Loki is a privacy and communications focused project. Founded in 2017, we have been involved in the Loki Project as both a miner and service node operator since shortly after it's main net launch in 2018. Based in Melbourne Australia, but with development globally, Loki is building a network of Service nodes that route traffic, communications and other information using cryptography to provide complete privacy in transactions and sharing of information. Currently, there are over 1100 service nodes world wide. We launched our first service node in September 2018 and currently run 8 service nodes on virtual private servers (VPS) distributed globally.
The Loki foundation and community is very strong and supportive We have been very impressed with the progress that they have made and the commitment they have to produce one of the most innovative blockchain projects of it's kind. They are extremely active, delivering on their road map and producing products such as Session Messenger and Lokinet. We will share with you via our social media all of their news and the progress of their project.

We find it easiest to stake with the GUI wallet. In the GUI wallet, the 3rd tab is for service node staking. Simply click on that tab. You need to copy the service node public key from Lokiblocks.com or Lokisn.com. Type in the amount you wish to stake, and press the stake button. You will be prompted for your wallet password. Enter it and it will proceed to register you on the Loki blockchain. The node is not complete until the full amount is staked. To unstake, simply click service node tab and select the node you are staking to. Hit the unlock button, enter your password and you will be unstaked in 15 days.
