Staking Which PoS Token Should I Stake?

<p>We understand that the Proof of Stake (PoS) ecosystem has grown immensely and is still growing at a quick pace. There is now such a large array of network tokens that can be purchased and staked that it can be difficult to know which ones to go for. <br><br>Our team provides exhaustive financial analysis to provide support for only top-tier staking networks. We have been early participants and stakers for networks such as XTZ, ATOM, SOL, DOT, MINA... and proven to have a knack for choosing highly successful networks to stake with. Below we provide you with descriptions, links, and staking mechanics for our list of tokens that we offer staking services for to help you decide which token is best suited for your preferences!<br><br>The following content is for educational and informational purposes only and of a general nature; we make no warranties or representations, whether express or implied, and accept no responsibility, including in relation to the accuracy, completeness, nature, quality, fit for the purpose, or reliability of the content.

With its unique feature of independent sovereignty, blockchains built on cosmos do not need to rely on underlying governance rules, simplifying and increasing the speed for fixes and upgrades. At its core, Cosmos hub is a blockchain that serves as the primary connectivity point in the ecosystem, and in the future it is going to provide shared security among all networks built in the ecosystem. Cosmos native token, ATOM, serves the purpose of paying for transaction fees, can be used to vote on proposals, and can be staked to earn block rewards and helps secure the network. The ecosystem has and is still growing quickly and grabbing a lot of attention in the crypto space.<br><br><strong>Website: </strong><a href="https://cosmos.network/">https://cosmos.network/</a><br><strong>White paper: </strong><a href="https://v1.cosmos.network/resources/whitepaper">https://v1.cosmos.network/resources/whitepaper</a><br><strong>Twitter: </strong><u>https://twitter.com/cosmos</u><br><strong>P2P Staking Page: </strong><a href="https://p2p.org/cosmos">https://p2p.org/cosmos</a><br><strong>Guides: </strong><a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5925248-cosmos-atom-ledger-live-staking-guide">Ledger</a>, <a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5382165-keplr-ledger-cosmos-atom-staking-guide">Kepler + Ledger</a>, <a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5382175-imtoken-comos-atom-staking-guide">ImToken</a></p><p>  </p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2022/02/image-34.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="455" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2022/02/image-34.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2022/02/image-34.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2022/02/image-34.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w2400/2022/02/image-34.png 2400w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>Polkadot is a layer 0, decentralised, parallelised multi-chain blockchain system with the main goals being security and building interoperability amongst networks.

Using a Proof-of-History (PoH) consensus mechanism, Solana has the capacity to handle an impressive 710,000 transactions per second with extremely low transaction fees. PoH is similar to PoS, however it uses an element of time providing specific timestamps to blocks, improving the organisation of block validation and allowing for a quicker sequencing. Using the RUST programming language, Solana enables the creation of smart contracts which can be run in a parallel manner.

Indexing is the process of organising blockchain data into subgraphs which allows developers and dapps to find and make use of information in a much quicker manner by simply querying for it. <em>Indexers</em>, like P2P Validator, stake GRT tokens and run nodes in order to index subgraphs, and by doing so earn GRT token rewards. <em>Curators</em> use GRT tokens to signal which subgraphs they believe are the most interesting to index and will earn rewards if their subgraph becomes popular in the future. <em>Delegators</em>, can delegate their GRT tokens to indexers to earn a portion of the indexing rewards earned by indexers. Using this architecture, theGraph manages to create a trustless and decentralised system for organising blockchain data, with the vision of becoming the google of blockchains. GRT is a utility token, deeply involved in the Network economics on day-by-day basis.<br><br><strong>Website: </strong><a href="https://thegraph.com/en/">https://thegraph.com/en/</a><strong><br>Twitter: </strong><a href="https://twitter.com/graphprotocol">https://twitter.com/graphprotocol</a><br><strong>P2P Staking Page: </strong><a href="https://p2p.org/thegraph">https://p2p.org/thegraph</a><strong><br>Guide: </strong><a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5439378-metamask-the-graph-grt-staking-guide">Metamask</a> </p><p>  </p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2022/02/image-32.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="455" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2022/02/image-32.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2022/02/image-32.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2022/02/image-32.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w2400/2022/02/image-32.png 2400w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>Tezos is an open-source blockchain network for peer-to-peer transactions. It serves as an decentralised application platform for deploying and executing highly secure smart contracts in a simple manner. It raised an impressive $232M during its ICO in July 2017 and managed to ride out the bear market out, reaching all time highs of $3.80 in Feb 2020. Tezos solves some of the drawbacks of Ethereum: High gas fees, disagreements on upgrades, and smart contract issues. Tezos is one of the first to run a delegated proof of stake (Dpos) consensus mechanism, where “bakers” (such as P2P Validator) secure and manage the network by validating transactions and are advocates in the governance of the chain. Unlike other blockchains, Tezos uses a self-amendment process to upgrade without the need for long winded and costly forks. New proposals are brought forwards and voted on by bakers. If enough support is given to the proposal, it is tested and executed. XTZ token holders can delegate their tokens to bakers who support their vision, creating a democratic and decentralised system for the growth of the network.<br><br><strong>Website: </strong><a href="https://tezos.com/">https://tezos.com/</a><br><strong>White Paper: </strong><a href="https://wiki.tezosagora.org/whitepaper">https://wiki.tezosagora.org/whitepaper</a><br><strong>Twitter: </strong><u>https://twitter.com/tezos</u><br><strong>P2P Staking Page:</strong> <a href="https://p2p.org/tezos">https://p2p.org/tezos</a><br><strong>Guides: </strong><a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5448853-trust-wallet-tezos-xtz-staking-guide">Trust Wallet</a>, <a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5336393-kukai-wallet-tezos-xtz-staking-guide">Kukai Wallet</a></p><p>  </p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2022/03/image-1.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="455" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2022/03/image-1.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2022/03/image-1.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2022/03/image-1.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w2400/2022/03/image-1.png 2400w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>Kava is an open sourced, cross-chain, decentralised lending platform that runs on the Cosmos blockchain. Users can use their cryptocurrencies as collateral in exchange for their stable coin, USDX. Users of the Kava platform will receive KAVA for their participation. Once a loan is returned, lenders will need to pay a “stability” fee in KAVA tokens which gets burned and reduces the overall supply of KAVA tokens. KAVA is an inflationary token but the increase in supply is distributed to stakers. Therefore, KAVA stakers could see high returns as they receive staking rewards to combat the inflationary aspect of KAVA, but also see their tokens increase in value once the Kava platform activity grows and more KAVA tokens get burned to pay for fees.</p><p><strong><strong>Website: </strong></strong><a href="https://www.kava.io/">https://www.kava.io/</a><strong><strong>‌</strong></strong><br><strong><strong>‌Twitter: </strong></strong><a href="https://twitter.com/kava_platform">https://twitter.com/kava_platform</a>‌<br>‌<strong><strong>P2P Staking Page: </strong></strong><a href="https://p2p.org/kava">https://p2p.org/kava</a><strong><strong>‌</strong></strong><br><strong><strong>‌Guide: </strong></strong><a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5470329-keplr-wallet-kava-staking-guide">Keplr</a></p><p>   </p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2022/02/image-37.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="455" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2022/02/image-37.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2022/02/image-37.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2022/02/image-37.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w2400/2022/02/image-37.png 2400w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>Cardano is a third generation blockchain based on fundamental research with a goal to provide a highly scalable smart-contract platform for financial and social decentralised applications.

Oasis native token is a staking unit with limited liquidity and low volatility serving the purpose of securing the network and incentivizing nodes to follow the protocol rules. Transaction fees are also denominated in ROSE as well as a payment for provided computations.</p><p><strong>Website: </strong><a href="https://oasisprotocol.org/">https://oasisprotocol.org/</a><strong><br>Twitter: </strong><u>https://twitter.com/OasisProtocol</u><br><strong>P2P Staking Page: </strong><a href="https://p2p.org/oasis">https://p2p.org/oasis</a><strong><br>Guides:</strong> <a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5595660-oasis-rose-staking-guide">Oasis official wallet</a></p><p>   </p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2022/02/image-41.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="455" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2022/02/image-41.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2022/02/image-41.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2022/02/image-41.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w2400/2022/02/image-41.png 2400w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>Terra protocol is a public blockchain built using the cosmos SDK with the intention to create a mass payment processing system as well as creating algorithmic stablecoins.

NEAR is designed with security and performance at the core, allowing developers to create applications which manage high-value assets including money, identity and contractual information, whilst at the same time allowing for quick and efficient access. With a focus on providing developers with a clean, user-friendly experience, NEARs approach to development is one focused around accessibility and scaling blockchain applications to accelerate the world’s transition to open, decentralized technologies. The protocol is a public, sharded, developer-friendly, proof-of-stake blockchain, making it an efficient platform due to its scalability and ease of use. NEAR is compatible with Ethereum 1.0 today providing a complete integration with Solidity contracts (without the need for rewrites). Furthermore, an ETH-NEAR bridge allows for cross-chain interoperability and communication. This provides developers with flexibility and removes the need to fully commit to just one tech stack.</p><p><strong>Website: </strong><a href="https://near.org/">https://near.org/</a><strong><br>Twitter: </strong><a href="https://twitter.com/nearprotocol">https://twitter.com/nearprotocol</a><strong><br>Whitepaper: </strong><a href="https://near.org/papers/the-official-near-white-paper/">https://near.org/papers/the-official-near-white-paper/</a><br><strong>P2P Staking Page: </strong><a href="https://p2p.org/near">https://p2p.org/near</a><br><strong>Guide: </strong>​​<a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5439407-near-near-staking-guide">Near Wallet</a></p><p>    </p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2022/02/image-44.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="455" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2022/02/image-44.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2022/02/image-44.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2022/02/image-44.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w2400/2022/02/image-44.png 2400w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>The Mina protocol is best described as the world's lightest blockchain. It has been built to maintain a constant size of 22 kb no matter how much it grows in usage. This allows any user to verify the whole protocol history since it’s genesis block without needing large amounts of storage. This is achieved by using recursive zero-knowledge proofs (zk-SNARKs), to verify that the information is valid without needing to reveal it. This constant size also allows the network to scale in terms of decentralisation since it’s much easier for anyone to run a node. The native token, MINA, is required to participate in block production. It can also be used to purchase SNARK proofs via the Snarketplace. Snapps (SNARK-powered decentralised apps), allow MINA participants to benefit from a vast array of use cases. Potential use cases include Verification of Asset Ownership and Proof of Trade. Both aim to solve current DeFI problems that users experience everyday.<br><br><strong>Website: </strong><a href="https://minaprotocol.com/">https://minaprotocol.com/</a><strong><br>Twitter: </strong><a href="https://twitter.com/MinaProtocol">https://twitter.com/MinaProtocol</a><br><strong>P2P Staking Page: </strong><a href="https://p2p.org/mina">https://p2p.org/mina</a><strong><br>Guides: </strong><a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5307251-clorio-mina-mina-staking-guide">Clorio</a>, <a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5326940-auro-mina-mina-staking-guide">Auro</a>, <a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5341996-stakingpower-mina-mina-staking-guide">StakingPower</a></p><p>  </p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2022/02/image-47.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="455" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2022/02/image-47.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2022/02/image-47.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2022/02/image-47.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w2400/2022/02/image-47.png 2400w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>Elrond is a massively scalable, fast and secure blockchain that utilises sharding to achieve incredibly cheap and fast transactions.

Agoric simplifies building an application allowing developers to focus on it's purpose and makes interaction with contracts much safer. With the Zoe framework developed by Agoric even a buggy contract won't lead to the loss of funds put inside as they become automatically escrowed.

Cosmos, Staking, Kava, Terra, Regen Lost in Cosmos explorers...

<p>Existing Cosmos explorers show limited information. In some cases, reward withdrawal happens not only by initiating <code>withdraw</code> transaction and there are unobvious events, which cause that action. We have added these hidden events to P2P Dashboard, <strong><strong>implemented full reward history across all Cosmos Hub versions and opened it for community</strong></strong>. Below, I will walk through the topic in detail with examples.</p><h3 id="transparency-limit"><strong>Transparency limit</strong></h3><p>Every transaction that is recorded in non-private blockchain can easily be retrieved for analytical or other purposes providing clarity for end users. With such transparency everyone can get a trusted record of any event since the start of the network. But is it really an easy task for someone without deep knowledge in code and various API endpoints to get all the data they need?</p><p>You may argue that there are multiple explorers built for this purpose but each of them focuses on various goals and doesn’t give a complete picture of all events happening in a particular network. For an ordinary user like me, explorers act as a window in this magic world of blockchains and <strong><strong>our understanding is limited by the events various tools decide to display</strong></strong>.</p><p>Blockchains are still new and complex to understand. The increasing number of projects with a different logic and various triggers is aggravating. Transparency matters especially for financial transfers and events that can be used for accounting purposes. For example, in Proof-Of-Stake blockchains it can be a withdrawal of accumulated rewards.</p><p>A diversity of high-quality explorers is significant for building user commitment to the network and facilitating trust although more tools do not always result in better visibility. Some explorers focus more on usability, which is also very important but it still is not conductive to increasing transparency for users of the network.</p><h3 id="unobvious-events-in-tendermint-blockchains"><strong>Unobvious events in Tendermint blockchains</strong></h3><p>Let's take a look at the reward withdrawal process in Cosmos Hub. Surplus accumulates in a validator pool and can be withdrawn to the corresponding staking address manually. Basically, a delegator withdraws rewards at any point of time to receive them on address. Explorers show this operation with names like GetReward or Withdraw Reward. In fact that's not the only action that triggers reward withdrawal.</p><h4 id="example-27-03-2020-"><strong><strong><strong>Example</strong></strong> (27.03.2020)</strong></h4><p>Let's take a random account and check the information about its balance on<a href="https://www.mintscan.io/account/cosmos1d5lu67hu3lhqtw6zyv7uy4gkfpdtfnzxw0wga8"> Mintscan</a> block explorer.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2020/09/1-5.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1784" height="547" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2020/09/1-5.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2020/09/1-5.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2020/09/1-5.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2020/09/1-5.png 1784w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2020/09/2-8.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1799" height="685" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2020/09/2-8.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2020/09/2-8.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2020/09/2-8.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2020/09/2-8.png 1799w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>If we calculate total balances using this transaction data we should get:</p><ul><li>Received: <em><em>484,7076 ATOM</em></em></li><li>Delegated: <em><em>474 ATOM</em></em></li><li><em><em>Tx Fees: 0,015 ATOM</em></em></li><li>Available: <strong><strong><em><em>10,692625 ATOM</em></em></strong></strong></li></ul><p>And here are values from<a href="https://www.mintscan.io/account/cosmos1d5lu67hu3lhqtw6zyv7uy4gkfpdtfnzxw0wga8"> Mintscan</a>:</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2020/09/3-7.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1890" height="532" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2020/09/3-7.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2020/09/3-7.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2020/09/3-7.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2020/09/3-7.png 1890w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>It is also true for the same address on <a href="https://cosmos.bigdipper.live/account/cosmos1d5lu67hu3lhqtw6zyv7uy4gkfpdtfnzxw0wga8">Forbole</a>:</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2020/09/4-4.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1889" height="570" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2020/09/4-4.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2020/09/4-4.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2020/09/4-4.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2020/09/4-4.png 1889w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>We see an additional 0,971002 ATOM on the available balance, but where did they come from if there was no withdraw transaction made by this account?

Staking How to delegate Cosmos Atoms using Lunie wallet

<p>Lunie (previous name “Voyager”) is an official audited web wallet and UI for interacting with the Cosmos Hub. The process of sending, staking and redelegating atoms could be done in a simple and secure way. Lunie will not ask for your private keys or seed phrases. To interact with it you need to have Ledger device. Following this two-step guide will not take more than 5-10 minutes.</p><blockquote><em><em><strong><strong>Note:</strong></strong> If you participated in the fundraiser, you should be in possession of a 12-word mnemonic. When setting up a Ledger wallet, enter the seed phrase to access your digital assets obtained through an ICO. We advise you to connect a new Ledger device, in case of replacing the seed phrase on the working device, all data will be overwritten.</em></em></blockquote><h2 id="step-1-set-up-your-ledger"><strong>Step 1.

Staking Introducing P2P Validator

<p>Hello, world! We are building P2P Validator — the GUI for painless blockchain assets staking across 9+ Proof-Of-Stake networks. We support Tezos XTZ mainnet, Polkadot, Cosmos and IRISnet testnets from the beginning, and ready to take Nucypher, Dfinity and Solana on board.</p><p>Our mission is to positively influence the development of Proof-Of-Stake technology and improve existing networks by mindful alternate proposals while offering token holders to hedge their staking rewards on the other hand.</p><p>Whether you chose to delegate your digital assets to P2P Validator or not, we welcome you to join our social channels, educational hub and use our DApps, all of which will be open-source.</p><p><strong><strong>Public website:</strong></strong> <a href="https://p2p.org/?utm_source=1_post&amp;utm_medium=creds_link&amp;utm_campaign=blog">p2p.org</a></p><p><strong><strong>Medium:</strong></strong> <a href="http://medium.com/p2peconomy">medium.com/p2peconomy</a></p><p><strong><strong>Twitter:</strong></strong> <a href="http://twitter.com/p2pvalidator">twitter.com/p2pvalidator</a></p><p><strong><strong>Telegram:</strong></strong> <a href="http://t.me/p2porg">t.me/p2porg</a></p><p><strong><strong>By choosing a right delegate, supporting crucial network alternating decisions and first of all — by fully accepting and acting in course with decentralized community values and code of conduct, we will definitely achieve Proof-Of-Stake social and algorithmic consensus.</strong></strong></p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2020/09/1.jpeg" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1000" height="666" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2020/09/1.jpeg 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2020/09/1.jpeg 1000w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><h3 id="why-delegate-to-us"><strong>Why delegate to us?</strong></h3><p><strong><strong>Simplicity &amp; Effectiveness.</strong></strong> It’s unbelievably easy to stake your assets across different networks with us.

Each P2P Validator community member is free to stay anonymous to others as well as hide their financial data, if feeling so, but not necessarily should. Each user is free to bring a crime to an arbitrage or raise suspicions and doubts against service itself or other members of the community. Arbitrage is done ad-hoc to ensure objectivity.</p><p><strong><strong>Transparency.</strong></strong> All our actions and decisions are clearly visible and transparent to our community. We are sharing all financial data on returns, cycles, stake amount and delegation capacity as well as the status of all networks and our project updates.</p><p><strong><strong>Groundbreaking technology.</strong></strong> P2P Validator is dedicated to combine different networks under a single interface for an investor’s the peace of mind and to save hours usually wasted on switching between wallets and staking service providers. We’re planning to further simplify staking by adding open-source DApps and other tools for community needs.</p><p><strong><strong>Benefit.</strong></strong> Staking exists to generate new coins and revenue. Although we do have static 10% fee implemented to all rewards you get from staking operations, we are 100% sure staking creates additional benefit for our users on the first place. Using our expertise, we pick only the most successful networks and execute smart governance to ensure growing value and high returns.</p><p><strong><strong>Smartness.</strong></strong> Perfection comes from experience. As the general stakeholder, we provide deliberated business decisions based on deep financial analysis and understanding. We are more than interested in avoiding overdelegation and helping networks thrive, as we are staking our own assets on our node.</p><h3 id="community-benefit-roadmap"><strong>Community Benefit Roadmap</strong></h3><ol><li>Educate, demonstrate and influence. As we define ourselves as the general opinion leader, we see our purpose in creating an international educational hub for all things Proof-of-Stake. The part of our revenue is spent on maintaining the highest possible level of educational materials: webinars, guidelines, insights and news representation. The success of each community member affects the network and thus our success also depends on it, so we make sure that each community need is fulfilled within P2P Validator ecosystem.</li><li>Support open-source DApp development. Creating robust yet efficient applications is the part of our strategy to benefit the Proof-of-Stake community. We believe in open-source development and values, so expect all the DApp source code available on Github right from the start. Modes, upgrades and enhancements are welcome. Also we’re planning on supporting independent developers and projects to further enrich the ecosystem.</li><li>Spend our revenue for the community building. We will use a significant percentage of our income to construct a strong and intelligent community of users behind P2P Validator. In long-term this will help to further promote P2P economy and Proof-of-Stake as its integral part, diluting the existing community of enthusiasts, foundations, and core developers with fresh members.</li></ol><h3 id="tl-dr-project-origins"><strong>TL;DR: Project origins</strong></h3><p>P2P Validator has been established in 2018 after a few successful projects delivered by the same team of chaincode developers and crypto enthusiasts.
