Team Information

Staked HQ: Boston, MA

Staked helps institutional investors reliably and securely compound their crypto by 5% — 100% annually through staking and lending. Staked runs validation nodes for proof-of-stake currencies and offers access to on- and off-chain lending options that provide an annualized yield of in-kind currency.

Proposal

Staked will enhance the ICON Network by providing highly secure and available staking infrastructure. We are very excited to work with our existing and new customers to secure the ICON Network. We are interested in becoming a P-Rep of ICON because we have demand from our exisiting partners. Staked plans to execute on our proposal plan by allocating engineering and business resources to this matter. We can generally spin up support for a new chain in two to three weeks. We look forward to securing the ICON Network!
