Community Newsletter #9 — June 2021

Persistence liquid staking

The month of June came and went in a flash, while our team forged new paths through the metaverse and pushed forward despite market volatility. At Persistence we believe there’s no better time to focus on BUIDLing than when the market is uncertain. As you’ll soon read below, we certainly lived up to our own mantra, closing out yet another highly successful month.

In June we released the Alpha version of our liquid staking protocol, pSTAKE, along with a huge trove of educational materials in order to ready our community for pSTAKE’s upcoming mainnet launch. Furthermore, XPRT was listed on Osmosis, the first AMM DEX on Cosmos. Our pools on Osmosis have generated hefty volumes as the community excitedly explores new interchain avenues. We also reached the major milestone of 1 million blocks minted on the Persistence mainnet!

In addition, Tushar Aggarwal, our CEO, appeared on numerous podcasts and we began experimenting with Twitter Spaces in order to create further transparency and another outlet of communication with our community.

This barely scratches the surface. Read below to learn more.

Partnering With Injective Protocol to Unlock New DeFi Opportunities for XPRT & PoS Assets! 🚀

We recently partnered with Injective Protocol, a fully decentralized layer-2 DeFi protocol. Our integration into their platform will allow assets from the Persistence chain (starting with XPRT) to be used for perpetual futures trading.

Another exciting development we’re collaborating with Injective on is Liquid Staked Assets, created in collaboration with Persistence’s pSTAKE application! Representative assets minted via pSTAKE will be listed on Injective as a new derivatives class.

Together with Injective, we’re expanding trading opportunities for holders of Persistence-native assets while also unlocking new DeFi functionality for stakers on major PoS chains.

Persistence Mainnet Surpassed 1 Million Blocks 🦾

On June 5th the Persistence mainnet broke the 1,000,000 blocks minted threshold, demonstrating the robustness of the network, and ultimately showcasing our longevity to thrive in any market.
