As many funds act as a fiduciary to their investors, earning rewards through Delegated Proof of Stake (staking) activities has always been difficult due to risk. As the first custodian to offer staking from safe, offline storage of assets, Coinbase Custody changes this calculus.
Much like Coinbase Custody is enabling safe staking for the first time, participating in governance activities like voting on protocol measures is now possible while assets are kept offline. We currently offer support for Maker Governance, with support for more networks coming soon.
