Bigger, better, stronger: RAMP DeFi joins collaboration between StakeHound and NEM Group for stXEM Liquidity

About two months ago, we announced the launch of stXEM. If you missed it, stXEM allows anyone to have access to the rewards of running a NEM supernode – which otherwise requires one to minimally hold 3,000,000 or more XEM and for the supernode to be up and running 24 hours per day, processing all transactions.We launched with 2 running supernodes which generate on average 4.5% annual reward for all stXEM holders regardless of the amount they actually own.

Today, we are excited to share that RAMP DeFi is part of this collaboration with us at StakeHound and NEM Group.

stXEM Integration With rUSD As A Collateral Asset

RAMP DeFi is a global decentralized finance protocol that increases users’ returns on assets by collateralizing yield-bearing staked digital assets into a liquid stablecoin.

The RAMP liquidity unlocking solution is extremely flexible in its use case. Assets can both be wrapped and delegated into staking via smart contracts created by the RAMP team, or through partners such as NEM/StakeHound.

Yield bearing assets with excellent liquidity can be easily integrated into rUSD as collateral, ensuring that rUSD holders also continue to earn an underlying yield stream on their assets while minting rUSD. rUSD can then be deployed into existing DeFi protocols / products to earn additional yield, or be exchanged into USDT / USDC for other purposes.

In this case, stXEM users get to earn XEM staking rewards, and can acquire new yield streams via Ethereum-based DeFi participation, or exchange into liquid capital to pursue new investment opportunities without giving up ownership of their XEM assets.

At the same time, fees can be generated for the RAMP ecosystem via increased users participation and the integration of new collateral assets.

We are excited to embark on this three way partnership with NEM Group and RAMP DeFi to jointly deliver this unique DeFi solution for the global XEM community!
