Tachyon Protocol (IPX)’s VPN service, Tachyon VPN, will be supporting IPX Staking natively in its IPX Wallet in the upcoming v2.6 release. With IPX Staking, all participants will be able to stake tokens directly inside the Tachyon VPN platform without the need to operate a node. These participants will be earning staking rewards (but no session rewards – if they are not node runners). To boost their staking returns, participants can lock a small amount of IPX. The v2.6 release is expected to go live this month.
IPX Wallet Staking makes IPX staking easier than ever since there is no limitation on the staking amount either. All information will be recorded on the contract and reports will be readily available. If stakers opt to lock some IPX to boost staking ROI, the effectiveness will depend on the amounts and durations of IPX staked and boosted at the individual and overall levels.
Out of the circulating supply of ~267M IPX, about 83% or 220M+ IPX is staked by Node Providers earning them 13M+ IPX as a result. This shows how popular staking is among the participants already. With nearly 23k functioning IPX wallets live in the system, direct staking from Tachyon VPN will attract even more holders and stakers.
Tachyon VPN’s v2.5 was released last week for both Android and iOS. The IPX payment design was completed as well. As IPX will be used as the main payment method in Tachyon VPN soon, this will be the crucial step to introduce IPX to Tachyon VPN’s nearly 2.2 Million global users. Development work for IPX Wallet Staking on Android got off to a start this week. So the release of v2.6 is as per schedule for December 2020.
