$EIGEN Staking Guide

Post preview image

EIGEN stakedrop claims are open. Season 1 starts with 6.05% of the initial supply ready to claim. Eigen Foundation has already announced the next stakedrop season plans and is considering distributing 8.95% of the initial token supply for ecosystem participation.

This guide will explain how to participate in the ecosystem and secure EigenDA and other AVS that will soon accept $EIGEN as staking collateral.

How to choose the operator for $EIGEN

While $EIGEN can secure ONLY EigenDA it doesn't matter how many AVS supports your operator (because your $EIGEN stake won't participate in securing other AVS except EigenDA). A few considerations to take into account:

  1. It's important that the operator plans to onboard more AVS using $EIGEN, which is coming according to EigenLayer announcements.
  2. you can delegate all your staked assets only to one operator, including restated natively ETH, LST, and $EIGEN. Therefore, if you already opted in for some operator previously, you don't need to do that again; after depositing $EIGEN to the EigenLayer smart contracts, it will be automatically delegated to an operator you have already chosen.
  3. since you can't choose separate operators for your restaked ETH and $EIGEN, in case you have restaked $ETH it makes sense to opt-in operator best suited both for restaked ETH and restaked $EIGEN

Two options if you decided to stake with P2P.org

  1. Renzo x P2P.org operator for ONLY $EIGEN restaking. - supports all intersubjective AVSes. It's only EigenDA now, but expecting more in the near future. On top of that, this operator has an additional incentive from our partner Renzo - 100 ezPoints for every 100 $EIGEN staked.

  2. P2P.org [all AVS] operator for ETH and $EIGEN restaking. It doesn't have a Renzo ezPoints incentive, but supports all AVS securing both your ETH and $EIGEN stake, thus maximizing your farming opportunities.
