  3. Choose your Ethereum wallet.
  4. View the wallet details, including:
    1. Total balance available for staking.
    2. Your current staking position in the staked section.

Step 2. Stake ETH

  1. In the staked section, click on the Stake option.
  2. Enter the amount of ETH you wish to stake.

❗️Keep in mind that you need a minimum of 32 ETH for ETH validators and to cover gas fees.

  1. Click Initiate Staking to start the transaction.

Step 3. Confirm Transaction

  1. Wait a while, and then you'll see a Sign Transaction option.
  2. To proceed, input your wallet password and provide your 2FA details.

💡 Notes

  • For validators, note that only a certain number can join the active set during each epoch. During times of high demand, you may encounter a queue.
  • If you wish to unstake, follow the same steps as staking, but click on the Unstake option this time.
