We’re ecstatic to partner with Lido and Beefy to finally facilitate the trading of Lido’s native token, LDO! 🔥 This has been long overdue, as liquidity providers on Curve had previously no avenue to trade their earned LDO rewards. This partnership trifecta made up of the largest protocols on Moonbeam would allow users to trade LDO as well as auto-compound their LDO liquidity.

The LDO farm will be live on StellaSwap on 22 Aug, 14:00 UTC.

State of LDO on Moonbeam

At the start of June, Lido finance announced the launch of their stDOT-DOT farm on Moonbeam via Curve. Liquidity providers who staked in their pool would earn LDO, the native token of Lido.

Since then, users who’ve earned LDO rewards couldn’t really trade or do anything since an LDO farm didn’t exist. Here’s a breakdown of LDO on Moonbeam;

  • Current LDO Supply on Moonbeam: 314,455 LDO (~$600k)
  • No. of LDO Holders on Moonbeam: 585 Addresses

The absence of an LDO farm meant that LDO holders on Moonbeam are forced to bridge their LDO token away from Moonbeam or just hold on to it without doing anything.

Trifecta of Goodness

We have been closely working with Beefy and Lido to facilitate LDO trading on Moonbeam. As the largest DEX on Moonbeam, we’re proud to be able to work with them in actualizing a highly-awaited farm. The scope of this trilateral partnership manifests in the following way;

  1. LDO farm launch on StellaSwap
  2. Launch of automated LDO farm (StellaSwap LP) on Beefy

Launch of LDO Farm on StellaSwap

StellaSwap will launch a standard LDO farm, with Lido and Beefy providing an initial liquidity of $10,000 into the farm. Additionally, Lido will provide an initial $5,000 worth of LDO incentives to attract users to stake into the farm.

Here are the details of the farm:

⭐️ Farm Launch: LDO— GLMR
⭐️ Farm Type: Dual-Rewards
⭐️ Reward Token: STELLA + LDO
⭐️ Launch Date: 22 August| 14:00 UTC

Auto-Compounding LDO Farm on Beefy

Shortly after the LDO farm on StellaSwap, Beefy will launch the LDO farm to allow users to auto-compound their rewards into their LP. Beefy will launch the LDO farm using StellaSwap’s LDO LP. Instead of manually compounding their rewards, Beefy provides an automated way for users to optimize their returns.
