Lido Begins the process of integrating DVT technology with support from InfStones
Lido is proposing a major innovation in Ethereum staking through the "Simple DVT" module, in collaboration with Obol Network and SSV Network, with a Snapshot vote planned for October 26, 2023, coinciding with the launch of Lido's third DVT testnet. This initiative signifies Lido's commitment to a more secure and decentralized Ethereum staking landscape and its efforts to prepare for future scalability. Although the mainnet deployment starts cautiously, success metrics over three months could lead to an expansion of validator counts, and the support from InfStones underscores Lido's commitment to strengthening Ethereum's decentralized ecosystem.
Stride Network, Partnered with InfStones, Plans Merger with Cosmos Hub
Stride Network, renowned for its liquid staking services, is considering merging with the Cosmos Hub, transitioning from a consumer chain to an integral part of the Cosmos ecosystem, led by a proposal from Stride Labs' co-founder Vishal Talasani to convert their STRD governance token to Cosmos' ATOM token. The merger aims for a deep integration that enables native liquid staking within the Cosmos ecosystem, fully incorporating Stride Network into the Cosmos Hub framework, building upon Stride's previous integration of Cosmos IBC and ICS. Stride's substantial $36.94 million staked total value locked (TVL), primarily in staked ATOM, cements its position as the leading liquid staking protocol in the Cosmos ecosystem. Stride selected InfStones, an original Stride validator, to bolster LST's presence and enhance the dependability and efficiency of their infrastructure, enabling them to deliver an even more seamless experience to their users.
