Liquid Collective's Latest

Now live: Ethereum staking withdrawals on the Liquid Collective protocol

LsETH redemptions have been deployed

The contracts allowing stakers to redeem LsETH for ETH via the Liquid Collective protocol are now live, marking a significant step forward for the protocol's liquidity and capital efficiency.

By design, Liquid Collective's automatic restaking of consensus and execution layer network rewards increases the protocol's staking efficiency by maximizing the number of validators in the active set, removing the pain point of manually automating this process for stakers. Seamless redemptions of LsETH for ETH are enabled by Liquid Collective's ETH deposit and redemption buffers, allowing flows in and out of the protocol to be managed efficiently between Ethereum's execution and consensus layers.

Learn more about the ETH staking withdrawal implementation in our post, or in the Alluvial team's press release. For a deep-dive join our virtual event on Thursday, or check out the technical documentation here.
