What is Kiln Connect?
Integrating new staking protocols is time-consuming and costly, requiring custom transactions, data infrastructure, and custodian API integrations. Kiln Connect abstracts this complexity away.
Kiln Connect includes the Transaction Crafting API for programmatically handling staking accounts and creating staking/unstaking transactions, and the Reporting API for real-time data monitoring, including rewards and validator performance, for you or your users.
Kiln Connect is validator-agnostic, so you can enjoy its benefits regardless of your chosen validators
Collect rewards & performance in data real time across chains and staking operators in a unified way
- Save your engineering team bandwidth
- Provide robust reporting to users
- Automate accounting and compliance
Transaction crafting API
Integrate each protocol's staking/unstaking transaction formats into one string of code

The Kiln team is available to discuss your requirements, and give you access to Kiln Connect.
To enhance the user experience for our M2 users, we utilize Kiln Connect in our backend for seamless creation of staking/unstaking transactions and real-time data monitoring. This enables our technical team to abstract the complexities associated with managing multiple blockchains, allowing us to successfully offer staking as part of our global earn program.
What is Kiln Connect?
The Reporting API, which provides real-time, all-time, all-network indexing of staking data across all major PoS chains. This API enables exchanges, custodians and market makers to collect and surface staking data for their customers and internal processes. The API is validator-agnostic, enabling you to standardise reporting and operations across staking operators and protocols without having to spend engineering resources on collecting and maintaining these data pipelines.
The Transaction Crafting API, which enables you to craft staking and unstaking transactions from all major PoS protocols using a single, unified API which supports all validator providers. This enables you to speed up the delivery of your staking product across several chains.
Both these APIs are RESTful, enabling you to call them from the language of your choice. We also provide JS and Python SDKs for convenience.
What are the protocols supported by Kiln Connect?
Kiln Connect supports all major PoS protocols, for the latest list of supported protocols across the Reporting and Transaction Crafting APIs, please refer to the dedicated page on our documentation site.
How quickly can I set up Kiln Connect?
You can get started querying the APIs in a few minutes once you have generated an API token from the Kiln Dashboard. Integrating into your application will take from a few days to a couple of weeks based on your requirements (custodian used, number of protocols, staking or reporting-only integration, etc).
