Ethereum Node Setup 1.6



We support blox’ SSV implementation on testnet Prater with Lighthouse client setup! Make sure to use a web socket connection as your first Ethereum 1 url and the normal http Ethereum 1 api url as second in the url endpoint list when you try it out with your own Stereum Ethereum Node Setup. We also run a verified SSV operator up and running, feel free to try it out by using it with your own Prater testnet validator account! Of course you can run on Ubuntu as well as on CentOS.

Operator keys are automatically generated on setup.

Fast Sync

This feature boosts the sync speed significantly. Select it when installing a Stereum Node and the setup will download a daily updated blockchain database snapshot from our cloud infrastructure to your server and install it for your node. This reduces sync time of your beacon chain clients significantly and enables users to spin up a fully synced beacon chain client in less than 30 minutes depending on your hardware and bandwidth.

We support testnet Prater as well as Mainnet with all 4 clients (Lighthouse, Nimbus, Prysm, Teku)!


  • Control-Center-UI: Progress bar fixed on setup.
  • Various service bugfixes through service updates, please review the release notes of the updated services for further information.

Service updates
