StakeKit, emerging from stealth after 18 months of development, has launched its powerful self-custodial yield API, powering Zerion’s newly unveiled Earn page. This integration marks a significant milestone in providing users a unified platform to manage and grow their digital asset portfolio across more than 13 blockchain networks natively within Zerion. 

StakeKit aggregates over 500 yield opportunities into a single, easy-to-use interface. This includes staking, restaking, liquid staking, yield vaults, and lending pools.

“Our goal was to make earning yield in self-custodial wallets as easy as earning yield on a CEX. We’ve spent more than 1.5 years building StakeKit and worked closely together with protocol teams and DeFi developers to make this a reality. We’re excited to power the new Earn section in Zerion and allow users to get yield with ultimate ease of use and without having to give up even an ounce of self-custody” says Serafin Lion Engel, CEO of StakeKit.

The Earn section on Zerion now offers users the ability to stake, liquid stake, restake, and earn DeFi yields with the simplicity typically available on centralized exchanges (CEXs), but with the crucial benefit of users retaining 100% self-custody over their funds. This integration not only simplifies access to diverse DeFi yields but also enhances user safety.

“Each yield contract featured on our platform is manually authenticated and integrated which mitigates risks users would normally face if they sought yield in third party dapps, such as phishing risks. This allows users to stack yields safely and effectively,” added Engel.

While users can delegate to any validator of their choice, StakeKit enables users to delegate to members of their Preferred Validator Network which provides users additional benefits such as slashing protection and uptime guarantees, which safeguard their staked assets and ensure optimal yield generation.

“We’re thrilled to partner with StakeKit to offer users the opportunity to earn passive income with their assets across multiple networks, seamlessly. At Zerion, our users enjoy the multichain experience, from portfolio tracking to bridging and swapping natively within our self-custodial wallet. StakeKit further enhances this experience by abstracting the specifics of each chain and protocol,” shared Yassine, senior product manager at Zerion.

The new Earn section in Zerion is available as of the release of this article. For more information about StakeKit and the new Earn page on Zerion, visit their website.

    Despite crypto gaming related projects and funds raising close to a billion dollars in November 2021, there have been only a handful of games that have attracted users apart from mercenary capital, and have had sustained activity for longer than a few months. Crypto gaming is going through an infrastructure phase. Theoretically, crypto gaming stands to benefit from purpose-built, high throughput chains, where blockspace is cheap (especially for games which are fully onchain). However, despite the launch of many gaming-focused chains, most crypto games are lacking in quality and quantity. Most new crypto gaming infrastructure either have no games or only a few games launched (e.g. Xai) or have failed to garner meaningful attention (e.g. Immutable X).
