Challenges with Restaking Protocols

The rapid growth of restaking protocols within the EigenLayer ecosystem has been a boon for users, offering a diverse range of options and strategies. However, this abundance of choices has also introduced new challenges:

  • Decision Fatigue: Evaluating multiple platforms with varying features, risk profiles, fee structure, and yield projections can be overwhelming, leading to decision fatigue. Users are faced with the daunting task of comparing and contrasting a multitude of options, often without clear guidance.

  • Multiple Liquid Staking Tokens: Not all protocols support every token. Got ETH? You're limited to a few restaking protocols. ETHx? Different options.

  • Double Staking Hurdles: To maximize yield, you need to liquid stake first, approve the liquid staking token, and then restake it on a restaking protocol. That's three steps, three transactions, and a whole lot of gas fees.

These challenges highlight the need for a solution that aggregates, analyzes, and presents information about restaking protocols in a clear, concise, and user-friendly manner. StakeEase emerges as a potential answer to this call, offering a holistic approach to navigating the EigenLayer landscape and empowering users to make informed decisions.
