Today we are pleased to announce our support for staking on Persistence, a network that is boldly attempting to create an interoperable marketplace for institutional asset transfer. Persistence is essentially re-creating accessibility for institutional liquidity and retail participation. The first product Persistence built was Comdex, a blockchain-based marketplace for trade finance and commodities. Using smart contracts, Persistence was able to standardise and bring immediate liquidity to the trading of commodities in Singapore. Since then, Persistence has built multiple products. One such product is a DeFi protocol known as pLend, where commodities companies can use their real-world assets (with terms in smart contracts) as collateral to borrow stablecoins supplied by crypto-native users. Other products Persistence has built include Audit.One, a validator that runs a node on multiple networks (including many that Chorus is also active on, e.g. Cosmos, Terra, NEAR, SKALE, and Celo) and pStake, a liquid staking protocol aiming to unlock liquidity of locked staking tokens in the Cosmos ecosystem.

Overall, Chorus and Persistence have a deep understanding of the intricacies of many networks and will be able to share that knowledge with each other to improve upon the security of Persistence’s own network. Not only that, Chorus will also be able to share its own liquid staking experience with Persistence to assist them building out liquid staking protocols on networks we both support.

We are yet to see exactly how real-world finance, DeFi, and staking will coalesce in the future. Running a node on Persistence allows us to contribute to a network that actively works on experimenting with the possibilities of this rich intersection within the Cosmos ecosystem. We are pleased to have the opportunity to secure a network that is building in areas that greatly align with Chorus.

Chorus One is one of the most distinguished validators in the Proof-of-Stake ecosystem and has been at the forefront of innovation within this domain.

Meher (Co-Founder of Chorus One) has been a guiding force in my Crypto journey and now we are honoured to have Chorus One as a Validator on Persistence.

Persistence and Chorus One have a lot of synergies including on the soon to be launched liquid staking app — pStake Finance — by Persistence.

About Staking on Persistence: is built using Cosmos SDK. Users can delegate their XPRT to Chorus One using a wallet, such as Keplr.

Validating Rights: The weight of validators is determined by the amount of staking tokens (XPRT) bonded as collateral.

XPRT Inflation: 35%

Reward Rate: Rewards from staking XPRT will vary depending on the inflation and total amount of tokens that are staked at a given time. Learn more about the details of staking reward rates for chains built using Cosmos SDK here.

Chorus Commission: 8%

Withdrawal Delay: After withdrawing, your staked funds will only become accessible after the unbonding period (usually 21 days) has passed.

Slashing: You can get slashed (loss funds) in case the validator you are delegated to commits an offense. Make sure to do due diligence to minimize this risk.

Re-Staking: You need to withdraw rewards and re-stake them with some frequency if you want to make use of compounding returns.
