Obol Labs supports the advancement of Liquid Collective’s infrastructure

Obol Labs will play a key role in assisting Liquid Collective’s Node Operator Working Group, assisting with Liquid Collective’s Oracle operations, and more.

Obol Labs supports the advancement of Liquid Collective’s infrastructure

Obol Labs, a research and development team focused on proof of stake infrastructure for public blockchain networks and Distributed Validator Technology (DVT), is collaborating with Liquid Collective, the dispersed community of industry participants building the Liquid Collective liquid staking protocol, to support the advancement of Liquid Collective’s Ethereum staking operations.

In addition to assisting with Liquid Collective’s Oracle operations, Obol Labs will leverage its expertise in DV (Distributed Validator) research and development to assist Liquid Collective’s Node Operator Working Group in the exploration of how DVT can enhance the protocol's Node Operator requirements and onboarding processes.

“We're thrilled to begin our collaboration with Liquid Collective to integrate DVT into the fabric of their node operator standards, enhancing security, resilience, and decentralisation for professional node operators, institutional stakers, and the entire Ethereum network,” said Collin Myers, Obol Co-Founder and CEO. “Together, we're forging a path towards a more robust and trust-minimised web3 infrastructure.”

In support of these efforts, over the coming months Obol will also be collaborating with Alluvial, a team supporting Liquid Collective’s development, to carry out internal DV testing. The teams will collaborate to research the integration of security-enabling technologies into node operations, including multi-operator staking for institutional risk mitigation, by running high-performance distributed validators on testnet with MEV-Boost enabled.

“Obol Labs’ leadership in the field of DVT research, and expertise in developing proof of stake infrastructure, will support Liquid Collective’s ongoing efforts to advance, expand, and harden the protocol’s staking infrastructure across multiple fronts,” said Matt Leisinger, Co-Founder and CPO of Alluvial. “We’re excited to kick off internal DV testing at Alluvial with Obol Labs to further develop our understanding of how this future-looking technology will support the security, distribution, and resiliency of Liquid Collective’s active set.”

As Liquid Collective’s Node Operator Working Group continues to explore the integration of security-enabling technologies, including distributed validator technology (DVT), Obol Labs is uniquely positioned to educate the protocol's stakeholders about the benefits of these technologies and their potential models for application.

Obol, Alluvial, and the teams supporting Liquid Collective are dedicated to fostering a comprehensive understanding of staking and risk-adjusted participation through this ongoing collaboration. By conducting joint research, producing insightful reports, and bringing the community together to learn, these teams aim to deepen understanding into the motivations, potential risks, and opportunities inherent in staking, while empowering participants with the knowledge needed to navigate the staking landscape confidently and effectively.
