CRYPTO NEWS: ETHEREUM STAKING BECOMES MORE POPULAR.

AS ETHEREUM STAKING BECOMES MORE POPULAR, YIELDS REMAIN LIMITED. ETHEREUM STAKING SEEMS TO BE THE NEW PREFERRED METHOD FOR CRYPTOCURRENCY TRADERS TO OBTAIN YIELD; IN FACT, IT IS SO WELL-LIKED THAT IT IS LOWERING YIELDS.

THAT RESULTS FROM THE “PROOF-OF-STAKE” MODEL’S YIELD CALCULATION FORMULA, WHICH WAS IMPLEMENTED A MONTH AGO ON THE ETHEREUM BLOCKCHAIN: THE REWARDS FOR STAKING ARE GIVEN IN ETHER (ETH), WHICH IS THE CRYPTOCURRENCY THAT RUNS ON THE ETHEREUM BLOCKCHAIN. 

ADDITIONALLY, ALL ACCOUNTS THAT ARE STAKING RECEIVE A PORTION OF THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF ETHER AVAILABLE FOR STAKING. THEREFORE, THE PERCENTAGE THAT IS AVAILABLE TO EACH STAKER DECREASES AS MORE ETHER IS SENT TO THE BLOCKCHAIN FOR STAKING.

THE STAKING YIELD POST-MERGE APPEARS TO BE BETWEEN 4% AND 5%, ACCORDING TO COINBASE INSTITUTIONAL, SIGNIFICANTLY LESS THAN THE 9% TO 12% THAT THE ANALYSTS HAD ORIGINALLY PREDICTED.

CRYPTO ANALYSTS CLAIM THAT ONE ISSUE AT THE MOMENT IS THAT INVESTORS ARE STUCK IN THE PROTOCOL EVEN AS THE STAKING YIELDS CONTINUE TO DECLINE BECAUSE THEY ARE UNABLE TO IMMEDIATELY WITHDRAW THEIR ETHER. 

UNTIL ETHEREUM’S UPCOMING SIGNIFICANT UPGRADE, “SHANGHAI,” WHICH IS ANTICIPATED TO TAKE PLACE IN 2023, THE WITHDRAWAL OPTION WON’T ACTUALLY BE ACCESSIBLE.

NICK HOTZ, VICE PRESIDENT OF RESEARCH AT THE COMPANY THAT MANAGES DIGITAL ASSETS KNOWN AS ARCA FUNDS, STATED THAT “YOU CAN ONLY PUT STAKE IN BUT CAN’T TAKE STAKE OUT.”

THE ETHEREUM STAKING YIELD ISN’T “RESPONSIVE,” IN CONTRAST TO TRADITIONAL BOND MARKETS WHERE YIELDS CAN CHANGE BASED ON SUPPLY AND DEMAND.

“FUTURE REPERCUSSIONS OF THAT WILL BE FELT, AND IT RESEMBLES A BOND MARKET MUCH MORE IN THAT MORE INTEREST IS GENERATED THE MORE THE ECONOMY IS BOOMING.” HOTZ SAID.

MORE THAN 14 MILLION ETHER (ETH), WORTH OVER $2 BILLION, ARE CURRENTLY BEING STAKED ON THE ETHEREUM BLOCKCHAIN, ACCORDING TO DATA FROM DUNE ANALYTICS. A SURGE IN DEPOSITS OCCURRED DURING THE THIRD QUARTER, WHEN THE MERGE, OR TRANSITION TO THE PROOF-OF-STAKE MODEL, WENT INTO EFFECT. 

SINCE THE END OF THE SECOND QUARTER, THE AMOUNT OF ETHER STAKED HAS INCREASED BY 7.5%. THE MERGE WAS DESIGNED TO IMPROVE THE ETHEREUM BLOCKCHAIN’S PREVIOUS “PROOF-OF-WORK” MODEL, WHICH IS ALSO THE SAME SYSTEM USED BY THE BITCOIN BLOCKCHAIN.

THE BLOCKCHAIN’S SECURITY, ENSURING THAT TRANSACTIONS GO THROUGH AS INTENDED AND THAT THE CRYPTOCURRENCY IS SECURE, IS PROVIDED BY “VALIDATORS” WHO STAKE THEIR ETHER AS A SORT OF ASSURANCE UNDER THE PROOF-OF-STAKE SYSTEM.

A MINIMUM OF 32 ETH (APPROXIMATELY $50,600 WORTH) MUST BE LOCKED UP ON THE BLOCKCHAIN IN ORDER TO BECOME A VALIDATOR OR STAKER. HOWEVER, AS MORE ETH IS DEPOSITED AND MORE STAKERS POUR IN, THE YIELD BECOMES MORE EVENLY DISTRIBUTED.

ACCORDING TO HOTZ, THE STAKING YIELD FOR ETHEREUM IS TYPICALLY INFLUENCED BY FOUR FACTORS: THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF ETH ISSUED, THE NUMBER OF TRANSACTIONS ETHEREUM PROCESSES EACH DAY, THE BURNING RATE, AND THE AMOUNT OF ETH BEING STAKED.

IN FACT, THERE IS A FORMULA. THE ANNUALIZED STAKING YIELD IS: [ANNUAL GROSS ETH ISSUANCE + ANNUAL FEES * (1-% OF FEES BURNED)]/AVERAGE ETH STAKED OVER THE YEAR.

THE AMOUNT OF ETHER STAKED IS INCLUDED IN THE FRACTION’S DENOMINATOR, TO PUT IT ANOTHER WAY. AS A RESULT, THE YIELD DECREASES AS THE NUMBER INCREASES.

PRESENTLY, THE YIELD ON THE 10-YEAR U.S. TREASURY NOTE, WHICH TOPPED 4.2% THIS YEAR AND HIT ITS HIGHEST LEVEL SINCE 2008, AND THE YIELD ON ETHEREUM STAKING ARE ROUGHLY EQUAL.

STAKERS APPEAR CONTENT TO EARN ABOUT THE SAME YIELD BY INVESTING IN THE ETHEREUM BLOCKCHAIN AS THEY ARE BY BUYING TRIPLE-A RATED US GOVERNMENT BONDS, WHICH ARE AMONG THE SAFEST INVESTMENTS IN THE WORLD, ACCORDING TO THE STUDY’S FINDINGS.

MARKET ANALYST AT BESTBROKERS ALAN GOLDBERG ASSERTS THAT THE RISE IN STAKES IS “A SIGN THAT TRADERS FIND IT A RELIABLE ALTERNATIVE TO THE TRADITIONAL MARKETS.”

DEPOSITING MONEY FOR A YEAR WITHOUT HAVING ACCESS TO IT IS A RISKY MOVE, ESPECIALLY IF THE MONEY IS IN CRYPTOCURRENCY, ACCORDING TO GOLDBERG. BUT TRADERS STILL PLACE BETS… JUST GOES TO SHOW HOW MANY TRADERS FEEL SECURE USING ETHEREUM.
