Hello, thank you for the response. As far as i understand, ethereum has the same trust problem. A malicious actor could use the pooled funds and act against the network. The network would penalize the actor until the stake is lost. So to participate in the pool you have to trust the owner of the pool. I think i would build the trust at the contract level. The contract could require that a certain amount of the fund is staked by the contract owner. So it would be economicaly not wise to act against the network.
