Bitcoin Suisse expects to offer Ethereum staking before Christmas

service provider Suisse expects to offer its Ethererum staking services before Christmas, underscoring the firm’s expectations of an imminent launch of Ethereum 2.0.

In a statement released Wednesday via Trustnodes, Bitcoin Suisse said:

The firm intends to offer the staking service from the first day that Ethereum 2.0 is live:

Bitcoin Suisse was founded in 2013, making it one of the first crypto-focused financial service providers.

The Ethereum 2.0 deposit contract is open, which means anyone who wants to become a validator can deposit their minimum stake of 32 Ether (ETH). As of Wednesday, the deposit contract had over 101,700 ETH deposits valued at nearly $48.2 million.

The first stage of ETH 2.0 is expected to launch Dec. 1, according to an Ethereum Foundation blog post from earlier this month. Developers have set a minimum total staking threshold of 524,288 ETH as the trigger for the mainnet. The target must be met at least seven days beforehand, so by Nov. 24.

At the current rate, it appears unlikely that enough ETH will be staked to ensure a successful launch by Dec. 1. However, that could quickly change as the cutoff date nears. As ConsenSys engineer Ben Edgington recently told Cointelegraph:

As a crypto custodian, Bitcoin Suisse lets investors participate in Ethereum staking without having to meet the minimum 32 ETH threshold. Svante Jorgensen, a blockchain engineer at the firm, told Trustnodes earlier this year that Bitcoin Suisse offers “no lower limit on staking size.”
