After months of hard work, extensive testing, and great support from our user and validator communities since April 19, we are excited to announce that the StaFiHub Mainnet Beta will be launched at 1 PM, August 17, UTC.
Previously during the testnet phase, we released the StaFiHub testnet chain which garnered support from 113 validators. Simultaneously, we also launched related DApps on this testnet such as the rToken, rBridge and rDEX V2, which are tested by 8000+ independent testing addresses. Amazingly, we collected 253 bug reports in total which helped improve the security of the StaFiHub chain. For more info about our StaFiHub Testnet, check out our detailed recap here. As for the great supporters of the StaFiHub Testnet,an Airdrop Campaign has been prepared as a reward for testers and validators.
StaFiHub is a Cosmos SDK built project developed by StaFi protocol to provide Smart Liquid Staking Solution for Cosmos Eco projects. With StaFiHub, Cosmos Eco projects could easily and quickly get their own liquid staking derivatives in a few days. StaFiHub is the first liquid staking project that innovates an automatic delegation algorithm that could maximize the staking rewards for stakers and decentralize the voting power for Cosmos PoS chains.
The launch of the StaFiHub Mainnet Beta is a significant moment for StaFi. Let’s celebrate the new phase of StaFiHub!
What Is StaFihub Mainnet Beta
StaFiHub Mainnet Beta Chain is a Cosmos-SDK built chain and will utilize PoA consensus to secure the network with renowned validators from the Cosmos community and strategic partners of StaFiHub.
The StaFiHub chain will thoroughly support the IBC protocol and Interchain Account to create the best experience for users. StaFiHub will also create the Liquid Staking Matrix by releasing multiple DApps for the liquid staking users.
Liquid Staking DApps Matrix
After launching the StaFiHub mainnet beta, DApps will be gradually released to form a StaFiHub Liquid Staking DApp Matrix for liquid staking users:
1.rToken App supports rIRIS and rATOM V2
The rToken App will be deployed on the StaFiHub Mainnet Beta to serve as the main interface of liquid staking solutions. At the launch, rATOM V2 solution and rIRIS solution are initially supported. ATOM holders and IRIS holders may experience liquid staking for $ATOM and $IRIS.
2.rATOM V2 Migration
rATOM V2 migration will occur at the StaFiHub mainnet beta launch. Therefore, the rATOM V1 users will be able to exchange for new rATOM tokens issued on the StaFiHub chain after the launch.
For more information, please check out “Migration Details” in Introducing the rATOM V2 Solution.
3.Delegation Algorithm V1
StaFiHub Mainnet Beta will support Delegation Algorithm V1 in the rToken App. It is the first completely automatic delegation mechanism governed by an algorithm in the liquids taking space, and not the subjective judgements from people.
Please have a look at the details here: Delegation Algorithm.
rDEX V2 will be deployed on the StaFiHub mainnet beta, and will serve as the main decentralized trading platform for all the rTokens issued on StaFiHub. rDEX V2 will support trading between rTokens issued on StaFiHub and its base token (E.g. rATOM against ATOM).
If you would like to learn more about the features of rDEX V2, please refer to rDEX V2 Features.
rBridge V2 will be deployed on StaFiHub mainnet beta to support cross-chain transfers between StaFi chain, StaFiHub and Cosmos IBC chains. The rBridge V2 will support the IBC protocol to transfer Cosmos ICS-20 tokens and rTokens issued by StaFiHub among IBC chains.
The rBridge V1 on StaFi chain will still be available to our community. The rATOMs issued on the StaFi chain can be exchanged through the rBridge V1 to obtain your corresponding rATOMs on the StaFiHub chain.
The rPool App will also be deployed on the StaFiHub mainnet beta to serve different types of community campaigns such as StakingDrop for StaFiHub liquid staking users, and LP farming programs for rToken liquidity supporters.
After the StaFiHub Mainnet Beta has been launched, we will release the StakingDrop campaigns for our users on rPool App, so welcome to stay tuned.
Fee Station on the StaFiHub mainnet beta will support the exchange for ICS-20 $FIS tokens with their Cosmos ICS-20 tokens like ATOM.
StaFiHub and its Liquid Staking Matrix will be released according to the following schedule:
- Step 1: Mainnet Beta
- Step 2: rBridge V2 & Fee Station
- Step 3: Airdrop Claim Page
- Step 4: ATOM Migration & rATOM V2 DApp
- Step 5: rPool and rATOM V2 StakingDrop
- Step 6: rDEX V2 and List rATOM/ATOM Pool
- Step 7: rIRIS Listed on rToken App and rIRIS StakingDrop
- Step 8: Listing rIRIS/IRIS Pool on rDEX V2
- Step 9: rDEX Liquidity Farming Campaigns
- Step 10: New rToken Launch like rHUAHUA and Related Campaigns
$FIS token is the native token of StaFi Protocol, in which it will be used as the gas token on StaFiHub to power on-chain transactions with network fees paid in ICS-20 $FIS tokens. The growth of the StaFiHub ecosystem will bring further utility to the $FIS token in addition to its existing use cases on the StaFi Chain.
StaFiHub users may obtain ICS-20 $FIS issued on StaFiHub in the following 2 ways:
1) Bridge Native FIS on the StaFi chain through the rBridge to ICS-20 $FIS.
2) Use the Fee Station to exchange for ICS-20 $FIS with your Cosmos Ecosystem tokens like $ATOM.
Please take note that $FIS tokens on Coinbase and Binance exchanges are ERC-20 $FIS tokens, which cannot be used as the gas fee on StaFiHub. However, you may swap your ERC-20 FIS tokens into the native FIS tokens on the StaFi Chain through rBridge, then proceed to swap it again into ICS-20 FIS tokens on the StaFiHub chain.

The remaining three validators will be operated by the StaFi Foundation as a reserve for future StaFiHub partners which integrate liquid staking solutions or staking derivatives of StaFiHub. After the integrations have taken place, validators operated by the StaFi Foundation will be replaced by partners.
We have received many applications from other validators, and will be onboarding them during Stage 2 of the StaFiHub Validator Program after the Mainnet Beta has stabilized. As for the applicants not included in the Genesis Validators list, you are encouraged to pay attention to the Stage 2 of StaFiHub Validator Program. New validator applications are still welcome at the moment.
