Liquid staking is a concept in blockchain technology that allows token holders to stake their tokens (participate in the network's consensus and receive rewards) while maintaining liquidity of their assets.
Liquid Staking allows users to mint a token that represents their staked assets and grows in value as staking rewards accrue. The token will have wide acceptance in Defi and hence allow users to participate in both securing the network via staking and pursue Defi rewards.
They do continuous review and testing of all code.
Perform regular audits of smart contracts by external auditors (10+ successful audits across multiple chains).
Using Multi-sig admin accounts for changing smart contract parameters.
Since withdrawals have been enabled, marking the successful conclusion of Ethereum's transition to PoS, the interest in staking ETH and running Ethereum validators has been on the rise.
ETHx is an innovative liquid staking token developed by Stader, designed to revolutionize Ethereum staking. Their vision for ETHx is to transform the staking experience, providing users with the unprecedented freedom to move and utilize their staked ETH while continuing to earn rewards and engage with the growing DeFi ecosystem.
ETHx is built to reduce technical and capital barriers to running nodes on Ethereum and empowering smaller node operators is of the highest importance for Stader.
