The Lido staking protocol applies a 10% fee (this can be changed by the DAO) on staking rewards that are split between node operators, the DAO, and a slashing insurance fund. The Lido DAO accrues value through staking rewards with the DAO receiving 5% of all staking rewards in real-time.

For a more detailed explanation on LDO read our Lido Primer.
