Announcing Launchpool’s New Staking Pool Sizes
What Is Progress Without Change…. Introducing The New “MAX“ Staking Pool Sizes.
Over the last few weeks the Launchpool Team has been engaging with the Community to discuss the idea of making a few changes to the staking pool sizes. This comes on the heels of a review of the staking pool activities and the realization that there has been a significant imbalance between the allocation received by those taking part in the staking pools.
As such, the decision was taken to increase the max staking pool sizes as follows:
Max 50 Pool - Now Max 250 Pool
Max 250 Pool - Now Max 1000 Pool
Unlimited Pool - Remains Unlimited Pool
On Thursday 9th December, the Launchpool Team hosted a Community AMA to discuss these changes and a Medium Article was also shared to highlight the rational for these updates. The Launchpool Team would like to remind the Investor Community, that all decisions and subsequent actions, are always made with the best interest of the Community and longevity of the Launchpool Project in mind.
Launchpool Newest Partnership - ARCHAX
We Have A Big Announcement To Make…Launchpool Has Partnered With Archax For Equity Raises!
Last Tuesday we announced an exciting partnership with Archax, the first FCA regulated digital securities exchange, broker and custodian. This partnership will provide new services for all stakeholders, the Launchpool Community and investment funds, as well as offering projects optionality when raising capital.
Archax is the only UK regulated digital securities exchange, broker and custodian. It was also the first firm on the FCA’s Cryptoasset register, and uniquely can offer clients access to traditional securities, digital securities and cryptocurrencies all on one platform. It also offers firms the ability to issue security tokens and to raise capital in the form equity — both traditionally and digitally.
This new partnership will enable Launchpool projects to raise capital for equity through Archax’s regulatory compliant platform. Moreover, Launchpool projects who wish to issue a security token will now have an avenue through which to pursue this. This means firms will now have the opportunity to raise funds by following both regulated and unregulated pathways.

Reddit, one of the worlds biggest social media sites, just launched a waitlist to join its community token rewards program. Previously only open to subreddits such as r/ethtrader and r/cryptocurrency, Reddit is expanding access so that people can earn tokens for their posts on various subreddits.
Currently all tokens are on the testnet so they are extremely risky to move or trade, however this move will be interesting to watch seeing as the success of things like Odysee and Hive have proved that people are interested in earning for their usage of a social media network.
