- The next phase of Ethereum 2.0 is expected to be introduced this year
- The launch could possibly skyrocket the crypto staking sector
- Staking in cryptos can help earn more than S&P 500
- Tokens staked in Ethereum 2.0 is way less than DOT and SOL
This year would be a great year for investors staking in cryptos, as soon staking will have a significant impact. The aforementioned statement came after observing $20 billion distributed as an annual staking reward. One of the biggest reasons for making the statement true is the launch of the next phase of Ethereum 2.0. Last year, the popularity of staking chains like Polkadot and Solana also a significant hand to help the Proof-of-Stake blockchain market cap to surge to $175 billion. And it is expected that the total market capitalization will continue to surge.
Staking cryptocurrency earns yields more than S&P 500
According to Staked, staking cryptocurrency across different blockchains gives an average yield of 11.2%. According to Investopedia, the average dividend yield by the S&P 500 over the last decade was approximately less than 3%. Following the data, it is clear that staking cryptocurrency provides a healthy return. On the other hand, it is also found that Ethereum 2.0 staking, accounts for approximately 60% of the total market cap of PoS blockchains. However, the upgrade is expected to bring lower fees and higher payouts in the Ethereum Network.
Significantly fewer tokens are staked in Ethereum 2.0
Last year, staking networks like Polkadot and Solana were in the headlines. It was found that among the total Polkadot (DOT) tokens, more than 65% were staked. And more than 30% of the Solana (SOL) tokens were staked. When Ethereum 2.0 was launched, the cryptosphere witnessed great excitement in the ETH community. Despite the excitement, only 2% of the ETH tokens were staked until now, much smaller than Polkadot and Solana.
A boom in the growth of crypto staking is expected
It is known that the next phase of ETH2 upgrade is tentatively scheduled for this year. The next phase will open withdrawals, which can attract more tokens to be staked in the blockchain. As with the options of withdrawals, users will know that they can take their funds out and increase the number of tokens to stake. The next phase’s launch will help to make this year when this year’s PoS security truly comes into its own.
