Ethereum Validators Near 400,000 as Amount of ETH Staked Surpasses 12.8 Million

Several milestones have been reached ahead of Ethereum’s full transition to proof of stake. The amount of Ethereum staked has been steadily increasing, and it now stands at 12,864,311 ETH.

Given that becoming a node validator costs 32 ETH, the number of validator nodes operating on the Ethereum network has increased and continues to do so as new nodes are added. The network’s total number of validator nodes has now reached 383,637. A validator is a participant in the consensus of the Ethereum protocol.

In the ongoing transition, the Ethereum Foundation stated in January that the Eth 2.0 branding did not accurately reflect what was going on with the network during its round of updates. It went on to say that “ETH 2.0” and the nomenclature used to distinguish the proof-of-stake chain from the proof-of-work chain may soon be phased out.

Ethereum staking yields to double

As reported by U.Today, Ethereum staking yields are projected to gradually rise or even double following the integration of Ethereum mainnet and Beacon Chain. This implies that staking yields may grow from 4.3-5.4% APR to 9-12% APR around June of this year.

Coinbase anticipates an increase in staking yields following the complete merger of the two chains, as rewards will now include fees that are presently paid to miners. The profitability of staking contracts will eventually rise as more rewards are delivered to validators.

Ethereum is currently trading at $2,034.91 and is up around 6% in the last 24 hours, as per CoinMarketCap data.
