We propose to add wrapped Lido staked ETH (wstETH) token market to strike protocol.
There is strong interest in using wstETH to earn additional yield without taking a lot of risk. This is evident through the growth of the wstETH market on AAVE and Curve Finance, which has become the most liquid pools.
The addition of wstETH on to Strike protocol can work to attract a larger audience to both Strike Finance and Lido. wstETH would likely bring new borrow demand to Strike as market participants look to borrow ETH against their deposited wstETH to stake more ETH into Lido for higher yield.
wstETH is the non-rebasing version of stETH, the ETH liquid staking derivative token used to represent staked ether on Lido. It is currently by far the most popular liquid staking solution, with $5.6B TVL.
Lido has enabled stETH withdrawals, allowing users to unstake ETH through the protocol. The update has the effect of significantly reducing the risk of stETH depeg.
