When do I get my Consensus layer rewards and when do I get my Execution layer rewards?
Consensus layer rewards are earned frequently and are consistent, and represent a guaranteed opportunity to make staking returns from your validator nodes.
Execution layer returns are infrequent and highly variable, but they can also be very large. It is a key advantage of solo staking that you get to keep these returns and know exactly how much you have earned and when. This is not possible when using a staking-as-a-service provider, an exchange or Liquid Staking Derivatives (LSDs).
