AllNodes.com vs Blox Staking

Hello Guys ,

This is my 2nd thread about Eth Staking , since then i’ve been doing some resarch about where should i do my staking , now i want to decide between [**AllNodes.com**](https://AllNodes.com) and **Blox Staking** .

I’ve tried both of them , with GoerliETH test , and setup was easy , specially on AllNodes , i’ve used ledger , so i never had to write new seed phrase , i’ve generated Validator Keys using my **Ledger** , so this seems “secure” .

But what worries me is i had to upload validator keys there , i’m kinda noob , is there any danger involved , what if someone sees my validator keys , what damage can he do to me ?

I’ve seen allso AllNodes **trustpilot reviews** , but there were alot of users without a profile picture who did reviews (and it kinda worries me, they might be fake reviews) , maybe i’m overthinking this , but i’m not a rich guy , so 32 eth (50% of them are my cousin’s eth) are big responsibility for me .

For me AllNodes seems to good to be true , is anyone here who’s been using that service , and can tell me more about them , 10$ /mo for me it’s great price , if you don’t have to worry about electricity/setup pc etc …

On other hand **Blox Staking** was easy setup too , but what i didn’t like there , i had to get **new seed** , and i was connected to the internet (isn’t this dangerous too) ?

Their videos are clear , and i’ve done setup via (Amazon) and seems it’s okay , but that seed thing worried me , and it’s free , why would they do it for free ?!

I’ll include screenshots of both [AllNodes.com](https://AllNodes.com) and Blox Staking , from my tesnet validators .

Thanks alot for your responses , and excuse my dumb questions , but i’m totally noob .

But is there any option for them (specially Allnodes) to do rugpull and steal my eth (or it’s imposible , because i only have seed , and use it for withdrawls)

Best Regards.

What do you think?

  1. You can import an existing seed into Blox Live, and then take the seed away from Blox Live after initial setup.

    I agree with you that “seedless” is highly desirable. It’s “on the roadmap”, maybe Blox can chime in with a rough ETA.

    With Blox, your signing key is in a keyvault in your Amazon account, or in future you’ll have the option to split the key and give fragments to multiple operators: That’s “SSV”, Secret Shared Validators.

    Blox is free until merge, and will charge after that, is my understanding.

  2. I did Allnodes and have been live now for 3 months and couldn’t be happier. Super easy to set up – if you search for Allnodes under ethstaker you’ll see I asked similar questions. Good luck!

  3. I went with allnodes as well. Zero missed attestations in the 3 weeks I have been up. I am very happy with their service and very responsive on discord if you have questions. I would go with the $10/mo option if you can afford it.

  4. For what it’s worth, I am one of those trustpilot reviewers without a profile pic. I’ve had zero problems with allnodes so far and hope that continues on to the merge 🤞

  5. Why don’t you just use Launchnodes? They are non custodial, aws based, take zero commission and so on.

    Main part is that you don’t depend on any third parties
