I could be wrong although I seldom am off about these things. It appears as if Lido DAO (LDO) is going to Gap uP. Looking at the charts prices were much higher not too long ago and there is minimal selling pressure in a healthy balanced Coin. The upward incline is there and APPEARS as if a breakout is imminent. Besides that I've been here and there taking advantage of whatever is available. Do me a favor and reply back with anything that has significant upside potential. GT!

tldr; Lido (LDO) staked ETH traded at a discount to ETH on Curve after a whale removed 84,131 ETH ($101 million) from the protocol, allowing arbitrageurs to profit from the situation. Meanwhile, a whale withdrew 42,400 stETH from Aave Protocol V2. Another trader has longed stETH on Aave with a plan to take profit when stETH/ETH returns to peg. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article. As always, DYOR.*

This is actually a great questions. This is directly from Lido on how they plan to deal with this "Though the Beacon chain already supports setting withdrawal credentials pointing to a smart contract, the withdrawals specification is not yet final and might change before withdrawals are enabled in the Merge network. This means that Lido cannot deploy the final implementation of the withdrawals manager contract yet. At the same time, it's desirable to have withdrawal credentials pointing to a smart contract since this would avoid the need to migrate a lot of validators to new withdrawal credentials once withdrawals are enabled. To solve this, Lido uses a DAO-controlled upgradeable proxy, WithdrawalsManagerProxy. Initially, the proxy uses a stub implementation contract, WithdrawalsManagerStub, that cannot receive Ether. The implementation can only be changed by LDO holders collectively by performing a DAO vote. Lido DAO will vote for setting validator withdrawal credentials pointing to this proxy contract. When Ethereum 2.0 withdrawals specification is finalized, Lido DAO will prepare the new implementation contract and initiate a vote among LDO holders for upgrading this proxy to the new implementation. Once withdrawals are enabled in Ethereum 2.0, Lido DAO members will start a vote among LDO holders for disabling the upgradeability forever and locking the implementation by changing proxy admin from the DAO Voting contract to a zero address (which is an irreversible action)."

BTC + Infrastructure (ETH, MATIC) + Web3 (AR, DIA, LINK, DOT, HNT) + Defi (LDO, AAVE). Let's hope to anticipate from 2024 to 2023.

tell me how a token like stETH isnt risky when it represents the illiquid supply of ethereum? taking out defi loans backed by an asset that’s 1:1 with an illiquid portion of eth seems like a different house of cards. also, Lido DAO controls the DAO’s treasury and can change the governance model of the DAO as well as the parameters of the Lido protocol… and the majority share of LDO is owned by insider investors; including Lido Founder Crypto Cobain/Cobie aka Jordan Fish who’s friends with 3AC, SBF, Do Kwon, Martin Shkreli, and other degenerates. saying there’s no risk because its not lending is missing the forest for the trees.

"If you started staking prior to August 30, 2021, Coinbase will replace any ETH lost to slashing at no additional cost. If you started staking your ETH after August 30, 2021 or wrap your staked ETH for cbETH, some conditions apply—please see the User Agreement for details." So only kinda true. As for Lido I have a vague memory of them using half of their fee to buy insurance, but seems now days it goes to their treasury instead. They have about 7 million worth of stETH allocated to an "insurance fund" so at least on surface level they have a plan for less than catastrophic mass slashing event. That being said I'm not a fan of their LDO token, or DAOs in general. Though at least the token makes sense while validator ETH is locked into the contract. It's going to be interesting what happens to it once withdrawals are enabled sometime in the future.

Just when i blaced a buy order for LDO for 256$, the market went doooown. Like why not sooner so i could buy for cheap ?

>If you mess up, you get ganked ("slashed") for your Ether This is a common misconception. If you mess up, you get penalised. Slashing is reserved for malicious activities. You have to intentionally do something bad. Penalties are very minor in comparison, and you just need more uptime than downtime to be profitable. Maintaining a validator is requires minimal effort. The hardest part is setting up and gaining the knowledge to do this in the first place (and even then you have step by step guides). &#x200B; >I think their argument is literally 100% the opposite of "not caring about the health of the network". To make a health related metaphor, Lido think we should use actual, trained doctors. Others think we should use the guy down the street who got a B+ in high school biology. This is complete nonsense and you completely miss the point. The only benefit professionals have is economies of scale for hardware and redundancy set ups. If you actually look at network performance ([rated.network](https://rated.network)) you will see that the effectiveness of many professional outfits is lower than that of individuals. Hell, one 'professional' didn't even update for Bellatrix and leaked rewards for 8 hours. &#x200B; >Not to mention, you need 32 ETH to solo stake in a purely decentralized way (Rocketpool's "give us 16ETH option gives and we'll partner with you to run it" option gives them more control over more validators with less of their own funds at stake... which is literally the opposite of increasing decentralization). It's going to be dominated by legit professionals by default. Wrong again. Rocket Pool matches 16 ETH of user deposits with 16 ETH of a node operator. That's all it is. This reduces the barrier to entry and actually \*increase\* decentralisation, as it enables more node operators. Individual NO's still have 16 ETH at stake (which is first on the line), plus their RPL stake, and this will cover for 99.9% of eventualities. &#x200B; >I think this staggering figures shows just how much better of a product Lido is than it's competitors. The figures show first mover advantage. Lido was first LSD on the market at Genesis. It has therefore benefited from the largest network effects - Maker and AAve collateral integrations, Ledger integrations etc. It has the deepest liquidity and was able to absorb initial demand. Those that wanted an LSD sunk their ETH in to Lido as the only thing on the market. &#x200B; >Rocketpools makes you stake their shitcoin in order to participate in validation. Lido isn't scamming you into buying and hodling the LDO token just to do staking. As mentioned above, this is quite literal a security measure and is why it leads to greater decentralisation. To stake, you need something at stake. Lido node operators have nothing at stake. They receive 5% of validator rewards for absolutely nothing. Their only incentive is further profit, but this is independent of validator performance. &#x200B; >That's on the validator side. On the customer side, they are LIQUID staking so I'm assuming people using them want the advantages of a LIQUID token. Lido has insanely more liquidity, so less price impact on selling. Lido is accepted in way more defi protocols than Rocketpool is so you can actually use it in stuff, which is a major point of a LIQUID token. They're also on more L2s and side chains so you have more places to use it. Yes - as above. If you launch a year ahead of competition, you would expect to cover a lot more ground. This advantage diminishes over time. >Lido has some first mover advantage but a lot of their liquidity comes from just being a flat out better product. Why is it a better product? All things being equal it is objectively an inferior product. It's not trustless and yields less than competitors. >Nothing stops Rocketpool from being like you don't have to hodl our shitcoin just to be a validator... but they value the shitcoin more than they validation. As above - this is false. It is required for insurance to rETH holders (protection against malicious NO's) and further incentivises NO's to do their job. > Nothing stops rocketpool or cbETH from being on L2s and sidechains... but they aren't. The competition isn't even trying to compete with Lido. DAO governance is the sticking point. Rocket Pool has open votes on Maker and Balancer. A Chainlink oracle is close to fruition and that opens the door to Aave and many more protocols. You're right in so much as nothing is stopping them, but time is the key component here, not lack of trying. >Their only selling point is buh buh 33% so you HAVE to use us. It's not the only selling point, but it 100% is a reason to avoid. Without a healthy network, there are no rewards. A healthy network is the number one priority.

For those curious, the statement was that *the hardware used to secure Ethereum should be professionally managed* and *at home staking "hobbyists"* Down votes incoming, but I agree. Ethereum staking involves a carrot *and* a stick where pow is just carrots. If you mess up, you get ganked ("slashed") for your Ether. I don't want to stake with someone doing this as a side hustle or just for shits and giggles. I don't want to hear, "I was at work so that's why..." or "look man, I do this for fun and I been busy all week with work and kids so yeah, I didn't know what was going on" and everything boiling down to, "you know I'm not a professional. You knew the risks and you staked to me anyways. That's 100% on you." > Not only do Lido not care about the health of network, I think their argument is literally 100% the opposite of "not caring about the health of the network". To make a health related metaphor, Lido think we should use actual, trained doctors. Others think we should use the guy down the street who got a B+ in high school biology.

>64% of all ETH staked in the platform's Beacon Chain is controlled by only five entities. Of the big five, Lido leads the way with 31% of all staked ETH, while centralized exchanges Coinbase, Kraken and Binance control a combined total of 30%. True. But they dont control anything. Tornado Cash is indeed the perfect example. Most of the entitites you named blocked any transactions with TC. And TC still works perfectly. Because the solo stakers didnt block them. So even if a party controlls 64% of the network they cant censor any transactions. They haven no control over the minority not to validate the transaction they block. But this whole discussion is moot anyway since this problem is even bigger with Proof of Work since the neccesity to join pools is even greater there and those are just as easy to censor. >LDO tokens -- which grant governance rights -- exhibit a fairly concentrated ownership pattern - the top 9 addresses hold 46% of total voting power, which could pose a centralization risk to Ethereum if Lido establishes a dominant share of staked ETH. For many votes on Lido, only a small minority of wallets actually participate, introducing even further centralization. If Lido ends up holding a majority share in staked ETH then this could allow Lido to take advantage of opportunities like multi-block MEV, carry out profitable block re-orgs, and in the worst case scenario censor certain transactions by enforcing or rewarding validators to operate in accordance with Lido’s wishes (via governance). Indeed having lido tokens gives you governance over Lido. Lido having a 30% stake gives them 0 governance over ETH tho. Since there is no on chain governance of ETH. And like i said above no control over the network. So again a moot point. &#x200B; >There’s also the possibility of a centralized exchange such as Binance or Coinbase capturing a majority share in Ethereum, which could be more straightforward to censor than attempting Lido governance capture. Being the majority censors nothing. Like ive already explained above. >All of this is now a real possibility due to PoS and is the reason why I have sold all my ETH. What’s the point of even entertaining cryptocurrency if it’s governance can be swiftly hijacked just like fiat. All of this was also possible on Proof of Work. Since mining pools are even more centralised and just as possible to force to censor.

64% of all ETH staked in the platform's Beacon Chain is controlled by only five entities. Of the big five, Lido leads the way with 31% of all staked ETH, while centralized exchanges Coinbase, Kraken and Binance control a combined total of 30%. In the context of the US ban on the Tornado Cash mixing service, the concentration of staked ETH in the hands of a few centralized entities raises the very real specter of censorship. And with exchanges such as Coinbase and Kraken regularly complying with law enforcement requests, Ethereum's move from proof-of-work and proof-of-stake potentially opens the blockchain's door to greater governmental and regulatory control. Staked ethereum -- which currently totals 13.4 million ETH -- can be broken down into ten categories and Lido leads the way with 31% of all staked ETH. LDO tokens -- which grant governance rights -- exhibit a fairly concentrated ownership pattern - the top 9 addresses hold 46% of total voting power, which could pose a centralization risk to Ethereum if Lido establishes a dominant share of staked ETH. For many votes on Lido, only a small minority of wallets actually participate, introducing even further centralization.

There’s also the possibility of a centralized exchange such as Binance or Coinbase capturing a majority share in Ethereum, which could be more straightforward to censor than attempting Lido governance capture.

Not OP but here's a wild conspiracy prediction: Lido continues to grow in size and at some point controls too large a "stake" of the ethereum network via their LDO governance token (which ETH holders have no control over). This becomes such a liability that ETH foundation tells LDO holders to change the Lido protocol to cap their stake or they will force them out via protocol change/a hard fork. Making all those ETH worthless and everyone elses ETH considerably more valuable. This clear demonstration of centralisation of power causes a ripple effect and mass dumpage. I don't expect this to happen mind you but there is growing concern over Lido and it's governance token holders seemingly refusing to implement beneficial protocol controls.

Hey mate, which API calls did you use on the CoinGecko api? Trying to redo this as well and also do it on Coinmarketcap and Nomics. there's some tokens in here I actually have been looking into (YGG, LDO, GALA) for example

I assume with rETH you mean rocketpool ETH? There isn't really much to do, they are quite different to stETH. Lido gives out LDO tokens to literally dozens of protocols to push the adoption of stETH, rocketpool doesn't really works this way. Given that it is staked ETH, you already earn the staking yield baked into the token. The APY by just holding it probably will be >8% after the merge, so you can just leave it in a wallet and earn that sweet extra ETH without doing anything.

Lido control 30% of all staked eth. Lido is controlled by governance token LDO. LDO is 68% owned by just 18 addresses. LDO proposals need 5% threshold and 50.1% to pass. LDO market cap is only $116m. The Dao controls the ethereum validators registration address and access the the staked ETH. For 60m you could take control of 4m ETH or 4bn dollars and control over 30% of validators on the ethereum network. $60m wouldn't get you shit on the current POW eth chain.

Honestly, after reading that blog post by Danny Ryan it's kind of shocking to me that this isn't front page news and being spoken about more widely. You could essentially perform a complete hostile takeover of the ETH network without ever buying a single ETH. You just need to gain control of LDO.

r/CryptoCurrencySee Comment

Yes and it's not even neccesarily ETH stakers on Lido that have control. There is nothing that says you need to have ETH staked to own LDO governance token. You could, theoretically, exert massive control over the entire ETH network just by owning LDO.

This is a massive issue in general and one I don't think enough people are talking about. Here's a wild example: Everyone knows of [Lido.fi](https://Lido.fi) \- the largest ETH staking pool/DAO Currently 30%+ of all staked ETH is on lido (90% of all liquid staking). You might think that's not a problem given it's a DAO but the token Lido uses for their governance is LDO and that is so centralized it's not even funny: [https://imgur.com/xsQpyVS](https://imgur.com/xsQpyVS) Just 18 accounts are holding 68% of all governance tokens for LDO and in turn have control over 30% of ALL STAKED ETH - 4,126,017 ETH as of today. This is such an issue that new LDO governance proposal has been made: [https://research.lido.fi/t/ldo-steth-dual-governance/2382](https://research.lido.fi/t/ldo-steth-dual-governance/2382) To try and de-centralize the voting power of LDO holders by introducing dual governance. This would mean that staked eth holders (the liquid staking token given to ETH stakers on Lido) would be able to have a say in governance and protocol procedures. The "Cartilization" of governance and dangers of liquid staking is something that Ethereum dev Danny Ryan wrote about in this blog post: (It's not super long and it's a really interesting read so I would encourage people to do so.) [https://notes.ethereum.org/@djrtwo/risks-of-lsd](https://notes.ethereum.org/@djrtwo/risks-of-lsd) >“Staked ETH can always exit in the event of malicious governance” is not actually technically true today and is not certain to be true in the future. The validator’s active key is the only key allowed to exit from staking in the current Ethereum PoS design. Although there are a number of proposals to add the feature for BLS and smart contract withdrawal credentials to initiate exits, these are not yet agreed upon in either intent or design. This means that, as it stands, ETH holders on Lido could potentially have their ETH "stolen" completely "democratically" by the owners of the DAO governance token LDO as per the governance they agreed to when entering the staking contract. There is no withdrawal consensus mechanism yet and the governance token holders can simply implement one that makes st.ETH worthless.

tldr; Lido is the most-used liquid staking protocol on the Beacon Chain, according to data from Nansen and Etherscan. Lido is a staking-as-a-service provider that allows users to deposit ETH to earn staking rewards on the proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus mechanism. The top 100 holders of LDO, the governance token for the Lido DAO, possess 93.1% of the entire LDO supply. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article.

Lido is a DAO governed by the LDO token. It facilitates liquid staking on a few different PoS chains. It owns 31% of validators because the stETH and wstETH liquid staking derivatives are extremely popular in DeFi, and there's also basically no cap on the amount of ETH that can be staked for stETH. LDO does not have access to the validator keys of the organizations they delegate to for the actual act of staking/validating, so LDO does not directly control these validators. No one staking operator on Ethereum has more than 16% of the stake at this time.

Higher yield, ~6% vs ~4% for just stEth. The vault takes curve stEth/Eth LP tokens which are incentivized with curve and LDO token emissions, and automatically harvests the LP rewards to get more stEth which is compounded in the vault. Since stEth and Eth are highly correlated, there is minimal impermanent loss in providing liquidity.

Lido through their StEth token You can either go through their website to stake directly or exchange eth for StEth through Curve Your amount of StEth will grow daily at a rate of 5% which should increase after the Merge and you can always switch back to Eth through the curve pool. 1Eth=1Steth pretty much. You can also use StEth into other protocols as collateral or staking (Harvest finance, Yearn, soon Aave...) I personally do that and also hold some LDO token GL

havent understood 100% how the APY is calculated tbh. yearn says 6.97% [https://yearn.finance/vaults/0xdCD90C7f6324cfa40d7169ef80b12031770B4325](https://yearn.finance/vaults/0xdCD90C7f6324cfa40d7169ef80b12031770B4325) but if you do the math on curve it should be about 10% (3% fees and 7% LDO) [https://curve.fi/pools](https://curve.fi/pools)? yearn should sell the LDO and CRV tokens and compound back in ETH? Not sure why it is 3% less than. So you see, I'm a noob too. But in any way, you still get the regular Lido rewards for the 50% stETH in the pool. Thats where I am 100% sure :D

steth pool has 2.89% base APY + 0.5% CRV APY + 4.32% LDO APY = 7.71% APY As with most yield farms, you get paid out some (or all) rewards in other tokens than the one you're staking. But since it's paid out continuously you can just swap CRV and LDO for ETH whenever you want.

I would recommend the following (do your own research): 1. Gather (GTH) - generate revenue stream for the publishers without ads by gathering clients processing power and redistributing it as a decentralized cloud service. The idea and the team seems legit. Personally, didn’t encounter any issues or suspicions so far, considering that I am paranoid because I am balls deep in this project. Also, the market cap is really small (around 10m), so even if the project will take shit for some reason, it still has huge upside potential considering the mkt cap. You can find more information on their homepage: gather.network and feel free to ask questions from the team if you have any. 2. Lido (LDO) - First available staking platform for ETH 2.0. The concept seems legit considering that ETH is moving to proof of stake anyway, but the project itself will make more sense once new ETH is finally announced. Market cap relatively small (40m). More information: lido.fi 3. Lukso (LYXe) - a multiverse blockchain infrastructure (layer 1) created by author of ERC20. Market cap around 90m. More information: lukso.network

And I would argue also that custodying it with Celcius Nexo or Blockfi although it has the same custodial risks as Custodial Staking that it is more liquid. I.e. If you deposit 5 ETH, you can withdraw 5ETH with interest. If you stake on lets say Binance with BETH (i.e. Trade ETH to BETH), the value of BETH will not always be at that ratio. Alternatively, you stake with LDO and do the same thing, trade ETH to stETH on Curve (because its usually more value for money), that ratio won't always be 1 to 1

LDO and ALCX, both really undervalued by that metric and both offer pretty unique services. ALCX offers self-paying loans, you stake collateral and can take out a loan of 50% on that. Then the interest from the rest of the collateral pays back what you borrowed. I made a post on the daily earlier about a guy who bought a $25k boat for his parents using an ALCX loan that eventually payed itself back. LDO lets you stake ETH but gives you a stETH token in exchange for the value staked so you can still trade with the value of your staked ETH.
