Are there any commissions in the LSD network?
The LSD Network deployer can set the commission parameters for node runner revenue. It can be queried any time from the Wizard SDK so that a node runner is happy to accept the commission before staking their 4 ETH. Commissions can be disabled by setting it to 0%.
Is there any staking limit?
The minimum staking limit is 0.001 ETH. There is no maximum limit to stake in a Giant Pool. At any point LSD Networks utilize ETH from the pool for its validators on three-tier batches, for every validator maximum ETH allowance is set as follows: 4 (from Fees and MEV pool), 4(by node operator) and 24 (from Protected Staking pool).
How much ETH do I need to deploy my own LSD network?
Deploying an LSD Network does not require any ETH apart from gas fees to deploy.
Can I become a node operator with less than 4 ETH?
Yes. A group of users can pool their ETH to run a validator. This feature is not default in the LSD Network, but users are free to do so.
Does the DAO or the LSD network owner have direct access to the funds in the pool?
No. Every ETH deposited must be associated with a BLS public key. The LSD Network owner has the authority to manage node operator whitelisting and smart wallet. Funds in the pool can only be used to stake a validator. Stakehouse has no access to funds.
Am I allowed to leave the LSD network?
Every user has the right to leave an LSD network at any time. A depositor or staker can sell their LP tokens to someone else or burn them to redeem ETH or dETH. A node operator can withdraw their ETH (as long as it’s associated BLS public key is not staked). Once a node operator has withdrawn the ETH, the LSD Network will quarantine the BLS public key associated with that specific deposit. Also, depositors who bought LP tokens for this BLS Public key can rotate their tokens to a new BLS public key. After the node operator’s BLS public key is staked, he can opt to Rage Quit.
My validator has been staked but my LP tokens are still not earning rewards.
The Ethereum consensus layer has a dynamic queue for validator activation. If your validator status is active, check that derivatives for that validator have been minted to reflect the earnings on LP tokens.
Should I stake via the Giant Pools or an LSD Network specific pool? Which is better?
In both cases the pools will be used for ETH staking and the user will receive LP tokens upon depositing. If an LSD Pool doesn’t have enough ETH, Giant Pools can provide the difference. LSD pools will ask depositors which BLS public key they want to stake with; The Giant Pool does not. Always, verify the address of the LSD Pool before depositing ETH.
Can I restrict my LSD Network to run only certified or trusted validators?
Yes, if you deployed the LSD Network and you have the rights. DAOs or the LSD deployers can set whitelisting to true. This will make sure that only the addresses provided by the DAO or the LSD deployer can become node operators. They also have the authority to remove particular addresses from the whitelist status. Additionally, Gatekeeping can be activated to prevent KNOTs from outside of the LSD Network from joining the house created by the LSD Network.
What happens to my LP tokens when the validator Rage Quits?
As long as the user holds on to their LP tokens, they can be redeemed for ETH or dETH. When a validator Rage Quits, all the LP token holders can claim rewards based on their share and burn the LP tokens.
If I create an LSD Network, do I need to find my own liquidity?
If you are facing difficulty getting liquidity directly in your LSD Pools, then you can source liquidity from the Giant Pools. The Giant Pools have ETH from depositors that need an LSD Network. This is an opportunity for any LSD Network which is short of ETH. One of the main stipulations: you must deploy an LSD Network from the LSDN Factory.
