Q: What are the benefits of staking $EIGEN with Renzo?

A: Renzo not only makes it easy for users, abstracting away the operator selection, but we also give additional incentives in the form of ezPoints and in the future will be able to enable additional functionality.

Q: Is there a difference between staking $EIGEN directly through EigenLayer versus Renzo?

A: Users who stake their $EIGEN directly through EigenLayer will not receive a boost to their ezPoints.

Q: How is $EIGEN staking different from $ETH restaking?

A: $EIGEN token is non-transferable, and thus users can only claim and stake their $EIGEN securing EigenDA and additional AVSs in the future.

Q: Can I stake $EIGEN with Renzo if I restaked directly with EigenLayer?

A: Yes, however users will first have to undelegate their $ETH or LST from EigenLayer which can take up to 7 days. Once unstaked, user needs to:

  • Stake their $EIGEN with Renzo and they’ll be able to restake their $ETH or LST with Renzo as well. The undelegation step is required because $EIGEN is non transferable and a wallet address can only delegate to 1 restaking operator address.

Q: Can I unstake / withdrawal my $EIGEN?

A: Yes, users keep custody of $EIGEN. To unstake $EIGEN user needs to go to the EigenLayer app and select Renzo’s $EIGEN Staking operator. Any unstaking cooldown periods are determined by EigenLayer https://app.eigenlayer.xyz/operator/0xb585cb192855253d33ddbdac2d20f50085ef8d41

Q: How long is the Withdrawal period for $EIGEN?

A: For $EIGEN stakers, the withdrawal and cooldown period will take up to 7-days, these are determined by EigenLayer.

Q: If I stake, unstake and then restake my $EIGEN (loop my $EIGEN), will I be able to receive an additional deposit boost?

A: No, users who attempt to loop their $EIGEN will be penalized and will not receive their ezPoints bonus.

Q: I see my earned EigenLayer points on the Renzo dashboard, but when going to the EigenLayer claiming page, it says I'm not eligible.

A: EigenLayer is responsible for distributing $EIGEN tokens to LRT holders and Restakers. Renzo has no way to check if a user is eligible for $EIGEN token claims based on a user’s EigenLayer points.

Please note: Eligibility depends on certain factors, and Season 1 snapshot was March 15th, 2024. $EIGEN distribution has 2 phases described in the following article: https://docs.eigenfoundation.org/faq/season-1

Q: What will the Eigenlayer points in the Renzo Dapp be used for?

A: EigenLayer points will continue to accrue to users who are holding or participating in DeFi with $ezETH. EigenLayer points are used as a point of reference for Renzo to share with OpenBlock.

Q: Will I receive ezPoints if I stake tokens other than $EIGEN to Renzo’s public node operator?

A: LSTs or tokens other than $EIGEN that are staked to Renzo's public operator P2P will not receive any ezPoints or EigenLayer points.
