Crypto staking enables users to participate in the governance and consensus of a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) blockchain, earning rewards for their contribution. While Proof-of-Work blockchains utilise energy expending miners to validate and generate new blocks, PoS networks elect validators who stake (lock up) collateral to validate and add new blocks to the chain. Validators earn rewards when their proposed block reaches consensus by being verified by other validators on the network. Should the network deem the new block invalid, the selected validator is penalised in the form of having some of their staked holdings slashed. This process ensures that every new block added to the chain contains transactions that are verifiable, thereby guaranteeing the status and security of the network.
Staking on-chain can be a complex process. Typically, validators must lock up their staked holdings for a certain period of time known as the bonding period. Bonding periods vary based on the network and often do not permit for validators to unstake their holdings until completion. Additionally, many networks subject staked funds to an unbonding period before which validators can withdraw their rewards, making it difficult to access funds quickly if needed.
Valour’s Staking ETPs allow investors to earn passive staking rewards on their holdings. Staking is the process of allocating crypto holdings as collateral to support the blockchain’s operations in return for network rewards. By staking the underlying of Valour’s staking ETPs, investors could earn additional income above the underlying base exposure.
Staking ETPs eliminate the technical onboarding requirements associated with individual staking. By partnering with leading staking infrastructure providers, Valour takes care of all technical aspects of the process, making staking more accessible and seamless for investors. Valour’s staked ETPs provide investors with a means of contributing towards the future of decentralised finance. In addition to earning rewards for participation, staking helps ensure the overall security of the network, contributing towards its long term success and continued adoption.
Valour’s ETPs benefit from slashing insurance provided by Valour’s staking partners which offers an element of protection against the risk of losing staked tokens as a result of network issues or other factors.. For investors, this translates into additional safeguards over direct staking, in addition to the 100% collateralisation feature of Valour’s asset-backed program.
Valour has partnered with leading regulated custodians and staking service providers in the structuring of our staked products. Valour’s Ethereum Physical Staking ETP is custodied by VQF registered Copper Markets (Switzerland) AG, and staking services are undertaken by industry leading infrastructure provider, Blockdaemon. In selecting its partners, Valour has prioritised ensuring optimal security of the product’s underlying, ensuring seamless, non-custodial, 100% fully collateralised staking at all times.
