One-click staking
One-click staking relies on converting ETH for osETH, a liquid staking token of StakeWise. You will accrue ETH staking rewards by holding osETH in a wallet or in a smart contract.
osETH can be converted back into ETH at any time to receive the deposit and accumulated rewards.

How to stake ETH with one click (coming soon)

  1. 1.
    Head to the Stake page in the StakeWise dApp and connect your wallet.
  2. 2.
    Enter the amount of ETH you would like to stake. The interface will show the amount of osETH tokens you will receive in return.
  3. 3.
    Note that the conversion ratio between osETH and ETH is >1 because osETH continuously accumulates staking rewards.
  4. 4.
    Press Deposit and confirm the transaction in your wallet.
  5. 5.
    Once the transaction is confirmed on the blockchain, you will receive osETH in your wallet and begin staking.
Staking with Vaults
Staking with Vaults allows you to pick the specific terms on which your ETH will be staked, including the node operators that will run validators, relays used for MEV, and the staking fee.
By staking in a particular Vault, you will earn ETH staking rewards only from that Vault's validators. You can unstake from a Vault at any time to receive the deposit and accumulated rewards.
Your stake in any Vault can be made liquid by minting osETH, a liquid staking token.

How to stake with Vaults

    Head to the Vault Marketplace page in the StakeWise dApp and connect your wallet.

How to make your stake in the Vault liquid

  4. 4.
    Note that the maximum value of osETH you can mint is set to 90% of your stake in the Vault. The profitability of your stake in the Vault is not reduced to the proportion you choose and remains fully intact.
  5. 5.
    Press the Mint button and confirm the transaction in your wallet.
  6. 6.
    Once the transaction is confirmed on the blockchain, you will start liquid staking.
Liquid solo staking
Liquid solo staking works by creating a Vault with desired parameters (e.g. MEV smoothing) and staking your ETH in it, triggering the launch of solo validators on your node.
By staking in your Vault, you will earn ETH staking rewards only from your solo validators. You can unstake from your Vault at any time to receive the deposit and accumulated rewards.
Your stake in the Vault can be made liquid by minting osETH, a liquid staking token.
