We’ve distilled everything you need to know about the upgrade - and why it’s so significant in the ETH staking ecosystem.
Lido V2 brings two vital components to the Lido protocol: withdrawals and the staking router.
Impact on Ethereum Staking
The Lido V2 upgrade positively impacts the Ethereum staking landscape:
