Staking Mechanics

Stake Together operates based on the Ethereum network's Proof of Stake (PoS) mechanism, a process that involves the active participation of validators in maintaining the network. Below, we detail how this mechanic works:

  1. Proof of Stake (PoS) on Ethereum: In PoS, validators play a crucial role in the security and operation of the Ethereum network. They do this by staking Ethereum (ETH), thus acting as guarantors of the veracity and security of transactions and blocks on the network.

  2. Staking Requirement for Validators: To become a validator on the Ethereum network, you need to stake 32 ETH. This amount of ETH is blocked as a form of guarantee of the validator's commitment and responsibility to the network.

  3. Registration on the Beacon Chain: By staking 32 ETH, a participant becomes a validator on the Ethereum Beacon Chain. The Beacon Chain is a central piece in Ethereum's architecture, coordinating the validator system and ensuring the security of the network.

  4. Operator Role: In the staking process, an operator (which can be a computer or a group of computers) is necessary to perform calculations and contribute to the attestation and proposition of blocks, thus maintaining the validator's continuous activity.

  5. Staking Rewards: As a validator, when you actively contribute to the network, rewards are generated. These rewards are distributed based on staking activity and contributions to network security and efficiency, encouraging the maintenance of a robust ecosystem.

  6. Staking Through Stake Together: Stake Together allows individuals who do not own 32 ETH to complete the staking requirement by pooling their resources. The protocol facilitates validator management and the staking process, making participation more accessible and simplified for users.

Using Stake Together, users can contribute to the security and efficiency of the Ethereum network while receiving rewards for their engagement and support of the ecosystem. This system not only benefits stakers, but also strengthens the entire Ethereum network, promoting a more secure and decentralized environment.
