According to the announcement, the new staking-as-a-service offering will be tailored with institutional functionality for exchanges, custodians, funds, wallets and other potential customers. Features will include direct API integration and white-labeled UI that can be integrated into partner platforms.
The first batch of participants in the pilot program consists of Binance, Crypto.com, DARMA Capital, Huobi Wallet, Matrixport and Trustology.
The companies will reportedly provide feedback on the service and “gain a deeper understanding of Ethereum 2.0 and have the opportunity to be first to market in providing their customers with Ethereum 2.0 staking capabilities,” according to ConsenSys.
