We are thrilled to announce that our latest Validator NFT product contract has just undergone a full security audit by BlockSec, a well renowned and trusted entity in the blockchain security space and has been given a clean bill of health.
The report is a major milestone in our groundbreaking Validator NFT product and on the back of this news we are very close to launching our early beta testing phase before going live in early 2023.
Stake & Mint are stakefish Validator NFTs that map 1:1 with an Ethereum validator, with the NFT reflecting the four states stakefish supports for staking: Depositing, Active, Withdrawn, and Exiting.
This process of mapping will make it simple for stakers to convert 32 ETH to a single NFT representing their ownership of the Ethereum validator.
In itself, this NFT is like any other NFT. Yet, when ownership of the NFT transfers, the ownership of the validator changes along with it. The NFT carries control of the validator. Users can request validator exits with ownership of the NFT once withdrawals for Ethereum staking enable.
In the future, the owner of the NFT will be able to withdraw the principal deposit, protocol rewards, and the claiming of MEV fees and priority tips. Additionally, there are potential use cases to unlock such collateralization to get liquidity in the future.

BlockSec provides audits according to the following procedure
They first scan smart contracts with automatic code analyzers, and then
manually verify (reject or confirm) the issues reported by them.
They study the business logic of smart contracts and conduct further investiga-
tion on the possible vulnerabilities using an automatic fuzzing tool (developed by our research team).
They also manually analyze possible attack scenarios with independent auditors to cross-check the result.
They provide some useful advice to developers from the perspective of good
programming practice, including gas optimization, code style, and etc.
