Non-Custodial Staking

Skylabs staking is non-custodial, which means no individual or governing team can access or interfere with staked VSL in the contract. This is different from ‘custodial staking’ where one’s staked cryptocurrency can be used for high-risk investment schemes and be lost, or where withdrawals can be restricted by governing teams outside of the terms that stakers believed they were agreeing to. That cannot happen here. At Skylabs all staking is strictly negotiated between the staker and the smart contract with no possibility of interference (see CertiK audit).
