The Problem with Traditional staking

Traditional Staking presents barriers to the majority of people interested in becoming involved in Staking. Ankr removes these barriers to enable anybody to participate in staking opportunities.

1⃣ Capital Inefficiency

LOSS OF LIQUIDITY these funds are then locked until the current Ethereum mainnet merges with the beacon chain estimated to be in 2022. This loss of liquidity presents another barrier to staking.

HIGH CAPITAL REQUIREMENT TO ACCESS STAKING REWARDS Currently, a deposit contract to run a Validator node on the ETH2 beacon chain is 32 ETH. This is a big commitment of approximately $84,779 (as of August 1st 2021) and is a significant barrier to many crypto enthusiasts keen to run a node. Ankr solves this problem with Pooled Staking enabling individual participants to pool smaller amounts of crypto assets to collectively acquire the minimum required to run a node. LOCKED FUNDS Assets are providing security to the network and are locked for that purpose. Not being able to re-use the bonds.

2⃣ Technical Complexity

Serving as a validator is a technically complex and costly business demanding a high degree of expertise. There are high financial penalties - slashing - if an invalid transaction is wrongly validated or if a node goes offline.
