Stride, a leading liquid staking protocol in the Cosmos ecosystem, has launched a liquid staking token for Celestia (TIA) named stTIA. To encourage adoption, Stride is airdropping 5 million STRIDE tokens, valued at $18.5 million, to early stTIA holders over five months, with 3 million distributed in the next 60 days. The protocol, which saw a 26% increase in value over the past month, currently has $88 million in total value locked (TVL).
