To provide secure and reliable service, StakeHound’s main priority was to establish a strong infrastructure around stakedTokens. Our partnership with Copper completes this mission with end-to-end secure custody architecture for all the stakedTokens.

StakeHound eliminates the competition between staking and DeFi by enabling users to profit from the stable staking rewards of the original tokens and participating in DeFi with their wrapped ERC-20 version. In other words StakeHound provides users with a ERC-20 wrapped version of the original tokens such as XZC or XEM which can be immediately used in DeFi applications. Original tokens are staked in the pool, and StakeHound distributes staking rewards directly to users as additional stakedTokens on the regular basis. And we are excited to join forces with Copper to ensure secure transmission of original tokens to and from StakeHound platform.

StakeHound & Copper Partnership

From the very first moment we at StakeHound realized that to offer best in class service we must build an efficient and secure infrastructure supporting stakedTokens. StakeHound’s solution for staking and DeFi stands on three pillars one of which is a secure and seamless transmission of funds with a trusted custodian. That’s why one of the first partnerships StakeHound formed was with Copper — Best Digital Asset Custodian 2019 and 2020 according to HFM Awards.

This Partnership allows all our users rest assured that when they transfer to StakeHound their original PoS tokens, those are processed by the expert and secure custody professionals at Copper.

Dmitry Tokarev, CEO of Copper, added:With a market cap exceeding $12 billion dollars, DeFi has become the fastest growing sector in the blockchain space — necessitating an independent, trusted, and secure custody solution. Partnering with StakeHound enables us to bring increased security and efficiency to this space, allowing investors to keep their minds focused on market performance, while we take care of the seamless transmission of tokens to and from the StakeHound platform.”
