Blockchain TechnologyAlchemy Pay Now Offers Fiat On-Ramp for stETH on Lido

We’re thrilled to announce our integration with Lido, the decentralized staking protocol enabling users to earn daily staking rewards on their Ethereum, where we proudly serve as the fiat On-Ramp provider. Through this collaboration, Lido has integrated Alchemy Pay’s efficient On and Off-Ramp services within its ecosystem, allowing users worldwide to easily purchase and sell $stETH using their preferred payment methods and local fiat currencies.

As part of this collaboration, users can directly purchase $stETH, the Lido’s liquid variant of staked ETH, with fiat on Alchemy Pay’s ramp page. The $stETH balance grows daily with staking rewards and plays a pivotal role in engaging in DeFi activities such as providing liquidity on protocols like Curve and serving as collateral for loans on Aave.

Lido is the name of a family of open-source peer-to-system software tools deployed and functioning on the Ethereum, and Polygon blockchain networks. Lido enables users to mint transferable staking tokens, which receive rewards linked to the related validator activities of the blockchain. The Lido protocols batch user tokens to stake with validators and route the staking packages to network staking contracts. Currently, the total staked tokens on Lido stand at $29.7 billion.
