The announcement by Binance US

On Wednesday, an official announcement was made by Binance US, where the exchange’s new staking program for Ethereum was announced.

The exchange has announced that the new Ethereum staking program they are planning to introduce would bring in annual 6.0% yields for the participants.

Best Part of the Staking Program

According to the officials, the most remarkable feature of the new staking program is the minimum requirement of ETH.

Binance US has announced that the new Ethereum staking program is different from the old Ethereum staking programs.

In the new program, the users will be required to stake as low as 0.001 ETH. In the past, the users were required to stake a minimum of 32 Ether (ETH) for the staking programs.

Comments by Brian Shroder

Binance US CEO, Brian Shroder talked about Ethereum and its staking features. According to Shroder, the Ethereum network has a key role to play in the growth of the Web3 ecosystem.

The Ethereum network has undergone great development and it has been progressing at a significant rate. With the implementation of the Merge, the Ethereum network will take a huge leap.

Ethereum wants to become one of the most important components of the Web3 ecosystem. Offering a new and different kind of staking program with the highest APY rewards would give a great push to the cryptocurrency ecosystem.

Staking Yields to Benefit from Binance US’s Services

Binance US is confident that its users will be able to benefit tremendously from the services that the company already has in place related to staking.

The US subsidiary of Binance has an automatic restaking feature that the users will be able to take advantage of. The users can benefit from the compounding of returns as they use the automatic restaking feature on their platform.

Rewards to be Held until Merge’s Implementation

For the time being, the users cannot proceed with unstaking ETH. Similarly, the rewards will not be distributed to the users for now. The distribution of the yield rewards will be carried out once the Ethereum network undergoes a transition to the proof-of-stake protocol.

Shanghai Upgrade is pending

The final upgrade for the Merge is set to take place on September 15. Prior to the Merge’s implementation, the Shanghai Upgrade is to take place.

Once the Shanghai Upgrade has taken place, the final implementation of the Merge will take place smoothly.
