CoinDCX Set To Support ETH 2.0 Staking Ahead Of Ethereum 2.0 Launch

CoinDCX, one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in India, is preparing its platform to support ETH 2.0 staking in anticipation of Ethereum 2.0 launch.

As the first phase of Ethereum 2.0 is expected to come on Dec. 1, CoinDCX is now “all set” to introduce ETH 2.0 staking for the global crypto community, the exchange’s executives announced on Nov. 10.

According to the announcement, CoinDCX’s smart contract-based solution will enable users to stake ETH with less than 32 Ether (ETH) — a minimum amount required to participate in ETH 2.0 staking. A spokesperson for CoinDCX told Cointelegraph that the contract will allow users to stake ETH as low as 0.1 ETH up to 1,000 ETH in a single transaction.

The representative emphasized that CoinDCX’s solution allows users to pool any amount in a single transaction, stating:

“ETH 2.0 requires users to hold 32 ETH in order to create validators and participate in staking. This would prevent small time investors from participating in staking. Also, if a user wants to invest more than 32 ETH it is most effective to run multiple validator nodes, adding on to the complexity.”

The new staking option will be coming to CoinDCX in two phases. As part of the first phase, CoinDCX users will be able to start staking their ETH to the platform as early as “next week,” a representative of CoinDCX said. The phase two — that is expected to make the staked funds illiquid for at least a year — is planned to go live a few weeks after the ETH 2.0 staking goes live, the spokesperson added.
