Chainlink Boosts Staking Mechanism with 45 Million LINK Pool


Chainlink has introduced Chainlink Staking v0.2, unveiling an expanded pool of 45 million LINK tokens. The upgrade aims to enhance the staking experience and security of the decentralized computing protocol. A nine-day "priority migration" period has commenced for existing v0.1 stakers, followed by early access and general access phases starting on Dec. 7 and Dec. 11, respectively.

Staking Pool Expansion: 

Increasing the staking pool size to 45 million LINK (8% of the current circulating supply) is part of Chainlink's Economics 2.0 plan. This move is intended to attract a more diverse range of LINK token holders, contributing to the protocol's overall security. Chainlink is a leading oracle network in the crypto space, providing real-world data to blockchain applications.

Evolution of Staking: 

Chainlink initially launched staking in December, focusing on securing the Ethereum ETH/USD price feed with a capped pool of 25 million LINK tokens. The latest version, Staking v0.2, introduces a more flexible unbonding mechanism, enabling stakers to withdraw their tokens efficiently. It emphasizes improved security guarantees and incorporates a modular design for better adaptability to future upgrades.

Security and Growth: 

According to Sergey Nazarov, Chainlink co-founder, the consistent increase in the value secured by the Chainlink Network necessitates improvements in cryptoeconomic security. Staking v0.2 introduces crucial security features and positions the system for further growth in the coming year. The upgrade also incorporates dynamic rewards mechanisms to seamlessly support new sources of rewards in the future.
