How to Design DVT While Ensuring Non-Correlation
10-13, 11:30–12:00 (America/Bogota), Talk 4

The proof of stake Ethereum specs are designed to encourage decentralization by punishing centralization.

In this session, we will discuss how to design Distributed Validator Technology in a way that minimizes correlation risk by using design choices across distributed key generation, middleware, networking topology, and versioning. We'll also describe why creating a trust-minimized, non-custodial, and non-correlated architecture is the most healthy way to enable multi-operator staking.

Chris is the head of product at Obol Labs, a R&D-focused team developing a protocol for trust-minimized staking. Before Obol, Chris built the ETH staking launchpad(
