Step-by-Step Staking Guide

Step 1 - Liquid Staking your ETH for LST

Head over to your preferred liquid staking platform, In this guide we’re using https://stake.lido.fi/

Connect using the wallet in which you’re holding ETH


Once connected, enter the amount of ETH you want to stake to get liquid staked Ether (Please make sure you have enough ETH left to cover for gas in the next steps)


Confirm the transaction


Wait for confirmation


Once confirmed, you’ll see stETH in your wallet,(If you don’t see stETH, then you can add manually on MetaMask using “import token”)


Now, you have successfully staked your ETH and now have and LST (Liquid Staked Token). In the next steps we will restake this LST into the EigenLayer app

Step 2 - Restaking your LST into EigenLayer

To restake your LST into EigenLayer, head over to the official EigenLayer app (https://app.eigenlayer.xyz/ )
