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:

  • 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:
