Meet Stader Labs, the non-custodial multi-chain liquid staking platform that's transforming the liquid staking landscape!

With over $120 million in assets staked and more than 40k users across 6 chains, Stader has partnered with 40+ top DeFi protocols like Aave, Balancer, etc. You can also stake your MATIC and BNB with Stader directly from Ledger Live.

Backed by some of the biggest names in the world of crypto, Stader’s multiple audits with top security firms, million dollar bug bounties and real-time monitoring with Forta is a testimony to their emphasis on security and safety.

Gear up for the launch of ETHx, Stader's liquid staking token on Ethereum!

ETHx is designed to maximize rewards, all while securing Ethereum.

With Stader, you can run an Ethereum node with just 4 ETH, which is 85% lower capital and 35% higher returns vs solo-staking. ETHx has a multi-pool architecture with permissionless and permissioned node operators to enable decentralization and scalability, with a roadmap for DVT.

Leveraging on their experience with unlocking great DeFi utility on other chains, Stader is actively building integrations and partnerships on Ethereum to bring similar utility to the ETHx token, with $1Mn SD in DeFi rewards.

Check out ETHx and sign up to get access to the Stader staking protocol.
