- Meta Pool is officially turning 1 year old on August 23rd
- We are celebrating with a week full of AMAs about all things liquid staking
- Read about our team, and read about our growth as a project
Meta Pool’s team would like to thank each and every user for making our time in the NEARverse so rewarding. We are a dedicated team of product builders and we are proud of the work we have done for the NEAR ecosystem.
We are celebrating our anniversary with a series of Twitter Spaces that will happen over the course of the next week. We also want to extend a special thank you to all the team members who have contributed to our success. Without our community and team of builders dedicated to a healthy DeFi ecosystem, we would not be where we are today.

Thank You to the Community
We would like to start by thanking Meta Pool’s OG members, those stakers that decided to support our community launch back on August 23rd, 2021. There is a very special subgroup of our community that has been a part of this journey from the Narwallets project. This is where Meta Staking Pool began to be alpha tested for more than three months, and before our co-founder Claudio joined the project.
When looking at the Narwallets discord in 2021, there was a very engaged group of crypto enthusiasts. This community sold Claudio on the idea of launching a liquid staking platform – and after he joined the team we haven’t looked back. For more information about our vision and goals as a team, check out this article.
It Takes a Team to Succeed
We owe our success to our dedicated group of bright and extraordinary individuals that work so hard behind the scenes at Meta Pool. All builders will know that nothing significant can be accomplished without a team of hard-working individuals dedicated toward the same goal.
Meta Pool’s wonderful team started with just a couple of folks on the team – Lautaro, Dani and Alan; and our co-founders Lucio and Claudio leading the launch. We’ve now increased our team to 22 members who work hard every day and night (long hours are sometimes required) to support the leading liquid staking platform on NEAR and Aurora.
We want to say thank you. To Klara, Alyona, Brian, Francisco, Guillaume, Lucas, Alejandro, Chema, Iván, Sergio, Julio, Leandro, Bochenn, Nico, Wyatt, Ezra, Cibeles and Will. It has been an incredible 12 months working and building – and we look forward to celebrating our next year of growth.

And remember – Keep on Staking!
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.

More APY and more rewards
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.
