What does Rocket Pool do?

Rocket Pool is a first of its kind decentralised staking network for Ethereum. An excellent guide to Rocket Pool for new users can be found in our FAQ 101 guide here

It has several objectives within the Ethereum landscape, each relevant to a different audience. It aims to:

  1. Provide a network of decentralised nodes to perform proof of stake validation services for the Ethereum network;
  2. Allow users who don’t possess the minimum Ether required to become a validator, or the necessary technical skills to run a validation node, to participate in staking and earn rewards;
  3. Allow users and businesses to run a validation node for ETH2 with only 16 ETH in the Rocket Pool network to earn rewards and additional income;
  4. Provide any third party businesses with seamless staking services for their users via the free to access and use Rocket Pool API.
