At its core, a liquid staking protocol needs three key components: a mechanism to mint tokenized version of staked assets, a liquid market to trade these tokenized assets, and a mechanism to collateralize the tokenized assets.

In Tenderize V2, these core components are:

  • TenderVault - Liquid staking vault that accepts user deposits, staking them to a the validator chosen by the user, minting and burning tTokens.

  • TenderSwap - A decentralized exchange featuring shared, fractional liquidity which can be accessed by any TenderToken holder.

  • BeefBank - A borrowing facility to deposit tTokens as collaterl to mint SteaksDollar, a stablecoin pegged to the US dollar.

Additional components include:

  • TenderTokens (tTokens) - Elastic supply ERC-20 tokens which represent staked assets and earned rewards 1:1. Price is pegged to the underlying, unstaked asset.

  • Productive Treasury - Protocol revenue is directed to the on-chain treasury, once there, it is compounded by providing liquidity on TenderSwap.
