OPUS Pool, powered by Stakewise, enables you to stake any amount of ETH with Chorus One, mint osETH, and directly deposit into EigenLayer in one flow. With the launch of Delegation on Eigenlayer you can now easily delegate your restaked position to Chorus One with a single click of a button.

Not only that, users may bring in liquid staking tokens (LST's) from any external platform, including osETH, wbETH, rETH, cbETH, stETH, oETH , ankrETH , swETH, ETHx, and directly restake with EigenLayer if they wish to do so.

A Note for Investors

Opus Pool brings in a host of benefits for users. Let’s take a brief look at what you stand to gain.

1. Stake any amount of ETH and mint osETH

OPUS Pool enables a user to stake any amount of ETH (no 32 ETH minimum requirements) and receive rewards instantly. Additionally, users have the ability to mint osETH, a liquid staking derivative, and use it in DeFi or deposit into EigenLayer to gain additional rewards directly on OPUS Pool in one go.

2. Low Fees

OPUS Pool sets itself apart from current liquid staking protocols by offering users the advantage of highly competitive staking fees. At just 5%, our fees are among the lowest in the industry, making it more accessible for a broader spectrum of users to stake their ETH and earn rewards.

3. Top-tier MEV Rewards

As pioneers in MEV research, our latest ace, Adagio - an MEV-Boost client, allows for more efficient interactions with Ethereum’s transaction supply chain, directly enhancing MEV rewards for stakers. Fully integrated with OPUS Pool validators, Adagio ensures that anyone staking on OPUS Pool can benefit from these increased MEV rewards.

4. Restake osETH, stETH, cbETH, rETH with EigenLayer in One Go.

OPUS Pool offers a unique feature: users can deposit not only osETH minted through OPUS Pool but also liquid staking derivatives like stETH, cbETH, and rETH minted on other platforms, directly into EigenLayer.

A Note for Institutions

‍ The OPUS SDK: In addition to the benefits mentioned above, our Institutional clients can leverage the OPUS SDK to integrate ETH staking directly into their UI, providing their customers with all the benefits of the OPUS Pool seamlessly. To know more, please reach out to
