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
Recommended Gas Limits
The Staking API Post Stake Intent endpoint allows you to stake to 250 validators using our audited batch deposit contract.
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 rounded up for convenience, you only pay 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.
