"Ethereum is the second largest blockchain protocol, and Ethereum staking is a core element for digital asset portfolios which can now be accessed in a convenient, secure and regulated setting," said Thomas Eichenberger, Head of Business Units at Sygnum Bank.
Besides Ethereum 2.0, Sygnum already offers staking for Tezos (XTZ), and a yield-generating fixed term deposit on its Digital Swiss Franc stablecoin (DCHF). Moreover, as iHodl reported, Sygnum's clients can use fiat currencies, including CHF, EUR, SGD and USD, to buy, hold and trade XTZ.

The bank says its trading facility offers investors’ access to new investment opportunities, including instant settlement, the ability to move between fiat, digital CHF (DCHF) and asset token positions in real-time, and the security of bank-grade custody.
