StakeCube in Numbers
Bitcoin finally reached a new all time high this week, breaking above $66,000 on Wednesday. This was probably prompted by the release of the first Bitcoin futures ETF in the US, with a second one joining only two days later. All of this action overheated the market and we ended up losing some gains towards the end of the week. Altcoins underperformed on the way up but caught up significantly in the last few days. Particularly Solana seems to be having a great week, climbing to the top 6. On StakeCube things were pretty stable, with SCC following the general market trend. Daily exchange volume seems to have bottomed out and remains at pretty good levels.
- User Count: 125,017 +0.57%
- Pool Value: 565.77 BTC -0.92%
- Daily BTC Mined: 0.092 BTC -1.07%

- Alexa Rank 19,781 +171
This week BIR topped the list with a huge growth of 78%. Second was SYS also with a very impressive 44.1%. This could have been a reaction to the release of their smart contract roadmap:
These were the top 5 gainers for this week:

New Logo Release
As we have mentioned in the past, we are working on a complete re-brand for StakeCube to come with the release of the new version. Having a brand is important, as it imbues our platform and community with a clear identity that helps us stand out and be recognized. Attractive visual elements are essential not just to be more easily noticed but also to be remembered afterwards. Today we took the first step towards this rebrand with the release of our new logo. Check it out in this official video release:
The new logo has been submitted to all relevant platforms that list StakeCube, such as CoinGecko or CoinMarketCap. In the next few days we will also implement the logo on the SCP wallet, SCPscan and all social media. We expect this new image will help our marketing efforts moving forward. You can find a complete media set with different size and background logos, wallpapers and other useful files here:
While this is an important milestone, there are many other elements of our re-brand yet to be made public. In the coming weeks we will be releasing further steps and once the re-brand is complete we will bring this new image to the StakeCube.net platform as well.
Metabrands and StakeCube Ventures
As we announced in our newsletter from 2 weeks ago we have invested as a company in an upcoming Metaverse project. You can read the announcement we made here:
Today we can share with you the first details.
MetaBrands is a Metaverse resource DAO providing exposure to top-performing NFTs, play-to-earn models and player-owned economies. MetaBrands connects people with innovative brands by bridging the gap between platforms and ecosystems. It is an excellent way to discover, participate, and invest in different metaverse projects through seamlessly implemented yield-sharing programs. MetaBrands will be initially launched on the Ethereum blockchain, with the plan to bridge to other blockchains in the future. Oleg Warkentin, the founder of StakeCube, has officially joined MetaBrands as a DAO Advisor. StakeCube is excited to be partnered with MetaBrands to explore together new ways to cooperate both inside and outside its ecosystem. If you want to know more about MetaBrands, visit the following official website and social media:
White Paper: https://whitepaper.metabrands.io/
Telegram (Ann): https://t.me/MetaBrandsAnn
With this investment we open a whole new chapter for StakeCube called StakeCube Ventures (SCV). This new side of the business will participate in presales and new project launches, of which MetaBrands will be the first.
MAGE Utility Token
MAGE Utility Token is a token issued by MetaBrands. These are some of its functions, and perks:
- NFT Minting: Used to mint NFT Relics, Heroes and more.
- Yield: Airdropped on a monthly basis in MAGE Utility Tokens.
- Payments: Trade and use as a liquid cryptocurrency asset.
- Governance: Vote and create proposals.
- Staking: Earn yield by contributing to the liquidity pool
- Whitelisting: For internal and external events
- Discounts: Get discounts on NFT purchases using the MAGE Utility Token
Thanks to its unique tokenomics model, asset diversification, and exposure to various play-to-earn environments, the MAGE Utility Token is well equipped to withstand market volatility. Assets from these environments generate yield in direct correlation with the expanding player-base throughout the rapidly evolving metaverse. This in turn provides MetaBrands with monthly resources that are used to purchase MAGE from the public to redistribute them among eligible Relic NFT Holders.

Monk Collateral Change
After block 200,000, Monk masternodes increased their collateral requirement from 8,000 coins to 12,000 . This makes it necessary to redeploy all masternodes with the new collateral. Users must destroy all hot nodes they had with the previous collateral, and set up new ones.
As we informed two weeks ago, a “halving” event has happened for SCC 2 days ago on block 250,000. It reduced the issuance of new coins from 9 SCC per block to 8 SCC. Of these, 5.6 SCC will go to masternode owners while 2.4 SCC will go to miners. With 11% fewer coins created per block, we could see a positive effect on prices. You can read all the basic characteristics and reward structure for SCC here:
New BTC2 Trading Pairs
At the request of the BTC2 team, we have added 3 new market pairs for BTC2:
Please keep in mind that new trading pairs usually have low liquidity until the order-books are sufficiently populated. Big market orders can take a huge slippage and cause you to lose money if you are not careful. Always check the order-book to see if there is enough liquidity for your market order, or simply use limit orders.
New Rocket League Tournament
Our E-Sports team is organizing a new Rocket League tournament that will take place next month. This time we have taken the streaming to a whole new level by purchasing a B2B service for the video streaming and complementing it with GFX solutions. You can see these in action on this screenshot:
We also want to increase the number of participating teams from 16 to 32, as last time we received many more applications than we expected. In order to join, head over to the E-Sports Discord server and open a support ticket, or contact the E-Sports staff:
Information regarding the event:
- Date: 20th of November
- Game: Rocket League

BNB and BEP20 token wallets are in maintenance in order to perform a wallet update. Deposits made during maintenance will not be credited automatically. To avoid possible issues or delays, please never deposit funds to a wallet that is not online. We expect the wallet to come out of maintenance within 24 hours.
The past week our efforts focused mainly on developing UI InstantSend for SCP-4: Collections and NFTs. Collections now have full InstantSend integration, with NFTs progressing rapidly as well. Once finished this will greatly improve functionality by providing instant deployment of collections, NFT minting, transfers and burns.
Along with these major developments, there were some minor UX/UI improvements:
- A minor issue causing SCC in the wallet to appear “duplicated” is now fixed. This was related to the mempool tracking of spent/unspent UTXOs in relation to on-chain confirmed UTXOs. The fix should now make wallets (GUI and API) more stable.
- NFT Image previews for images containing spaces in their filenames are now correctly displayed.
- Collections now load and render faster after bootup/restart of the wallet.
- All activity now loads and refreshes faster in the GUI wallet.
- After deploying a collection, the UI now switches to the Collections menu and scrolls down to your new collection. There, new InstantSend and deployment indicators can be found.
Wallet Maintenance News
We updated the following wallets:
Previous version: 126.96.36.199
New version: 188.8.131.52
This was a minor update, masternode restarts were not required.
