We joined the Mina Protocol as a block producer coinciding with the protocol’s mainnet launch. MINA delegators stand to earn up to 24% APR on their tokens for helping to secure the network. In this post, we are detailing why we joined the Mina community and what you need to know about staking on Mina.

Why Mina?

Mina is the first protocol to use recursive zero-knowledge proofs to track the entire state of a blockchain. Anyone in the world on any device can sync up and verify the chain at any point in time and act as a full computing node. Using…


Today, we are excited to announce that we will acquire and continue operating Cryptium Labs validator nodes on Tezos, Near, Polkadot, and Kusama following their announcement to terminate their services to focus on other ventures.

This first of its kind acquisition will enable Cryptium’s delegators staking over $125M worth of assets to continue earning rewards through a professional (and likewise Swiss-based) staking provider.

“Cryptium Labs has been one of the pioneers of Proof-of-Stake. They were among the first professional validators and contributors to protocol development, especially on Tezos. It’s an honor for us to continue operating their nodes and ensure…


Chorus One has received a joint grant from the Celo Foundation and the Interchain Foundation to develop the building blocks for a bridge that will allow Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) between Celo — an EVM-based, mobile-first blockchain platform focused on financial inclusion — and networks built on the Cosmos SDK, such as the Cosmos Hub.

A bridge built upon these components will enable users of the Celo platform to tap into the vast ecosystem of IBC-compatible blockchains and vice versa. …


Today, we are excited to announce our partnership with German-based, regulated custody provider Finoa. Our integration with Finoa will enable retail and institutional customers that use Finoa’s custody solution to utilize Chorus One’s staking services starting with support for Polkadot. Other networks that are part of the portfolio of both companies such as Oasis, NEAR, Centrifuge, and others will follow shortly after.

This partnership signifies a larger movement towards adoption of cryptoassets by institutional players. We are excited to help enable access to the vibrant ecosystem of yield-bearing staking assets to newcomers and established crypto investors alike.

We are constantly…

Anthem — A Multi-Network Staking Platform

Anthem is an essential tool for staking users on blockchain networks. Our goal is to improve non-custodial participation in the staking economy by giving users access to historical data about their investments, as well as allowing them to stake tokens and vote in governance on supported networks.

On Oasis, Anthem allows you to connect any address and access historical portfolio…


Over the past few months, Chorus One has led the Liquid Staking Working Group to investigate approaches and implications of tokenized stake in Proof-of-Stake networks. Today, we are proud to share the final report that we put together as part of this Interchain Foundation research project.

The Liquid Staking Research Report seeks to lay the foundation for a broader discussion around the trajectory of Proof-of-Stake and the role of staking assets in the emerging decentralized financial economy. The 88-page report covers five main topics:

1) The Capital Cost of Locking Staked Assets in Escrow

Staking requires users to lock their assets to earn rewards for securing the underlying network. The…


Chorus One has received a grant by the Web3 Foundation to develop parts of a bridge that will enable Substrate and Cosmos SDK-based blockchains to interoperate as part of the fifth grant cohort.

Such interoperability will allow, for example, a user on a Cosmos SDK blockchain to move TerraUSD coins to Substrate chains to take advantage of applications in the Polkadot ecosystem.

Connecting Two Vibrant Ecosystems

A core piece of Chorus One’s vision is the ability to freely transfer value and information across sovereign blockchain networks and applications. The Polkadot and Cosmos ecosystems have both been at the forefront of cross-chain interoperability.

We are…


Today, we are excited to announce that Chorus One will join the Band Protocol ecosystem as a block validator and data provider.

Why We Built Anthem

The core motivation to build Anthem arose from our own needs as a staking provider:

Currently, most accounting and tax regimes require you to recognize revenues at the time received. When staking on Cosmos, this means that revenues occur every single block, or around 400,000 times a month! So far, there has…


We are excited to announce that Chorus One is joining Chainlink as a node operator. Starting today, our Chainlink node will assist in providing highly available and reliable data feeds to the crypto ecosystem.

Solving The Oracle Problem

The Chainlink team is providing a core piece of infrastructure for blockchain applications by allowing them to handle off-chain data. On their own, blockchains are unable to verify “real world” data that is created outside their native network. This creates a conundrum, as many blockchain use cases need to stay informed about external events to trigger the execution of smart contracts. …

Chorus One

Chorus One is offering staking services and building tools and protocols to advance the Proof of Stake ecosystem.
