market analysis Liquid Restaking Leverage

Levered points. Liquid restaking is one of the most popular ways Airdrop Hunters are positioning themselves to make the most of restaking summer. Which protocol is elevating your ability to position yourself for these airdrops to an unprecedented level, and should you ape the token?

Gearbox (GEAR) pools capital from lenders, creating a market for degens to borrow deposits and deploy them to whitelisted smart contracts to farm yields with leverage or trade on margin.

The Protocolโ€™s latest product allows users to lever their exposure to liquid restaking tokens (LRTs) by up to 10x!

 The initial 2.5k ETH borrow limit for Gearboxโ€™s weETH pool was hit within 24 hours of deployment, increasing the amount of ETH borrowed from Gearbox by 126% and sending natural yields on deposits surging to 8.5%!
