Restaking User Guide

Restaking is a new primitive in crypto-economic security. These guides will walk you through how LST holders and Native Stakers can restake, withdraw and earn points on the platform.
Liquid vs Native Restaking
Liquid restaking is the process of depositing liquid staking tokens (LSTs), e.g. stETH or rETH, into the EigenLayer smart contracts.
Native restaking describes the process of changing an Ethereum validator's withdrawCredentialto EigenLayer's smart contracts.
Withdrawal Delay
EigenLayer is launching with a maximally conservative withdrawal delay, which is intended to only decrease over time.
A 7-day delay window should give ample time to review withdrawals for anything suspicious and pause relevant functionality if needed.
