Understanding Restaking

What Is Restaking?

Restaking is an innovative capital management method in the cryptocurrency staking ecosystem, allowing users to reinvest their cryptos that have staked on a protocol for rewards to more staking protocols for enhanced capital efficiency and potential gains.

Restaking boasts many advantages, foremost among them being the optimization of capital utilization. By choosing Restaking, users can engage in multiple staking projects without the need to unlock and transfer assets they have already staked, while not compromising the security and rewards of the staking they engaged in. As a result, users can diversify their income sources while maintaining their contribution to network consensus.

Simply put, Restaking offers a new avenue for stakers to earn additional income while bolstering the security and stability of multiple networks.

We can illustrate Restaking with an example from daily life:

Imagine you have deposits in a savings account at a bank, which provides you with asset certificates. Then you return these certificates to the bank, allowing it to manage your deposits. These deposits not only ensure the safety of your assets but can also be utilized for loans or investments to generate interest or returns. The idea of Restaking mirrors this process, albeit in crypto or blockchain networks.

Why Restaking? The advantages are numerous:

  • You gain additional liquidity with your crypto assets. Similar to banks, decentralized finance platforms use your cryptos for lending, thereby earning you additional crypto assets.

  • You boost profits by investing or trading with borrowed cryptos. This approach allows you to seize more opportunities and achieve asset appreciation.

  • You earn interest or returns as a reward for Restaking. Similar to the interest in a savings account, cryptos in Restaking generates returns as your reward.

However, Restaking faces a major challenge: liquidity. After being Restaked, the staker's assets are locked up in the nodes and cannot be used for other investments or trading.

To tackle this challenge, HTX's Liquid Restaking provides greater flexibility compared to on-chain Restaking. So, what are the advantages of HTX Liquid Restaking compared to on-chain Restaking?

1. Simplicity, Accessibility, and Lower Risk. Users can participate with a simple click on the event page. HTX guarantees that during this event, regardless of any potential on-chain risks, user assets will always be safeguarded.

2. Excellent Asset Liquidity. Users are not required to stake any assets to participate in Liquid Restaking, and their participation in the event will not affect the trading of their assets. Additionally, users can earn staking rewards across different chains depending on the assets they hold.

3. Flexible Earnings. With daily snapshots of spot accounts, even short-term holders have the opportunity to earn rewards. As HTX supports more cryptos for Restaking, users can receive daily staking rewards regardless of the form of their assets on the platform.

What Are the Points Obtained from Liquid Restaking Used for?

LRS points can be redeemed for corresponding rewards: LRS-BTC for Merlin Chain and BounceBit airdrops; LRS-ETH for EigenLayer and Puffer airdrops; (Please note the actual airdrop rewards are subject to rewards provided by these projects.) LRS-USDT, LRS-TRX, and LRS-HTX for corresponding tokens.

Please refer to the official announcements for details. The redemption of LRS-USDT, LRS-TRX, and LRS-HTX points will be available soon, while LRS-BTC and LRS-ETH points can be redeemed within 14 days after the start of the on-chain project airdrops, estimated after April 2024, depending on the on-chain airdrop schedule. The rewards will be credited to participants' Spot accounts.

Points for a specific cryptocurrency that a user can receive are calculated using the following formula: Points = Distribution amount on the day * Amount of snapshotted cryptocurrency held by the user / Amount of all participants' assets snapshotted. In simpler terms, you'll receive more points with larger spot asset or earlier registration.
