An Ethereum 2.0 Validator Node can be hosted with Trezor, Ledger, or MetaMask wallets.


When generating Eth2 validator keys through Allnodes, you will not receive a new mnemonic. There will be two options for withdrawal credentials to choose from: the first one will use your Eth1 address and the second option (available only for Ledger) will use a special Ledger API to get your Eth2 Public key from your Ledger. In either case, access to your initial wallet is required when you decide to withdraw your funds after Phase 1.5. Attention! You don’t EVER share your withdrawal private keys or mnemonic with anyone, including Allnodes.

During the process of hosting your nodes on Allnodes, you'll be asked to upload your json files. These files contain your Validator private keys. A validator private key is required for your Validator node to validate. It is not a withdrawal key and doesn't give access to your funds.

Your Validator key information is protected at all times with Allnodes secure multi-level shield system.
