Sygnum Eth 2.0 staking participants, will be able to receive an annual income (APY) of 7%.

The Sygnum management announced that the bank clients can conveniently and safely stake Ethereum 2.0 and receive profitability of up to 7% per year. This feature is integrated with the Sygnum banking platform, so customers will be able to use their bank accounts for staking ETH.

With fully isolated wallets, ETH will be held in highly secure individual client accounts. Sygnum said it is ready to expand its range of regulated digital asset products and services.
