The pSTAKE Incentive Program gives pSTAKE users holistic, forward-looking insights into PSTAKE incentives on various DeFi integrations across Cosmos and BNB ecosystems. The majority of incentives currently are allocated for liquidity provisioning of stkTokens. LSTs (Liquid Staking Tokens) are powerless without deep liquidity against their base tokens. This is essential to meet the actual premise of liquid staking, liquefying a staked position.
PSTAKE Incentive Program January 2024
The Incentive Program aims to ensure sufficient liquidity for stkATOM, stkOSMO, and stkBNB in their respective ecosystems and nudge their use in DeFi applications like Borrowing/Lending, Stablecoin Collateralization, etc. As compared to the previous month, the January Incentive Program sees a ~11% reduction in PSTAKE token spend, keeping in mind sustainable growth over the new year 2024.
Below is a summary table of incentives allocated to various protocols across Cosmos and BNB ecosystems for January 2024.
|Dexter – stkATOM/ATOM Pool
|Astroport — stkATOM/ATOM Pool
|ShadeSwap – stkATOM/SILK Pool
|ShadeSwap – stkATOM/ATOM Pool
|Osmosis – stkOSMO/OSMO Pool
|Thena – stkBNB/BNB Pool
stkATOM has over $8.5 million in liquidity on various DEXs within the Cosmos ecosystem, such as Dexter, Osmosis, Crescent, and ShadeSwap. stkOSMO was launched in early December and has over $58k in liquidity on the Osmosis Concentrated liquidity pool. Around 45% of that liquidity exists on Dexter, the perfect fit for stkATOM liquidity due to its highly efficient Metastable pool offering. By being on the Persistence chain, Dexter gives pStakers the best LSTfi experience in the Cosmos ecosystem. Liquid staking on pSTAKE and providing liquidity on Dexter takes only two transactions, saving time and effort. stkATOM liquidity is also incentivized on the other DEXs that offer a unique proposition for stkATOM utility.
The incentives for stkATOM liquidity aim to sustainably deepen the token liquidity to make stkATOM more integrated into the Cosmos DeFi Ecosystem.
stkBNB has ~$780,000 in liquidity on DEXs such as Thena and PancakeSwap. Diverse stkBNB liquidity helps cater to all user types, efficient trading activity, and peg maintenance.
The incentives for stkBNB liquidity aim to maintain the current liquidity as stkBNB becomes more integrated into the BNB Chain DeFi Ecosystem.
Liquidity staking unlocks the liquidity of staked tokens & use cases in DeFi. stkTokens are nothing without liquidity against their underlying base token. The pSTAKE team will indefinitely provide guidance into where this liquidity and DeFi utility will exist, along with the PSTAKE incentives for achieving it. The pSTAKE Incentive Program blog posts will be published in the last week of each month, providing insights into the $PSTAKE incentive plan for the upcoming month.
pSTAKE is a multi-chain liquid staking protocol that unlocks liquidity for your staked assets. With pSTAKE, you can securely stake your Proof-of-Stake (PoS) assets to earn staking rewards, and receive staked underlying representative tokens (stkASSETs) which can be used to explore additional yield opportunities across DeFi.
At present, pSTAKE supports Binance Chain (BNB), Cosmos (ATOM), and Osmosis (OSMO) networks’ native tokens, with a view to enable support for more chains and assets such as Persistence (XPRT), Celestia (TIA), and DYDX (DYDX) in the future.
