Liquid Collective's Latest


Twinstake joins Liquid Collective as Integrator to offer institutional liquid staking

Twinstake joins Liquid Collective as Integrator to offer institutional liquid staking

Twinstake, a leading institutional-grade, non-custodial staking provider, has joined Liquid Collective as an Integrator to provide enterprise-grade Ethereum liquid staking to its institutional clients. Twinstake's clients, primarily institutional entities looking to participate in web3, will benefit from the integration with access to a non-custodial liquid staking token, LsETH, that meets enterprise-grade compliance needs, including KYC/AML on all protocol participants, known staking counterparties, and built-in slashing coverage.

Learn more in Twinstake’s Integrator announcement.


I am thrilled to announce our integration with Liquid Collective, a leading institutional liquid staking solution. By integrating with Liquid Collective, Twinstake is able to expand its product offering and take the next step in fulfilling our mission of institutionalising the infrastructure, processes and workflows surrounding digital assets.

Andrew Gibb, COO/CFO at Twinstake



Liquid Staking Ethereum with the Figment App - Liquid Collective

Figment provides LsETH integration via the Figment app

Figment, already a Liquid Collective Node Operator and a leading provider of staking infrastructure with over $3B in total assets staked, has expanded their support of the protocol as an Integrator to offer enterprise-grade liquid staking to their users outside of the U.S. As a non-custodial Integrator, Figment’s users, including over 250 institutional clients, can connect the wallet of their choosing to stake ETH and mint LsETH via Figment’s integrations with WalletConnect and Metamask.

Watch Figment’s video “Liquid Staking Ethereum with the Figment app - The Complete Liquid Collective LsETH Staking Guide” to get started, or read their “Liquid Collective: First Look” article to learn more.



The Liquid Collective protocol's source code is now fully public

By making the Liquid Collective protocol's source code public we aim to encourage greater collaboration while increasing transparency

We are excited to announce that the Liquid Collective protocol's code is available under the Business Source License 1.1 (BUSL-1.1). This means that anyone can now access the code to contribute to the development of the protocol, or to build their own decentralized applications connecting with the Liquid Collective ecosystem.

The Business Source License 1.1 (BUSL-1.1) is the same license used by Uniswap V3 and other leading decentralized protocols. The BUSL license grants the right to copy, modify, create derivative works, redistribute, and make non-production use of the code, and will automatically transition to a full open-source license, GPLv3, in 2026. We invite developers, entrepreneurs, and innovators to explore the Liquid Collective protocol's code and contribute to its development.

Learn more in the announcement.
