Buterin say he doesn’t stake all his ETH
The Ethereum co-founder also mentioned why he doesn’t stake all his ETH. He stated that it is complicated in a bunch of ways and that he only stakes a small fraction of his ETH holdings.
“Because if you stake your ETH, the keys that access it have to be public on a subsystem that is online. For safety, it has to be a Multisig. Multisig for staking is still fairly difficult to set up; it gets complicated in a bunch of ways.”
Speaking of the podcast, Cardano co-founder Charles Hoskinson shared his thoughts on Twitter. Hoskinson expressed his astonishment and found himself at a loss for words. Additionally, he emphasized that all of their ADA is staked, highlighting that this aligns with the intended design of a properly implemented Proof of Stake protocol.
