Ethereum validators FAQ
Ethereum validators, also called staking validators, are effectively block-validation machines that contribute to the running of the Ethereum network.
Each validator must deposit a minimum required stake in Ether in order to be activated on the Ethereum mainnet and must comply with the network’s availability and security requirements to avoid penalties.
To activate a validator (or to “be” a validator), you need a minimum of 32 ETH. If you don’t have a minimum stake, you can use a liquid staking solution such as StakeWise or Ether.fi.
The Ethereum network has set a limit of 32 ETH as a minimum deposit required to run a staking validator. This has been in place since the launch of the Beacon Chain in December 2020 and it serves to encourage responsible engagement with the network by requiring capital lock-up.
The Ethereum network uses a Proof of Stake consensus mechanism, whereby validators are the network participants responsible for validating the new blocks that get added to the Ethereum blockchain.
To validate a new block, staking validators (sometimes also known as staking nodes) must perform a verification of the transactions inside the block and of the block signature, after which they broadcast their confirmation to the network (the “attestation”).
According to data from Beaconscan, there are currently more than half a million active Ethereum validators, which are producing roughly between 750,000 and 800,00 attestations per day.
Distributed validator technology (DVT) enables the decentralized running of nodes among multiple parties. DVT improves redundancy, minimizes slashing risks, and opens up participation to staking for both solo stakers and institutional operators.
MEV-boost is a type of middleware that enables validators to get access to the block-building market. MEV increases rewards by as much as 25% for stakers and makes up about 15% of the total economy of Ethereum.
