DeFi in a Bear Market
Bear markets are challenging, and this one has been particularly aggressive. The silver lining in all the red lines is that rug-pulls and overinflated altcoins will slowly decay.
However, real projects that are built with a vision, by and for their communities will become obvious.
At Meta Pool, we are here for the long run. Our project is backed by more than 10 VC firms that invest in projects all around the NEAR ecosystem. Additionally, our community of thousands of users proves our commitment to making a strong, durable project that can not only exist, but also thrive in any market conditions.
The trust and support of our large financial backers as well as of our users enables us to focus on building and improving our products even in moments of uncertainty.
What we are Changing and Why
While growing our platform, partnerships, and benefits, we are excited to formally announce our new branding and new look for the Meta Pool website!
Focusing on NEAR holders and their success, we built our new brand around our users.
Our initial logo was a first attempt to create a brand with focus on decentralization. We are still a decentralized platform, but our vision and focus has shifted to creating financial products in the form of dApps.
Meta Pool’s new logo is built by a set of blocks that are linked together using cryptography (definition of blockchain). Thus resembling the components that form the DeFi ecosystem, commonly named as “money legos”. You can interact with “money legos” in different combinations, benefiting from a level of capital efficiency that vastly surpasses the traditional system.
We want our users to be able to identify the purpose of redesigning our website:
- a more compelling storytelling around the benefits of staking NEAR with us
- showing better possibilities of using stNEAR tokens in a strong DeFi ecosystem.
Meta Poolers now have a comprehensive launchpad to access the different opportunities with stNEAR from our homepage. Also, the access to the latest news, events and launches in the blog.
In short, our new homepage gives you everything you need to know about Meta Pool and stNEAR utility at a glance, and makes it easy for you to move from there.
Meta Pool is finding a new self, while also keeping its values intact. Our mission is to unlock the financial potential of DeFi in the NEAR ecosystem. Our change in image and color best reflect our commitment to creating a product that is for the user.
Meta Pool's Emphasis on Accessibility and Involvement in DeFi
Meta Pool has been the cornerstone of liquid staking on NEAR for a long time. With current market conditions it is appropriate now more than ever to make staking solutions as accessible and user friendly as possible.
Building the best technology is as essential as creating an incredible community. A community that can rely on us and trust the developments being made by Meta Pool. This is why our community was involved in deciding Meta Pool’s new colors via a poll organized on our different social media channels.
As a company born as a DAO, our team members are also now present in the Metaverse! You can distinguish them by their avatars with Meta Pool’s colors. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us on telegram and especially in discord.
We will do our best to help you as much as possible! You can also stay updated on our announcements and events via our twitter feed.
Another example of how we are trying to best serve to NEAR ecosystem and DeFi community is the launch of our new “kickstarter” platform. Meta Yield allows you to support up and coming projects without risking your NEAR.
Meta Yield is an extension of the Meta Pool brand that serves as a riskless way to support projects you believe in built on NEAR’s platform. Users are able to stake their tokens for a locked period, giving the rewards to back the project. In return users earn tokens from the project they are supporting. After the locked period ends, users get their original quantity of NEAR back.
Meta Yield is just another way that Meta Pool is expanding in ways that help move the NEAR DeFi ecosystem forward. Check out our first two fundraising campaigns on the platform – including our current campaign with DAOrecords and their audio NFT alpha, SoundSplash.
About Meta Pool & stNEAR
Meta Pool is the leading liquid staking solution for $NEAR and wNEAR token holders. With Meta Pool you earn NEAR staking rewards and maintain your liquidity to participate in DeFi protocols on NEAR and Aurora.
Users staking $NEAR and wNEAR with Meta Pool receive in exchange stNEAR (staked NEAR) tokens.
stNEAR simultaneously accrues staking rewards and unlocks users’ liquidity enabling them to participate in DeFi activities (e.g. lending, farming, borrowing) on NEAR and Aurora.

Meta Pool also solves the problems associated with Proof-of-Stake networks staking: illiquidity, immovability and accessibility. Meta Pool also aims to distribute staking in multiple validators to improve censorship-resistance of the NEAR network.
With a TVL of ~9 Million $NEAR and growing, Meta Pool has become in just a few months a cornerstone element of the NEAR ecosystem. Meta Pool is making NEAR Protocol more decentralized and therefore more secure.
In February 2022 Meta Pool has been successfully audited by BlockSec, confirming the implementation of the highest security standards.
