Why the Excitement around Restaking with Soaring TVL?

The staking and restaking ecosystems have gradually taken shape as a big trend in the upcoming crypto bull run. Meanwhile, teams behind EigenLayer and Puffer boasting many core members of the Ethereum Foundation and major participants, such as top VCs, are jointly driving the new narrative.

What is Restaking?

Restaking refers to simultaneously using your staked cryptocurrencies (i.e. LSTs) to secure more protocols and earn rewards. Restaking, stemming from liquid staking, sets itself apart by providing liquidity for LSTs as well as additional earning opportunities. Leading restaking projects such as EigenLayer facilitate staking LSTs, such as stETH, to earn rewards.

Liquid staking, a way for investors to lock up their cryptocurrencies in exchange for rewards over time, was introduced after Ethereum's adoption of a Proof of Stake (POS) mechanism following the Shanghai upgrade. Projects like Lido utilize stETH to represent the native ETH staking shares, thereby unlocking liquidity from staked assets. LST, on the other hand, stands for Liquid Staking Tokens, issued by projects like Lido, which include tokens such as stETH, cbETH, rETH, etc. These tokens inherently come with APYs. Restaking enables staked assets to be used for more protocols by sharing trust from the Ethereum Beacon staking layer. This not only allows users to earn more rewards but also lets other projects enjoy the same level of consensus and security as the ETH Beacon layer.

These projects adopt staking points to track participants' contributions. As per convention, early contributors are expected to receive these projects' native tokens through initial airdrops based on their contributions after the projects' launch between April and September this year. Airdropping cryptocurrencies before their trading starts has garnered significant attention and popularity in the market.

Unmissable Restaking Airdrop: Get on Board with Top VC Players!

Leading projects, esteemed for their high market capitalization, often distribute lucrative airdrops. These projects have consistently captured the interest and investment of top-tier venture capital firms across multiple funding rounds.

According to reports, EigenLayer has successfully secured multiple rounds of financing, led by Blockchain Capital, with the participation of prominent venture capital firms such as Coinbase Ventures, Polychain Capital, Hack VC, and Electric Capital. Puffer, as a derivative project of EigenLayer, has also garnered significant attention. Notably, it has received backing from the Ethereum Foundation and secured two rounds of funding from institutions like Binance Labs, Jump Crypto, Brevan Howard Digital, Bankless Ventures, and Animoca Ventures, as well as angel investors including Anand Iyer from Lightspeed Partners, Sreeram Kannan (EigenLayer's founder), Frederick Allen (Coinbase's Head of Staking), and F2pool and Cobo. This impressive array of investors underscores the project's substantial potential.

In the BTC sector, competition is fierce, with top projects like Merlin flexing their muscles. Merlin recently wrapped up a financing round in early February with 24 investors onboard, including OKX Ventures, ABCDE, Foresight Ventures, and Arkstream Capital. Likewise, a prominent player in the BTC Layer 1 sector, has garnered support from renowned entities such as Binance Custody, Mainnet Digital, Breyer Capital, and OKX Ventures.

HTX offers you a chance to get on board. Even individuals unfamiliar with on-chain operations can participate by depositing assets into HTX for mining, effortlessly engaging HTX's Liquid Restaking with spot assets, and easily earning airdrop rewards with a snapshot of your Spot account balance.
