TORONTO, November 30, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tokens.com Corp. (NEO Exchange Canada: COIN) (Frankfurt Stock Exchange: 76M) (OTCQB US: SMURF) ("Tokens.com" or the "Company"), a publicly traded company that invests in revenue-generating crypto assets linked to Decentralized Finance ("DeFi"), Non-Fungible Tokens ("NFTs") and metaverse real estate is pleased to announce it has acquired 10,000 Solana (SOL), 22,500 Terra (LUNA), and 3,022,453 Ankr (ANKR) tokens for the purpose of crypto staking.
Crypto staking is the environmentally friendly alternative to crypto mining. Both platforms perform the same service and end result, however, staking accomplishes this using 99.9% less electricity and with no hardware. Staking, as an operating platform, can also power significantly more transactions per second than crypto mining, making it the dominant technology used for high-volume processing required in the DeFi and NFT sectors.
"We purchased additional tokens during this recent dip to build our inventory of tokens used for crypto staking. The staking process rewards us with additional tokens allowing us to organically grow the number of tokens we own by the minute. We immediately restake the tokens we earn to compound our growth," commented CEO, Andrew Kiguel.
In addition to Solana, Terra and Ankr, Tokens.com’s other tokens used for crypto staking include Ethereum, Polkadot, Oasis Rose and Shiba Inu. Tokens.com is also the majority owner of Metaverse Group, one of the world's first owners and developers of NFT based digital real estate in several metaverses.
Solana is a decentralized blockchain built on a proof-of-stake operating system that enables scalable, user friendly apps for the world. Like Ethereum, Solana can also run smart contracts used for programing and designing other platforms. Solana is used as the building block for over 400 projects spanning DeFi, NFTs, Web3, and more. Solana’s Native Token is SOL.
Terra is a decentralized blockchain built on a proof-of-stake operating system. Terra, in 2019, uses fiat-pegged stablecoins to power stable-price global payments systems. Fiat-pegged cryptocurrencies are coins, tokens, or assets issued on a blockchain that is linked to a government or bank-issued currency. Terra's native token, LUNA, is used to stabilise the price of the stablecoins.
An Ethereum token that powers Ankr, a Web3 infrastructure and cross-chain staking DeFi platform that aims to make it easy and affordable for anyone to participate in blockchain ecosystems by building dapps, hosting nodes or staking. The ANKR token can be used to pay for services on the Ankr platform, such as node deployment and API services, participate in on-chain governance and also acts as an insurance for network participants.
