The Blockdaemon team has been busy making these exciting changes accessible for you in numerous ways. Whether you want to re-stake your accumulated rewards, exit some of your validators, or start staking $ETH for the first time - we’ve got you covered!

Monitor Length of Ethereum Validator Queues

As described in a recent update to our Shapella-FAQ for stakers, we do expect an exit/activation queue following the Shapella fork. In partnership with Metrika, we've created a microsite to monitor the length of both queues for Goerli testnet and Ethereum Mainnet. Feel free to share this valuable community resource with others!

Ethereum rewards dashboard and reporting download relaunched


We understand that for institutional customers, accurate accounting of received staking rewards is a must. Our staking API thereby not only automates the staking process across multiple chains, but it also helps with those reporting needs.

The API also powers our relaunched Eth rewards dashboard, which includes a CSV file download option for this month’s and last month's data. We added Goerli testnet support and break down total rewards into protocol, transaction fee and MEV rewards. Learn more about the details here and check it out today in your Blockdaemon account.

Thee zkEVMs Launched in One Week

In the span of just a few days, three long-awaited zero-knowledge (ZK) rollups launched.

Matter Labs introduced zkSync Era
Polygon’s zkEVM Mainnet Beta Goes Live
ConsenSys launched zkEVM Public Testnet, renamed as ‘Linea’

All of them are now open to the public, but are not quite production ready yet. It will be interesting to see the rate of adoption of this Layer 2 roll-up category in general and which will grow the fastest. They differ mainly on their compatibility vs. performance trade-offs.
