The news was also published in a tweet by the cryptocurrency data analysis platform Staking Rewards, stating that this has made LUNA the largest Proof-of-Stake (PoS) network by staking market cap.

At press time, Terra’s staked value was standing at $32.08 billion, with 41.79% of eligible tokens staked. It was very closely followed by Solana at $32.04 billion and 74.34% staked tokens. Finally, Ethereum 2.0 was in third place with a staked market cap of $25.15 billion and 7.92% staked tokens.

The development comes in the wake of the newest milestone for Ethereum, as the amount of ETH staked in the 2.0 contract surpassed 10 million. This achievement was contributed by over 65,910 uniques addresses, according to the data from the AI research firm IntoTheBlock.
