Stakin’s Very First Stakin Weekly Twitter Spaces
Last Friday, the 4th of March, we hosted our very first Twitter Spaces with the Cosmos Project Wizard that joined our team recently. We’d like to thank all participants for joining. If you missed out, we will be publishing a recap video on our channels shortly. These Twitter Spaces will be a ongoing initiative to keep our community up-to-date on events happening in the Cosmos ecosystem.
Stakin To Offer Validator Services for Evmos
We are excited to announce that Stakin has been chosen to be a part of the genesis Evmos validator set on Mainnet, assisting in the support of the blockchain and its ecosystem. Evmos is an application-agnostic chain that will be interoperable with the Ethereum Mainnet, EVM-compatible settings, and other Cosmos ecosystem networks via IBC, allowing users and developers to connect seamlessly between chains. Evmos intends to be Cosmos' EVM Hub, making it simple to deploy and communicate smart contracts within the Cosmos ecosystem.

Persistence Network Upgrade
On the 3rd of March, a Persistence Network upgrade was conducted. Stakin has upgraded its nodes to v.0.2.3 and the validator is up and running smoothly.
DISCLAIMER: This is not financial advice. Staking, delegation, and cryptocurrencies involve a high degree of risk, and there is always the possibility of loss, including the failure of all staked digital assets. Additionally, delegators are at risk of slashing in case of security or liveness faults on some protocols. We advise you to do your due diligence before choosing a validator.
