What is Lido?

Lido is a liquid staking protocol on ETH (and a few other layer 1 blockchains). Lido currently has about 250,000 stakers and approx. 9 billion in TVL (total value locked). It’s also the market leader for liquid staking.

What is liquid staking?

Liquid staking is a staking method that is more liquid and doesn’t require the normal minimums. With liquid staking, you receive liquid staking tokens in your wallet that earn staking rewards. You can exchange these tokens for native ETH at anytime… hence the term ‘liquid.’

What is Coinbase Wallet?

Coinbase Wallet is a web3, self-custody wallet by Coinbase. Why is self-custody important?

☑️ Enter how much ETH you wish to stake with Lido in the ‘Amount’ box and click ‘Submit’.

Once this process is complete and confirmed, you will see the newly staked funds in Lido. You will also these amounts in Coinbase Wallet, but even more useful is seeing them on the StakeBoard dashboard.
