If This New Tech Works, You Won’t Need 32 Ether to Earn Staking Rewards

Blox, a non-custodial Ethereum 2.0 staking platform, is developing a solution that will allow users to pool their ether (ETH) cryptocurrency to get past the threshold required for staking when the upgraded network goes live.

  • The cryptocurrency accounting service provider announced on Wednesday that it is working alongside the Ethereum Foundation to develop “secret shared validator” nodes.
  • By creating a network of decentralized staking pools, Blox said it would allow users to aggregate their ETH and reach the required 32 ETH to stake on the network.
  • “Allowing ETH stakers to join the network and generate rewards with any amount of ETH is pivotal for making Eth 2.0 accessible for everyone,” said Blox’s CEO Alon Muroch.

Lower levels of access to traditional banking and financial services developing economies had created demand for services now offered by big tech firms, the report found, particularly among low-income populations and in rural areas.

An increasing availability of mobile phones and internet access supported this trend, the FSB said.

“However the expansion of BigTech activity also gives rise to risks and vulnerabilities,” it said, pointing to lower financial literacy and firms using other data gathered.
