What is Lido DAO?

Lido is a decentralized finance (DeFi) protocol that offers a liquid staking solution for Ethereum (ETH) holders. With the launch of Ethereum 2.0 and its shift from a Proof of Work (PoW) to a Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism, users can stake their ETH to help secure the network and earn rewards. However, staking in Ethereum 2.0 has some limitations, such as a minimum staking requirement and long lockup periods. Lido addresses these challenges by allowing users to stake any amount of ETH and receive staking derivatives in the form of Lido's native token, stETH, which can be used across various DeFi platforms.

The Lido protocol operates with the help of a decentralized network of node operators responsible for validating transactions and securing the Ethereum 2.0 network on behalf of the stakers. To ensure decentralization and security, Lido employs a robust governance system facilitated by its governance token, LDO. LDO token holders can vote on various proposals related to the protocol, such as adjusting staking fees, selecting node operators, and implementing upgrades. This decentralized governance model ensures that the community has a say in developing and managing the Lido ecosystem.

One of the key benefits of Lido's liquid staking solution is the increased capital efficiency it provides to ETH holders. By minting stETH tokens in a 1:1 ratio with staked ETH, users can continue participating in the DeFi ecosystem without waiting for their staked ETH to become unlocked. This creates opportunities for stETH holders to earn additional yield by using stETH in lending platforms, liquidity pools, or other DeFi applications. Furthermore, Lido's solution contributes to the overall security and decentralization of the Ethereum 2.0 network by making staking more accessible and flexible for a broader range of users.
