Stakely Monthly Review | August Edition 2022

September 8, 2022

Hello everyone and welcome to Stakely's monthly review! This summer is coming to an end, and with it, the heat waves, but winter is still to come! Let's see if news like the ETH Merge will keep the atmosphere warm in the crypto world as well.

What's new at Stakely?

We keep expanding our staking family and have now reached a total of 25,200 users! More and more holders are trusting Stakely as their validator. Thank you!

We must also thank the almost 15K followers on Twitter - you encourage us to keep creating content and sharing news concerning the networks we validate for, so that you do not miss a single announcement. Remember! We post a weekly report on Twitter that analyzes the staking status of most of the blockchains we support.

In our Youtube channel you can find new videos with easy tutorials. This week, you'll find two new tutorials: How to use MetaMask and How to stake Persistence $XPRT with Keplr.

Moreover, we added a new network to our portfolio: Tgrade. You have all the necessary information about the project on our website. In addition, you can now stake Solana and Evmos through Trust Wallet.

This month, we discussed about hot topic in the Cosmos ecosystem in our blog: What is Interchain Security in Cosmos and how does it work? Learning about Interchain Security is a must to understand how will future consumer blockchains emerge in the ecosystem.

And remember, you can ask us any question in our Telegram channels Stakely Chat and Stakely Spanish Chat. In addition, you can follow the latest news in the Telegram Announcements Channel, our Twitter, and our Youtube Channel.
