What is Jito Network – The Future of Liquid Staking on Solana (JTO)

Jito Network is a permissionless liquid staking protocol on Solana. It aims to address the adverse effects of MEV (Miner Extractable Value) on Solana. They do so by redistributing MEV profits fairly among stakers.

Essential information for their token is available on the MEXC Digital asset introduction page. Furthermore, we are listing (JTO/USDT – Trade it here) on the Innovation Zone! Check it out now!

What Exactly is Jito Network?

Jito Network is a permissionless liquid staking protocol. It is specifically designed to counteract the adverse effects of Maximum Extractable Value (MEV) on the Solana blockchain. The core objective is to equitably redistribute MEV profits among stakers. Users have the opportunity to stake their SOL tokens with Jito, receiving JitoSOL—a liquid derivative that represents their staked tokens.

Here is how it works. The Jito Stake Pool takes the staked assets and delegates them to MEV-enabled validators. These validators, through transaction re-ordering, arbitrage, and other strategies, generate profits. These profits are then redirected to increase the Annual Percentage Yield (APY) for JitoSOL holders, allowing them to reap the benefits of both staking yields and MEV rewards.

Jito’s innovative approach harnesses MEV, unlocking not only higher earning potential but also liquidity and direct participation in on-chain governance for SOL holders. Therefore, this integration positions Jito Network at the forefront of DeFi innovation on the Solana blockchain.

How Do JTO Tokens Work on the Jito Network?

Jito has a unique approach to staking. It employs stake pools as a tool for decentralizing the network and improving overall performance. These stake pools, which are made up of one or more validator nodes, provide users with a cost-effective way to delegate their SOL tokens. Users receive JitoSOL tokens in exchange for participating in stake pools.

JitoSOL is a token that provides its holders with the opportunity to grow their assets through staking and MEV rewards. MEV, deeply embedded in the blockchain realm, signifies profit opportunities arising from executing specific transaction orders. JitoSOL is intricately designed to optimize capital efficiency through integration with DeFi platforms. By holding JitoSOL, users can generate income from validators and concurrently accrue interest through lending protocols or yield farming. The primary objective of Jito is to maximize returns for JitoSOL holders and enhance the performance of the Solana network.

To ensure the protocol’s security, JitoSOL undergoes a full audit and operates on a non-custodial basis. This ensures that even if Jito were to cease operations, holders retain complete control over their deposited SOL and accrued rewards. Jito addresses potential risks related to validator selection and fees through a multi-signature operation, requiring agreement from a majority of the founding team for any changes.

Furthermore, Solana benefits from stake pools as they contribute to the network’s decentralization. These pools distribute stakes among numerous validator nodes, each with its own set of requirements and delegation tactics. Some pools even mandate validators to be spread across different geographical locations and meet specific performance benchmarks to be part of the validator set.

Jito places a strong emphasis on supporting high-quality network operators, striking a balance between providing high yields for JitoSOL holders and aligning with Solana’s decentralization goals.
