The EigenLayer ecosystem allows Ethereum validators to restake their ETH and provide services to the network, such as a Data Availability Layer with a particular type of node software called Actively Validated Services (AVS).

Eigenlayer Operators act as AVS nodes by opting into validating AVSs by running their AVS software. An AVS Node is a node that runs the AVS software as an Eigenlayer Operator.

Renzo operator nodes are professional staking providers who can ensure the safety of funds belonging to the protocol users and the correctness of restaking operations.

The protocol distributes the pooled LSTs between all active Node Operators depending on weights associated with each Operator. This way a determined risk/reward can be set to allow optimum return based on calculated risk.
