Ferrum Staking as a Service Solutions Live on Algorand
Ferrum has completed a major milestone in their grant from the Algorand Foundation. Ferrum’s Staking as a Service solutions are now available to projects building on Algorand.
Dear Ferrum Community,
Ferrum recently received a grant from the Algorand Foundation to integrate their suite of products with the Algorand network. These products included our Staking as a Service solutions and the Ferrum Multi-Chain Token Bridge.
We’re proud to say that we have successfully integrated our Staking as a Service solutions with the Algorand network!
What Does This Mean For the Algorand Ecosystem?
Until now, a true Staking as a Service provider has not existed in the Algorand ecosystem. By completing this integration Ferrum has made one of the most widely utilized suite of Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) products available to any project using an ASA token standard.
We’re excited for Ferrum’s go-live on Algorand, this release allows users to select a staking pool based on their time preference and acquire juicy rewards.
— Daniel Oon, Head of DeFi, Algorand Foundation.
Not only does this commemorate the first of its kind in the ecosystem, but Ferrum comes with quite the reputation in the BaaS sector of the industry. With over 150 clients, a lifetime TVL of a half billion USD, and an impeccable track record when it comes to security of smart contracts, Ferrum aims to replicate their success in the Algorand ecosystem and make their presence known.
What Does This Mean for Ferrum?
“This integration signifies a major steppingstone in Ferrum’s quest toward Interoperability 2.0. This is the first of many integrations that Ferrum has completed with a non EVM compatible network and we’re honored to have Algorand by our side for it.”
— Nick Odio EVP Partnerships and Growth at Ferrum Network
Algorand uses a coding language called TEAL and supports SDKs for Rust. Ferrum therefore needed to scale its engineering team with developers who understood these languages. This is both extremely exciting and is also a crucial component in Ferrum’s immediate and long term goals.
The next product that Ferrum is due to integrate with the Algorand network is the Ferrum Multi-Chain Token Bridge. The integration is set to be complete in Q2 of 2022 and will serve as a breakthrough advancement for not only Ferrum but interoperability as a whole!
With this integration assets will be able to be bridged from from a multitude of EVM compatible networks to Algorand. Algorand will be the first non EVM compatible network integrated with Ferrum’s revolutionary interoperability protocol but it won’t be the last. Therefore, users can expect to see Algorand Virtual Machine (AVM) become interoperable with not only the world of the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatibility but beyond!
We couldn’t be more thrilled to make our inaugural splash in the Algorand ecosystem. We look to bring our tried and true solutions to many projects building on this wonderful and vibrant network.
Very truly yours,
