What is Stakenet?

Stakenet is a proof of stake blockchain with Masternodes, built to facilitate trustless and decentralized integration of the Lightning and Connext networks, allowing development of dApps like a Layer 3 DEX.

  • It provides a trustless cross-chain platform built on top of its own cryptocurrency - XSN. Individuals can easily operate with any blockchain by using XSN and its dApps.
  • Powerful nodes run the dApps and network services. It is the first blockchain secured by a Trustless Proof of Stake (TPoS) consensus, resulting in one of the highest level of security among existing PoS networks.
  • Learn more about its utility in our FAQ and XSN page.

    The Stakenet blockchain is powered by two types of nodes: Stakenodes and Masternodes

    The Stakenodes

    Responsible for moving, validating, and securing the Stakenet network.

    Anybody can be a staker by running a Stakenode, regardless of how many coins they own.

    Merchantnodes are a kind of Stakenodes designed especially for cold staking (TPoS).

    The Stakenet blockchain uses its revolutionary TPoS consensus, so more independent Stakers secure the network and more Masternodes can be online than with previous solutions.

    The Masternodes

    Responsible for providing high-end network services and running dApps utilizing XSN, such as Stakenet DEX.

    They create a massive network of computers with an incredible computational power for Stakenet. The possibilities are endless.

    To run a Masternode you need 15 000 XSN.

    Network security and services are as important to have a robust and powerful infrastructure. Stakers and Masternodes are equally rewarded, each with 45% of the block rewards. No one is discriminated.


    The treasury is a cryptographically sealed public address that holds money allocated to it by the network

  • 10% of the block rewards go to the treasury.
  • Used to fund any Stakenet related development, project, marketing campaign, et cetera…
  • No centralized entity owns or has access to the money in the treasury.
  • Funds proposals must be submitted and voted democratically by the Masternodes.
  • It is effectively owned by no one and everyone at the same time.
  • Governance

    The Stakenet's governance is a truly decentralized democracy

  • Stakenet is a Decentralized Autonomous Organization that is run through unbreakable rules, encoded and maintained on our blockchain.
  • It doesn't have a centralized leader. Instead, there is a management mechanism that takes credit for the needs of all individuals involved.
  • Stakenet holders govern the protocol and vote to implement the best possible innovations.
  • Masternode owners have voting rights — one Masternode equals one vote.
  • dApps and services

    Different teams are innovating and building on top of Stakenet

  • The proceeds dApps and services bring are distributed among XSN Masternodes, sent to the Treasury for further developments, or burned (thus decreasing the supply of the coin). Either way, it is ensured the dApps and services built upon Stakenet will end up benefiting XSN.
  • The Stakenet dApp framework will enable anyone to develop powerful decentralized applications on top of Stakenet, powered by XSN Masternodes.
