Chainlink Network onboards Stakin as a Node Operator
We’re excited to announce that Stakin—an infrastructure operator for Proof-of-Stake (PoS) public blockchains—is joining the group of node operators that help service the billions of data requests received through Chainlink. By joining the Chainlink Network as a node operator, Stakin is able to play a significant role in expanding the fast-growing smart contract economy.
We are helping ensure the reliable provision of external data to smart contracts, thus performing a critical service that helps unlock next-generation blockchain use cases. This also enables us to open up a new revenue stream in the form of receiving rewards for network contributions.
Stakin is an infrastructure operator for public Proof-of-Stake (PoS) blockchains, offering non-custodial delegation services. We enable PoS blockchain cryptocurrency holders to earn interest on their holdings and take part in decentralized governance while remaining in possession of their own cryptocurrencies.
Stakin serves institutional crypto players, foundations, custodians, exchanges as well as a large community of retail token holders. Driven by demand from institutional customers and the community, Stakin provides services for multiple blockchains including leading ecosystems such as Cosmos, Solana, Polygon, Polkadot, and more.
We chose Chainlink because it is the industry leader in the oracle network space. Chainlink has several critical features that make it the most attractive oracle solution for both Web3 applications and node operators, including:
- Data Integrity — Chainlink nodes cryptographically sign all data supplied on-chain to verify its origin, preventing man-in-the-middle attacks.
- Blockchain Agnostic — Chainlink nodes are compatible with any blockchain environment, serving as a single gateway to sell data to any current or future blockchain.
- Widely Adopted — Chainlink is the most widely used oracle network in the blockchain industry, providing access to a vast addressable market of potential data consumers.
- Provably Secure — Chainlink is thoroughly audited open-source software that already secures billions of dollars in value, showcasing its ability to trigger the automation of high-value smart contacts live in production.
“We’re excited to be joining the Chainlink Network as a node operator,” stated Edouard Lavidalle, Co-founder of Stakin. “By helping to ensure the provision of high-quality price data on-chain through Chainlink, Stakin is helping accelerate both the growth of Chainlink as the industry-leading oracle network and the mass adoption of smart contracts.”
Chainlink is the industry standard for building, accessing, and selling oracle services needed to power hybrid smart contracts on any blockchain. Chainlink oracle networks provide smart contracts with a way to reliably connect to any external API and leverage secure off-chain computations for enabling feature-rich applications. Chainlink currently secures tens of billions of dollars across DeFi, insurance, gaming, and other major industries, and offers global enterprises and leading data providers a universal gateway to all blockchains.

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.
