We’re excited to continually support Stader as a leading Terra ecosystem project and lynchpin of the next evolution of staking infrastructure.

Stader Labs has raised $12.5 million in a strategic private sale that values the company up to $450 million. Stader is a non-custodial, smart contract-based staking platform that helps retail and institutions conveniently discover and access staking solutions.

The sale was led by Three Arrows Capital with additional participation from Blockchain.com, Accomplice, DACM, GoldenTree Asset Management, Accel, Amber, 4RC, Figment and select angels, including Prabhakar Reddy, Cofounder of FalconX and Matt Cantieri, GM at Anchor Protocol.

Stader previously raised $4 million from Pantera, Coinbase Ventures, Jump Capital, True Ventures, Hypersphere, Proof, Ledger Prime, Huobi Ventures, Solidity Ventures and Double Peak.

On the importance of the raise, Stader Labs CEO Amitej Gajjala:

“This capital will be strategically deployed to accelerate our cross-chain expansion, as well as to nurture our growing ecosystem of third-parties developing staking applications with decentralised Stader infrastructure.”

Thanks to its staking infrastructure that makes it easy for delegators to stake with a basket of validators, Stader has a core role in helping PoS networks decentralize.

Its two core products are Stake Pools, where users can safely and easily stake in pre-defined baskets of validators grouped by performance, and Liquid Staking, where users receive a liquid token (LunaX) when staking to participate in yield-boosting DeFi strategies.

“Since launching in November 2021, there are over 15,000 unique wallets staking over 5.9 million LUNA with a total value locked of around $500 million. These numbers underscore both Stader’s early traction and the broader market opportunity in staking infrastructure,” says Kyle Davies of Three Arrows Capital.

In addition to Terra, Stader’s native modular smart contracts will soon support multiple chains, including Solana, Ethereum, Fantom, Hedera, and Polygon. The objective is to build an economic ecosystem to grow and develop custom solutions such as yield redirection with rewards, liquid staking, launchpads, gaming, and more.

“These tools will bring Stader closer to its vision to be the most convenient and safe non-custodial staking platform — and a core ally in the future of finance thanks to its embedded decentralization for L1s,” says Do Kwon of Terra. “We’re excited to continually support Stader as a leading Terra ecosystem project and lynchpin of the next evolution of staking infrastructure.”
