Ankr Staking aims to bring the benefits of DeFi to the masses with the following solutions.
Liquid Staking extends the Staking experience to solve the problem of loss of liquidity and capital inefficiency. When assets are staked, they are usually locked up on-chain helping to maintain the network. However, Liquid Staking provides instant access to Liquid Staking tokens that are equivalent in value to the stake in a 1:1 ratio. These portable Liquid Staking tokens e.g. aMATICb, aETHb, aETHc, aAVAXb can be utilized on additional DeFi platforms to earn further rewards.
The clear benefits of Ankr Liquid Staking are:
- Minimum commitment costs
- Immediate access to liquidity
- Transfer of risks to Ankr experts
