Yes. Equally importantly, we adhere to the necessary regulations for the jurisdictions in which our customers reside.

Our customers maintain control of their withdrawal keys, which provide them complete control over the movement of their funds as well as all rewards. We maintain control of the validator keys, through a resilient and secure threshold signing configuration. We do this so that we can offer a full service; if the customer had complete control of the validator keys they would need to maintain the systems that looked after those keys to ensure their validations are signed, which would be against the idea of a staking service. Equally, if the customer had control of validator keys it would be possible for themselves, or third parties with access to their keys, to create slashing events whose origin could not be ascertained. Our configuration ensures that we are responsible for validating, and the customer maintains control of their funds.

No.

Attestant itself was formed a little over a year ago, with its sole focus on providing Ethereum 2 staking services. The founders have many years experience in the cryptocurrency space, including significant work on Bitcoin (e.g. one of our team was a founder of the MultiBit wallet) and Ethereum (the ethereal command-line tool, ENS, eth.link etc.)

No smart contracts.

Attestant runs dedicated hardware in tier 3 and 4 data centres. Importantly, it has no dependency on cloud services. The infrastructure is designed to be highly resilient, with entities either simply redundant (e.g beacon nodes, where multiple servers in different data centres are active at all times) or redundant through threshold (e.g. signers, where 2 of 5 signers can be unavailable without service loss). Attestant has built its own validator client, Vouch, to work with multiple beacon nodes for the highest levels of resiliency as well as maximum responsiveness and optimum selection of beacon block proposals and attestation data.

Attestant is privately funded. It has no token.

We charge 17.5% of rewards, with a discounted rate of 12.5% up to the first 45 days after genesis for customers who wish to join us early for the staking journey
