Improving Capital Efficiency of Staking

Quick Take

  • Liquid staking and superfluid staking are some of the typical methods to improve the capital efficiency of staking.
  • Cross-staking enables the same capital to be staked simultaneously over a theoretically infinite number of venues. 
  • The Avalanche network is a prime example of cross-staking, although such feature is not widely utilized currently.
  • EigenLayer could bring cross-staking to Ethereum without modifying the base layer, where staked ether can also be used to secure other protocols simultaneously.
