What we like
Stader abstracts away the challenges and risks around maintaining staking infrastructure by allowing users to delegate their BNB to professional node operators.
What we like less
Staking with Stader assumes greater security risks as the underlying smart contracts may be exploited. The treasury for Polygon BNBX is also controlled by a limited 2/3 multisig.
What it means for you
Stader's liquid staking protocol offers you a great way to stake your BNB and earn rewards for securing the BNB Chain while remaining liquid with BNBX.

Risk Assessment
Protocol Code Quality
  • Code reviewed by several experienced auditors including Halborn and PeckShield
  • Public team promotes accountability
  • No documented protocol hacks since launch

  • Top 20% by total value locked slightly reduces risk
  • Multisig wallet controls protocol upgrades
  • Multisig consists of less than 4 signers, which makes the protocol more susceptible to centralization risks
  • Timelock is less than 48hrs, which provides users with less time to exit if any malicious upgrades are approved
  • Low voting power concentration reduces risk
Protocol Design
  • No death spiral concerns
  • This protocol is susceptible to risks related to staking a token to secure a network, such as slashing events
