What is liquid staking?


Liquid staking is a rapidly growing alternative to locking up a user's tokens and contributing to the security of proof of stake blockchains. Whereas traditional methods of staking are subject to bonding and unbonding periods (ranging from days to weeks), liquid staking provides stakers with increased liquidity and capital efficiency. Token holders stake their token and receive a receipt token as evidence of their ownership of their staked token. The receipt token can be transferred, stored, traded, and utilized in DeFi or supported dapps.
