Everything You Need to Know about Persistence One

Furthermore, Persistence One is enhancing the Cosmos ecosystem by introducing restaking.

Persistence One has emerged as a significant contributor within the Cosmos Network, introducing innovative solutions such as pSTAKE Finance for multi-chain liquid staking and Dexter, a decentralized exchange optimized for trading and liquidity. These offerings are central to encouraging the wider use of Liquid Staking Tokens (LSTs). Furthermore, Persistence One is enhancing the Cosmos ecosystem by introducing restaking.

Today, let’s dive into: 

  • Persistence One and its array of products. 

  • The new features they plan to introduce.

The Persistence One Ecosystem

Persistence One is a purpose-built Layer 1 on a mission to maximize liquid staking yield. It provides a secure and robust infrastructure for dApps to build an economy around LSTs. Here is an overview of the Persistence ecosystem:

  • pStake Finance

  • Dexter

  • XPRT

pSTAKE Finance

pSTAKE Finance is a multi-chain liquid staking provider. It operates on the Persistence chain for Cosmos-based assets and extends its services to other ecosystems like BNB. The core functionality of pSTAKE lies in enabling holders of proof of stake (PoS) tokens to stake their assets on its platform. Not only does the platform incur lesser fees than the competition, but pSTAKE's automated stake decentralization delegation model constantly optimizes for decentralization by using various parameters to suggest the final validator set and the amount of stake delegation to each validator in this set.


Dexter is crucial in the Persistence ecosystem as the primary liquidity hub. It enhances the platform by providing liquidity for LSTs from pSTAKE and other valuable tokens, attracting users, and boosting on-chain activity. 

Dexter pools listed in descending order of APR.

XPRT Token

XPRT is the native token of the Persistence Core-1 blockchain. It is integral to both the operational and governance aspects of the Persistence ecosystem. Its primary utilities in the Persistence ecosystem include:

  • Chain security

  • Governance

  • Ecosystem traction

  • Transaction fees
