What is Liquid-Staking?

💧 Staking in the Zetachain involves ZETA token holders allocating their tokens to validators, enhancing the validators' voting power. This can be done either by direct staking or through a stake pool, with delegators keeping control of their tokens.

💧 Stake pools in Zeta combine multiple validator nodes, allowing delegators to stake with various validators at once and receive a liquid token like $omZeta for DeFi use.

💧 These pools aid in network decentralization by distributing stakes across different validators, each with specific selection criteria and strategies. $omZeta, for instance, balances high yields with decentralization goals, requiring nodes to meet performance and decentralization standards for stake eligibility.
