Renzo protocol is a liquid staking platform and strategy manager built on EigenLayer. It allows users to stake their ETH in exchange for APR from native staking and restaking on EigenLayer, as well as the liquid staking of token from Renzo (ezETH), which can be utilized in various DeFi applications. The platform's governance layer is powered by the native $REZ token, the primary role of which is granting users access to DAO votings within the platform.

Since its inception in mid-2023, the company has garnered the attention of leading funds and investors such as Binance Labs, OKX Ventures, and others, securing over $3.2 million from them.

Renzo restaking protocol aims to provide users with an interface for the EigenLayer ecosystem not only on Ethereum but also on Arbitrum, Linea, Mode, Base, BNB and OKX L2 chain networks.

As a liquid staking protocol, Renzo offers users a ezETH - Renzo liquid staking token in exchange for staking ETH on its platform. This token is equivalent in value to the amount of ETH contributed to Renzo. The APR for staking ETH can be tracked via the growth of ezETH. Initially, this ratio is 1:1, but over time, it increases in value according to the APR promised by the platform.

However, unlike the other protocols, the rise of value of the ezETH token backed up not only by rewards from the native staking on Ethereum but also by rewards from the restaking on EigenLayer, potentially leading to the higher returns for users. The token can be also used to earn additional APR by providing it into the DeFi LP and lending protocols, similarly to the other ETH staking protocols.

This innovative approach garnered the remarkable attention not only from top tier funds such as Binance Labs and OKX Ventures, but also the crypto community. Since its inception in 2023, the protocol has managed to grow its TVL (total value locked) to over $3.3B.

What is the ezETH Token?

The ezETH token is the native token of the Renzo Protocol that represents a user’s re-stake activities. Users that deposit ETH or other approved tokens receive ezETH tokens, which hold similar value and can be used for transactions.

The ezETH token is a reward-bearing token, so its price increases relative to the underlying asset and its earned reward. These earned rewards can be in ETH, USDC, and AVS reward tokens. Users can also withdraw their staked tokens and rewards.

Withdrawing assets involves unstaking the deposited assets, and it is subject to the re-staking strategy and EigenLayer’s unstaking protocol. The withdrawal process can take at least seven days, depending on the above factors.

Directly withdrawing ezETH tokens is not enabled. Instead, users can sell their ezETH to balancers who would convert the ezETH token to ETH. That is why the token has zero circulating supply and a total supply of 282,469 ezETH.

The ezETH token provides some potential benefits to its holders. The token leverages the EigenLayer to offer higher yields than traditional staking protocols.

It also allows for flexible asset management. With the ezETH token, users can reap the benefits of staking on Ethereum while participating in DeFi transactions.

The Renzo Protocol’s strategy manager automatically selects validators based on specific criteria to minimize slashing risks associated with validator misconduct.

Finally, the protocol allows for cross-chain staking features, allowing holders to re-stake on popular layer two projects using wETH. This expands the investment opportunities open to Renzo users.

A major advantage of the Renzo Protocol is the enhanced yield combined with the ezETH token, allowing re-staking assets on multiple projects.Another advantage is the cross-chain capacity, which simplifies the staking experience. And a user-friendly Interface with reduced cost.The project also has the possibility of future multi-token support for WBETH and Lasts from other projects. Using the EigenLayer, Renzo Protocol can provide a secure, trustless staking experience.
