dYdX Staking is now Accessible through Anchorage Digital

Anchorage Digital, a leading institutional crypto platform, has announced support for staking the native DYDX token. This allows institutions to securely hold DYDX in Anchorage’s custody and earn rewards distributed by the dYdX protocol in USDC.

As the first federally chartered digital asset bank in the US, Anchorage Digital offers a range of services for traditional and decentralized finance institutions, including custody, staking, and trading. They’ve been a partner for dYdX since the protocol’s launch, supporting both the wrapped version (ethDYDX) and the native DYDX token. This new staking feature marks a significant step towards bringing more institutions into the dYdX ecosystem with a secure and regulated solution.

Anchorage Digital carefully selects the assets they support based on strict quality and safety standards, ensuring they meet the demands of institutional investors. With their staking service, institutions can easily earn rewards on their DYDX holdings. Both the DYDX tokens themselves and the earned USDC rewards are held securely within Anchorage Digital’s custody solution.

This partnership between Anchorage Digital and dYdX benefits both sides. Anchorage’s secure and regulated environment attracts institutions to participate in staking DYDX. At the same time, it offers a compliant solution for DYDX token holders and fosters wider institutional adoption, which helps the dYdX ecosystem grow.
