At the present moment in time, Lido V2 is positioned live on the Ethereum mainnet. In the scenario of a significant upscaling of the Lido protocol, Lido V2 is able to help in the overall enhancement of the Ethereum staking exposure and simultaneously thrust the Lido protocol in the direction of added protocol decentralization. Lido V2 brings with itself two prime segments, out of which the more important one remains the Ethereum withdrawals. This provides the opportunity for Ethereum stakes connected with Lido to be able to un-stake ETH with the help of the protocol.
The upscaling on the Lido V2 opens the doors to an entire array of fresh functions on the platform and contains two prime factors. The first is concerned with withdrawals, wherein Ethereum stakers are able to burn their stETH and leave the protocol, having a 1:1 ratio. The second is the staking router, which is the latest modular framework design. This provides the opportunity for the creation of on-ramps, in terms of node operators, starting from single stakers and moving on to DAOs, as well as Validator Technology (DVT) clusters. There is also the rewriting of the Oracle smart contract and off-chain daemon software.
In a significant move, Lido V2 brings about further functions in terms of in-protocol ETH withdrawals. This helps in narrowing down the Lido staking exposure and provides the option for users to be able to un-stake their ETH from the Lido protocol. This, in turn, helps in lessening the past hiccups related to the Lido on Ethereum staking exposure and provides a more effective usage of Lido’s staked ETH over the entire Ethereum DeFi ecosystem.
In order to increase the dependability factor, Lido V2 passed through various safety audits. Some of these had Sigma Prime, which carried out an audit on the updated dc4bc version, along with Chain Security, which audited the staking router code, and also auditing was conducted by such names as Oxorio, as well as Statemind, HEXENS, MixBytes, and Certora. This upscaling carried out on the protocol helped Lido on Ethereum become a feature full by providing stETH to Ether withdrawals. This laid the pathway for experimenting, as well as associating with the staking router framework. In the days to come, they will continue with their endeavor to make provisions for a safe and dependable protocol for staking ETH.
