The new HYDRA contracts have officially been launched

The new HYDRA contracts have officially been launched—you can begin swapping XSN into HDX (Hydra) at the swap portal here: The portal will be open until 30/06/2022 (3 months), after which you will no longer be able to convert existing XSN into Hydra.

You can view the contracts and find info on the new project and vision at our gitbook here:

Going into this new phase, I will be officially moving into an advisory role; however, I will still be active and offering support in any way I can. This was a planned move to ensure the project has sufficient censorship resistance and remains immutable as DeFi navigates the rapidly changing and complex geopolitical world.

The main Hydra dev-ops will be headed by @ZK with @AlexITC - WILL NOT MESSAGE FIRST and @rimatik @iBlackShadow heading the technical smart contract development teams working on Hydra bridge, Hydra vaults, and maintaining the HDX protocol itself.

@s54 @JoPark @beljora @winnie @ZK will be key leaders as multi-signers for the treasury managing the staking assets that back the Hydra token.

@StakeKnight of "Ni" Victo and @s54 will be the development leads on the Lazarus project—a community-led, open-source continuation of the MCLW into a privacy-centered DeFi software.

For further information on the swap, and FAQ see ⭐・swap-faq

If any issues please post in the swap-support channel, and we will get you assistance

Thank everyone for your patience

Reminder @everyone - the Stakenet Cloud service will be shutting down February 28, 2022.

Reminder @everyone - the Stakenet Cloud service will be shutting down February 28, 2022 in preparation for the chainswap. In order to ensure your funds are secured, you will need to withdraw all coins from the Stakenet cloud and self-custody them using the Core wallet or Multi-Currency Lite Wallet (MCLW/DEX).

If you have more than 200 XSN in your cloud account, and want to remove all funds before Feb 28, you will want to make sure you have configured 2-factor authentication; this will raise your withdrawal limit to allow you to withdraw more XSN at once.

To reiterate:
- All masternodes will be shut down on February 28, 2022, as will your ability to log into stakenet cloud
- All funds are secure; this is a planned transition, and more information about the chainswap procedure will be made available in the coming days

- Should you miss the February 28 withdrawal cutoff, you will need to contact to take custody of your XSN.

Thank you all - and please expect more information on the chainswap & following protocol enhancements in the coming weeks.

This will be our last voting round before we launch the swap portal into our new protocol Hydranet and begin the migration. As we work out specific details, dates, and roadmap, you can begin reading an overview of the mission and purpose of the HYDRA protocol here

The new platform will be aimed to be a decentralized DeFi hedge and venture fund, using latest DeFi mechanisms such as bonding, rebasing + a backing treasury utilizing an index of assets, primarily we are looking at utilizing GLP as backing, and working to develop partnerships to best support the transition

We are structuring this platform to best adopt and integrate with the latest technology in web3, make for easy collaborations, and also support existing vision & dev. We will hold official AMA’s and further details to come

MCLW Progress

the Lazarus team has made great progress on the cross chain swaps, we are in contact now to get supporting docs and modules to help get the build to where it needs to be.

Will have an update from their team on details soon

Latest Stakenet ⚡ Dex Update: 4.4.4
Changelog for Version 4.4.4 Released on: 2022-02-08 Wallet * Enabled LTC/BTC pair.

Thu, 02/03/2022
A quick update on the technical progress with the MCLW:

The taskforce has done some amazing work recently in regards to the MCLW, from simple typo fixes to complete refactoring in the code. As of last night one of them had a breakthrough with the MCLW while researching Connext interactions between the MCLW & Hub. It appears that BTC/ETH and BTC/LTC now have no technological bottlenecks to prevent them from working. HOWEVER, in an abundance of caution, we would like to continue code review and refactor of the connext interactions on the CLIENT, to ensure functionality is as intended and research ways of making channel creation more affordable. BTC/LTC does not use Connext, and as such can be released with supporting liquidity (and similar trade size restrictions to the BTC/XSN pair).

The real question: "WHEN CAN WE USE WHAT WAS PROMISED????"

As you can see below, significant progress has been made, and subsequent releases will hopefully demonstrate this progress. The forthcoming update will be the biggest patch for the MCLW to date, and as such, we have branded this "relaunch" of the MCLW the Lazarus patch. it will be a technologically more complete MCLW which brings the product a lot closer functionally to what was promised.

"This is great and all but when is it coming"

You already know the answer... When its ready.

We all witnessed the launch issues the original build on the 10th had and do not wish to repeat the same mistakes that the launch had.

Again, we'd like to thank all those who have donated time, energy, and/or funds to supporting this community development work! Thanks to you all for your continued support and engagement!

As a quick reminder:

- High priority issues are defined as functionality impacting
- Medium priority issues are generally UI enhancements/visual bugs that don't impact function
- Low priority issues are almost exclusively feature requests that have not been executed yet

Hydra-bridge mainnet app deployed and V1 beta is ready for testing!

@everyone we have the hydra-bridge mainnet app deployed and V1 beta is ready for testing! It’s connected now and can try bridging on mainnet

please keep in mind this is in very early testing stages, we recommended using minimum amount of $ value


Eth, Usdc from mainnet to:

a) polygon via polygon and hop bridge

b) arbitrum via hop bridge

c) optimism via hop bridge

App url:
Contract url:

If you don’t have arbitrum, optimism, polygon networks in metamask go to Connect your wallet and search networks you don’t have, then press add to metamask:

1. For optimisim search for words: optimistic ethereum

- choose one with chain id 10

2. For arbitrum search for words arbitrum one

3. For polygon search for words: polygon mainnet

We have tested all transfer combinations and everything worked well, arbitrum is the fastest option via hop, others can take from 5 to 30 minutes.

Only thing we realized is the amount out for hop is not as expected on UI, seems like their SDK is not working well, have to investigate how we can get correct amount.

currently we can only go L1–>L2 have L2-L1 on the roadmap. For now after you transfer funds you can get them back either by, or through other bridges like

Also one solution can also be to send to centralised exchange and than back to eth.

If you have questions feel free to ask.

Team is working on a detailed roadmap for now some next steps…

1. Add more options on backend (looking at synapse now)

2. Add “bridge progress” in the UX to track bridging in real time

3. Add in L2–>L1 support

4. Update UX designs

5. Investigate methods to generate fees/ revenue

A new DEX-feedback page

A big thanks to community member @Sadhill!

He has put up a great webpage, where the community can easily report and track issues & requests regarding the DEX in real-time.

To access the website, please visit:

Here is a recap of the content you can find of the new website:

Home page:

Summary of the website, information about where to find your logs, and a non-exhaustive list of the active tickets.

Report a bug page:

Some guidelines/extra info when you report a bug, the different categories, known exploitation to help you take the right one, and finally the form.

Required fields are marked by an asterisk. You can upload files with your report too. A maximum of 4 files are allowed, each of them has a size restriction of 2MB max.

Dashboard page:

See all tickets alongside the one under DEX manager validation. You will be able to filter the issue list by type (bug/feature), statuses, and categories. You can also see the whole by clicking on ALL.

Feature request page:

The different categories known are broken down to help you make the right one when submitting your feature request and the specific form to submit a request.

Required fields are marked by an asterisk. You can uploads files like images or drawings if you think that will help. A maximum of 4 files are allowed and each of them has a size restriction of 2MB max.


1. When you report a bug or submit a feature request, your ticket will be marked as TO VALIDATE, meaning it will not appear anywhere except on the dashboard page under the filter TO VALIDATE. After the DEX manager approves it and marks it as OPEN, it will be visible everywhere.

2. When clicking on Details on a ticket card, you will be redirected to the ticket page. There, you will have a detailed view of the information provided. However, only the trusted community-task-force member will have access to the Attachments section to be able to view/download log files/screenshots.

New Partnership with Wolves of Alt Street

to coincide with the announcement of our bridge aggregator (coming soontm!), we'd like to announce our engagement with the discord group, Wolves of Alt Street!

Wolves of alt street is a newb-friendly crypto community that works to inform, excite and engage new and old investors alike to bring about a more inviting ecosystem to service the confusion of the increasingly complex Blockchain world. WoAS is a booming group of ~13k crypto investors who are all excited to help each other, participate in community events and showcase their favorite services, chains and coins/tokens in a relaxed and inviting environment..

We are very excited to have them as a promotions sponsor, and are happy to share our progress/development with a knowledgeable community who can offer feedback and help share our message with the broader crypto world!

Also, thanks especially to our community (you know who you are!) for bringing this opportunity to us, and helping us negotiate & fund this community-sourced engagement! We are very grateful for all community contributions - whatever form they come in.

V1 PoC of our first WEB3 product "HYDRA BRIDGE" has been deployed!

Below is a brief summary, live demo links + instructions on how to test. The developer @rimatik007 and Project Manager @ZK will be available to answer any questions/comments in our discord via an AMA hydra-bridge-ama . We will also have dedicated testing channels for this software as well

This product is a bridge aggregator having one front end UI, the user selects what assets they want to bridge, our software will calculate the fastest + cheapest option and our custom smart contract trustlesslyroutes the user safely to the optimal path (think 1inch of bridges)

This initial demo is running on testnet (instructions below), and is using 2 bridge options to select from atm (Polygon POS, and HOP)

We are working to launch live contracts for real world testing in 1-2 weeks and adding a 3rd option on the backend in approx 1-2 months (considering either synapse or anyswap)

Any community contributors interested can earn 100 XSN per bugfix if said fix is merged with the master branch and delivered securely. You can see the "BUGPOT" address here: 7d7JGTecz3AhZszPjZFuGvN8gF2AFddM6Z

As the pot grows, we may revisit current bug bounties - stay tuned for future announcements!

If you have the skills and interest in helping support the DEX, we invite you to come and join the Community task force where bugs and requests are pulled from the community's reports.

To complement this sponsored activity, we are announcing bi-weekly (every other week) bug tracking reports! This activity confirms another of the transparency goals that we are working towards to open up the dev processes to the community as a whole.

Bugs/fixes will be broken down into the following categories:
- HIGH Priority: Wallet send/channel creation/rental/closure/swap issues (These include L1 send issues and anything to do with in-wallet LND and Connext issues, including swap issues in core DEX swaps)
- MEDIUM Priority: Non-impacting/Secondary Priority issues (These include UI bugs, SSUI/AMM BOT issues, and other bugs that are not integral to the core DEX wallet or swap functions)

- LOW Priority: Feature Requests (Each of these is tied to UI requests and/or feature recommendations)

Once again, if you have the skills and interest in helping the team, please feel free to reach out to our community organizers, StakeKnight of "Ni" Victo or Gainz at Discord:

Thank you all! We very much appreciate the community support!

We are excited to announce one of the transparency targets for development of the Stakenet DEX: the multi-currency lite wallet source code has been made open source!

This was done in the spirit of allowing for more verifiable evidence of progress being made on the Stakenet DEX, as well as empowering community contributions to the project.

We feel this is a positive first step in progressing the MCLW client into a known stable configuration, as well as show progress against identified high-priority issues that impact core functionality of the DEX.

You can find the Github to the light wallet here:

In addition, we have already had several community members offer to assist in contributing to bug-fixes and other minor updates; if you have developer experience and would like to assist as well, we welcome your input! Please reach out to @StakeKnight of "Ni" Victo or @gainz to discuss how to get involved.

Thank you all for your continued support of the project, and we hope to have more updates on development progress for you soon!

We have organized and consolidated some major targets ahead. Specifically working on a roadmap for what we see is important tech ahead (see #2: rollups (arbitrum) + DeFi 2.0 tech i.e "protocol owned liquidity"
Target 1. Native BTC staking pools — Using our cross-chain DEX technology and wallet to deploy first-ever native BTC staking (by providing BTC-WBTC, BTC-STABLE, BTC-ETH liquidity via locking in LN + connext channels )
Target 2. SV3 (stakenet V3) - Upgrading/ Migrating Stakenet to EVM contracts, arbitrum partners + EVM dapps. Progress is going well, will have more specific news and updates on this as we develop further
For those who hold XSN Masternodes make sure to cast your votes via our blockchain DAO & governance platform via your MN controller wallet cli.

Team Update & Arbitrum

Team Update:

We have talked with Connext recently and they confirmed they will be adding Arbitrum support. This means fees should soon be ~10x less for our DEX (opening, closing channels) and make the UX a lot smoother on our side.

We’re going to focus on getting a working model with opening & closing connext channels via L1 now but channel creation/ close fees should go down dramatically when connext is on arbitral.

We support Arbitrum as it inherits the full security of ETH L1, with approx ~10X fewer fees using rollups

Here’s a great post from @s54 on more detail why we chose rollups. Let us know any questions!

“Rollups are great for the EVM ecosystem overall, as I feel the benefits of sharding/side chains are not worth the security tradeoffs, especially with current bridging solution complications.

Rollups allow for more direct leveraging of L1 security benefits while also offering many of the same cost benefits of side chains - and the best part is that with increased adoption comes increased efficiency.

So as Arbitrum scales the cost savings only get more attractive.

I'll also say that arbitral is a much preferable solution to optimism as it should incur fewer settlement disputes”

This proposal is towards achieving roadmap targets

To encourage community DAO proposals our team has drafted a 6 point framework to follow which we believe will allow a speedy and efficient review. This will be at first off chain to test, if results are good we will consider a similar framework on chain

This month we encourage any/all interested to post their proposals in our #dao-proposals channel (at Discord We will consider funding up to 30k XSN on proposals that qualify

Proposal Framework. Character limit [1-2 sentences for each]

1. “Complete X Task/ event (what)
2. Purpose: How will this benefit the Stakenet ecosystem?
3. “Need Y Budget (ask)
4. “Participants involved/ payment address” (who)
5. “Timeline (delivery target)”
6. Where will this be delivered? I.e GitHub, socials, forums etc?

XSN governance + treasury is designed to last forever into the life of the project. Long after developers/leadership change, masternode owners (MN’s) & those who have the most “stake” can continue to fund & support development. ⚡️
