The Ethereum Blockchain presently is flawed with so many disadvantages that brings the network to a somewhat slow and always congested state which affects the overall performance and also increases gas fee aka transaction fee on the high side leaving your regular users frustrated, ETH 2.0 is a better and futuristic version that encompasses different functions with promises of creating a clean, easy to use, and cheap network for every and all users.

One of the features currently coming to the Ethereum Blockchain is proof of stake, this allows users to stake their ETH and generate an incentive for keeping the network active.

Doing this might be seen as somewhat expensive to your regular based user due to future uncertainty, price volatility, and other expenses required to become an active validator.

To combat this, TokenPocket is ready to bear any loss that may arise in the future by implementing a new DApp called Eth2.0 Staking Vault this allow anyone to become a stakeholder on ETH2.0 and other benefits include easy removal of liquidity and also a requirement of only 0.1 ETH unlike the required 32 ETH needed.

At the moment, an expected yearly return of 5–20% is foreseeable which is likely to change depending on how many users decide to join or leave this program, the more users who join the better for the ETH market in general as it creates some form of scarcity to the total coin supply in circulation and the downside is that it reduces the amount of ETH users who stake are likely to receive, daily, weekly, or monthly.

Getting started with Eth2.0 Staking Vault is very easy and self-explanatory with the only requirement of having TokenPocket wallet installed, an Ethereum account, and a minimum of 0.1 ETH.
