Deposit contract

The /eth/v1/config/deposit_contract method provides crucial information about the Ethereum PoS deposit contract. The deposit contract is a key component of the Ethereum staking process, acting as the entry point for users who wish to become validators on the Beacon Chain. This contract handles the deposits of ETH required for staking, ensuring the security and validity of the staking process.

Developers and users can utilize this method to access important details about the deposit contract, aiding them in participating in the staking process and ensuring their interactions are aligned with the current network protocol.
