When launching new Ethereum validators, using the batched transactions with the Staking API saves time and gas compared to the official deposit contract.
You can save over 50% on gas usage when launching 250 validators with Blockdaemon.
We recommend you use the following gas limits when staking ETH with the Staking API:
|# of validators to launch via Blockdaemon API||Recommended setting for gas limit (in GWEI)|
Note: Recommended gas limit contains buffer and is rounded up for convenience; you only pay for actual gas used.
Note: gas used varies slightly due to different parameters at execution time, and the USD price to launch validators depends on the gas price and ETH/USD value.
