How is Kiln preparing for the Merge?

The Merge
is coming

Planned for mid-September (did you know that no one can predict the exact date?), the Ethereum Merge will finally mark the full transition to Proof-of-Stake!

As one the main Ethereum validators, Kiln actively participated in the reviewing process of all the different testnets to ensure the smoothest transition.

What implications on staking rewards?

With more than 2% share of all ETH staked, Kiln already has a strong track record on Ethereum staking and this upgrade will continue to open up new possibilities as we are anticipating ETH staking rewards to rise as high as ~12%, mainly due to:

  • EVM transaction fees reward flowing from miners to stakers

  • MEV rewards, Kiln was the first node operator to deploy Flashbot’s MEV-Boost on ETH PoS!
