Ooki Updates: wstETH


Harnessing wstETH and Ethereum 2.0 Staking

The transition to Ethereum 2.0's Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism has opened up new staking opportunities. When investors stake ETH, they receive stETH (staked Ether) as a representation of their staked assets, which entitles them to the corresponding rewards. However, the limited compatibility of stETH with DeFi protocols led to the creation of wstETH (wrapped staked Ether), an ERC-20 token that represents stETH on a 1:1 ratio. With wstETH, investors can interact with DeFi platforms while still earning staking rewards.

You can wrap your stETH on Lido.

Ooki's wstETH/ETH Margin Trading: Amplify Your Gains

Ooki is thrilled to offer wstETH/ETH margin trading, enabling users to leverage their positions up to 10x for maximum potential gains and active market participation. This feature exclusively supports long positions, using wstETH as collateral for added security and stability. For more flexibility, users can deposit either wstETH or ETH when opening a position and take profits exclusively in ETH when closing, providing liquidity and versatility to their investment strategies.

Profitability and Liquidity Pool Support

The wstETH/ETH margin trading offering allows users to capitalize on market trends, potentially increasing profitability. When the value of the wstETH/ETH pair rises, long positions can become more profitable, encouraging market participation and portfolio expansion. Traders could also speculate on a depegging of (w)stETH or on a pegging if it already depegged (attention ETH maxis 👀).

Moreover, Ooki's wstETH/ETH margin trading supports the liquidity pool, a critical component of a thriving crypto ecosystem. Active trading using wstETH and ETH reinforces the liquidity pool, promoting a robust marketplace for all participants.
