PancakeSwap Launches Liquid Staking Integration with Binance Earn – Stake ETH and Receive WBETH to Earn ETH Staking Rewards!

Hey PancakeSwap Community! 🥞

Exciting news! We have partnered with Binance Earn to offer the liquid staking integration for the WBETH (Wrapped Beacon Ethereum) token! This means you can easily convert and swap ETH to WBETH. Our goal at PancakeSwap is to offer a user-friendly and innovative platform for the DeFi space. That's why we’re thrilled to introduce you to all the benefits of this liquid staking integration.

But, what is Liquid Staking?

Liquid staking is a method that enables users to stake while still being able to use or trade their assets through a representative token. This provides both flexibility and access to the funds for other uses while still earning staking rewards. Since the Ethereum network has finished the Merge (i.e. the consensus mechanism of ETH has been upgraded to Proof of Stake), liquid staking offers users the option to stake their ETH to earn rewards. And, unlike traditional staking methods, users can still use and have the liquidity to their ETH while it is being staked. The WBETH token solves this problem.

So, what’s WBETH?

Wrapped Beacon Ethereum (WBETH) is a liquid staking derivative token that represents staked ETH and its rewards. It’s a wrapped version of BETH, created by Binance Earn, that allows users to participate in ETH staking rewards from the Ethereum network. Wrapped tokens are a way to use cryptocurrencies on blockchains other than the blockchain they were originally built on while being backed by their underlying asset.

WBETH is available for use on both Ethereum and the BNB Chain, and it offers a highly competitive 5% redemption fee on staked rewards compared to other staking providers. As one of the many ETH staking pools, WBETH is created by Binance, one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges.
