Last month marked the addition of Litecoin to Wanchain decentralised cross-chain infrastructure. This integration is the latest milestone in what has been an incredible productive half-year for the Wanchain team. On the eve of the selection of the eighth Storeman Group, Wanchain’s industry-leading cross-chain infrastructure already supports truly decentralised bridges connecting Bitcoin, Ethereum, Wanchain, EOSIO, Binance Smart Chain, XRP Ledger and Litecoin… with more integrations right around the corner! Interoperable DeFi is no longer just a light at the end of the tunnel. It is already here.
The eighth selection cycle begin on July 1st, 2021.

How to create a Storeman node
The yield of running a Storeman node is generally 50% higher than becoming a delegator. There are two basic requirements to running a Storeman node:
- WAN tokens. A minimum of 10,000 WAN must be staked in order to run a Storeman node. The 24 Storeman nodes with the largest total stakes will be selected. Your node’s total stake is the sum of your own WAN tokens, and tokens staked via “Partner-In” and tokens staked by your delegates.
- A cloud service on AWS, Google Cloud or equivalent to deploy your Storeman node.
For the detailed operations of how to set up a Storeman, please go to Wanchain 5.0 Mainnet Storeman Setup Guide.
Note: If you are currently operating a Storeman node and do not wish to participate in the next Storeman Group selection, please be sure to withdraw your node using the Wanchain Wallet before June 30, 2021 at 07:00 AM UTC. Your staked funds will automatically be returned to your wallet on July 10th, 2021. Node rewards will continue to be issued daily during this withdrawal period. All nodes that are not successfully withdrawn prior to the start of the next selection period will be eligible for selection.
