Staking offers stable return with comparatively low risk. But not many people know we can leverage DeFi lending to achieve 2x staking yield on our staked funds!

It is glad to see Liqee announced their collateral support to wstETH, meaning that we can use wstETH as collateral to borrow ETH, and mint more wstETH for leveraged staking yields!

How Does it Work?

  1. Wrap ETH into wstETH directly through Lido and gain immediate access to staking yield which is 4.9% APY at the time of writing.
  2. Go to Liqee Lending and supply wstETH as collateral.
  3. Borrow ETH from Liqee Lending.
  4. Mint more wstETH from Lido.
  5. Repeat previous steps to earn up to 2x staking yield.

What’s the Catch?

Gentle Reminder:

  1. wstETH’s LTV is 70%, meaning that you can borrow up to 70 ETH against 100 wstETH (it is recommended to borrow below ‘Safe Max’ to reduce the possibility of liquidation)
  2. Supply wstETH to borrow ETH is immune to price swings as both assets track the price of ETH.
  3. Borrowing interest will be paid in the same type of assets (i.e., borrow ETH, interest also needs to be paid in ETH), so it will produce a slow growth of outstanding loans. So, participants must:
  • Always keep the Adequacy Ratio above 1 to avoid loan delinquency which may trigger liquidation of your collateralized wstETH with 10% discount.
  • Please also take into consideration of the borrowing interest when you calculate the total combine yield from leveraged staking.
