Quick update from our side:
We are making good progress. Liquid staking via swell protocol is already possible. In Goerli you can now stake your swNFT via our built frontend.
For KYB we now use Quatranta. This part is working already as well but we might still change KYB provider.
Next step is the SSV integration. We will keep you posted.

Here is a screenshot of the current status:


Progress update:

  • Moved project to public repo: GitHub - BlockscapeNetwork/ssv-institutional-staking: ssv institutional staking - live demo via link in “About” section
  • Since swell had some problems we decided to temporarily introduce our own smart contracts for staking layer
  • Verification layer is working. Institutions get a NFT issued once verified (see below)
  • Working on a middleware that splits the keys and calls registersValidator

Staking layer alternative:

NFT for verified institutions / operator:


Love the NFT!
Thank you for the update!

Good news: testable PoC is ready with SSV part is fully implemented!
Check it out at

Some guidance on the usage:
=> To register a verified validator you a Quadrata passport. Click “get verified” or DM me. We can whitelist ur account.
=> Now you can stake your ether
We give you two options:
a) stake 32 goerli eth
b) mock 32 eth staking where no goerli eth is required

=> Once 32 eth are staked a new ssv validator will be registered

This is what it looks like for me:

Next steps: onboard and verify partner SSV operators.
! If you are a SSV operator and you want to collaborate with blockscape to run ssv institutional grade staking operators reach out to us !

P.S. all code is open source in the github repo.

Thx Marko! Sure: GitHub - BlockscapeNetwork/ssv-institutional-staking: ssv institutional staking


GM, certainly time for an other update from our end:

  1. New UI rdy @:
  2. Larger picture: Blockscape is introducing staking vaults. For this we built a new platform called “unistake”. One of them will be the SSV institutional vault. See for more details.
  3. Stakewise v3: For our LSD we decided to go with stakewise v3. Depositing into the vault will only be possible from our frontend because of KYC/KYB requirements.
  4. Compliance: All operators operators and stakers will have to go through the quatranta KYC, will then be whitelisted and can then deposit.
  5. Geographic focus of operators: To avoid legislative restrictions we are partnering with operators that are based in Switzerland and Germany for now.

Looking forward to SSV mainnet launch!

What we accomplished this month:

We welcome any staker to test our platform and welcome feedback!
Everything is still (obviously) on goerli.
