Ankr ETH (aETH)

    Ankr ETH (aETH) is a fictitious asset that can be staked on the Ankr Network instead of ETH. When a user deposits ETH in an Ankr deposit contract, they receive aETH in exchange, lowering the threshold for investors who want to stake ETH but do not have the minimum 32 ETH coins required to stake on the Ethereum Consensus Layer (formerly known as Ethereum 2.0) to receive a yearly APY. When a user deposits ETH and receives aETH in exchange, their investment is locked in for the same amount of time as users who stake 32 ETH on the Ethereum network.
