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: Interest & Rewards

Eth2 enables anyone to stake and earn rewards. How much is earned will depend on the staking setup, validator performance, and how many active actors there are on the network.

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.
