Who is Staked?
Staked makes it easy for investors to earn the rewards available from proof of stake networks. We run staking nodes for a wide variety of PoS networks and intend to support more than ten protocols by the end of 2018. Investors receive staking block rewards reliably, we are fanatical about security, and provide aggregated reporting for multiple chains.
Staked is led by three experienced entrepreneurs who have each built and operated highly scaled technical businesses. The investors who have committed to stake with us are the best in the business.
The Staked ID for delegation is: 0xe9e284277648fcdb09b8efc1832c73c09b5ecf59
Why should you delegate to Staked?
- Reliability: We use Kubernetes to orchestrate a highly available staking infrastructure that provides automated recovery from crashes or network downtime, protection against typical DDoS attacks and 24/7 monitoring.
- Scalability: Our Kubernetes cluster can easily scale to meet network demand. We can rapidly deploy additional containers as we observe heavier load and will deploy onto specialized hardware to ensure we transcode reliably as Livepeer demand grows.
- Experience: We are currently operating validation node infrastructure for Tezos, EOS, Factom and Livepeer, as well as testnets for Cosmos, R-Chain and others. We have automation to handle many of the common issues and a team that kows how to figure out the uncommon stuff.
- Ease of Use: We provide a unified dashboard that details both block rewards and fees from transcoding. This makes it easy to see how much you’re earning, handle tax reporting, and will surface chain-specific technical details. An added plus: it supports all the other chains we cover through a single dashboard.
What hardware does Staked run?
All of our infrastructure is code, so we will experiment with a variety of hardware configurations to optimize the transcoding experience. We use Prometheus and Grafana to provide granular detail on performance that will inform hardware choices designed to minimize the transcoding costs for broadcasters.
What is your fee structure?
We will take a 5% fee on block rewards. We are not sharing transcoding fees as it raises tax questions for some partners. We may re-visit this in the future. We are initially charging 150 GWEI per segment.
