With decentralized finance on a growth spree, Ethereum has attracted a lot of attention from mainstream companies in recent times.
Ether Capital Corporation, a high-value publicly-traded company, has announced an initial commitment to staking on Ethereum 2.0 network.
Ether Capital Announced Ethereum 2.0 Staking
The Ethereum 2.0 beacon chain was launched yesterday, giving a major boost to the decentralized finance space. Ascertaining the latent potential and successful run of ETH 2.0 Blockchain, Ether Capital announced the participation on the 2.0 network with a validator node on the Eth 2.0 Network.
As per the press release, Ether Capital confirmed that it is running a validator on the Ethereum 2.0 genesis block. With Ethereum announcing the move to the “Proof of Stake” protocol from the ‘Proof of Work; protocol, the company has started to participate in the same with staking. In; Proof of Staking, the validators can participate in voting by staking their Ethereum 2.0 and earning inflationary block rewards after they verify the transactions.
To be eligible for staking in the Proof of Stake, the holders must send at least 32 Ether from the Ethereum Blockchain to the new Ethereum 2.0 Blockchain. Ether started running one validator bonded with 32 Ether deposits.
The CEO of the company, Brian Mosoff, noted that the company is thrilled to be part of the historic Ethereum 2.0 launch by running a validator. The transition to staking has been part of Ether Capital’s roadmap since inception, and it implies that Ether holders are now able to generate an Ether-denominated return, or yield, by participating in-network validation.”
He further added that the company would make a more substantial commitment of its Ether balance to staking in the future as Ethereum 2.0 runs more stably.
More Publicly Traded Companies To Join Ethereum
As Ethereum protocol gains more stability and evolves over time, many publicly traded companies would join the bandwagon.
As Ethereum 2.0 launches staking, it would substantially be more like a capital asset like bonds and equities. While Ethereum would have no default, risk associated with it, and guarantees to pay the stakes, the ETH would be a more profitable alternative for holders.
Decentralized finance space is growing substantially, helping the institutions and traders gain massive profits and overcome the limitations of centralized systems; more large scale companies would participate in Ethereum Staking to gain long-lasting advantages.
