Welcome to the website of RockLogic, the creator of Stereum!
We’d like to provide you with a little story of how Stereum was “born” and what our intentions with it are.
A Little Bit of History
It all began in 2019, when Rocklogic’s founder Stefan Kobrc asked himself: “how to set up an Ethereum node in a less complicated way than this works now?” So, he worked on a docker composer for his own personal use, took a chance on an ETH Foundation development grant and, along the way, hired a few experts to support him.
In Q1 2021, the growing Stereum team decided that Stereum is to lower the technical bar to setting up an Ethereum node - under the assumption that, if Ethereum truly works, at some point everyone will need a node in some compacity.
Also, Stereum’s goal is to keep the Ethereum network decentralized and neutral by giving as many people as possible a way to participate in Ethereum on a network level.
The basic idea then was to start with a simple user interface (UI) and build up from there. On the 5th of July, 2021, Stereum 1.0 was released. Its goal is to simplify running a staking node by an intuitive UI (without having to type in text using a CLI, command line interface).
