Rocket Pool is a decentralized Ethereum staking protocol that allows users to earn rewards by staking their ETH. It was initially launched for and on the Ethereum network, but now it’s active on the Arbitrum network too and Arb users can stake their ETH with its help.
There are different methods to gain benefits from staking your assets on Rocket Pool, but the thing that caught my attention was the fact that with RP’s help, stakers can actually run a validator node for Ethereum network using only 8 ETH instead of 32 ETH.
That’s a huge positive mark in my book for people who wish to participate in and help Ethereum’s ecosystem, but don’t have enough ETH to do so.
You can read about how to run a node using Rocket Pool on their website. It’s worth mentioning that Kenshi is also a project you can run nodes for and earn $KNS as your reward. We are currently (Dec 30, 2023) on testnet.
