August witnessed an explosion of progress for Persistence and our community. Our liquid staking protocol pSTAKE continued to confidently find its footing in the industry and began making waves, consistently smashing through TVL milestones, while the TVL of XPRT pools on Osmosis and Emeris continued to rise sharply.

We surpassed a whopping 200,000 transactions on the Persistence network with over 13,500 XPRT wallets created. Our team set a Spartan pace as we built connections and relationships with some of the finest folks in the cryptosphere. …

We’re excited to announce the winners of the pSTAKE Staking Gala! The Staking Gala was held from July 2nd until July 9th to further refine our liquid staking application before launching on mainnet in July. There was a total rewards pool of $20,000 distributed to the top 100 participants.

We’re truly grateful to all the pSTAKE pioneers who participated in the Staking Gala and congratulations to all the winners! With your support, we were able to further refine our liquid staking solution to make pSTAKE a cut above the rest.

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.

Additionally, Persistence leadership took time to hit key media outlets, letting the cryptosphere know we mean business. We are…

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…

The month of May has been a blur, and the “noise” has seemed to have reached a crescendo. Though many are worried amid uncertain market conditions, we are not, instead we’re more driven than ever.

Action-packed April has just zipped by!

Continuing to build on the success of a monumental March, we pushed ahead and accelerated as we raced through April. Last month alone we witnessed our first two exchange listings, on AscendEX and, and launched XPRT staking with 35%+ APR straight out of the gates.

March was a momentous month for Persistence and our community!

In each month of 2021, we’ve accomplished more than the last, but this past month was truly exceptional! In March alone, we launched our mainnet, conducted XPRT’s long-anticipated TGE, completed token auctions on AscendEx (formerly BitMax), trading of XPRT began, and we launched XPRT staking with rewards of 35%+ APR.

Additionally, we hosted Proof-of-Stake: The New Paradigm, one of the year’s biggest PoS events, during which thought leaders from the PoS ecosystem joined us for an action-packed day of presentations, panel discussions and fireside chats on some of the industry’s…
