Total ETH Staked
Total ETH Staked is an indicator that shows the total amount of ETH that has been allocated towards the Ethereum staking contract over time. The total amount can be displayed either in USD or in ETH.

The indicator can be also used as a proxy of how much interest and trust there is over the consensus
