Persistence liquid staking

Last month will be remembered as a turning point in Persistence’s history. pSTAKE took the stage by force securing its spot as the most efficient liquid staking product in the market. XPRT continued to grow in dominance within Cosmos DeFi, and we continued to forge alliances with industry leaders.

Furthermore, our team hosted many rewarding community events which showcased our innovative multi-chain products. Many onlookers joined the community to build stronger DeFi & staking strategies for the future, realizing pSTAKE’s potential.

Additionally, Persistence leadership took time to hit key media outlets, letting the cryptosphere know we mean business. We are an all-or-nothing team, and we intend to continue bringing different asset classes into DeFi no matter the state of the market.

Get ready for hyperspace!
