Why stake through Ledger Live

Highly secure

No need to own 32 ETH to become a network validator. With Lido, Ledger users can participate in the network with any amount of ETH.

All in one place

You can manage, buy, swap, and stake your Ethereum through Ledger Live with our partners. All your crypto needs, in one app.

Start with Ledger Live


You may be able to passively grow your ETH via the services offered by our partner Lido through Ledger Live by participating in the Ethereum network. To do this, simply use the Lido DApp through your Ledger Live.

The percentage return on staked ETH depends on the total staked ETH in the network. If the total amount of ETH staked is low, then the reward rate will consequently be higher, with a maximum annual reward rate of 18%.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, you don’t need to stake and keep 32 ETH locked to become a network validator. Ledger users can participate in the network with any amount of ETH. For each Ether you stake through Ledger with our partner Lido, you’ll receive an stETH token in exchange. You can exchange, send or sell these stETH, making Ethereum staking more liquid.

With our partner Lido, you receive staking rewards within 24 hours of your deposit being made, without waiting for validator activation. The reward will be in the form of stETH tokens that will be added to your stETH balance.

The Ethereum staking reward rate is variable and changes based on the total amount of ETH staked, with a maximum annual reward rate of 18.10%.
Lido applies a 10% fee on staking rewards, split between node operators, the DAO and an insurance fund. This fee can be changed by the DAO pending a successful vote.
You can track the current Ethereum staking rate here.

There are different potential risks when staking ETH using Lido. Lido could contain a smart contract vulnerability or bug. The Lido code is open-sourced, audited and covered by an extensive bug bounty program to minimise this risk.

There is also a technical risk with ETH 2.0. Lido is built atop experimental technology under active development, and there is no guarantee that ETH 2.0 has been developed error-free. You can learn more here.

It’s not currently possible to unstake ETH that have been staked on the Beacon Chain.
However, you currently have the option to swap your stETh balance back for regular ETH. This effectively “unstake” yourETH.
You can swap stETH for regular ETH using the Paraswap app in Ledger Live.
You can learn more about how to use Paraswap here.

You have full ownership of your Ethers when you stake through Ledger, unlike with crypto exchanges.

Choosing a validator is a personal decision, and it’s important to do your own research. When available, choose Ledger, a trusted validator that offers great rewards and best security.
