SSV Network

What is it about?

Secret Shared Validators (SSV) is the first secure and robust way to split a validator key for ETH staking between non-trusting nodes or operators. A unique protocol that enables the distributed control and operation of an Ethereum validator.

Why we like it?

  • Because it’s open to everyone and it’s fault-tolerant.
  • Because it allows you to optimize the performance of your validator while promoting decentralization across the entire network.
  • Because the validator key is divided in such a way that no operator can take unilateral control of the network.

How to stake ETH in SSV?

To run a SSV distributed validator, there are a two essential prerequisites:

  1. Minimum Stake Requirement: You will need a minimum of 32 ETH for each staking validator you wish to run.

  2. SSV Tokens: To operate validators on the SSV network, holding at least 1,5 SSV tokens per validator is recommended to cover yearly operational costs.

Distributed validators are managed within Clusters - the group of node operators that were selected to operate them.

To run a validator through the SSV network, a user must distribute their validator key to their selected cluster and register it to the network’s smart contract.
