Total Ethereum Staked Grows by 18% to Surpass 13M Eth


July 25, 2022 ( Newswire) Ethereum stakers continue to increase their stake in the network. According to a study by BanklessTimes, the number of Ether staked on Ethereum's Eth 2.0 staking contract has surpassed 13 million, increasing by 18% in Q2. This is relevant to BanklessTimes because the Ethereum network is preparing to upgrade to a proof-of-stake consensus model, which will see Ether tokens used to secure the network and confirm transactions.

Under the current proof-of-work consensus model, Ethereum is kept secure by miners who confirm transactions and include them in the blocks. However, validators will verify transactions and include them in the blocks under the new POS model.

The total number of coins staked on Eth 2.0 has now topped the milestone - which is roughly 10.9 percent of the entire Eth supply - with 406,409 unique validators tapping their tokens. These are the most outstanding figures since a consensus vote to start staking was passed in November 2020.

The staking program was oversubscribed by over 400% days before the launch, with a 4.25 percent yearly yield. This proves that many investors think ETH will complement BTC's use cases as pure collateral and store value once the Merge is completed. According to data from staking rewards, stakers are presently earning 4.25 percent in annual yields.

Growing Ethereum Staking

BanklessTimes CEO Jonathan Merry said, "Since the introduction of Ethereum 2.0, interest in staking ether has exploded. Stakers have already received over $1 billion in bonuses. The network is valued at approximately $13 billion because of all the ETH that has been locked using staking. This demonstrates a strong level of confidence in the long-term viability of Ethereum among its users."
