Dear Stakers,

      2021 has been all about PoS Chains taking centre stage. The multi-chain world arrived successfully. And it is built on Proof of Stake technology. Right as predicted in 2017 when we started

      2022 will be the year that hits the nail in the Proof of Work coffin. At least for every chain that is trying to do a tad more than hard store of value. 2022 will be the year of the Ethereum 2.0 Merge to Proof of Stake.

      While the multi-chain world arrived, it will be especially interesting to watch the emergence of Layer 2, and the Inter-Chain. Meaning chains will scale up, and many application will even get their own chains. We can see that with the explosion of L2 on Ethereum, and Cosmos Ecosystem starting right now.

      Terra is continuously hitting all-time highs and the Cosmos ecosystem is gaining momentum after the recent launch of IBC. As of yesterday Osmosis hit $1B TVL.
