% Rewards you keep

We believe you deserve to keep all of the rewards from your staking operations. It’s your money after all. Some companies charge a hefty 20% - or over $1,500 per year, we don’t take a penny.

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. 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.

Security Infrastructure

Setting up an ETH 2.0 Validator node involves trusting a server, and a network, with over $100,000 of digital assets. Confidence that the network and servers are secure, is absolutely crucial. With Launchnodes services deployed in your own AWS environment, you have complete ownership and transparency.

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 staking nodes run in your own, secure AWS environment, controlled by you

Infrastructure 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.
