Liquid restaking

Restake your liquid-staked assets to the EigenLayer smart contracts to earn additional rewards by extending the cryptoeconomic security of the Ethereum network to AVSs.


Liquid restaking is fully managed by the EigenLayer contract, Kiln is providing a user-friendly alternative Dapp to interact and track your Eigenlayer position side by side with your native ETH staking position.

EigenLayer liquid restaking

Liquid restaking is the process of depositing liquid staking tokens (LSTs) into the EigenLayer smart contracts. At this time, the protocol supports the following LSTs:

  • cbETH, osETH, ETHx, wBETH, stETH, rETH, ankrETH, oETH, swETH, mETH, sfrxETH

The protocol plans to support additional liquid staking tokens in the future. If you would like to introduce your LST to the EigenLayer community, please do so on the forum.

Service fees

Kiln is currently not charging service fees on AVS rewards when delegating to kiln's operator.

📙Kiln's liquid restaking flow

You can initiate liquid retaking in a few clicks from Kiln's dapp liquid restaking page.

Here is a video of the process :

1. Select your LST and amount to restake

  • You can restake the following LSTs into EigenLayer pools via the Kiln dApp:

cbETH, osETH, ETHx, wBETH, stETH, rETH, ankrETH, oETH, swETH, mETH, sfrxETH.

  • Choose the LST to restake, and enter the amount you want to restake.

2. Delegate to Kiln's Operator

Kiln's EigenLayer Operator will be selected, featuring all of the currently supported AVSs that this operator is validating. By delegating to Kiln's operator, you will secure all major incoming AVSs that will distribute points and rewards in the next couple of months.

If you wish to select another operator, you can unselect this option, and delegate to another operator throw the EigenDapp later on.

In the case you already delegated to an operator, you will also need to approve a transaction to undelegate your assets, your total restaked balance will be set into pending restaked balance and will not generate any AVS rewards for a 7-day undelegation period, after this you will be able to delegate them to Kiln's operator directly in your portfolio page, or from this same page.

3. Restake

Click on "Restake" to finish the process, it will trigger from 1 to 3 transactions to be signed by your wallet and you can track it in the UI.
