Liquid Collective is the secure liquid staking standard: a protocol with multi-chain capabilities designed to meet the needs of institutions, built and run by a collective of leading web3 teams. The protocol is stewarded by an independent industry consortium, which includes The Liquid Foundation, Alluvial, Coinbase Cloud, Figment, Kiln, Rome Blockchain Labs, Kraken, Staked, and other web3 industry participants. Liquid Collective will be governed in a decentralized manner by a broad and dispersed community of industry participants.
Liquid staking is a rapidly growing alternative to locking up user's tokens and contributing to the security of proof-of-stake blockchains. Whereas traditional methods of staking are subject to bonding and unbonding periods (ranging from days to weeks), liquid staking provides stakers with increased liquidity and capital efficiency. Token holders stake their token and receive a receipt token as evidence of their ownership. The receipt token can be transferred, stored, traded, and utilized in DeFi or supported dapps.
Liquid staking has been experiencing rapid adoption. In 2022, liquid staking on Ethereum alone grew to represent over 30% of staked ETH. Alluvial expects to see this trend continue as liquid stakers benefit from increased liquidity and capital efficiency, all while contributing to the security of the underlying network.
How do we empower new users, who will bring the next wave of capital, to participate in securing this new decentralized internet? We're building a new type of organization and a new liquid staking standard for the ecosystem. Our approach requires collaboration across many different parties, each with their own vision, perspective, and interests. What brings everyone together to participate in this audacious effort?
