About Launchnodes

Our mission is to make Solo Staking and independent access to blockchain data easy, without a third party dependency – and that includes Launchnodes.

We provide self-serve options and support for non-technical Stakers. Helping those building at scale as well as delivering end-to-end managed services and consultancy, for clients who are looking for specific support and financial outcomes.

Launchnodes’ services are designed to be easy, scalable and secure, leveraging public cloud.

What we do

We do nodes. Geth Nodes, Beacon Nodes, Validator nodes for staking Ethereum and RPC nodes building dApps and getting data. We do nodes for public blockchains and we do nodes for private blockchains. Nodes that run on public cloud and nodes that run on bare metal.

Nodes are gateways for earning staking rewards and accessing data and we make owning and running nodes easy.

How we do it

By putting our customers first. Giving them a choice of how much or little technical support they need to become a Solo Staker. Allowing customers to choose the infrastructure they run Ethereum and other blockchain nodes on.

In a rapidly changing ecosystem, we provide businesses with bespoke services to build staking, DeFi and data products that use nodes and public and private blockchains.

Impact Staking

Launchnodes has always believed that Ethereum staking returns can be used as a long-term financing tool to fund positive outcomes related to climate change, inequality and new infrastructure.

Our model for Impact staking is about building an ecosystem of partners and open source experiments that use staking returns to drive social impact and share the data related to that impact.

Learn about how we are using staking returns to fund internet connectivity in developing countries, schools, and software used in maternity wards in refugee camps.

Please reach out if you want to be part of the ecosystem and build out ideas using our learnings and data.

ETH Ownership
?
“Not your keys, not your Ether.” We don’t ever take ownership of your ETH, you stay in control of your keys and your ETH at all times.

Non-custodial, Decentralised. As a Solo Staker you keep and manage your ETH and keys

Custodial: your ETH is blended with other people’s ETH, as part of a staking pool. You don’t have direct access to your wallet keys and ETH

Centralised: а staking server is set up for you on a virtual server

Centralised: typically you trade your ETH for a synthetic token issued by the provider, your ETH is pooled with other stakers’ funds, and your returns are in the synthetic token

Location of nodes
?
If you plan to have several nodes, the option of distributing these geographically can be helpful. You can also ensure that your nodes are in the best location from a regulatory and risk perspective.

Specialise in
Ethereum staking?
?
Some companies offer hundreds of different alt coins to stake. Choosing a company that specialises in Ethereum means that you will have dedicated focus from a team with deep Ethereum knowledge and expertise, the latest software updates and the highest levels of technical support and flexibility.
Architectural Choice
?
With some providers, there is a ‘one size fits all’ approach, with few options to customize or streamline your configuration to maximise uptime, security and rewards. Making sure that your provider is happy to share details of their technical environment and staking infrastructure – and can provide options to suit your needs, is key.
Provider of Beacon
Nodes
?
Very few providers offer Ethereum Beacon nodes as a service. Beacon nodes are a core component in staking Ethereum, and providers who offer and optimise dedicated Beacon nodes for their clients can offer higher levels of service and security.
Node Runs in Your
Own Environment?
?
How much control and visibility do you have of your Ethereum staking environment? Running Ethereum staking in a secure, robust environment that you have ownership of is the pinnacle in security and control.

Your ETH staking nodes run in your own, secure public cloud or bare metal environment, controlled by you

Uptime
?
Missing opportunities to stake due to technical problems, and slashing events due to poor configuration or setup issues are the primary causes of reduced ETH rewards in staking. Look for the highest levels of uptime and robustness in a provider.
