Sygnum’s clients will be able to stake from their existing wallets to earn the 7% per annum reward. According to the Bank, the staking service is fully integrated with its banking platform and has a simple, user-friendly setup. The staked funds are held individually in each client’s account.
Ethereum has been working to improve its technology allowing increasing activities on its network at a far less cost. This requires a migration from its current consensus protocol Proof of Work (POW) to Proof of Stake (POS) which will allow Ethereum to process transaction faster and cheaper. The migration from POS has been in the works for the years past and is getting implemented in phases. It is expected to be completed in coming months.
