MetaMask is the world’s leading Web3 wallet directly supporting multi EVM-compatible chains. It allows users to access their wallet through a browser extension or mobile app, which can then be used to interact with Dapps.

MetaMask currently supports a number of networks, including Ethereum, Arbitrum, Optimism, Polygon, Mantle and more.

Lido has been integrated into the MetaMask Portfolio Dapp letting users stake their Ethereum (ETH) with Lido directly through MetaMask.

Staking on MetaMask

Staking your ETH on MetaMask is simple and can be done in just a few clicks. After staking you will receive Lido's stETH token which represents your share of staked ETH.

Your balance of stETH will increase every 24 hours as new staking rewards come in.

To start staking, follow the steps below:

  1. Visit the MetaMask Portfolio Dapp. On the browser extension, select ‘Portfolio view’ after clicking on the top right corner button.

  2. Connect your MetaMask wallet.

  3. Go to the staking tab on the left bar.

  4. Select “Lido Staked ETH” and click “Stake”.

  5. Enter the amount you want to stake and click “Review”.

  6. Review the stake and click “Confirm”.

  7. Sign the transaction on the wallet.

After the transaction is confirmed, you will be able to view your stETH in your wallet.

Track your staking rewards

Your balance of stETH grows over time with new staking rewards coming in every 24 hours.

To track your staked ETH, follow the steps below:

  1. Visit the Portfolio Dapp. On the browser extension, you can click the ‘Portfolio site’.

  2. Connect your MetaMask wallet.

  3. Toggle to the staking tab.

On the Stake page you will be able to see your current balance of stETH, as well as your lifetime rewards earned from holding stETH.

Note that stETH is a rebasing token, with the balance increasing on a daily basis to reflect newly earned staking rewards. For more information, visit what is stETH.
