DeFi Solutions for Institutions and Crypto Enterprises

As of May 2021, the Ethereum DeFi ecosystem has surpassed US$60 billion in collateral. Cryptocurrency exchanges, funds, decentralized projects, and financial institutions seek to engage and capitalize on opportunities created by this new economic system. ConsenSys offers several software solutions to facilitate entry and participation in DeFi.

The Problem

As the Ethereum DeFi ecosystem grows by billions of dollars each week in collateral, cryptocurrency funds, family offices, and financial institutions increasingly seek exposure and access to the diverse decentralized finance opportunities that compose Web3.

Earn rewards with ETH staking

The Problem

Since December 2020, thousands of validators have staked billions of dollars in order to earn rewards for securing the Ethereum 2.0 Beacon Chain. Crypto funds, exchanges, and financial institutions are among the big players in this space.

However, becoming a validator is complicated. Maintaining validator infrastructure and fulfilling responsibilities generates both overhead and risk exposure. While technical bugs, software failures, and connectivity issues can jeopardize rewards, mismanagement of keys and transaction problems can lead to a loss of principal funds.

The Solution

ConsenSys Staking aims to unlock the collaborative power of web3 communities by enabling everyone to gain a stake in decentralized networks. Our mission is to make staking accessible to everyone—by offering embedded and rich staking experiences that are highly secure, reliable and performant. 

Our proven track record demonstrates why users chose to stake with us:

  • Our staking solutions have been in production since the launch of the Beacon Chain in 2020
  • Our validators have never been slashed, ever—thanks to the tools and processes in place to monitor, evaluate and mitigate our risks, in coordination with the ConsenSys security team.
  • We have a participation rate upward of 99.9% for the validators we operate, indicating stable product uptime.
  • Our infrastructure is non-custodial and distributed across multiple clouds, regions, and validator clients. This prevents threats that may lead to a correlated outage across the staking ecosystem.
  • We offer real-time monitoring capability, so users can consistently monitor validator performance.
  • We have a SOC 2 Type I and II certification and are working on ISO20001.

Build your DeFi applications on trusted infrastructure

The Problem

While cryptocurrency exchanges need to facilitate token trades, liquidity management, and new pool creation; exchange aggregators need to source on-chain prices, query user balances, and track the state of user transactions. In order to accomplish this, they need to pull an array of information from smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain. This data is used to inform pricing between pairs, user balances, and swap rates. 

Crypto exchanges and exchange aggregators need reliable infrastructure to access this data, in addition to scaling capabilities in order to meet large request volumes.

The Solution

The Infura API suite helps cryptocurrency exchanges like Uniswap and exchange aggregators like Paraswap meet the data demands of their users, with easy integration and high volume scaling capabilities.
