is a next-generation Proof-of-Stake (PoS) infrastructure service, designed to be highly decentralised, distributed and compatible with staking in Ethereum 2.0, offering any user, business, exchange or fund the ability to earn a yield on their Ethereum (“ETH”) holdings without worrying about maintaining an extensively technical staking infrastructure.Rocket Pool

, Managing Director & Co-Founder of KR1 commented:George McDonaugh

“Building ground-breaking technology for Ethereum’s Proof-of-Stake future has been and continues to be a vast task, requiring hard work, flexibility and dedication. When David and the team started out, Ethereum 2.0 was only at the very beginning of its research phase, so we’re proud to have supported them so early on in their journey.”Rocket Pool

“With KR1 being the only institutional participant in the initial token sale, we received an offer earlier last year for our entire position from a well-known and popular crypto fund, but decided against a sale as we continue to be extremely excited about Rocket Pool’s roadmap and the role of the RPL token in Ethereum’s staking future. In light of recent market conditions, however, the Company decided it was appropriate to realise some profit from its RPL tokens while continuing to hold a healthy position in anticipation of the roll out of Ethereum 2.0.”Rocket PoolRocket Pool

“We are delighted with how our investment in has performed so far and are pleased to once again demonstrate how KR1 is continually looking to pick the best projects that we believe will maximise returns for shareholders.”Rocket Pool
