Any OG marines here who’s sitting on their LINK stacks and contemplating whether to stake right now third party (ex Bancor) or just wait for Sergey to release staking? Linkpool is too expensive right now, so I’m hoping for an alternative in the future - any news on this front?

Use Bancor for now and then switch to real staking once it's released.
Real staking will most likely have a higher APY.

The idea of not holding my keys on Bancor really scares me though. My thought process is like this: Whether I stake or not I’m still inevitably going to end up a multi-$millionaire, so is it really worth it to stake on Bancor for some pocket change? The risk is not worth it in my estimate

OG here.
This is going to be one of the hardest dumps on steaking and the project will basically fail because people will never use it for anything other than to PnD, which will completely fuck the tokenomics and make the whole thing useless. Sergey will realize this and just disappear along with the rest of the team. SWIFT and co will realize this, and begin to quietly remove any references they have to this embarrassing experiment which - who knows, might have succeeded if it wasn't for the retards who infest this place and run painfully obvious shill and fud campaigns. Many of you will experience the kind of hopium crash which actually kills people, and I suppose suicide is a fitting reward for some of the more smug retards who clutter up this board, but I hope it isn't all of you.

There will be no more memes, no more dreams of lambos or whatever NPC tier 'rich person's car' you've picked out in your imagination as you're left in the dirt holding a bunch of link bags. Even a fraction of the money some of you invested in link could have helped you make it during the next bull-run in a legitimate project. Imagine that. THAT is what you should be visualizing. Not your stupid fucking holiday home, not your imaginary future "faithful" gf / wife, nor an early retirement where you don't need to toil away at menial tasks for your betters from inside your 9-5 existential prison cell - you should instead be visualizing yourself scraping together what little money you have left in the wake of your devastation to try and ride something like BTC or ETH up, and your dream of MILLIONS OF DOLLARS suddenly becomes a much more realistic 10k-20k at most. I mean it's not bad - more than you intellectual runts probably deserve. You'll all see I was right. I always am.

I don't want to fud my own investment, but Sergey should consider the effect not supporting staking for a longer amount of time will have on the future use of his network.
As it stands having an older node which has been white listed by his team is more important than having a collateral.
If customers get used to it they may consider paying for nodes with a higher collateral a waste of money, because he proved that Chainlink could work for years without staking and a need for collateral.

But maybe he doesn't care about the type of customer who prefers to use a failed oracle instead of paying for a higher quality node.
The banks will have enough requirements to force them to use nodes with a collateral if they don't use a workaround and sign an offline contract with the node providers instead.

they can if Linklets don't compete.

lot of linklets park there link, interests on supply low. The ratio of whales borrowing link to supply also low, means low interest.

You are called Simeon and work for the scamming Nexo company:
You take the stacks of your clients to short Link and market dump it on Binance to try to cause the price to crash and buy back cheaper your stack.
Unfortunately people are buying the dip instead.
Let's make an article on Zeus capital explaining how our partner Sergey is scamming people with Chainlink!
Now put our customer's BTC as a collateral on AAVE to borrow a bigger Link stack and market dump it on binance.
Shit it's still not working!
Put all the BTC of our customers to obtain the remaining Link stack they have because if the short squeeze happen we will go bankrupt.
Better to risk exchanging the dumb peoples Link stack who put in on AAVE for BTC when it goes wrong than not being able to buy it on Binance.
It was a close cal, we just lost 30% of our client's funds and technically are bankrupt.
Luckily they will never find out until they get the idea to all withdraw their funds.
They care more for their interest rate than for their stack after all...

This. People don't understand that at first, the only "pure" link staking possibility for people to stake on nodes will be lp.

Not to mention I have a separate computer I use for crypto only and Celsius doesn't have a webpage yet not to mention I'd want them to have Yubikey compatibility as well.

celsius has no impermament loss risk though

>b-but bancor has insurance!
if LINK's price goes up rapidly, bancor tokens will be automatically printed by the millions to make up for the difference lost, increasing its supply. the traders will then want to sell their BNT/take their LINK away to avoid losses, driving BNT price even lower and requiring even more millions printed to keep up with LINK's price
