The token is currently approaching its all-time low of approximately $13.40, which was recorded in September 2023.

SSV Founder Getting Drafted

In response to the ongoing crisis in the Middle East, Muroch expressed his concern that the situation on the ground is much worse than what has been described. He suggested that being drafted into the army might help to bring about a positive change and improve the situation.


The recent escalation in the Middle East has resulted in a humanitarian crisis, causing loss of lives and significant destruction of property. As of October 11, it remains uncertain whether Muroch has been mobilized and is actively serving in the military.


While this news did not have an immediate impact on sentiment, blockchain analysis platform Lookonchain identified two noteworthy transfers. Two addresses, namely "ikuvc.eth" and "0xF447," deposited 18,055 SSV tokens worth over $250,000 into Binance, a leading cryptocurrency exchange.


Typically, transfers to centralized exchanges indicate a potential intention to sell. However, it is still unclear whether these addresses have converted their tokens into other currencies such as USDT or more liquid and stable tokens like Bitcoin (BTC) or Ethereum (ETH).


SSV token is currently facing downward pressure in the market. It has experienced a 5% decline in value on the last trading day, extending its losses since its initial listing on Binance when it reached an all-time high of nearly $100. Presently, SSV has plummeted by over 95% from its peak, reflecting the challenging state of the token and the unfavorable market conditions over the past eight months.

SSV Network Still Under Development

The SSV Network aims to strengthen the Ethereum ecosystem by enabling individuals to become validators without the need to operate a node. Ethereum relies on a network of validators to ensure the security of its proof-of-stake system.


The SSV Network utilizes the Distributed Validator Technology (DVT), which distributes the validator key among a network of nodes that do not inherently trust each other. This platform allows anyone to stake ETH without the requirement of running a full validator node, thereby earning rewards.


By doing so, the SSV Network aims to promote decentralization and accessibility in staking while enhancing security and reliability. Currently, the SSV Network is still under development and operates on a permissioned basis. However, there are plans to transition to a Permissionless Launch, which will expand the pool of operators and validators.
