Talos and Figment join forces for institutional-focused ETH staking

Rick Steves

“The Figment Talos integration is a revolutionary step to enable institutional customers with an end-to-end non-custodial solution for digital assets.”

Ethereum

Talos has announced a partnership with Figment to expand access to protocol staking rewards for Talos customers. Mutual clients will soon be able to stake, and view balances and rewards directly from within the Talos UI powered by Figment’s suite of APIs.

By combining Talos’s trading solution with Figment’s complete staking architecture, institutional participants will be offered an optimal solution for trading and staking digital assets, namely Ethereum.

Staking ETH offers token holders an opportunity to secure the network and earn rewards – of freshly minted ETH and transaction fees – in the process for contributing to the stability and security of the Ethereum network.

Figment Talos integration for institutional customers with end-to-end non-custodial solution

By combining Talos’s advanced trading solution with Figment’s comprehensive staking architecture, we are creating an optimal platform for institutions to trade and stake ether. This integration demonstrates our commitment to delivering innovative solutions that meet the evolving needs of institutional investors in the digital asset space.”

Ben Spiegelman, Head of Corporate Development at Figment, commented: “The Figment Talos integration is a revolutionary step to enable institutional customers with an end-to-end non-custodial solution for digital assets. Talos is established as the market leader for digital asset trading and we are excited to enable their customers’ the ability to earn staking rewards for Ethereum on the same platform they trade on.”
