Why You Need Ethereum Staking Policies

Sep 26, 2023
Staking policies govern digital wallet actions, ensuring control, security, & compliance. We look at why you Ethereum Staking Policies are paramount for institutions.

A digital wallet policy is a set of rules or guidelines that govern particular types of operations or activities within the wallet. These rules determine what actions are permissible and under what conditions. Staking policies are a specialized subset focused explicitly on the staking of digital assets.

Without policies, wallets operate in a 'free form' mode, where all transactions and activities are allowed without requiring any specific authorization. However, in an institutional context where governance and control are crucial, running a wallet without policies is akin to steering a ship without a compass.

This blog post explains policies and staking policies, and how they offer an unparalleled level of control and security for asset managers.

Why Are Policies Important?

1. Operational Control: Policies allow you to define the 'what,' 'how,' and 'who' of wallet operations. They serve as a customizable framework that enables you to implement corporate governance within the digital asset space.

2. Security Measures: By setting stringent rules for transaction approval, policies act as an additional layer of security, preventing unauthorized or fraudulent activities.

3. Regulatory Compliance: For asset managers, compliance with industry regulations is not just optional but mandatory. Policies can be tailored to ensure that all wallet activities are in line with relevant laws and regulations.

Staking Policies: Specialized Governance for Asset Staking

Staking policies are comprehensive guidelines that dictate how assets can be staked, who can initiate staking, and under what conditions staking can occur or be modified.

Why Do Staking Policies Matter?

1. Governance in Staking: In a space where a single unauthorized staking transaction could result in considerable losses, staking policies provide a structured and secure framework for asset staking.

2. Operational Efficiency: Beyond governance, staking policies streamline the staking process, reducing both the time and complexity involved, thereby speeding up your time-to-reward.

3. Auditability & Transparency: Just like general policies, staking policies in Blockdaemon’s Institutional Wallet™ offer comprehensive reporting features, providing full transparency and auditability for all staking-related activities.
