The Graph has decided to move the protocol to Arbitrum since gas fees are smaller for all operations there, including delegating & claiming query fees.
Many query fees on Ethereum remained unclaimed as it was more expensive to claim than their value. As it is cheaper to claim them, delegators will finally have additional revenue to their stake with indexers.
At the moment of writing, 5% of the total rewards of the protocol issuance happens on Arbitrum, while 95% of the rewards are still being distributed on Ethereum.
Sometime around September 10th, a shift to 25% / 75% distribution is expected.
If everything goes well, 2-4 weeks after that, the distribution will be changed to 50%/50%.
As soon as enough stake will migrate to Arbitrum, the distribution will change to 95% Arbitrum / 5% Ethereum.
We have prepared a dashboard to help you make data-driven decisions and maximize your revenue during migration.
We have prepared the best date for you to start the process on this dashboard.
Below the dates, you can see our currently opened allocations on both indexers. You get your rewards when we close those allocations. So, if the allocation is open for 20 days, those rewards are stored on the smart contract, and when we close the allocations, the rewards for these 20 days are assigned to your address. The recommended days are when you get most of the rewards from L1, thus making you ready to move to L2.
4. Click on the Transfer Delegation button. You will end up on this page:
5. The Receiving Arbitrum One Wallet Address will be pre-filled with the same address as your current Ethereum wallet.
a) Make sure that you control that Arbitrum address!
If that is an EOA (a common wallet labeled as “Address” in etherscan), you are good to go unless you want to specify another wallet address.
b) IF YOU ARE USING SAFE OR OTHER SMART CONTRACT WALLET, THEN YOU PROBABLY NEED TO CHANGE THE ADDRESS IN THE RECEIVING ARBITRUM ONE WALLET ADDRESS
! Your Safe Wallet is a SMART CONTRACT! Thus, you most likely don’t control this contract address on Arbitrum. So, change this field to the address you control! It can be another Safe or smart contract wallet on Arbitrum and a regular EOA address, but make sure you own it!
6. It is better to send some ETH to this wallet address via the official Arbitrum bridge https://bridge.arbitrum.io if you don’t have ETH there to pay for gas. Optional: To ensure you control this wallet, you can make some transactions there, no matter which. Remember that the migration process can not be reverted, so sending the tokens to an address you do not control will lose them!
7. Push the transfer delegation button. Your transfer will be initiated.
8. You will see the countdown appear. It is better to stay nearby as the network can have gas spikes, and some additional actions might appear on the left part of the screen. After the countdown reaches 0, the migration will be completed.

<p></p><h3 id="introduction"><strong>Introduction</strong><br></h3><p>Since 2018, we have dedicated ourselves to creating the pinnacle of secure staking solutions, especially within the Ethereum ecosystem. As of June 2023, our operations span over 50 networks, managing staked assets exceeding $1.6B. Recent enhancements to our Platform bolster our enterprise-level staking service, enabling easy integration for custodians, wallets, and neo-banks through a streamlined API. P2P.org stands as a vanguard in the drive for non-custodial staking at the institutional level, consistently pioneering methods to boost its widespread acceptance.<br></p><p>We're now pleased to announce further enhancements as P2P.org and SSV Network are collaborating to bring an upcoming integration of SSV distributed validators staking within the P2P.org staking platform. This enhancement will become a significant milestone for us, making it easier for institutions to manage their portfolio of digital assets and staking strategies utilizing DVT technologies.<br></p><h3 id="dvt-the-institutional-bridge"><strong>DVT, the institutional bridge</strong><br></h3><p>Our vision is to provide institutional investors, their preferred custodians, and B2B wallets with a single integration point to the staking-related services.<br></p><p>We've been working closely with custodians, self-custody services, and wallets and collected the following understanding of their key concerns:<br></p><ul><li>Being risk-averse, a need for comprehensive controls for all the risks associated with staking, including counterparty and slashing risks, is needed.</li><li>They need the ability to use multiple staking providers based on the staker's preference and decentralization considerations.</li><li>They have little appetite for maintaining multiple integrations with these providers, so ease of use and integration are critical.<br></li></ul><p>DVT technology represents an excellent opportunity to create a compelling offer for institutional investors that would address these needs. Once integrated with SSV, the P2P.org staking platform will also receive an additional differentiation that will help its positioning as a single integration point across various staking services, including direct and liquid staking across multiple networks and DVT-based staking. <br></p><p>While many can only offer staking across various providers as a part of a liquid staking option, P2P.org will provide a unique opportunity to stake directly to multiple institutional node operators.<br></p><h3 id="considering-institution-requirements"><strong>Considering institution requirements</strong><br></h3><p>Institutional staking solutions need to reflect important aspects of how hedge funds, VCs, Family Funds, and other similar entities operate in various technical and legal environments:<br></p><ul><li>Funds are typically managed via custody, a B2B wallet, or a crypto-friendly bank.</li><li>These intermediaries would typically be very risk averse and require explicit controls for counterparty risk, slashing risk (e.g., insurance), and legal risk, including OFAC compliance with the MEV relays.</li><li>They would often employ highly skilled professionals requiring control of the specific MEV relays in use and access to quasi-real-time monitoring.<br></li></ul><p>With these points in mind, we envision the Platform built with the following approach:<br></p><ul><li>API first: building for easy integration with the custodians and wallets</li><li>Whitelisted node operator set: Pick the locations and partners that would be capable of supporting each specific institutional requirements</li><li>Built-in reporting capabilities for better tax reporting and rewards management for their specific jurisdictions<br></li></ul><h3 id="payment-simplification"><strong>Payment simplification</strong><br></h3><p>SSV Network operates on a tokenomics model where SSV tokens are essential for availing the validator services. On the other hand, institutional stakers are familiar with two prevalent fee structures: monthly billing and an automatic deduction of validator fees from their cumulative staking rewards. In the latter case, stakers receive slightly diminished rewards, for instance, 95% of the total if there's a 5% validator commission, ensuring a hassle-free payment process for the validator.<br></p><p>P2P.org will keep this arrangement as much as possible within the SSV integration, so we must navigate the discrepancy between the clients' preferred pay method and the SSV tokenomics model.<br></p><h3 id="only-trusted-operators-need-to-apply"><strong>Only trusted operators need to apply</strong><br></h3><p>Due to the Platform's emphasis on institutional needs and the additional demands this places on node operators, we anticipate that the Platform will function with a pre-approved list of node operators, at least in the immediate to medium future. The P2P.org team will oversee the management and integration of node operators, drawing from the expertise we've gained through various partnerships with similar technical requirements. <br><br>Essential criteria for node operators will encompass the following:<br></p><ul><li>Reputable providers with proven track records for managing large amounts of stake and working with institutions</li><li>High-performance track record, as measured by rated network or similar tools</li><li>Consent to operate with the standard SSV fees assigned by the Platform</li><li>Commitment to providing the infrastructure that would be diversified geographically, as well as client software-wise, and MEV relay-wise</li><li>Potentially, commitment to providing slashing insurance<br></li></ul><p>In the future, node operator participation can be opened to a broader group of node operators.</p>

<p></p><p>As part of our ongoing effort to support Institutional demand and the needs of large ETH stakers, P2P.org has developed a new smart contract that allows true large scale stake of up to 12,800 ETH in a single transaction. (you can find the audit report by @MixBytes <a href="https://p2p.org/networks/ethereum/staking/audit.pdf?ref=p2p.org">here</a>).</p><div class="kg-card kg-callout-card kg-callout-card-blue"><div class="kg-callout-text">smart contract address: <a href="https://etherscan.io/address/0x8e76a33f1aFf7EB15DE832810506814aF4789536?ref=p2p.org">0x8e76a33f1aFf7EB15DE832810506814aF4789536</a></div></div><p>This groundbreaking technology is just one of the many pillars supporting our innovative non-custodial staking platform. It allows users to have set fees agreed upon before you stake via MetaMask, Ledger & Safe. <strong>This new feature allows true institutional staking without boundaries. </strong></p><p><strong>Breaking the industry norms which currently only allows a user to stake up to 3,200 ETH from a wallet in a single transaction.</strong><br><br>We received tens of questions about the purpose of the 3200 $ETH limitation. At that moment, we realized how inconvenient that standard was. It needed to be fixed. The service is meant to be simple and user-friendly!<br>Imagine: You want to stake 12 thousand ETH and you used to have to make 3 transactions. You pay for gas. Plus, it is especially inconvenient if you have multisig. Less transactions - better. It's easy to make mistakes and lose money when you're signing the fifth transaction in a row<br><br>We have solved these problems. Now we have truly institutional stake feature. 12k ETH per one transaction. One click staking. It should be as simple as that.<br><br>But truly institutional staking means something else. It’s big. True. But it’s <strong>SIMPLE AND FAIR</strong>, too!</p><p>Unlike others, we won't overcharge you as your Ethereum rewards grow. Our fee is precisely agreed upon, on-chain. You won't be overpaying and it allows you to stake confidently with all the clarity.</p><p>Context: There are two revenue streams in Ethereum, consensus rewards for performing validators duties like attestations and execution rewards for proposing blocks (the last one part includes MEV as well). And popular approach nowadays is to place proxy smart contract witch accumulates executions layer rewards (EL) and charge some % - like 25-35% from EL rewards. It's simple one.</p><p>BUT proportion between CL / EL rewards isn't stable. Our research shows that while you paying 30% from EL it quals 8% from total rewards in average. BUT since you may be lucky and get more blocks to create / large MEV you are at risk to be overcharged and pay up to 10-11% fee from total rewards. </p><p>That's not fair! It's difficult to choose the staking option while you don't know which exact conditions you are agree on. 8% or 11%? </p><p>So we created the oracle that knows how many CL rewards you got and calculate how many $eth we should charge you from El rewards in order to get exact % from total rewards. With P2P you will pay exact percent we agreed on. No less, no more.</p><p>You need this type of convenience and safety when staking large amounts of $ETH!</p><p><strong>We've reimagined large-scale ETH staking, simplifying the process and offering considerable savings in both time and money. </strong><br><br>Where others might vary their fees or give complex conditions, we stick to clarity and transparency. Our smart contract ensures that the exact % agreed upon is charged from your rewards. No hidden fees. No ambiguity. Only absolute transparency.</p><p><strong>How P2P.org is simplifying Institutional staking</strong></p><p>For our users, you can now manage and stake upto 12,800 ETH within one single session, providing a seamless user experience. You'll also notice enhanced functionalities, accommodating the 12.8k ETH deposit smart contract, ensuring a smoother user experience.</p><p>Additionally, our personalized dashboard is crafted with the user in mind, centralizing all vital data in an intuitive interface, making asset management truly effortless. Moreover, our comprehensive reporting capabilities let you delve deep into your staking history. Track rewards, assess strategies, and glean insights using a multitude of data points, ensuring you're always in the driver's seat of your digital journey.</p><p>At P2P.org, we remain committed to ensuring true ownership of a user's digital assets and providing users with a genuine decentralized non-custodial staking experience.
