The main work in May was focused on the development of StaFiHub. rIRIS, the first staking derivative that we constructed with a project in the Cosmos ecosystem, has been successfully launched on StaFiHub testnet. The cooperation includes not only development work, but also joint debugging, marketing, etc. Also, a large number of users in the community have joined the testing of rIRIS and submitted lots of feedback. At present, the optimization work is proceeding in an orderly manner.
We are still working on the migration of rDEX and the optimization of the election algorithm, which will be launched on the StaFiHub testnet one after another in June. In terms of cooperation, we have communicated with many projects in the Cosmos ecosystem. The new rTokens will be released on StaFiHub testnet soon. Let’s look forward to it together.
StaFi is the first DeFi protocol unlocking liquidity of staked assets. Users can stake PoS tokens through StaFi and receive rTokens in return, which are available for trading, while still earning staking rewards. rToken is a synthetic staking derivative issued by StaFi to users when users stake PoS tokens through StaFi rToken App . rTokens are anchored to the PoS tokens staked by users and the corresponding staking rewards. rTokens can be transferred and traded at any time.
