Download the Ethereum 2.0 Staking Ecosystem Report

The launch of Ethereum 2.0 this year requires ETH holders to voluntarily stake their funds to ensure the continuation of the network. ConsenSys Codefi surveyed ETH holders from across the ecosystem to understand their motivations, preferences, concerns, and pain points when it comes to staking on Ethereum 2.0.

This report is a collection and analysis of the feedback provided by survey respondents to better inform ecosystem participants, clients, and staking providers as they prepare for Ethereum 2.0. The report includes:

  • Data-driven breakdown of ETH holder staking preferences, including running proprietary validators, using a third party, and more.
  • The motivations behind ETH holders’s decisions to (not) stake on Ethereum 2.0.
  • Features ETH holders expect and/or would prefer to be offered by client and third party services.
  • Discussion of major recommendations, including: incentives, education, accessibility, security, and more.
