Welcome to this edition of 101 article exploring one of the staking coins on Moonstake. This time, we’ll be looking at TRON Network and its native coin, Tronix (TRX).

 

A Brief Introduction to TRX and TRON Network

TRON is a market-leading blockchain well-known for its large and highly active community of users and developers from all over the world, dedicated to the establishment of a truly decentralized Internet and its infrastructure. The TRON Protocol, one of the largest blockchain operating systems in the world, adopts an energy efficient dPoS consensus mechanism to provide high throughput, high scalability, and high availability for decentralized applications in the TRON ecosystem through collaboration with key business partners including global tech giant Samsung, Opera, Poloniex, Swisscom Blockchain, and many more. Currently, the TRON-based TRC20 protocol hosts the largest circulation of stablecoin globally with nearly 36 billion USDT. Its native coin Tronix (TRX) can be used by content consumers to pay creators for in-game assets, or use as currency in gaming or to reward creators directly for their entertainment content or to purchase additional access. 

 

TRON network was founded in 2017 by Justin Sun. As one of the most influential KOLs in the blockchain industry, Justin is a serial entrepreneur and served as CEO of the world’s most popular P2P communication protocol, BitTorrent, from 2018 to 2021. He also founded one of China’s most popular voice streaming social Apps, Peiwo. Tron is also one of the fastest growing DeFi ecosystems on the market, boasting more than 56 million global user accounts and over 2 billion cumulative transactions.

 

TRON’s Technical Milestones and Why Moonstake Supports TRX? 

  • The TRON MainNet was publicly launched in June 2018 achieving independence from the Ethereum blockchain it was originally 
  • In just a little over six months of its MainNet going live, TRON gained over 1 million registered users, boasting more transactions than Ethereum and more accounts than EOS, giving it a place in the list of 10 largest cryptocurrencies of 2018.
  • TRON’s DApp ecosystem reached more than 80 Dapps in 60 days of the TRON Virtual Machine (TVM) launch.
  • In March 2019, Tether announced a new TRON-based stablecoin, USDT TRC20.
  • In October 2019, TRON officially partnered with Samsung to offer its DApps on the Samsung Galaxy Store and the TRON section on the Samsung app store was launched in April 2020.
  • In May 2020, BitTorrent File System (BTFS) went live, creating the world’s largest P2P storage network with 100 million user-controlled nodes and more than 1,000 TRON full nodes.
  • In June 2021, Circle’s USDC stablecoin was made available on the TRON network.
  • In September 2021, TRON joined a short list of leading crypto tokens (namely Bitcoin and Ether) with its successful listing of VanEck TRX ETP (VTRX) on the Deutsche Boerse, providing investor access in 14 EU markets.

 

Based on these significant milestones, we can see that TRX is a highly promising coin and further more, the Tron Network is a leading open-source blockchain project globally. This makes TRX an attractive and strategic addition to the lineup of PoS coins available on Moonstake, and Moonstake has been supporting TRX staking since October 2021 after forming an official partnership in June 2021. 

 

How does TRX staking and unstaking work?

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

 

Every account in TRON’s network can vote for the Super Representatives/Super Partners they support. Voting requires TRON Power (TP), which is determined by the users’ frozen balance. Freezing (staking) TRX tokens results in energy and bandwidth required to interact smoothly with the network as well as the increase in voting power of voting for Super Representatives/Super Partners.

 

To vote for a Super Representative/Super Partner, you will need to make sure that your TRX is frozen. This will create “Tron Power” and give you power to vote. This does not cost you TRX, it will only lock them for a period of 3 days. During these three days, your TRX cannot be traded or unstaked. Moonstake wallet combines the freeze/unfreeze action along with stake/unstake for your convenience so you do not need to perform the freeze/unfreeze action separately. 

 

There’s virtually no minimum staking amount required, as the smallest amount you must stake is simply 1 TRX. TRON network also has no lock period when unstaking and practically zero transaction fees, making it a popular blockchain for many users.

 

How to get rewards for TRX staking

The annual reward (APY) is about 5.46%. You can claim your TRX rewards once every 24 hours directly from the TRON network via Moonstake Wallet.

 

How to stake TRX on Moonstake Wallet

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

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

Freezing (staking) TRX tokens results in energy and bandwidth required to interact smoothly with the network as well as the increase in voting power of voting for Super Representatives/Super Partners.

Moonstake wallet combines the freeze/unfreeze action along with stake/unstake for your convenience so you do not need to perform the freeze/unfreeze action separately.

 

There is no minimum staking amount required.

 

What are the roles of Super Representative and Super Partner?

In the TRON network, any account can apply to become a Super Representative or Super Partner. Every account can vote for Super Representative candidates. The top 27 candidates with the most votes are the Super Representatives, while the 28th to 127th will become Super Partners. The top 127 candidates (including 27 Super Representatives) can be awarded according to their voting rate, and this 127-ranking fluctuates depending on the number of votes over time. Super Representatives will be obligated to generate blocks and package transactions, in return for corresponding block rewards (9%) as well as voting rewards (91%). Super Partners, on the other hand, only receive voting rewards without performing the aforementioned two tasks. All Super Representative candidates, Super Partners, and Super Representatives have the right to raise proposals to modify parameters on the TRON network. 

 

How to get rewards of TRX staking:

The annual reward (APY) is about 5.46%. You can claim your TRX rewards once every 24 hours. Staking rewards are distributed by the Super Representative (Partner) depending on the rules that they have set.

 

Moonstake is proud to be a Super Partner and we look forward to deeper cooperation with TRON to accelerate global adoption of the TRON network and staking ecosystems as a whole as well as DeFi services as we both scale our growing ecosystems together.

Welcome to this month’s edition exploring one of the staking coins on Moonstake. This time, we’ll be looking at Orbs Network and its native ERC20 token built on Ethereum, ORBS.

 

A Brief Introduction to ORBS and Orbs Network

Orbs is an open-source public blockchain infrastructure designed for mass usage applications – offering developers a proper mix of performance, cost, security and ease of use. The Orbs protocol is decentralized and executed by a public network of permissionless validators using Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus. The Orbs Network is designed to let businesses utilize the trust powered by blockchain technology as a competitive strategy while offering predictable, low fees as well as high scalability to meet the demands of large-scale consumer applications. ORBS, the native token that fuels all activities on the Orbs blockchain including smart contracts, transaction fees, and consensus-based storage.

 

At the end of March 2019, the Orbs Network and its native token ORBS were launched and opened to the public. In only four short months, the network had its first reward distribution where 18 million ORBS were distributed to 1,448 participating addresses and by October of the same year, the first DApp was launched on the network. Today, Orbs is one of the most esteemed blockchain projects on the market, notable for its robust scalability, security, and low fees. The company has partnered with industry leaders from both traditional and decentralized technology sectors, such as IBM and Kakao as well as Binance, Consensys, and Celsius respectively to accelerate business adoption of blockchain, DeFi, and the development of DApps. 

 

Orbs Network Technical Achievements and Why Moonstake Supports ORBS

At Moonstake, we work to support the most demanded coins on the market. Here are some key achievements of Orbs Network so far:

 

  • In May 2018 prior to its official launch, Orbs announced that it successfully raised more than $118 million to fund the development and launch of the Orbs platform.
  • Currently, nearly $800 million ORBS is being staked to network Guardians.
  • Orbs is currently one of the most actively developed projects out there, with numerous repos in their official GitHub, more than the average crypto project that had an ICO on the market.
  • Orbs is a hybrid blockchain whose main infrastructure is used to run applications while  voting functions are delegated to Ethereum to enable security and objectivity in exchange for higher transaction fees. However, with update V2.5, Orbs has successfully reduced the gas cost, along with other operation costs for validators (Guardians) across the whole network while allowing stakers (Delegators) to choose when and how often they can claim their staking rewards too.
  • At the start of 2021, Orbs Network began gaining immense traction ORBS token is currently ranked #5 in the Top 10 trending crypto coins by CryptoCrunchApp.

We can see that ORBS is a high-demand coin and its Orbs Network is an esteemed, highly active blockchain project with a passionate, talented development team.This makes ORBS a great and strategic addition to the lineup of PoS coins available on Moonstake, and Moonstake has been supporting ORBS staking since March 2021.

 

How does ORBS staking work?

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

 

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. Meanwhile, Guardians play a central role in the Orbs PoS model – they are expected to be key participants within the Orbs Universe, who enforce the security of the network, align with the long term Orbs vision and actively work to make this vision a reality. A core role of the Guardians is to review the Validators, monitor their operations and ensure proper network operation and security by approving Validators that follow the protocol correctly.

 

There is no minimum amount required for staking on Orbs Network, you can stake as much as you like. Since ORBS is an ERC20 token, you will need to have ETH to pay for gas fee whenever you make a transaction (stake or unstake). 

 

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 8% of the Delegators staked tokens (subject to an 80M Orbs Token cap on total rewards).

 

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 “lock period”.

 

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

  1. Register your Moonstake Web wallet (https://wallet.moonstake.io) 
  2. From the wallet screen, select ORBS and click the “Stake Now” button.
  3. Confirm the staking information, then click the “Staking” button and enter your wallet password.

This will be the first time in the world that Muse will be integrated. Since the announcement of our joint entrance to DeFi in March 2021, we have been working together closely to develop and promote high-quality DeFi products that aim to resolve staking illiquidity.

 

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 Billion, allowing Moonstake to become one of the top 5 staking providers globally. Currently, Moonstake supports 12 high-demand staking coins: Cosmos, IRIS, Ontology, Harmony, Tezos, Cardano, Qtum, Polkadot, Quras, Centrality, Orbs, and IOST.

Muse is a comprehensive DeFi platform launched in March 2021. It is working to launch various DeFi products, including a Wrapper to issue wrapped tokens for staking assets that can be used to provide liquidity to staked assets, as well as DEX (decentralized exchange) and Lending platforms to facilitate the distribution of such assets. 

 

A feature of Muse already implemented in the Moonstake wallet is lockdrop. Lockdrop is a common, low-risk method of token distribution mechanism in the DeFi industry without raising money while incentivizing user participation. Instead of combining the sale of tokens with assets, lockdrop sees “loss of opportunity” as collateral and distributes tokens in return for valuable losses. For more information about lockdrop, please click here.

Furthermore, users can also utilize the affiliate program to earn extra referral rewards by inviting others to participate in the lockdrop. 

The connection with DeFi products, which has been growing strong since last year, will further enhance the user experience of Moonstake platform. Future product launches of Muse will add liquidity to the staking assets and open the door to innovative DeFi products, all of which will be supported by Moonstake as usual.
