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.
Blox Staking Technology Overview
Introducing Blox Staking KeyVault – remote signer based on Hashicorp Vault, with a proprietary Plugin for signing functionalities and slashing protection written by Blox CEO Alon Muroch.
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.
Eth2 Staking: Infrastructure
While less infra intensive than mining, Eth2 will require infra and software requirements in order to become a validator and start staking.
ETH 2.0 & What You Need To Know
Ethereum will be transitioning from Proof of Work to Proof of Stake with the Eth2 Beacon Chain, validators and upcoming shard chains; presenting an new approach to secure the network and earn rewards.
