Chainlink (LINK) staking will be launched towards the end of this year, bringing what the crypto described as a “key cryptoeconomic security mechanism” and “one mechanism in a broader initiative around Chainlink Economics 2.0.”   

The initial beta version of LINK staking will be launched in December 2022. In preparation for the mainnet, the Early Access Eligibility App for Chainlink Staking v0.1 has been launched and can be accessed at

The staking of Chainlink allows “decentralised oracle networks (DONs) to scale to service a broader range of applications and higher value use cases across Web 3.0 and traditional Web 2.0 industries,” the project says.

Chainlink Economics 2.0 entails an array of programmes that “focus on improving data security and utility, reducing the operating costs of oracle services, increasing user fees that are paid to Chainlink service providers, and enabling a broader scope of service providers such as stakers to participate in the Chainlink ecosystem.”


Pentoshi’s bullish opinion

The crypto analyst who goes by the alias Pentoshi, and who has more than 641,000 followers on Twitter, believes LINK will enjoy a rise in price, with the upcoming staking system acting as as a “catalyst” for the crypto’s rise.

Pentoshi added that people may be “quiet on it now” but he does not think that will be the case in the near future.

Early access

The Early Access Eligibility App will guide members through a “step-by-step” process to see if they qualify for early access to the v0.1 staking pool. To have access to this, members must check their eligibility via the app.

Those who are deemed eligible for early entry to the staking pool will be given the opportunity to stake up to 7,000 LINK “in a first-come, first-serve manner until the pool cap is reached.”

Those who are not eligible for the early start will also be able to stake 7,000 LINK “for at least the start”.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
