How Tenderize emerged, a new integration with Gnosis, and more! Discover all the news from August!
That brazing August heat was full on, but so was our team🌡️
This month, we launched new content exploring the ecosystems that Tenderize supports and how the idea for our protocol came about.
Our highlight of the month was the manifesto, which takes a step back from development to discuss higher level values, goals, and objectives of what Tenderize was created to achieve in the first place.
Additionally, we announced more integrations and were in full mode of development, with a developer retreat to advance Tenderize even more.

From a side project to a fully-fledged protocol: Discover the Tenderize journey
Nico, our founder, first had the idea for Tenderize while working at Livepeer, one of the leading Web 3 infrastructure players.
From there, Nico recognized the need for a standalone protocol, with Livepeer backing the first iteration of Tenderize. Then, the team was formed, and Tenderize received grants that fueled the project leading up to the mainnet launch.
Today, Tenderize supports Web 3 infrastructure players to get more capital diversification and efficiency through liquid staking, with many more updates coming soon.
Learn more about the MATIC ecosystem and start earning compounded rewards
Polygon (MATIC) took the crypto world by storm by becoming the go-to Layer 2 solution under Ethereum. With its rise to fase, Polygon brought more cost-efficiency, and scalability with a low environmental footprint.
Polygon went from 0 to over 9 million daily transactions in less than a year, becoming the de facto choice for developers and investors.
Now, MATIC holders can boost their capital efficiency, earn compounded rewards, and diversify their tokens with liquid staking through Tenderize.
