ETH2 Staking Now Available on Abra!

Abra now supports ETH2 staking directly in our app! You’ll need to update your Abra app to access ETH2 staking. Read this blog post to understand more about Ethereum’s transition to Proof of Stake and how you can generate ETH2 staking rewards by staking on Abra.

What Is ETH2?

ETH2 — also known as Ethereum 2.0 — is intended to be a significant upgrade to the Ethereum blockchain network that consists of sequential phases which will culminate in the transition from Proof of Work (PoW) to Proof of Stake (PoS). Numerous large blockchain networks such as Cardano, Solana, and Avalanche already use the PoS consensus mechanism.

Ethereum’s move to PoS aims to improve transaction efficiency, which will result in faster processing times, lower gas fees, and greater security.

PoS allows any user to become an ETH2 validator, known as a staker, on the Ethereum network. By staking ETH2, stakers commit funds that help secure the network and ensure that only legitimate transactions are validated. In return for helping to secure the Ethereum network, stakers generate staking rewards in the form of ETH2. The more ETH2  a staker commits, the more ETH2 they receive as staking rewards.

Staking ETH on Abra — What to Know

ETH2 staking is accessible in the Abra app (shown as APR). In the app, users can stake their ETH into ETH2 to start accruing staking rewards. It’s important to note that ETH2 deposits have a lock-up period.

Once ETH2 is staked, it’s locked into staking and will remain staked for an indefinite period of time until the Ethereum 2.0 upgrade is complete and Abra enables withdrawals. The merge between Ethereum 1.0 and Ethereum 2.0 networks is expected to occur in 2022.

Note: There is no minimum amount of ETH required to begin staking.
