Economy Calculation and Formulas
Data Quality and Reconciliation
As a foundation to showcase EigenLayer's economy, we provide the best data quality possible by indexing data from Ethereum directly and reconciling each data point with other independent sources to guarantee the most accurate and uptodate information.
Data Freshness
Please refer to each metric below for their data freshness.
Economy Metrics
ETH TVL / EIGEN TVL / Total TVL in USD
Definition: Dollar value of total assets staked/restaked in EigenLayer, including all ETH (LSTs and native ETH), EIGEN tokens, and all other permissionless assets restaked.
Formula:
 For all strategies' TVL in EigenLayer, except the beacon strategy (aka, nativeETH strategy) and EIGEN strategy:
 Index strategies in EigenLayer from all
StrategyAddedToDepositWhitelist
events minusStrategyRemovedFromDepositWhitelist
events from theStrategyManager
contract, which will include all strategies except the beacon strategy.  For each strategy in EigenLayer, get their underlying tokens.
 Convert underlying tokens to token amounts via token decimals,
token amount = underlying token / power(10, token decimals)
.  Multiply token amounts by the corresponding token's pricing from Coingecko, and sum them up.
 Note that some tokens may lack pricing data on Coingecko; these will be excluded from the TVL in USD calculation.
 For the beacon strategy:

Index all
PodDeployed
events from theEigenPodManager
contract. 
For each EigenPod, query the beacon chain to check which validators have pointed their withdrawal credentials to the pod.
 Withdrawal credentials will be of the format:
0x010000000000000000000000 + <eigen_pod_address>
 Note: Multiple validator withdrawal credentials can point to a single EigenPod.
 Withdrawal credentials will be of the format:

For each EigenPod, get all its validators' ETH balance

Sum up all validators balance, multiply by ETH pricing from Coingecko

Note:
 This approach is also adopted by defillama
 We will consider in the future to switch to use EigenPod Upgrade native data, to remove dependency on beacon chain data and be more close to rest strategies
 For EIGEN strategy:
Follow the same steps in 1, with exception that EIGEN strategy is backed by bEIGEN (Backing EIGEN) token instead of EIGEN token. Coingecko only provides EIGEN token pricing, so we need to use EIGEN token pricing multiply by bEIGEN token amounts to calculate TVL in USD for EIGEN strategy.
 Sum up above 3 values to get the total TVL in USD for EigenLayer, or use them separately for ETH TVL and EIGEN TVL

% of ETH Restaked
Definition: Percentage of total ETH that is restaked, out of ETH circulating supply.
Formula:
 Index
OperatorSharesIncreased
andOperatorSharesDecreased
events fromDelegationManager
contract.  Calculate total delegated ETH amount for all ETH strategies, by convert shares to underlying tokens by strategy's ratio of shares to underlying token, then convert underlying tokens amount to tokens amount with token decimals
token amount = underlying token / 1e18
.  Divide total delegated ETH amount by ETH circulating supply from Coingecko.
Data Sources: Ethereum events, Coingecko Data Fresh Frequency: Every 1 hour
% of EIGEN Staked
Definition: Percentage of total EIGEN that is staked, excluding EIGEN staked by investors, out of EIGEN circulating supply.
Formula:
Index OperatorSharesIncreased
and OperatorSharesDecreased
events from DelegationManager
contract.
 Calculate total delegated EIGEN amount for EIGEN strategy, by converting shares amount to underlying tokens amount as 1:1, then convert underlying tokens amount to tokens amount with token decimals
token amount = underlying token / 1e18
.  Subtract the amount of EIGEN staked by investors from the total delegated EIGEN amount.
 Divide the adjusted EIGEN amount by EIGEN circulating supply from Coingecko.

Total Rewards Earned
Definition: Dollar value of total rewards earned in EigenLayer.
Formula:
 Index all
AVSRewardsSubmissionCreated
andRewardsSubmissionForAllEarnersCreated
events from theRewardsCoordinator
contract.  For each rewards submission, get the token amount by converting
amount
with the reward token decimals.  Multiply the token amount by the corresponding token's pricing from Coingecko, and sum them up.

Total AVS FDV
Definition: US Dollar value of all AVS Token FDVs
Formula:
 Retrieve tokens from all Mainnet AVSs that have an associated token.
 For each token, obtain its FDV (Fully Diluted Valuation) from Coingecko.
 Sum up the FDVs of all tokens to get the total AVS FDV.

Restakers Funnel
Definition: The funnel of restakers in EigenLayer, which includes the number of restakers who restaked (delegated) more than $1M,$50M, and $100M cumulatively.
Formula:
 Index
OperatorSharesIncreased
andOperatorSharesDecreased
events from theDelegationManager
contract.  For each restaker, get their delegated shares amount to date, convert shares to underlying tokens by strategy's ratio of shares to underlying token, then convert to tokens amount via token decimals, then convert to USD amount by multiplying with the corresponding token pricing from Coingecko.
 Sum up all USD value of delegated tokens for each restaker, count them by $1M,$50M, and $100M thresholds.
 Cumulate thresholds, meaning the number of restakers who delegated more than $1M includes that of who delegated more than$50M and $100M, the number of restakers who delegated more than$50M includes that of who delegated more than $100M.

¹ The number of restakers reflects the various ways LRT holders create EigenPods. As a result, many users of LRT platforms may appear as one or a few wallets in the data. This metric aims to provide insight into the LRTholders' participation.
