Lido Finance represents the largest LSD provider

  • Staking Ethereum
  • Initial requirements maybe be an issue when staking ETH.
  • The LDO token can be traded on exchanges.

When you want to stake ETH, one of the issues an individual may face is the initial requirements. You don’t have to buy any mining rigs (unlike with Proof-of-Work Bitcoin), but you do need a minimum of 32 ETH to start getting rewards. With the current ETH price around $2,000, that equals $64,000 – which might be out of reach for some investors.

Lido Finance bridges the gap for users by allowing them to combine their ETH. Individual investors may stake any amount of ETH and receive an APR of 4% (lower than the current staking reward of 4.2%). Lido Finance makes money through a difference in APR (0.2 percent).

Lido Finance has been live on mainnet with over 4.1MM ETH staked from over 3,000 unique addresses. The platform is continuously growing with more and more users flocking to it to stake their ETH. It is also a non-custodial staking platform that allows users to stake their $ETH and receive rewards in the form of an ERC20 token called $LDO.

The LDO token can be traded on exchanges or used to redeem products and services within the Lido ecosystem. Lido plans to offer a suite of products that will help users maximize their returns and make the most out of their staked ETH. So far, Lido Finance has been well-received by the community with many users taking to social media to praise the platform. The team is constantly working on new features and improvements to make the experience even better for users.

“Liquid staking derivatives (LSD) such as Lido and similar protocols are a stratum for cartelization and induce significant risks to the Ethereum protocol and to the associated pooled capital when exceeding critical consensus thresholds,” A report said.
