In 2023, we're proud to have added staking support for nearly 20 new networks. This edition of Reflections recaps all the networks we have added support for this year and how you can start staking with Chorus One. Dive in!

  • MARS

Mars is a multichain credit protocol enabling borrowing and lending primitives in the Cosmos. With Mars v2, the protocol introduced "Rover credit accounts" to Osmosis. Much like Binance subaccounts, credit accounts act as transferrable NFT containers where users can deposit assets, and use them as collateral for borrowing, spot or margin trading, leveraged yield farming, and hedging — all with a single liquidation point.

  • Gnosis

Gnosis Chain is EVM-based and secured by over 100k validators around the world. It hosts a very diverse validator set and it is propped up by the community governance of GnosisDAO to ensure it remains credibly neutral at a much lower price point than Ethereum mainnet. It powers an ecosystem of DApps including POAP (Proof of Attendance Protocol, the original NFT protocol), Dark Forest (a fully decentralized strategy game, built with zkSNARK technology), Giveth (public goods, peer-to-peer direct funding platform), and much more.

Stake GNO:

  • Quicksilver

Quicksilver is a permissionless and sovereign Cosmos liquid staking protocol that provides liquid staking to all networks in the Cosmos Ecosystem. The Quicksilver protocol is one of the first blockchains to participate in Interchain Security, and will become a Consumer Chain of the Cosmos Hub. By staking your tokens with Quicksilver, you receive a representative token (qTOKEN) that can be used later on in DeFi.

Stake QCK:

  • KYVE

Kyve is a PoS blockchain built with the Cosmos SDK. It has two layers: the Chain Layer and the Protocol Layer, each with its own node infrastructure.

Kyve aims to revolutionize customized access to on- and off-chain data by providing fast and easy tooling for decentralized data validation, immutability, and retrieval. With these tools, developers, data engineers, and others can easily and reliably access the trustless data they need in order to continue building the future of Web3.

  • Noble

Noble is a Cosmos application-specific blockchain purpose-built for native asset issuance. Noble brings the efficiency and interoperability of native assets to the wider Cosmos ecosystem, starting with USDC. Noble’s vision is to be the world’s premier issuance hub for digital assets that connect to other blockchains seamlessly. Noble leverages the Cosmos-SDK – a flexible toolkit that allows developers to leverage existing modules, and to seamlessly integrate custom modules that add virtually unlimited functionality for asset issuers onthe Noble blockchain.

  • Onomy

The Onomy Network is a Proof-of-Stake blockchain constructed using the Cosmos SDK framework, which enables it to achieve scalability by leveraging the infrastructure supported by a network of institutional validators, like Chorus One.

With a block time of just five seconds, and its high throughput, low latency, and low fees features, the Onomy network is made to be ideal for financial transactions.

Stake NOM:

  • Aptos

Aptos is a high-performance layer 1 proof-of-stake protocol that aims to be one of the safest and most scalable protocols, with a core focus on user experience. It was initiated by Aptos Labs, a venture founded by former engineers and scientists from Diem (formerly Facebook), with a vision to build their own, permissionless blockchain. Aptos is built using the Move programming language along with the Move Virtual Machine for dApp development. The team behind Aptos was actively involved in the development of Move, with a focus on flexibility, customizable transaction logic, and provability to enhance the safety of writing smart contracts.

Stake APT:

  • Sui

Sui Network is a permissionless Layer-1 blockchain and smart contract designed from the ground up to make digital assets ownership fast, secure, and accessible to the next generation of Web3 users. Its pioneering architecture is implemented to create a world-class developer experience, in addition to vastly improving performance and user experience of L1 blockchains.

Stake SUI:

  • Neutron

Neutron is a blockchain network that brings Smart Contracts into the Cosmos-family blockchains using CosmWasm. Neutron works with networks using the IBC protocol. Neutron security (block validation) is provided by the Cosmos Hub network using Interchain Security.

  • Archway

Archway Network is a testament to visionary architecture. By leveraging the Cosmos SDK, Tendermint, and CosmWasm, the Archway team have built an infrastructure that excels in speed, scalability, and security. What truly sets Archway apart is its seamless interoperability through the Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) protocol, which fosters a cohesive ecosystem where data and value can flow freely between different blockchains.

Unlike L1 blockchains that primarily focus on token distribution to early participants, Archway takes a different approach. It recognizes the value and impact of developers and builders by incentivizing them based on their contributions to the network. This unique model aims to level the playing field among developers, providing equal access to capital and support, regardless of their connections or associations.

  • GoGoPool

GoGoPool is the first permissionless staking protocol built for Avalanche Subnets, allowing node operators to launch validators cheaper and faster using the GGP token. Currently, we cater to node operators and liquid stakers.

  • Play3ull

PLAYA3ULL is a Gaming Publisher that merges PC-based games with crypto. The project uses the 3ULL token in the games and produce that token from Nodes.

  • Stride

Stride is a multichain liquid staking zone (appchain) on the Cosmos Blockchain. Stride allows users to stake any IBC-compatible tokens, and receive stTokens in return, which are redeemable for the original token at a 1:1 ratio. By staking their tokens using Stride, users will be able to earn staking rewards, while also retaining liquidity in the form of stTokens, which will allow them to take advantage of Cosmos DeFi and pursue more yields there.

  • dYdX v4

dYdX v4 is the latest iteration of dYdX, one of the most prominent decentralized exchanges and premier trading platform for cryptocurrency.  The DEX initially launched as an Ethereum-based Layer 2 solution and has now made a significant move by transitioning to its dedicated blockchain, known as the dYdX Chain (or dYdX v4), built using the Cosmos SDK. We've compiled all the essential information about the chain, complete with an in-depth exploration of their move to Cosmos and Chorus One's ongoing involvement with dYdX since the very outset in a comprehensive guide. Check it out here.

  • Celestia

Celestia is a modular network that makes it easy for builders to launch their own blockchain by focusing solely on data availability. It allows developers to easily deploy blockchains on top of Celestia, much like deploying smart contracts. This accessibility empowers individuals to create their own unique rollups and blockchains, serving a multitude of purposes and ensuring scalability for a broader audience.
