Hubble Exchange Partners with Benqi for Validating the Hubblenet


Hubble Exchange has strategically chosen BENQI to become one of the first partners to validate the Hubblenet. BENQI is a lending protocol as well as the leading liquid staking protocol on Avalanche; its latest product Ignite focuses on providing an easy and low cost way for developers to launch Avalanche Subnets. BENQI will run three nodes, significantly enhancing the degree of decentralization of the Hubblenet in its early stages.

The Hubblenet will initially launch as a permissioned network, requiring validators to be whitelisted. BENQI’s Ignite offering makes them a perfect fit for this role. Their support ensures robust and efficient validation, creating a secure foundation for the network in its early days.

As the Hubblenet matures, it is designed to become elastic and permissionless, enabling any validator to join in by staking Hubble Exchange tokens and running an Avalanche validator. The transition towards greater decentralization is an essential part of our vision for Hubble Exchange, and we are confident that BENQIi’s expertise will also play a crucial role in this evolution.

“Hubblenet is an exciting leap forward for the industry, bringing hyper efficient on-chain perpetuals to the masses. As ardent supporters of the Avalanche ecosystem, BENQI is honoured to do its part in Hubblenet’s success. I am especially excited for the validator economy of different orderbooks that will emerge as the network matures.”_ — Dan Mgbor, Co-founder
