Supercharge Your Polkadot (DOT) Yields with Lido’s stDOT Farm on StellaSwap
After months of planning and discussions with Lido/Mixbytes, we’re elated to announce that our stDOT farm is finally live! 🔥 You can start supercharging your DOT yields by staking into StellaSwap’s stDOT — wstDOT farm, earning;
⭐️ Polkadot’s Proof-of-Stake (POS) staking yields
⭐️ Trading fees from stDOT trading
⭐️ Triple-rewards from farm emissions (GLMR + LDO + STELLA)
What is stDOT/wstDOT?
stDOT is a liquid token that represents your share of the total DOT.xc pool deposited with Lido. As soon as you delegate to the pool, you receive the newly minted stDOT. Over time, as your DOT delegation accrues rewards, the amount of your stDOT increases. Interestingly, there is no waiting time for receiving stDOT tokens. When a user delegates their DOT tokens, they do not need to perform or wait for the completion of any delegation or activation steps, as is the norm in traditional staking. The user can instantly exchange stDOT for DOT.xc at any time in the open market.
wstDOT is simply a wrapper to allow for the usage of stDOT across DeFi protocols on Moonbeam. You can get wstDOT by wrapping stDOT on StellaSwap: https://app.stellaswap.com/exchange/swap
