Description

Rocket Pool is live on mainnet! Slowly rolling out its staking pools, Rocket Pool is opening up its decentralized ETH staking product to the world. Core team members Darren Langley and Dave Rugendyke join to talk about the past, present, and future of the protocol.

Rocket Pool allows ETH holders to stake without needing to run a full node, which requires hardware, maintenance, and 32 ETH. Abstracting away those requirements helps to decentralize Ethereum's Proof-of-Stake, which is expected to arrive with the merge in the first half of 2022.
