Launch of Lido V2 Enhancing Ethereum Staking and Decentralization

After a successful vote on the blockchain, Lido V2 has been officially launched on Ethereum mainnet. This upgrade represents the most significant enhancement to the Lido protocol to date, elevating the Ethereum staking experience while also promoting greater decentralization of the protocol. Lido V2 introduces two primary components, one of which is the ability for Ethereum stakers to withdraw ETH directly through the protocol, enhancing the user experience. Additionally, the upgrade offers a range of new features to the platform, with withdrawals and staking routers being the primary focus. Lido V2 also features a critical rewrite of the Oracle smart contract and off-chain daemon software, enabling withdrawals functionality and expanding the number of Node Operators tenfold.
