RewardsStaking rewards are generated every epoch (approximately 6.4 minutes)
Lock-up periodStaked ETH will be locked up until at least the merge (also known as the docking) of the Ethereum Beacon Chain with Ethereum 1.0 happens. It is estimated that the merge will happen during the second quarter of 2022 and that withdrawals will be enabled then, but there is no exact date set yet.
CompoundingWhen staking ETH directly, the reward compounding process is manual and will only be possible after withdrawals are enabled.
Slashing riskEthereum has implemented a slashing mechanism in case the validator misbehaves: - Double proposal - Double attestation - Voting conflicts with historical voting
Staking is currently available on Ethereum Beacon Chain, the first Ethereum 2.0 upgrade, which is estimated to merge with Ethereum around Q2 2022. ETH2 is Ethereum’s upgrade from Proof-of-Work to Proof-of-Stake. In order to stake on the Beacon Chain, ETH investors will need to generate deposit and withdrawal keys and lock up increments of 32 ETH deposits. Deposits into validators take place through the ETH2 deposit contract. Stakin has a fully non-custodial service. You will need to generate your own withdrawal keys in order to access the staked ETH and staking rewards once the merge happens and withdrawals are enabled. Stakin only offers ETH staking for institutional investors and large token holders for the moment. We have a dedicated team to guide you towards the process, benefits and risks of staking ETH. For more information, please reach out to email@example.com so that we can assist you. For individual token holders, Stakin partners with liquid staking providers such as Lido Finance as a node operator. Lido Finance offers liquid staked ETH (stETH) with no minimum investment. Liquid staking has many benefits too. For more information about Lido, please have a look at their website and blog.
