What Is Liquid Staking and stINJ? 

Liquid staking is the act of delegating your tokens to a service that stakes for you without losing access to your funds. stINJ is a tokenized derivative of staked INJ enabled by Stride, an interchain protocol specializing in liquid staking. Stride is not only the first liquid staking zone for the cosmos ecosystem but also facilitates the most liquidity for major tokens such as ATOM.

Stride allows you to stake INJ while also minting stINJ (Staked INJ). stINJ is a representation of your staked INJ tokens that can be utilized elsewhere. So while your INJ is staked and earning rewards, you are able to take the stINJ to participate in distinct DeFi protocols. stINJ can also be redeemed for INJ at any time with Stride.

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.
