“Exploring Crypto Staking: Matt Leisinger on How to Attract Institutional Investors”
Cryptocurrency staking is gaining traction as a form of investment among institutional investors, and Alluvial, a software development company supporting the implementation of the Liquid Collective protocol, is making it easier for them to take part.
In episode 18 of Cointelegraph’s Hashing It Out podcast, Matt Leisinger, chief product officer at Alluvial, sat down with Elisha Owusu Akyaw to discuss the world of crypto staking and its potential to attract institutional investors.
Leisinger, who started his career in traditional finance and shifted to trading cryptocurrencies in 2016, explained liquid staking as a way for users to stake assets on the blockchain and mint a receipt token that represents the staked assets, which maintains liquidity while users earn rewards and secure the network.
He also shared his thoughts on the future of Ether staking after the Shanghai upgrade, which he believes will derisk participation in staking and attract interest.
Leisinger pointed out that while most institutional investors would naturally choose liquid staking, hurdles around Know Your Customer and Anti-Money Laundering requirements, transparency, tokenholder privileges, and counter-party risks must first be dealt with. He said that Alluvial provides a solution for enterprises by dealing with these hurdles that slow down adoption.
On regulations, Leisinger said that firms like Alluvial “really want” regulatory clarity. He explained that there are two types of staking: direct staking and actively managed staking. Both have different implications from a regulatory perspective around token ownership, security and transparency. He believes liquid staking is better positioned to withstand regulatory pressure due to its transparency.
Leisinger also admitted that a lack of regulatory clarity has had a chilling effect on institutional staking. He remains positive, however, that with new milestones like the Ethereum Shapella upgrade, more investors will be encouraged to take part.

Cryptocurrency staking has become a popular way for investors to make money, and NFTs are no exception. NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, are unique digital assets that are used to represent real-world assets, such as artwork, digital collectibles, or even real estate.
NFTs are gaining traction in the crypto space as a way to promote, market, and sell digital assets. And with the rise of NFTs, many organizations are looking for ways to promote and market their NFTs to potential buyers.
One of the most effective ways to do this is through NFT marketing. NFT marketing is a specialized form of marketing that focuses on promoting NFTs to potential buyers. This can include social media campaigns, influencer marketing, and even email campaigns.
In addition to traditional marketing methods, organizations are also turning to specialized NFT marketing agencies to help them promote and market their NFTs. These agencies specialize in creating custom campaigns that target potential buyers and help organizations maximize their return on investment.
Organizations are also turning to specialized web3 agencies to help them reach potential buyers. Web3 agencies specialize in creating custom campaigns that target web3 users, and they can help organizations reach potential buyers who are interested in investing in NFTs.
By leveraging NFT marketing and web3 agencies, organizations can reach potential buyers and maximize their return on investment. With the right strategies in place, organizations can successfully promote and market their NFTs and increase their sales.Disclaimer: All investment or financial opinions expressed by MoonLanding Media are not recommendations and are intended for entertainment purposes only.
