New blockchain feature: Stake Extensions

Compendia's DeFi features (staking and voting) are moving forward! We launched a new transaction type on our testnet, and deployed our new testnet block explorer.

Stake Extensions

You'll soon be able to renew your stake at the same - or a higher - duration.

If you extend a stake, its duration is renewed from the moment of the extend transaction at a new duration. The stake will release after the new duration has passed (3 months, 6 months, or 1 year).

If you choose to extend your stake to a longer duration (e.g. from 3 months to 1 year), you also get the increased vote power, as if it's a new stake.

For example: if you extend your 3-month stake to a full year, the voting power granted by the stake is doubled, from 500% to 1,000%.

Stake Extensions

Extending a stake has a ß1.00 transaction fee.

You can try extending a stake now at the testnet wallet.

We expect to launch Stake Extensions on Compendia's mainnet next week (before 20 December 2020).

We also deployed our new testnet block explorer:

The explorer is identical to our mainnet explorer, and includes testnet features before they're deployed to mainnet (for example, the new Stake Extend transactions).
