Ethereum 2.0

Liquidity Police

As the Eth2 ecosystem rapidly grows, pooled solutions are added every day. Here we discuss the dangers of derivative ETH implemented in many staking pools.

Will Ethereum Validators Become the New Miners?

As Ethereum transitions to Eth2 and staking on the Beacon Chain, what happens to the network’s miners and will they be replaced with validators? Is it profitable to be a validator rather than a miner?

Running a Validator for the Greater Good of Ethereum

Staking isn’t only about earning ETH rewards but it’s also about the positive impact it will have on the Ethereum ecosystem – helping the network efficiently and securely scale for years to come.

Understanding Eth2 Slashing & Preventative Measures

Slashing may occur to a validator that partakes in a malicious event, intentionally or unintentionally. A slashed validator has the potential to lose all of their ETH at stake. In this post, we will outline how to avoid getting slashed.

Securing your Validator

In this post, we will take a look at the type of keys generated in Eth2, their inherent security vulnerabilities, and the different ways to secure them in a multi-user staking environment.

Centralized Versus Decentralized Staking Services

Decentralized Staking or Non-Custodial Staking allows users to stake with no key sharing. Centralized, Semi-Custodial, or Custodial staking services retain custody over user private keys in a multitude of ways.

Blox Basics: What is Proof of Stake

Proof of Stake (PoS) is the consensus mechanism behind Eth2 which enables validators to stake and which will allow the network to efficiently scale.

Comparing Eth1 & Eth2

In with Proof of Stake, out with Proof of Work. Eth2 is a significantly improved Ethereum upgrade, introducing validators and ETH staking and set to increase network scalability, security, speed, and energy efficiency.
