Stader is a distributed set of specially-developed infrastructure-level smart contracts (each, a "Smart Contract") deployed on the Terra, Solana, Fantom, Polygon, Hedera, Near, BNB and Ethereum blockchain network or such other compatible blockchain network, as the case may be (each, the "**relevant Blockchain Network**") which comprises a set of modular tools allowing users (delegators) to participate in and manage their digital assets staked with various third-party staking protocols across different chains, accessible via a user-friendly platform ("**Stader**"). All interactions between stakers and protocols operate in a peer-to-peer manner.

The staking arrangements may be visualised on a user interface that the user can interact with, including but not limited to the website at https://www.staderlabs.com/ and each of their subdomains, or our mobile or web applications (the "**Site**"). The Smart Contracts and the Site are collectively referred to in these Terms as (the "**App**"). Using the App, users can interact with the underlying Smart Contracts to manage their staking with third party protocols. The Smart Contracts are designed to be modular and open, and interoperable across different blockchains, so users may also leverage these components to build their own staking solutions and decentralized applications.

Stazon Technologies Ltd. (the "**Company**", "**we**", "**our**" or "**us**") is making the App available to you. Before you use the App, the Smart Contracts, or the Site, however, you will need to agree to these Terms of Use and any terms and conditions incorporated herein by reference (collectively, these "**Terms**"). **PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THE APP, THE SMART CONTRACTS, OR THE SITE. THESE TERMS GOVERN YOUR USE OF THE APP, THE SMART CONTRACTS, AND THE SITE, UNLESS WE HAVE EXECUTED A SEPARATE WRITTEN AGREEMENT WITH YOU FOR THAT PURPOSE. WE ARE ONLY WILLING TO MAKE THE APP, THE SMART CONTRACTS, AND THE SITE AVAILABLE TO YOU IF YOU ACCEPT ALL OF THESE TERMS.

Without limiting the foregoing, by using the App, you acknowledge and understand that laws regarding digital assets, financial instruments, or investment products which may include digital assets, may vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and it is your sole obligation to ensure that you fully comply with any law, regulation or directive, relevant to your jurisdiction with regard to the use of the App. For the avoidance of doubt, the ability to access the App does not necessarily mean that the App, or your activities through it, are legal under the laws, regulations or directives relevant to your jurisdiction. All of the App or the services made available through the App may not be available to all users, and we reserve the right to assess or reassess at any time your eligibility to use all or part of the App. The App does not constitute, and may not be used for the purposes of, an offer or solicitation to anyone in any jurisdiction in which such offer or solicitation is not authorised, or to any person to whom it is unlawful to make such an offer or solicitation.

Supplemental terms and conditions or documents that may be posted on the App from time to time are hereby expressly incorporated herein by reference. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to make changes to the Terms from time to time. We will alert you of any changes by updating the “Last Updated" date of these Terms (on the last page hereof), and you waive any right to receive specific notice of each such change. It is your responsibility to periodically review these Terms to stay informed of updates.

The app

  1. To access the App, you must be at least eighteen (18) years old or of legal age to enter into an agreement as determined by the laws of the country/ territory where you live.
  2. To most easily access the App, you may first install a web browser (such as the Google Chrome web browser) and an electronic wallet (the **User’s Wallet App**) compatible with the relevant Blockchain Network, such as the User’s Wallet App. The User’s Wallet App allows you to purchase, store, and engage in transactions using the relevant Blockchain Network or other digital assets. You will not be able to engage in any transactions on the App other than through the User’s Wallet App, or other browsers compatible with the relevant Blockchain Network.
  3. All transactions (including staking transactions) that take place on the App are managed and confirmed via the relevant Blockchain Network. You understand that your public address on the relevant Blockchain Network will be made publicly visible whenever you engage in a transaction on the App.
  4. Stader is a non-custodial protocol, therefore the App does not hold or control your digital assets. Any digital assets which you may stake with Smart Contracts, or which you acquire through the usage of the App will be held and administered solely by you through your selected electronic wallet, and we shall have no access to or responsibility in regard to such electronic wallet or digital asset held therein. It is solely your responsibility to select the wallet service provider to use in connection with the App, and your use of such electronic wallet will be subject to the governing terms of use or privacy policy of the provider of such wallet. We neither own nor control the User’s Wallet App, Google Chrome, any electronic wallet, the relevant Blockchain Network, or any other third party site, product, or service that you might access, visit, or use for the purpose of enabling you to use the various features of the App. We will not be liable for the acts or omissions of any such third parties, nor will we be liable for any damage that you may suffer as a result of your transactions or any other interaction with any such third parties
  5. The Company will not create any hosted wallet for you or otherwise custody digital assets on your behalf, and it is your sole responsibility to maintain the security of your selected electronic wallet. In the event that you lose access to your electronic wallet, private key(s), password(s), or other method(s) of securing your Wallet, all digital assets held in such a wallet may be irretrievable, and the Company will be unable to assist you in any way. You hereby irrevocably waive, release and discharge all claims, whether known or unknown to you, against the Company, its affiliates and their respective shareholders, members, directors, officers, employees, agents and representatives related to your use of any wallet software, associated loss of digital assets, transaction failures, or any other defects that arise in the course of your use of your electronic wallet, including any losses that may obtain as a result of any failure of any Smart Contracts, the Site or the App.
  6. The Company reserves the right to modify, suspend or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, all or any part of the Site or the App with or without notice. You agree that the Company will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of all or any part of the Site or the App.
  7. The publicly deployed Smart Contracts you interact with are experimental in nature and you should not utilise the Smart Contracts or App for deployment of any substantial amount of digital assets.

Services

  1. The App is a client-side, non-custodial technical smart-contract based data processing solution which allows users to manage their direct interactions with a variety of third party staking protocols and validators (computing/storage resource providers), deposit digital assets with these third party protocols and parties, withdraw assets from such protocols, all without assets being held by any intermediaries and remaining at all times in control of their digital assets.
  2. When you access certain features of the services, the user interface will allow you to access a non-custodial Smart Contract to perform a variety of transactions. However, you remain in full control of your private keys and digital assets, and your digital assets, tokens and coins are not held or controlled in any way by Stader. Stader does not collect or hold your keys or information - accordingly Stader cannot access your digital assets; recover keys, passwords, or other information; reset passwords; or reverse transactions. You are solely responsible for the safety of your digital assets and your use of the services, including without limitation for storing, backing-up, and maintaining the confidentiality of your private keys, passwords, and information, and for the security of any transactions you perform using the App. You expressly relieve and release Stader from any and all liability and/or loss arising from your use of the services.
  3. Stader provides the interface connecting users directly with various supported third party staking protocols on the relevant Blockchain Network, allowing users to potentially earn interest, fees and token rewards from these third party protocols. These interactions may include participating in the network consensus mechanism, or providing liquidity for said third party protocols. Users will be providing their own digital assets directly to these third party protocols. The level of interest, rates and token rewards are independently determined by these third party protocols, and Stader does not provide any representation or guarantee in connection with the same. Stader may add or remove support for supported third party staking protocols from time to time by revising these Terms and updating the Website.
  4. The App will also allow individual validators (i.e. users which provide computing/storage resources for utilisation by others without such resources) or pools of such validators ("each a **Validator Service Provider**") to offer their resources and services to users on the App which require these resources in order to participate in staking on third party staking protocols. The App allows these Validator Service Providers to share their historical performance/uptime/service standards. Users may select the Validator Service Provider they wish to utilise and enter into direct contractual arrangements with these Validator Service Providers for resources in exchange for a fee.
  5. The Company does not endorse any particular Validator Service Provider or otherwise advise you with respect to a particular Validator Service Provider, and cannot be responsible for any content or other services provided by such Validator Service Providers. Such obligations shall be the exclusive liability of the relevant user and Validator Service Provider under their direct contractual relationship. In particular, the App's proprietary screening system and report are provided to users for informational purposes only, and users should refrain from taking any action in reliance on any information contained in these Terms or provided by or on behalf of the Company. You acknowledge, agree, and understand that you are solely responsible for assessing whether to interact with any third party staking protocol or Validator Service Provider. Before you decide to make any financial, legal, or other decisions relating to any third party staking protocol or Validator Service Provider, you shall conduct all appropriate due diligence and seek all appropriate legal, tax or financial advice from independent professionals in connection with the same. You acknowledge and agree that the Company does not, in any way, supervise, direct, control, or evaluate any third party staking protocol or Validator Service Provider and accordingly cannot be responsible for the same. The Company assumes no liability or obligations under or related to any user, Validator Service Provider, or any acts or omissions by any such parties.
  6. Each Validator Service Provider is free to set its overall fee structure and scope of resources/serviced provided, all of which will be notified to the user prior to any delegation arrangement being set up. The contractual relationship between the user and the Validator Service Provider will be governed by the separate terms notified directly between the parties, and the Validator Service Provider wholly assumes all responsibility towards the user for whom it is providing services. The Company shall in no circumstances be construed as a party to said contract, is not liable for performance of obligations thereunder, nor does it bear any financial or commercial risk in connection with the same.
  7. Neither the Company, the Site nor the App provides any portfolio/fund management services in connection with the services. You should carefully review all claims and representations made by third party staking protocols and Validator Service Providers before making any decision to interact with those third party staking protocols and Validator Service Providers. If you choose to engage in transactions based on information provided to you by these third parties, other users, any content on the Site or the App, then such decisions and transactions and any consequences flowing therefrom are your sole responsibility. In no event shall the Company, its affiliates or their respective directors or employees be responsible or liable to you or anyone else, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss arising from or relating to any interaction or continued interaction with any third party staking protocols or Validator Service Providers, or reliance on any information provided on the Site or the App (including, without limitation, directly or indirectly resulting from errors in, omissions of or alterations to any such information).
  8. THE APP AND UNDERLYING SMART CONTRACTS FUNCTION SOLELY AS AN ADMINISTRATIVE PLATFORM WHICH CONNECTS USERS WITH VARIOUS THIRD PARTY STAKING PROTOCOLS AND VALIDATOR SERVICE PROVIDERS. IN NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL THE COMPANY, THE SMART CONTRACTS, THE SITE OR THE APP BE CONSTRUED AS A BANK, BROKER, DEALER, FUND MANAGER, FINANCIAL INSTITUTION, EXCHANGE, CUSTODIAN, ROBO-ADVISOR, INTERMEDIARY, OR CREDITOR. THE SITE DOES NOT FACILITATE TRANSACTIONS BETWEEN BUYERS AND SELLERS, INCLUDING WITH RESPECT TO ANY STAKING TRANSACTIONS, WHICH TRANSACTIONS OCCUR ON THE RELEVANT BLOCKCHAIN NETWORK AND/OR THIRD-PARTY, UNAFFILIATED PLATFORMS. THE COMPANY IS NOT A COUNTERPARTY TO ANY TRANSACTION RELATING TO THE SMART CONTRACTS, THE SITE OR THE APP OR FOR ANY USER OF THE SITE. NEITHER THE SMART CONTRACTS, THE SITE OR THE APP PROVIDES FINANCIAL ADVISORY, LEGAL, REGULATORY, OR TAX SERVICES DIRECLTY, INDIRECTLY, IMPLICITLY, OR IN ANY OTHER MANNER, AND YOU SHOULD NOT CONSIDER ANY CONTENT CONTAINED IN THESE TERMS OR OTHERWISE POSTED ON THE SITE TO BE A SUBSTITUTE FOR PROFESSIONAL FINANCIAL, LEGAL, REGULATORY, TAX OR OTHER ADVICE. THE COMPANY DOES NOT SUPPORT OR ENDORSE ANY THIRD PARTY STAKING PROTOCOL OR VALIDATOR SERVICE PROVIDER, AND EACH THIRD PARTY STAKING PROTOCOL AND VALIDATOR SERVICE PROVIDER IS AN INDEPENDENT AGENT WITH NO EMPLOYMENT OR OTHER CONTRACTUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH THE COMPANY.
  9. The Company reserves the right to suspend or terminate access to the Site or the App by any user or Validator Service Provider for any reason whatsoever. You agree that the Company will not be liable to you or to any third party for any such suspension or termination.

Fees and Payment

  1. If you elect to interact with third party staking protocols or Validator Service Providers, all digital asset transactions will be conducted solely through the relevant Blockchain Network. We will have no insight into or control over these payments or transactions, nor do we have the ability to reverse any transactions. With that in mind, we will have no liability to you or to any third party for any claims or damages that may arise as a result of any transactions that you engage in via the App, using the Smart Contracts, with any other user or Validator Service Provider, or any other transactions that you conduct via the relevant Blockchain Network.
  2. The relevant Blockchain Network typically requires the payment of a transaction fee (a "**Gas Fee**") for every transaction that occurs on the relevant Blockchain Network. The Gas Fee funds the network of computers that run the decentralised network. This means that you will need to pay a Gas Fee for each transaction that occurs via the App.
  3. You may be subject to certain additional fees and commissions, including fees imposed by Validator Service Providers for provision of resources or services, as notified to you by such parties. The Company also reserves the right to levy additional fees for access via the Smart Contracts, the Site or the App in the future. You agree to promptly pay all aforementioned fees and commissions.
  4. Notwithstanding anything in these Terms to the contrary, you will be solely responsible to pay any and all sales, use, value-added and other taxes, duties, and assessments (except taxes on our net income) now or hereafter claimed or imposed by any governmental authority (collectively, "**Taxes**") associated with your use of the App (including, without limitation, any Taxes that may become payable as the result of your ownership or transfer of digital assets or interaction with any third party staking protocol or Validator Service Provider, or relating to Stader).

You are solely responsible for reporting and paying any taxes arising from your usage of the Smart Contracts, the Site, the App or interactions with any third party staking protocol or Validator Service Provider.

Risks borne by users

  1. Use of the App and interaction with third party staking protocols or Validator Service Providers carry financial risk. You acknowledge and agree that you are aware of such risks, including the following: (a) transactions relating to digital assets are very risky, (b) such digital assets are, by their nature, highly experimental, risky, volatile and generally irreversible and (c) the information provided by these third party staking protocols or Validator Service Providers may be misleading, untrue or incomplete in material aspects. You should not make any transactional decision without first conducting your own research. You are solely and exclusively responsible for determining whether any third party staking protocol or Validator Service Provider is appropriate or suitable for you based on your own objectives and personal and financial situation. You acknowledge and agree that you will access and use the Smart Contracts, the Site and the App and interact with third party staking protocols and Validator Service Providers at your own risk.
  2. You represent that you have sufficient knowledge, market sophistication, professional advice and experience to make your own evaluation of the merits and risks of any interaction with third party staking protocols or Validator Service Providers, and the underlying digital assets. You accept all consequences of participating in such interactions, including the risk that you may lose access to your digital assets indefinitely. All decisions to interact with any third party staking protocol or Validator Service Provider are made solely by you. Notwithstanding anything in these Terms, the Company accepts no responsibility whatsoever for and will in no circumstances be liable to you in connection with any interaction with any third party staking protocol or Validator Service Provider and the underlying digital assets. Under no circumstances will the operation of all or any portion of the Smart Contracts, the Site or the App be deemed to create a relationship that includes any management of any assets, or the provision or tendering of investment advice.
  3. The prices of blockchain assets are extremely volatile. Fluctuations in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect the value of your digital assets held with third party staking protocols or Validator Service Providers, which may also be subject to significant price volatility. We cannot guarantee that any users interacting with third party staking protocols or Validator Service Providers will not lose money.
  4. Neither the Smart Contracts, Site, or the App hold in custody, store, send, or receive any of your digital assets. This is because your digital assets exist only by virtue of the ownership record maintained on the relevant Blockchain Network. Any transfer of digital assets occurs within the relevant Blockchain Network, and not on the Smart Contracts, Site, or the App.
  5. The Smart Contracts may contain security vulnerabilities, errors, failures, bugs or economic loopholes which may be exploited by third parties. Interaction with these Smart Contracts are entirely at your own responsibility and liability, and the Company is not a party to the Smart Contracts. Further, when you interact with any third party staking protocol or Validator Service Provider and place digital assets therein, these digital assets may be re-deployed with various third party DeFi or smart contract protocols. The development team for these third party protocols is independent from the Company, so the Company has no control over these third party protocols or the underlying smart contracts. These smart contracts may contain security vulnerabilities, errors, failures, bugs or economic loopholes which may be exploited by third parties, causing you to suffer losses in connection with any re-deployed digital assets. The Company cannot be responsibility for any security vulnerabilities, errors, failures, bugs or economic loopholes in respect of these third party protocols or the underlying smart contracts.
  6. No third party staking protocol or Validator Service Provider will be able to guarantee the future performance of digital assets held with any third party staking protocol or Validator Service Provider, any specific level of performance, the success of any strategy or your overall results from interacting with the same. When reviewing the information, portfolio, performance, opinions of these parties, do not assume that the user is unbiased, independent or qualified to provide financial information or opinions. Past performance and risk scores have many inherent limitations and are not indicative of future results. No representation or guarantee is being made that any third party staking protocol or Validator Service Provider is likely to achieve gains or losses similar to the past performance. The actual percentage gains or losses experienced by investors will vary depending on many factors.
  7.

Frequently asked questions
What is Stader?

Stader is a non-custodial smart contract-based staking platform that helps you conveniently discover and access staking solutions.We are building key staking middleware infra for multiple PoS networks for retail crypto users, exchanges and custodians.

What is liquid staking?

Liquid staking is the process of locking up funds to earn rewards while still having access to the funds. It allows users to mint a token that represents their staked assets and grows in value as staking rewards accrue. The token will have wide acceptance in Defi and hence allow users to participate in both securing the network via staking and pursue Defi.

How is Stader secure?

Stader is a secure liquid staking solution. We do continuous review and testing of all code. We perform regular audits of smart contract by external auditors (10+ successful audits across multiple chains). We use Multi-sig admin accounts for changing smart contract parameters.

What are the risks of staking with Stader?

There exist some risks when staking using liquid staking protocols.

Smart contract risk: Although the Stader code is thoroughly vetted and audited there exists a possibility of malicious users exploiting a vulnerability or a bug in the contract

Slashing risk: While Stader carefully selects and monitors validators, there exists a risk of one or more of the validators being slashed. Stader also automatically distributes staked assets across multiple validators and this minimizes slashing impact arising from the actions of any individual validator.

Wallet and downstream apps: Wallets and third party apps may have to be used to access staking, users should evaluate the security of the wallets and other third party apps independently, Stader does not hold any responsibility for the security of the wallets or third party applications used in staking platform

The Stader team is committed to delivering the best and most secure staking experience for users.

What networks do you currently support?

We are currently live on Hedera, Polygon, Fantom, Near, Binance, Terra 2.0, and Terra Classic networks. Our liquid staking solution will soon be available on Ethereum 2.0, Solana, and Avalanche networks.
