The developers of MyEtherWallet, one of the most popular purses of Etherium, added access to ETH 2.0 steaking through the Staked service.
As part of a partnership with the Staked node hosting service, MyEtherWallet offers wallet users the ability to block ETH for stealing in the Ethereum 2.0 Beacon Chain deposit contract. MyEtherWallet CEO Kosala Hemachandra said:
“Users must MyEtherWallet block 32 ETH for stealing to participate in Ethereum 2.0. Staked will launch a validator node for them, which will simplify the participation of users who do not have technical knowledge, so no additional action on their part will be required. “
Hemachandra added that users will MyEtherWallet receive validator rewards in ETH, but these rewards cannot be withdrawn at least “before phase 2 is rolled out for about two years.”
Staked is a service based on the concept of “validator as a service,” where users pay to manage the node. Bits.media spoke about the different possibilities of stealing in the corresponding article. ETH 2.0 stealing support was also previously announced by Binance and Coinbase exchanges.
