Get started here:

What Is Liquid Staking and hINJ?

Liquid staking is the act of delegating your tokens to a service that stakes for you without losing access to your funds. hINJ is the liquid staking token (LST) created by Hydro Protocol that enables instant staking benefits and unlocks liquidity for different uses across other DeFi protocols. 

When users deposit INJ with Hydro LSD, they will mint and receive hINJ on a 1:1 basis in return. This 1:1 ratio will always be honoured through a smart-contract.

Why is Liquid Staking Important for INJ?

Liquid staking improves capital efficiency and maximizes yield for users, in addition to allowing users to earn passive income through staking. Without liquid staking, using a token in DeFi requires that it be unstaked, thereby forfeiting its staking reward. But with liquid staking, INJ can be used to both participate in DeFi and earn staking rewards, lowering the barrier to DeFi usage. Effectively, this means that while you are earning staking rewards, you can also engage with trading, yield farming, lending and much more simultaneously.
