will build a platform for decentralized finance (DeFi), which we have been connecting for some time, and a protocol for solving staking liquidity. We will promote innovative initiatives in the DeFi area with development.

 

Staking has been in full swing since 2019. Earlier this year, the market value of the staking market expanded 3.5 times in the 10 months from the beginning of the year, even in the single year of 2020, due to the PoS transition of well-known projects such as ADA and the start of staking.

 

Against this backdrop, Moonstake has been developing more user-focused staking products to create Asia’s largest staking pool network. The number of users continued to grow due to active alliances with public blockchains and marketing cooperation, and in October, Moonstake’s total staking amounted to over $50Million.

 

Panjun Wang, Partner at Ruby Capital says:
Moonstake has continued delivering recorded achievements in the crypto staking service industry, and Ruby Capital is excited to be part of its journey from Staking to Defi. We look forward to the joint-developments and bringing more values to the users of the Moonstake!

With Tezos, the active community will be able to stake their coins on the Moonstake platform. Unlike other cryptocurrencies to stake, if you have more than 1 XTZ, you can get connected with a validator and are eligible to receive rewards. To perform staking with Moonstake, you need to create an account and stake at Moonstake Web Wallet. At this time, the transaction fee will be charged.  Rewards are automatically handed out based on the tokens you have in your wallet. The entire quantity held in the wallet will continue to be staked. You are free to send and receive tokens in your wallet at any time, even while staking. There is no lockout period.

Tezos is a technology for deploying a blockchain capable of modifying its own set of rules with minimal disruption to the network through an on-chain governance model. Unlike Bitcoin, Tezos does not rely on mining (Proof of Work), but instead utilizes a Proof-of-Stake based consensus model. At Tezos, all stakeholders can participate in managing the protocol. The selection cycle offers a formal and systematic procedure for stakeholders to agree on proposed protocol changes. By combining this in-chain mechanism with self-change, Tezos can change this initial selection process to adopt better management mechanisms as soon as it is realized.
