EigenLayer

Step-by-Step Guide

Step-by-Step Guide:
Task 1: Mainnet

Visit the EigenLayer mainnet page.
Connect your Metamask wallet.
They currently support stETH (Lido), rETH (Rocket Pool), cbETH (Coinbase), wBETH (Binance), osETH (Stakewise), swETH (Swell), AnkrETH (Ankr), EthX (Stader) and OETH (Origin ETH).
Get some ETH first and restake it on one of the above-mentioned platforms to get their LSTs. You can get ETH on Binance.
Now, go back to the pools and stake your tokens.
You will start earning EigenLayer points. They’re a way to measure your contribution to the EigenLayer ecosystem.
You can also earn more EigenLayer points as well as become eligible for other speculative airdrops by interacting with other projects using the EigenLayer protocol. Some are:

Swell has confirmed to airdrop SWELL tokens to users who earn PEARL points. Staking ETH on Swell and then restaking swETH on EigenLayer gets you PEARL points as well as EigenLayer points.
You can also earn EigenLayer points as well as ether.fi points for staking on Ether.fi. They’ve also hinted at rewarding early users.
Stake ETH on Renzo to earn Renzo points as well as EigenLayer points. They’ve also hinted at rewarding early users.

They don’t have their own token yet but could launch one in the future. So, early users who interact with the platform and collect points may get an airdrop if they launch their own token.

Task 2: Testnet

Visit the EigenLayer testnet page.
Connect your Metamask wallet.
Change the network to Goerli.
Currently, they’ve Lido’s stETH and Rocket Pool’s rETH pools to test with so you will need stETH and rETH.
Firstly get Goerli ETH from this faucet.
Send Goerli ETH to this Lido’s stETH token contract address “0x1643E812aE58766192Cf7D2Cf9567dF2C37e9B7F”. You will get Lido’s stETH back automatically once your transaction is complete.
Visit the Rocket Pool testnet page and stake your Goerli ETH to get Rocket Pool’s rETH.
Now you will have both Lido’s stETH and Rocket Pool’s rETH testnet tokens.
Go back to the EigenLayer testnet page and select “Rocket Pool ETH” and stake your rETH and then select the “Lido Staked Ether” pool and stake your stETH.
For more information regarding the testnet, read this article.
They don’t have an own token yet but could launch one in the future. So early users who’ve done the testnet actions may get an airdrop if they launch an own token.

Don’t forget to verify yourself with Gitcoin Passport, which is a way to ensure proof of humanity and prevent bot activity. It distinguishes real wallets from Sybil wallets, adding an extra layer of security. Creating a Gitcoin Passport and collecting stamps can help mark your wallet as “safe,” increasing your chances of being considered for airdrops by projects.
Please note that there is no guarantee that they will do an airdrop and that they will launch their own token. It’s only speculation.
