Ethereum 2.0 Trustless Staking Pools

One of the goals of the Ethereum 2.0 protocol is to allow for trustless staking pools. The main difficulty that had to be overcome to achieve this was the proof of custody construction, which we specifically changed to use a very MPC-friendly cryptographic primitive, the Legendre symbol.



About the speakers


Carl Beekhuizen

I am a student of the University of Twente in the Netherlands who has studied Applied Physics and Master's Computer Science. I recently completed my thesis on the topic of decentralised staking pools. I applied for a grant from the Ethereum Foundation to continue this research, but ultimately withdrew the application due to the variability of the "Shasper" proposal. I am involved in the Eth-2.0 bi-weekly calls and have been and will be attending the sharding events. I am currently working on building a Vyper BLS12-381 Library.
