Ethereum FAQ

Proof-of-stake (PoS) replaces the proof-of-work with validators and stake on Ethereum 2.0. As with most PoS networks, each validator will get rewarded with staking rewards and transaction fees involved in verifying and attesting blocks. The transition to Ethereum 2.0 will require potential validators to stake 32 ETH on the network to be eligible for selection.

Learn more about the Ethereum 2.0 upgrades to see how staking can address your needs and earn you rewards.

32 ETH (plus a little bit extra for gas fees) as well as a dedicated validator (that BloqStake can provide) is required to start staking on the Ethereum network. Please contact us for spinning up a validator.

If a validator double-signs or becomes offline, staking rewards may be “slashed” as a result of misbehavior. Learn more about ETH slashing and how Bloq’s infrastructure helps to protect your staked tokens from penalties.

Bloq infrastructure is non-custodial and allows you to stake your ETH while retaining control. At no point does Bloq hold your private keys nor will Bloq have access to withdraw the staked ETH.

The staked ETH is held in a smart contract at the protocol level and only the holder of the mnemonic/withdrawal key will be able to access the ETH at a future point in time.

Staked ETH will remain in the Ethereum network until a future date (to be announced by the Ethereum Foundation). All staked ETH has an unbonding period of 1 day to 3 weeks. Withdrawals have not been enabled at the protocol level yet but will be enabled at a future date.

To stake ETH through the Bloq API, visit the official Bloq documentation to get started.
