Mitya Argunov Interview
Background on Dmitry Argunov
Mitya Argunov is the Chief Product Officer for P2P.org and technical expert in Ethereum and blockchain development. With extensive experience from holding leadership roles in finance and tech industries, Mitya is an expert when it comes to building products that offer users the best platform to stake their assets. He joined P2P.org as Senior Product Manager where he manages staking and infrastructure products across multiple blockchain ecosystems based in Cyprus.
Benefits of Direct Staking
Argunov discussed the most significant benefits of direct staking such as allowing users full control over their funds with no custodians involved, providing higher returns due to lack of middlemen fees, having lower minimum deposit requirements which makes it more accessible for smaller investors or those just starting out, reducing counterparty risk associated with third party providers, providing increased transparency by showing voting power distribution among validators and allowing users to engage quickly since there’s no need to wait for deposits or withdrawals because you already own your funds (no custodian).
How P2P Differs from Other Staking Platforms
Argunov also spoke on how P2P differs from other staking platforms such as offering a non-custodial service which allows user full control over their funds while still being able to securely interact with other stakeholders through smart contracts, having zero withdrawal fees compared to others who charge up to 5%, an intuitive interface which allows users to easily navigate through different features without any technical knowledge required while also featuring comprehensive analytics tools that provide detailed insights into different metrics like rewards or inflation rates etc., focusing on network security by only supporting well established validators that have gone through rigorous vetting process before being allowed onto our network, being compatible with all major hardware wallets like Ledger Live/Nano X or Trezor One/Model T etc., providing access to numerous blockchains like Ethereum 1 & 2 networks (PoS/Casper), Polkadot parachains (PoA) , Cosmos Hub (Tendermint-based PoS) etc., giving support for fiat deposits via credit cards thereby eliminating volatility risks associated with cryptocurrencies , limiting voting power concentration among few large stakeholders by introducing maximum cap for individual votes .
Non-Custodial Staking Services
When discussing non-custodial staking services offered by P2P, he highlighted some key advantages such as removing reliance on third parties who could potentially be malicious or not reliable enough thus ensuring better user safety & privacy plus faster confirmation times due to elimination of external communication delays between two separate entities . Lastly he mentioned that these services are increasingly becoming popular since they allow users full control over their funds without sacrificing any convenience associated with traditional custodial solutions .
The Future Of Staking
Finally when asked about his views on future of staking , Argunov sees it becoming more mainstream than ever before since more people are getting educated about this technology & its potential applications plus growing institutional interest will help spur wider adoption rates . He believes that further improvements can be made around scalability , interoperability & accessibility but ultimately these will all depend upon how quickly underlying protocols can evolve over time along side increasing demand from end users .
