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.
