Once launched, Heiko will offer liquid staking on Kusama. On Heiko’s lending interface, users will be able to compound their KSM stake with greater effectiveness than they ever have in the past, with minimal risk. Leverage staking allows you to lend against your staked assets, to earn interest from staking and lending at the same time. In addition, when Heiko receives the user’s KSM, it stakes them to the network by algorithmically nominating the most reliable nodes on behalf of the user. For comparison, with a custodial staking solution like Kraken, users receive a flat annualized yield of 12%. In this instance, the user does not strictly have possession of their coins, because Kraken takes custody of them. Compare this with Heiko, which is noncustodial and tailored to the users needs, offering APYs as high as 20% when leverage staking is added.
