Recent market conditions have led to a sustained deviation between the prices of Lido Staked Ether (stETH) and Ether (ETH). Since stETH is the core component of Interest Compounding ETH Index (icETH), this has resulted in an impact on the price of icETH. While less ideal in the short term, the lower price of icETH does provide a potential arbitrage opportunity. Check out our in-depth article to understand the current pricing of icETH as well as potential future scenarios for investors.
Where does passive DeFi income come from? Is it sustainable? How are they able to beat the interest rates of my bank? If something appears to be too good to be true, it probably is. So it's important to have a curious mind and truly understand answers to these questions before going too far down the rabbit hole. Learn about all the different ways you can earn a sustainable yield on your cryptocurrency investments.
