This Week on StakeCube, 27th of August 2021

General News

StakeCube in Numbers

The Crypto markets had a very interesting week, with NFT projects being the clear protagonists. We got the news that Visa has bought a Crypto Punk for their art collection, while Etherrocks are selling for more than $1 million a piece. As for Bitcoin, we got a small correction after bouncing off of the $50,000 level. Our figures for the week also reflect a small decrease in activity. As predicted, StakeCube exchange volume seems to be returning to normal levels now that the rush to buy TUP has passed. Mining revenue was affected once again by the rising network difficulty, as hashrate slowly returns to the levels it had before the China ban.

BIR was our top performer, with an incredible weekly growth of 349.92%. Although this figure is much higher than all the others, COLX’s price increase was also notable and would have topped the list any other week. This was this week’s top five:

Some More StakeCube Figures

We have reached the impressive milestone of 2 million credited masternode rewards. At the moment of writing, the figures are 1,401,083 shared masternode and 642,295 hot node rewards for a total of 2,043,378.

As for MineCube, demand stayed strong with twice as many workers sold every day compared to a month ago.

These are other MineCube statistics for today:

  • 261 users with at least 100% recovered
  • 159 average workers per user
  • Highest recovery rate: 108.77%
Wallets in Maintenance

The ULG team managed to resolve the issues they were having and asked us to take the wallet out of maintenance. It is now online and staking.

The BITB wallet still hasn’t finished syncing. Sync speed fell to around half what it previously was due to the blocks containing more transactions on average. We estimate that at this rate it could take another 1 or 2 weeks to finish. At the moment there are around 500,000 blocks left to process. We will continue to work with the BITB team to try to tackle the situation and bring the wallet back online as soon as possible.

We are waiting for the GHOST team to deliver a new version of the wallet. They provided one this week but it proved to be unstable. Work continues on their side to be able to produce a version that solves the remaining issues.

New E-Sports Tournament

We have planned a new E-Sports event that will take place 2 weeks from now on the 11th of September. Once again, the game will be Rocket League.

If you want to join, all you have to do is send your application here:

For this you will need a personal invitation code. To get one, please join our E-Sports Discord server and ask one of our team members. Here’s a link to it:

This time it will be a one day event, which will require us to start a bit earlier and hopefully have a winner around 10 or 11 pm CEST.

If you’re interested in sponsoring the tournament, feel free to open a ticket on the E-Sports Discord server. We have several different sponsor packs available.

Marbles on Stream

We are in the planning phase of a new community event: Marbles on Stream. Marbles is a racing game that allows people watching a stream to participate by typing a command in the chat. The game then assigns them a marble which will race against the marbles of other viewers. The first three to reach the end line will earn a SCC prize. Prizes will be credited using the bot on the E-Sports Discord, so make sure that you have an account.

Once everything is ready, we will make a further announcement. In the meantime go to our Twitch channel and give us a follow to make sure you don’t miss on any of the action:

If the event is a success, we will organize it periodically.

Axie Infinity Scholarship

Applications are now open for spots in our scholarship program. To be eligible, please fill out this form:

We will start out with around 20 teams, with the aim to increase this number in the future. To do so, a part of the profits will be dedicated to a growth fund that will finance purchases of new Axies.

Your share of the profits will start at 40%, with possibility to increase that up to 60%. Share increases will be granted to users with higher earnings, in order to reward our most hardworking players. These are the shares for the corresponding earnings:

  • Players earning less than 100 SLP per day: 40%
  • Players earning between 100 and 125 SLP per day: 50%
  • Players earning more than 125 SLP per day: 60%

Payouts will be made to your StakeCube account during the first week of each month. To be able to credit these payouts, we will list SLP on StakeCube before the first payout in October.

Tax Tracker Integrations

We are still waiting for feedback from the Tax Tracking websites we contacted regarding integration. We expect to be able to provide some news on this front soon.

Ethereum Fee Display and Fee Increase

The display for Ethereum withdrawals should now accurately reflect the fee that will be charged.

Additionally and due to the huge increase in gas prices we feel forced to increase withdrawal fees for Ethereum from $10 to $15. You can keep track of gas prices on the following website:
