A guide to using Beethoven X - the Optimism-based AMM.

Updated over a week ago

Beethoven X is an Optimism-based AMM and DeFi platform, built as a fork of the Balancer protocol. Beethoven X allows you to invest, swap and stake your tokens at the click of a button, all whilst benefitting from the low fees of Ethereum L2.

For Lido users, you can use Beethoven X to switch between wstETH, WETH, LDO and USD. On top of this, users can earn fees from LP'ing a number of pools including:

  • wstETH-WETH

  • wstETH-LDO

  • wstETH-wUSD-wBTC

Guide to Beethoven X Swaps

Use Swaps on Beethoven X for easy swapping with low slippage and even lower fees.

Before proceeding, you need to bridge your tokens to Optimism. To do so, check out the following guide: Bridging wstETH to Optimism.
