What is the difference between liquid staking & self-staking?

Liquid staking eliminates many inconveniences associated with self-staking.

Updated over a week ago

Ethereum is soon to be the biggest staking economy in the space. However, staking on ETH requires expert knowledge and complex and costly infrastructure. There are several reasons why - the main being the fact that slashing and offline penalties can get very severe if the staking is managed improperly. In addition to this, self-staking brings with it a minimum deposit of 32 ETH and a token lock-up which could last years.
