Moonstake Integrates Support for Polygon Blockchain

Moonstake announced today it will implement support for the popular Polygon Network. With this update, Moonstake Wallet users can now send, receive, and own MATIC coin as well as MATIC tokens on both the web and mobile versions. This update also enables support for sending, receiving, and holding ORBS on Polygon. Furthermore, Moonstake is considering supporting the staking of ORBS on Polygon Network, since the staking platform currently already supports ORBS staking on Ethereum. This will enable users to earn via multi-chain staking of ORBS on both blockchains through a single safe and user-friendly staking platform.
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 2,000 cryptocurrencies. Currently, Moonstake supports 16 high-demand staking coins: Cosmos, IRIS, Ontology, Harmony, Tezos, Cardano, Qtum, Polkadot, Quras, Centrality, Orbs, IOST, TRON, Shiden, FIO, and EVER, as well as ERC-721 and Cardano NFTs. After a full-scale operation launched in August 2020, Moonstake’s total staking assets have grown rapidly to reach $1.8 Billion and by June 2021, Moonstake was the third best staking provider in the world out of 15,000 staking providers worldwide. In March 2021, the company entered DeFi with Muse.Finance, a DeFi platform, and will continue to expand into the DeFi business.

Meanwhile, Polygon is a decentralized Ethereum scaling platform that enables developers to build scalable user-friendly dApps with low transaction fees without ever sacrificing on security. Polygon effectively transforms Ethereum into a full-fledged multi-chain system (aka Internet of Blockchains) akin to other ones such as Polkadot, Cosmos, Avalanche etc with the advantages of Ethereum’s security, vibrant ecosystem and openness. The ecosystem’s token, MATIC, provides robust security as well as enables governance. Polygon 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.

As a world-leading staking provider, Moonstake is looking forward to offer new, excellent user experiences and exciting opportunities to the Polygon ecosystem users through this integration.

Moonstake to Establish Moonstake Gaming Guild (MSGG) to Enter GameFi Business

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 Collaborates with deBridge to Enable Cross-chain Bridge for Assets and NFTs

Today, Moonstake is happy to announce our collaboration with the innovative cross-chain interoperability and liquidity transfer project deBridge. Through this collaboration, Moonstake will become a validator for the deBridge network that facilitates seamless bridging of any arbitrary asset and data, and NFTs across a wide range of blockchains including Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, HECO, Arbitrum, and Polygon initially, with many more to come. Their infrastructure is enabling interoperability not only for assets and data, but also for NFTs and Metaverses.
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. Currently, Moonstake supports 14 high-demand staking coins: Cosmos, IRIS, Ontology, Harmony, Tezos, Cardano, Qtum, Polkadot, Quras, Centrality, Orbs, IOST, TRON, and Shiden. After a full-scale operation launched in August 2020, Moonstake’s total staking assets have grown rapidly to reach $1.8 Billion and by June 2021, Moonstake was the third best staking provider in the world out of 15,000 staking providers worldwide. In March 2021, the company entered DeFi with Muse.Finance, a DeFi platform, and will continue to expand into the DeFi business.

deBridge is a cross-chain interoperability and liquidity transfer protocol that allows truly decentralized transfer of arbitrary data and assets between various blockchains. The cross-chain intercommunication of deBridge smart contracts is powered by the network of independent validators elected by deBridge governance. These elected validators, which now includes Moonstake through this partnership, run a full node of each supported blockchain and the deBridge node to perform validation of cross-chain transactions that pass between smart contracts of the deBridge protocol in different chains.

deBridge commenced during the Chainlink Global Hackathon where the team strived to solve the urgent problems of transferring data and liquidity between blockchains and the lack of a single decentralized standard for bridging assets. The project was awarded the grand prize, taking first place among more than 140 teams worldwide.

On the collaboration, Founder of Moonstake, Mitsuru Tezuka, says: “As one of the world-leading staking providers, Moonstake is happy to support deBridge in building a truly decentralized cross-chain interoperability framework for blockchains, protocols, and applications as an official validator. We are very impressed with deBridge technical prowess and strong vision for not only technological innovation but also security for users, both of which are also key values that align with the vision of Moonstake to enable users the most advanced, safe, and friendly experience with digital assets.”.

Alex Smirnov, CEO of deBridge, comments: “Our team is thrilled that Moonstake will be a part of deBridge’s validator network to facilitate security and reliability. It’s important for us to have experienced validators when we’re building cross-chain infrastructure, and we’re looking forward to working with Moonstake moving forward.
