SafeStake is a decentralized, non-custodial infrastructure and protocol that operates as a trust-minimized middle layer for secure, reliable ETH staking. It's unique architecture aims to eliminate single points of failure for Ethereum validators and promotes decentralization for the entire Ethereum blockchain, via Distributed Validator Technology (DVT).
SafeStake distributes the operations of an Ethereum validator by splitting the validator private key into multiple ‘key shares.’ These shares are then distributed to independent, decentralized operators on a permissionless network thatoperate as committees to attest on behalf of validators. This offers ETH stakers a turnkey solution, enhanced private key security, and fault tolerance that keeps the validator online, maximizing staking rewards.
For large, rather centralized liquid staking providers and services, SafeStake can function as in the capacity of risk mitigation and harm reduction, as the permissionless network of independent, decentralized operators, each with varied tech configurations and geographic locations, effectively distribute risk and make a coordinated attack on the Ethereum blockchain next to impossible.
