Where can I buy stETH?

Always check that the token address matches what’s listed here. You can use any token listed on Sushi to purchase stETH as the Sushi Routing system will ensure a trade if at all possible.

How can I see stETH in my MetaMask wallet?

To see the token in MetaMask, you need to add it as custom token in “Assets” “Add Token” → “Custom Token” and enter the token address 0xdfe66b14d37c77f4e9b180ceb433d1b164f0281d.

How do I become a stETH Liquidity Provider?

You can earn fees from traders buying and selling stETH by becoming a Liquidity Provider on Uniswap. To do so you will need stETH and ETH in equal amounts in terms of their value. Once you have that, you can add your tokens to the liquidity pool at the following address https://app.uniswap.org/#/add/ETH/0xdfe66b14d37c77f4e9b180ceb433d1b164f0281d

Will I have to claim stETH rewards manually, or will they be automatically received?

stETH staking rewards will be distributed daily automatically. stETH placed in liquidity pools will also be earning these rewards. You don’t have to take additional action to receive the rewards.

Why won’t I see additional transactions of stETH staking rewards?

stToken holders will not see transactions of reward distribution as it is done through a rebase mechanism. Rebase refers to having an elastic token supply that adjusts according to specific metrics. In this case, stETH’s total supply updates automatically according to the number of ETH staked through StakeHound. When ETH staking rewards are received, leading to an increase of ETH staked, the total stETH supply is also increased accordingly. 

If Adam was holding onto 10 stETH and the total ETH staked saw a 5% increase (due to rewards), Adam will now see 10.5 stETH in his holdings – whether it’s in his wallet or in an AMM liquidity pool.

If I’m already staking, how is this any different?

As there is no way to unstake your ETH holdings until the docking on Beacon Chain has been merged, holding stETH now would mean you’ll now have the flexibility to earn rewards, trade, hold, or do more such as yield farming, lending and borrowing, in the DeFi space.

How can I make the best out of stETH?

There are various ways to do this.
1. You can hold stETH to earn staking rewards.
2. On top of holding, you can also provide liquidity to stETH (-stFIRO/-stZEN/-WETH) pools. By providing liquidity to a multi-stakedToken pool (eg. stETH-stZEN), you’ll earn staking rewards from both stTokens.
3. With the LP token, you can farm it on SushiSwap (Onsen farms).

This means that you will be earning (1) Staking Rewards, (2) Trading fees, and (3) Sushi rewards = potentially 20-30% APY.

Quick math
stETH Staking rewards: +7%
Liquidity provision on Sushi: +0.25% fee on all trades proportionate to your pool share
WETH-stETH Onsen farm: +20%
Total rewards: 27.25% APY*
