Informal Staking has been a validator on Stride Network since November 2022. Here at Informal Staking we believe in a responsible approach to liquid staking. The team at stride is not only the first liquid staking protocol available in Cosmos, but they also have had the most number of security audits.
STRD is the token that secures the Stride network. It is used as a token to vote on governance proposals. stTokens are the functional token used to take advantage of the Stride liquid staking process. Stride aims to have stTokens available for every Cosmos chain using IBC V3 in the future.
Stride aims to provide liquid staking to all chains in the Cosmos ecosystem. It is a liquid staking zone allowing delegators to earn their staking yield while earning additional yield through lending, LPing, and more. When you stake with stride you will receive “stTokens”. These can be traded, and redeemed for your original tokens at any time!
