Diversify Your Portfolio. Decentralize The Network.

We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our next index token: the Diversified Staked ETH Index (dsETH)!

dsETH is an index of the leading Ethereum liquid staking tokens. Holders of dsETH earn staking yield while incentivizing liquid staking protocols to be more efficient and decentralized.

At launch, dsETH is composed of rETH (Rocket Pool), wrapped stETH (Lido), and sETH2 (StakeWise).

Read on for more information on dsETH, including:

  • How to buy dsETH
  • Upcoming events where we’ll discuss dsETH
  • A deep-dive into dsETH methodology

Gain A Better Understanding of dsETH Methodology

The objective of dsETH is to give token holders diversified exposure to liquid staking tokens with weightings that favor decentralized liquid staking protocols.

To be eligible for inclusion, liquid staking tokens must meet all inclusion criteria, which center around security, transparency, liquidity, and client diversity.

Tokens that meet these criteria are assigned equal weights before applying two factors:

  • the number of node operators supporting a protocol
  • the distribution of stake across those node operators

The Node Operator Factor represents the number of node operators supporting a protocol. It takes the square root of active node operators supporting a protocol and divides it by the sum of square roots for all protocols represented in the index.

As a result, protocols with more node operators receive a greater weight in the index, while protocols with fewer nodes receive a lesser weight.
