Staking Services

Introduction to the Staking Service

The Ethereum 2.0. Protocol allows its participants to create Validator Nodes by contributing 32 Tokens in order to obtain rewards.

Due to the high costs involved in deploying a Validator Node, the same protocol allows small contributions from different Participants in the same Validator Node.

 

Operation of the Staking Service

Having stated the above, Criptan will deploy different Validator Nodes according to the number of Participants and the Delegated Tokens they contribute.

The Tokens provided by the Participants will be assigned to the Validator Node available on the Start Date, and it will not be possible for the Participant to choose which of the Validator Nodes deployed by Criptan his/her Tokens will be assigned to.

In order for all Participants to obtain the same percentage of Participation Rewards, the profitability of the different Validator Nodes will be averaged among the total number of Participants.

 

Risks Inherent in the Staking Services

The Participant acknowledges that it is possible that, due to the early stage of development of the Ethereum 2.0. Protocol, system failures not attributable to Criptan may occur, resulting in the loss of the Staking Rewards or even the totality of the Tokens contributed.
