i wanted to stake couple of ETH and found about this Rocket Pool at ethereum dot org/en/staking/pools/#explore-staking-pools
After some time I have found Staking Directly via Rocket Pool | Rocket Pool where i can switch to tab “Preparing on the Ethereum Mainnet” it describes on how to add rETH token to my Metamask wallet and how to use https://stake.rocketpool.net to stake by connect to my wallet.
It is quite complicated, i was hoping to stake more simply without using/trusting any centralized website like stake.rocketpool dot net
Some unanswered questions:
- why should i trust that centralized site to connect my wallet?
- how i will unstake (inside Metamask?) if this centralized site is offline and in case i can unstake, then how can I also stake without this site?
- is it worth risking ETH for like 3.5% return while rETH is not risk free? (see beincrypto dot com/learn/rocket-pool-staking/#h-ethereum-staking , paragraph “Are there risks in staking with Rocket Pool?”
- app.uniswap dot org/#/swap returns “1 rETH = 1.03619 ETH” while this site returns “1 rETH = 1.06891 ETH (≈0.26% Premium)” so it means that i can get almost 3% more with Rocket pool and less with UniSwap?
