We’re proud to announce our partnership with Fordefi, a leading MPC wallet platform and web3 gateway that enables institutions to seamlessly connect to dApps across networks, while securing their  digital assets. This partnership facilitates Chorus One’s OPUS customers to stake and unstake multiple tokens using the Fordefi wallet inside OPUS.

The Fordefi wallet

Fordefi’s wallet is a secure solution designed to provide enhanced security and privacy for users' digital assets through MPC (Multi-Party Computation) technology. The MPC wallet employs a distributed key generation process, where each key share is created separately and  is held by different parties. This ensures that no single entity has access to the complete private key, mitigating the risk of single points of failure or attacks.  

Additionally, Fordefi's wallet provides users with enhanced security against various attack vectors, including private key theft, collusion attacks, and web attacks.

Going forward, Chorus One’s OPUS users will be able to stake and unstake across numerous chains using Fordefi’s wallet, thus leveraging its security features.


OPUS is Chorus One’s universal staking solution that allows institutions to stake quickly across multiple chains and earn high rewards while having complete control over their assets. It is aimed at expediting institutions' staking activities, streamlining the staking process, and enabling them to enjoy the benefits of higher rewards, increased efficiency, reduced costs, and unparalleled flexibility.

Key Benefits of using OPUS

  • Access to high rewards: Earn the highest staking rewards which include network emissions, transaction fees, and MEV. Chorus One does extensive research in MEV extraction and strategies to optimise yields.
  • Convenience: Using Fordefi’s wallet makes it very simple for tokenholders to stake with Chorus One. Users can start staking with just a few clicks while Chorus One takes care of all the technical requirements on the backend.
  • Security: Aside from Chorus One’s array of hardware security models and slashing protection that guarantee the security of the nodes, Fordefi wallet’s native MPC security features adds further layers of protection to users' staked assets.

“Fordefi's cutting-edge DeFi-focused wallet empowers institutions to stake with unparalleled confidence, fortified by advanced layers of security. Together, we’re committed to making staking accessible for a broader audience.” - Felix Lutsch, Chief Commercial Officer, Chorus One

“Chorus One’s expertise in the industry offers a new level of staking excellence for our institutional customers. We’re thrilled to empower our users with seamless access to staking and unrivaled opportunities in DeFi. ” - Josh Schwartz, CEO and Cofounder, Fordefi
