imToken now with native Eth2 integration and staking-as-a-service
Generate your Eth2 withdrawal address key pair in 1 click and keep it safe on your phone. Stake on Eth2 - if you have 32ETH.
Eth2 staking is here, and many people are already staking ETH on Eth2 beacon chain. The deposit contract is already holding 4 million ETH, which is around 3.4% of all ETH currently in circulation.
However, it's still hard for many people to actually participate in ETH staking. Users often have to use either convenient, but custodial solutions or a command line interface. However, your favorite wallet is here to help.
We are happy to finally present: Full support for Eth2 key generation and native staking with InfStones on imToken. With this update you can now:
- Manage your Ethereum 2.0 wallet
- Stake ETH on the Eth2 beacon chain
- Also: Check gas fees on the new iOS gas fee widget
- More optimizations and fixes
Generate an Eth2 key pair and manage your new wallet on imToken
1. Open your imToken, on the "Wallet" page click "...".
Enter the wallet management page to see "Ethereum Management".
2. Select "Ethereum 2.0 Wallet Management", click "Generate Eth2 Public Key" and enter the wallet password to generate Eth2 Wallet

How to stake ETH on imToken
Wait, what is Eth2 staking again? The Ethereum network will switch to a PoS (Proof-of-stake) mechanism with the Eth2 upgrade. Ethereum holders can become node validators by staking their ETH and receive additional ETH rewards.
Click on “Eth2 Staking” to enter the staking interface showing your staked balance, then to start staking.
If you have 32ETH, well lucky you 😉 If you have less than 32ETH or want to learn more about Eth2, click "Eth2 DApps" on the "Ethereum 2.0 Staking" page to enter the Eth2 topic page.
iOS gas fee widget
