What is Figment's latest ETH staking performance?
For October, Figment operated validators generated a mean rewards of 0.161626 ETH, while all active validators on the network generated a mean rewards of 0.149758 ETH. View October's Ethereum Validator Performance Report here.
What are the different types of ETH rewards? Where can I view my staking rewards (with details)?
There are two different types of ETH rewards. Execution rewards include tips (aka priority fees) and MEV rewards. Consensus rewards are inflationnary rewards created by Ethereum. You can view, in detail, your staking rewards on the Figment app or via Figment's Rewards API. Learn more about post-Merge rewards.
What is the lockup period for unstaking ETH? When can I unstake and withdraw my ETH? When will the Shanghai upgrade take place?
You can exit the active validator set, but your stake along with consensus rewards are locked until after the Shanghai upgrade.
If a validator chooses to exit the active set they must wait 4 epochs in addition to an exit queue. Currently, a maximum of 7 validators are permitted to exit per epoch. After the validator is considered to have been "exited" there is an additional delay of 256 epochs (~27 hours), that they must wait until their stake (and consensus rewards) are considered withdrawable. Again, even though the stake and rewards are considered "withdrawable" they cannot in fact be withdrawn until after the Shanghai upgrade.
The Shanghai upgrade is estimated to take place in the first half of 2023, but the timing depends on which Ethereum Improvement Proposals (EIPs) are included in Shanghai. For instance, if withdrawals and a few other lighter lift EIPs are included Shanghai could happen as early as mid Q1 2022.
What types of rewards reporting does Figment offer?
Figment provides rewards reporting via the Figment app, CSV files and the Rewards API.
Can I claim my ETH rewards while continuing to stake?
Currently, you can only claim execution rewards (tips and MEV rewards) while continuing to stake. The ability to withdraw consensus rewards (along with stake) will not be available until after the Shanghai upgrade.
Can I choose multiple wallets to receive my ETH rewards?
You cannot choose multiple wallets to receive your ETH rewards.
How does Figment mitigate and prevent ETH staking risks such as slashing?
Figment mitigates and prevents ETH staking risks such as slashing by applying its "Safety over Liveness" approach, which optimizes uptime and prioritizes security. We have adopted Web3Signer, a remote signing solution, to ensure that we never sign two blocks simultaneously (i.e. double signing). To learn more, read "What does Safety Over Liveness Really Mean?" in the Figment Insider Q3 Report.
How many multiples of 32 ETH can be staked in a single transaction via the Figment app?
A maximum of 100 multiples of 32 ETH can be staked in a single transaction via the Figment app.
Can I stake less than 32 ETH?
You can stake less than 32 ETH via Liquid Collective, an enterprise-grade liquid staking solution. Go on the Figment app to start staking.
How are the network gas fees charged when I stake and what is Figment’s commission for staking ETH?
The network gas fees are charged on top of the 32 ETH, so it is necessary to ensure a balance slightly more than 32 ETH per validator. Figment's commission for staking ETH is tailored to each customer based on their staking volume.
Which client(s) do you run?
Figment runs the Geth execution client and the Lighthouse consensus client.
