Stakely Monthly Review | May Edition 2022

June 6, 2022

As every month, our Stakely's monthly review is here to update you on what's going on in the crypto ecosystem. May has undoubtedly been a month that has tested many investors, as well as the management skills of many other projects. But let's take a look at how those projects in which Stakely is a validator have fared.

Let's start by reviewing Stakely's own figures - this month the number of delegators on Stakely has grown to 20,050 users! And the community on Twitter has reached 13,145 followers! Without a doubt, our community deserves a lot of recognition. We want to thank you for the support and trust we receive from you, this motivates us to keep working and continue improving to offer you high-quality staking service.

We keep doing our bit for the validator community. The experience, knowledge and great performance of the technical team are the qualities that have made projects like Sifchain decide to count on Stakely to manage their community and social networks in Spanish. A support and dissemination service that most of our users already know and have the opportunity to enjoy in our usual channels.

We keep providing technical support for all the networks we participate in on the Telegram Stakely Chat (English) and Stakely Chat Español (Spanish) channels. In addition, you can keep up to date with everything relevant in the crypto world in the Telegram Announcements Channel, our Twitter, and our Youtube Channel, where you will find step-by-step guides on how to delegate in different networks and much more.

This month we have added Covalent and Evmos to our staking portfolio. In addition to actively participating in the launch of Covalent's mainnet, we have also been one of the first validators of the network.

Remember that Stakely's Faucet is available for more than 20 networks, which will allow you to request tokens enough to pay the fees of your operations in case you have run out of assets.

Updates on our projects

Next, we will review the main networks of which Stakely is a validator. It is appropriate to start with Terra (LUNA), as it has undoubtedly been the big event in the crypto ecosystem this month.


Nothing seemed to foreshadow, despite the many "I told you so" "I saw it coming" after-the-fact comments, what was about to happen. Earlier in the month, Terra was debating the sustainability of the Anchor protocol and the network's algorithmic stable coin UST, the former was making large purchases of Bitcoin to offset the cost of paying bounties and in anticipation that a drop in the price of LUNA would spell trouble for the UST backing.

LTV was up, but transactions on the Dapps were not and despite this the network seemed to have some good fundamentals. A massive dump of 285 million UST in Curve and Binance by a single actor, followed by massive shorts on LUNA and hundreds of posts on Twitter produced a chain reaction that was hard to save.

Despite rescue attempts, the crash was unstoppable and exchanges started to suspend operations with the LUNA and UST pair, to the point that for security reasons the network was forced to stop. The project team together with the community of validators worked hard to find a possible way out of the crisis.

Terraform Labs CEO Do Know did not throw in the towel and insisted on rebuilding the network, creating a new network and a token distribution plan. Global institutions took the opportunity to resume the regulatory debate with the excuse of the incident, and Do Know was summoned by the South Korean parliamentary hearing to learn the details of the collapse and networks such as Polygon, BSC, Near or Fantom offered to host the projects running on Terra.

The exchanges relisted LUNA and the general public seems to accept the plan to revive the network. A new network, Terra 2.0 and a series of airdrops, listings, buybacks and burns. Now all that remains is to wait.
