May 11, 2024 by Sheldon

At the Solana Crossroads conference, Marinade, a leading staking platform on the Solana blockchain, announced the highly anticipated launch of Marinade V2 in Q2 2024. This major upgrade is expected to revolutionize Solana staking with a host of innovative features and promises to boost Solana's decentralization further. With over 10 million SOL staked, worth $1.47 billion, The platform's V2 launch is poised to attract even more users and further solidify its position as a premier staking solution.

Marinade V2: A Game-Changer for Solana Staking and Decentralization

Marinade V2 introduces a comprehensive suite of features designed to enhance the staking experience for Solana users and contribute to the network's decentralization. These features include ensuring users receive their full staking rewards, including MEV, block rewards, and priority fees, without any deductions or losses; guaranteeing uninterrupted staking operations, eliminating the risk of downtime or sudden commission increases; simplifying the staking process by removing the need for complex smart contract interactions; allowing users to instantly unstake their SOL, providing greater liquidity and flexibility; and offering comprehensive reporting on staking rewards and network performance, empowering users with valuable insights. By making staking easier, more accessible, and more rewarding, Marinade V2 is expected to encourage greater participation in the Solana network, thereby strengthening its decentralization.

Introducing SAM: Stake Auction Marketplace

In addition to the V2 launch, Marinade is also developing a Stake Auction Marketplace (SAM). SAM will enable Marinade to delegate its 10 million SOL stake to multiple validators through an open market auction. Validators can bid on how much they are willing to pay to receive a portion of Marinade's stake, with the highest bidders securing the delegation. This approach promotes decentralization by distributing stake across a wider range of validators.

This innovative approach is expected to increase staking yield for Marinade users by including MEV, transaction fees, and other validator revenues in the rewards. As Michael Repetny, a Marinade contributor, explained during his presentation at Solana Crossroads on May 11th.

He also emphasized, "Now it's your turn. I'm happy to invite you to stop staking to one validator and start staking to many."

A New Era for Solana Staking and Decentralization

Marinade's V2 launch and the introduction of SAM are poised to usher in a new era of Solana staking, marked by increased accessibility, enhanced rewards, and a stronger focus on decentralization. As Solana continues to grow in popularity, Marinade's commitment to providing a secure, reliable, and rewarding staking experience will undoubtedly play a crucial role in driving the platform's adoption and success.
