✅ EasyStaking enabled on BitMax

Easy Staking launched on Wednesday, August 5. BitMax has now incorporated EasyStaking as their staking application, adding a large chunk of STAKE to the contract. If you were already staking with the pre-staking program, you don't need to do anything, your STAKE will automatically be transferred to EasyStaking (without paying gas fees to stake)
