As the Tezos ecosystem moves into a new growth phase, Tezos Capital and Polychain Labs are pleased to announce our new collaborative delegation service to support every sized delegator with superior security and virtually unlimited bond coverage.

Our new delegation service is available at: tz2PdGc7U5tiyqPgTSgqCDct94qd6ovQwP6u

Since launch 9 months ago, the Tezos mainnet has grown from a handful of upstart bakers to a thriving community of hundreds of block producers. The increasingly decentralized network has performed admirably, approaching 98% efficiency on block production and endorsement. With the first on-chain governance upgrade underway, Tezos is moving into uncharted territory for 3rd generation blockchains by having the ecosystem nominate, test, approve and fund protocol upgrades that automatically deploy — keeping the entire Commonwealth moving in the same direction.

The business world is taking note with most major exchanges and custody services signaling their plans for Tezos. Large scale projects for bringing high value assets to Tezos are underway at Elevated Returns, VIAZ, Tezsure, Kalhatti, Chorus Mobility and with many others. The Tezos Foundation is increasing its support for new and innovative Tezos-based solutions, funding geographic-based foundations around the world and designating Tocqueville Group as a tentpole service provider for coordinating the ecosystem.

The professionalism of Tezos demands that Tezos Capital ups its offerings to the community as well. We have been providing delegation services since Day 1 and have consistently ranked among the highest performing services. In fact, our delegation offerings proved so successful that we have been unable to take on any new delegators since Cycle 27 in September of 2018 as we have been constantly bond constrained. To solve our bond needs, we went searching for forward thinking XTZ holders that had an extensive background in securely handling large amounts of cryptocurrency who would consider partnering to further unlock the value of their holdings by providing bond to the ecosystem. We found Polychain Labs.

The Polychain Labs team is the most experienced staking engineering and security team in the industry. Previously from Google, JPL, Coinbase and Cruise Automation, the team has been running the largest Tezos baking operation outside of the Tezos Foundation since Tezos launch, and is also operating the largest Cosmos validator.

When we began to discuss collaboration, it became obvious that the combination of Tezos Capital’s community support with Polychain’s technical competency and XTZ holdings could deliver a superior delegation offering that could accommodate the largest delegators with superior infrastructure, security and customer service.

What you can expect from Tezos Capital + Polychain Labs

  • An experienced, professional team — The same faces from Tezos Capital, Jonas, Lotika and Luke will be there to make sure our delegators have an exceptional customer experience. Joining us are the Polychain Labs technical and business teams — all crypto veterans.

Current Tezos Capital Delegators continue with our ‘Legacy’ service

If you are a current Tezos Capital delegator, delegating to our tz1TDSmoZXwVevLTEvKCTHWpomG76oC9S2fJ wallet, your relationship with Tezos Capital continues uninterrupted at your current 15% fee structure. We are however rebranding your staking wallet to “Tezos Capital Legacy”. Our new wallet will take the name “Tezos Capital”. Existing bond pool members will likewise be unaffected by this change. However, we are stopping the growth of our bond pool associated with the Tezos Capital Legacy wallet and therefore do not anticipate that this wallet will be opened to new delegations beyond its current capacity.

Thank you to all who have supported us and the overall Tezos ecosystem. If you have any questions or concerns, please connect with us at support@tezos.capital, or on twitter @tezoscommunity.
