Users can now stake their Ethereum with Lido using Ledger Live! Lido is a liquid staking solution that allows stakers to participate with the DeFi ecosystem whilst staking their Ethereum on the beacon chain. This is done through the use of Lido’s stETH token, a liquid variant of staked Ethereum that rebases daily to reflect staking rewards.

Users can use their stETH in a variety of DeFi protocols.

Ledger wallets are hardware wallets that allow for secure storage of cryptocurrencies. Hardware wallets guarantee a sense of security, mitigating risks associated with other wallets that are vulnerable to malicious attacks. Do not share your private keys with anyone.
