This is the thirty-seventh issue of Seeking Yield by Staked, a weekly update about the most interesting things happening in crypto asset staking and lending.
📜 Staked Developer Docs
We recently refreshed our developer documentation to make it as easy as possible to integrate the Robo-Advisor for Yield (RAY) and/or staking-as-a-service into your business.
If you have a product which uses Web3, integrating RAY is as simple as dropping in a few lines of code. Partners offering staking-as-a-service are able to integrate with our staking infrastructure directly through our API services.
Integrate and generate more revenue for your business!
