eToro said it’s one of the first exchanges to support staking newcomer ADA. The crypto community cheered the development, including Tron Founder Justin Sun, who could likely use a little positivity these days.
We’re working on plans to support more crypto assets in the future.

We are proud to be one of the first regulated platforms to offer a staking service for Cardano and will be further expanding our staking service in the coming months.
Ethereum Elephant in the Room
eToro’s Assia mentioned that the company is preparing for the eventual unveiling of Ethereum 2.0 and the shift to the POS chain, saying,
We are also working with the Ethereum community to be able to offer staking on ETH2.0 when it moves to proof of stake.
eToro will make the payouts monthly, which appears to be a trend of late, as companies look to offset the sky-high gas fees on Ethereum, not to mention the lengthy transaction confirmation times.
Ethereum is damn near unusable right now.
I can only imagine what retail will think if they eventually come into this market and face $50+ gas fees and 10+ minutes transaction confirmations.
