HashKey Cloud Announces Entry into Restaking Arena

Updated: Apr 11

Hong Kong, April 7, 2024 - HashKey Cloud, a leading provider of blockchain infrastructure solutions, took center stage at the Hong Kong Web3 Festival on April 7, 2024, as it hosted an 'Open Stage' event themed around "Restaking" and made a significant announcement during the keynote address, declaring its formal entry into the Restaking arena apart from classic node validation services, sparking lively discussions among industry leaders presented.

In the keynote address segment, Kathy Qu, Research Manager at HashKey Cloud, centered around “New Opportunities in Node Validation”.

She emphasized HashKey Cloud's continuous deep engagement in providing Web3 infrastructure services represented by node validation featuring non-custodial service, on-chain validation, and slashing coverage, with over 80 public chains supported, and a rank of TOP3 and TOP10 (by AUM), respectively in Asia and Global Markets since 2018.

She introduced HashKey Cloud's brand new product line, including STO infrastructure services, and Layer2.

She also elucidated HashKey Cloud's decision to provide technical services to support users who wish to participate in Restaking. HashKey Cloud is one of the first node operators to support EigenLayer, dedicated to contributing to the new security mechanism and strategically and safely choose modules to operate from a technical perspective.

Dencun Upgrade went live on 13 March 2024, a feature of which is significantly reduced transaction fees (≈10×), and increased security of staking-related applications.

Restaking protocols have been highly popular over the past year. EigenLayer pioneered the restaking concept and has seen rapid growth, with a TVL of $11.34 billion and a growing ecosystem of projects using it like EigenDA, AltLayer, and Lagrange, and can resolve the fundamental shortcomings in the current organization of the AVS ecosystem, such as boot issues with new AVS; value leakage; burden of capital cost, and lower trust model of DApps.

Against such a background, HashKey Cloud has joined hands with the restaking giant EigenLayer and has made preliminary achievements:

HashKey Cloud has become an EigenLayer Node Operator, achieving an AUM of $100m+
