Getting Started with Stride and stTIA

Everyone seems to be talking about Stride.

The staking platform for Cosmos chains just unveiled stTIA, a liquid staking token (LST) for Celestia’s TIA. stTIA allows holders to earn Celestia staking yields passively while still maintaining a liquid position that can be used in other DeFi projects.

Stride also just kicked off a 150-day STRD airdrop campaign for early stTIA holders. 

  • Strategy: Deposit TIA to mint stTIA.
  • Goal: Earn TIA staking rewards + STRD airdrop eligibility.

How to get started with stTIA

  • 🪙 Ready your TIA — Acquire TIA on a crypto exchange like Coinbase or Kraken and then deposit it to your Celestia wallet, e.g. Keplr
  • 👛 Connect your wallet — Head to app.stride.zone and click the “Connect wallet” button to connect your Celestia wallet.
  • 🔢 Prep your position — In the “Liquid Staking” interface, input the amount of TIA you want to convert to stTIA. 
  • 📥 Complete the deposit — Press “Liquid stake,” then “Start staking.” Approve the two ensuing transactions with your wallet to deposit TIA and mint stTIA. 
  • 💰 Earn rewards — Hold your stTIA to earn Celestia staking yields and qualify for daily STRD snapshots. STRD rewards will be claimable 6 months after they’re earned
  • 🔃 Unwind your position — Whenever you want to withdraw your stTIA back to TIA, you can do so using the “Unstake” tab in Stride’s “Liquid Staking” interface.
