Staked

Staked helps investors compound their cryptocurrency investments by participating in staking or lending.

Overview

Staked is a US-based digital currency staking platform. The company works with cryptocurrency funds, exchanges, and custodians to facilitate institutional-grade staking. As a noncustodial staking platform, Staked enables investors in Proof-of-Stake (PoS) networks to easily and securely compound their holdings. Staked's mission is to help investors earn yield from staking without relinquishing custody of their crypto assets. By providing infrastructure as a service, Staked removes significant barriers to entry while allowing investors to optimize rewards. Staked's multi-tier signing and listening node architecture give investors security, scalability, and decentralization. Staked was founded in March 2018 by Tim Ogilvie, Seth Riney, and Jonathan Marcus.
