Rocket Pool Able To Launch ETH 2.0 Staking With New Withdrawal Contracts
This proposal would allow for simple withdrawal contracts to be written today, albeit expressive ones. In case the proposal itself is implemented, Ryan estimates that a solid 80% of all use cases needing withdrawal contracts will be satisfied in the process.
David Rugendyke, the founder of Rocket Pool, explained that a centralized custodian is needed in order to control validator withdrawal keys. Rugendyke explained that this, in turn, would cause trust issues, ones that aren’t worth giving up Rocket Pool’s core values and risking the deposits of its various users in the process.
