Moonstake Announces Upcoming Integration of FIO Staking

The Foundation for Interwallet Operability (FIO) — a leading blockchain protocol that aims to enable a better way of sending and receiving crypto — is excited to announce a partnership with Moonstake for the implementation of FIO Staking. Through this partnership, Moonstake will collaborate with the FIO development team to enable staking functionality for FIO tokens on Moonstake wallets as an official Block Producer for the FIO network.

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 $1.8 Billion, allowing Moonstake to become one of the top 10 staking providers globally. Currently, Moonstake supports staking of 14 high-demand PoS coins, 2 high-demand NFT standards ERC-721 and Cardano.

Meanwhile, FIO was founded in 2020 and aims to enable easier, safer and more joyful crypto transactions on any type of token or coin. The FIO Protocol is designed to ensure the cryptocurrency user experience is uncomplicated and lays the foundation for cryptocurrency mass adoption. Long complex addresses have been replaced with user-customized FIO Crypto Handles such as “user@fio” that enable decentralized sending, receiving, and payment requests (invoices, order carts, etc.), as well as end-to-end encrypted metadata (the information for those invoices, order carts, etc.) that can work across all blockchains.

FIO Staking is live on Mainnet as of January 2022, with official Staking Activation set for 22nd February, 2022. Moonstake aims to enable FIO Staking prior to this activation date so that Moonstake users can enjoy the greatest amount of earning potential per token staked. With seasoned development teams and robust enterprise partnership networks across the globe, the collaboration between Moonstake and FIO Protocol promises to bring about a satisfactory staking experience for FIO holders on Moonstake Wallet.

Mitsuru Tezuka, Founder at Moonstake says:

“We’re excited to partner with FIO, a leading blockchain protocol that aims to simplify and enhance user experience with digital assets. Sending and receiving are the most basic activities of any crypto owner and we believe that FIO’s solution of a simplified, memorable crypto handle for everyone will significantly improve the experience of using crypto. We look forward to bringing the great ecosystem of FIO to our user community worldwide through this strategic partnership as well as opportunities for deeper collaboration with the team to deliver greater value to the crypto community at large.”

Luke Stokes, Managing Director at FIO Protocol, says:

“We’re excited to see the FIO Protocol join the family of excellent token projects currently supported by Moonstake’s staking ecosystem. Just as we focus on improving the usability of sending and receiving cryptocurrency, Moonstake is making the process of staking your tokens easier as well. We’re looking forward to continuing to work together to make cryptocurrency easier for everyone.”
