Lend stTIA On Nitron And Qualify For The Stride Airdrop

Celestia Network recently launched its native token, TIA, serving both as the network's powerhouse and governance token. The ecosystem swiftly witnessed the deployment of various dApps, alongside the emergence of liquid staking protocols like MilkyWay and Stride, introducing derivatives such as milkTIA and stTIA, respectively.

If you're curious about LSDFi, you can find more details in our previous blog post here.

Why the surging interest in TIA LSDs?

The surge in popularity of TIA liquid staking derivatives (LSDs) stems from users' inclination towards active engagement in DeFi activities rather than mere HODLing for price appreciation. With staking offering attractive returns, averaging at 15%, and the prospect of direct airdrop opportunities from validators, users are drawn to liquid staking protocols. These protocols not only offer liquidity to engage in DeFi but also reduce unstaking times and ensure fair distribution among network validators. The primary allure of holding LSDs lies in the unlocked liquidity, opening doors to diverse opportunities.

TIA LSDs, particularly, have witnessed immense traction due to a wave of airdrops from protocols rewarding TIA and TIA LSD holders. Even networks outside Celestia, like AltLayer, have participated in this trend by airdropping tokens to holders of derivatives like milkTIA.

Stride's Vision for stTIA: Modular Money

Stride's introduction of stTIA, dubbed "modular money," marks a revolutionary stride within the Cosmos ecosystem. Unlike conventional PoS tokens, stTIA transcends traditional staking rewards and airdrops, serving as a versatile bridge across blockchain networks and DApps.

Envisioned by Stride, stTIA emerges as a pivotal asset driving cross-blockchain rollups, ensuring seamless transactions across diverse networks. Its deep liquidity on DEXs enhances accessibility for trading, while its role as collateral across DeFi leverage apps empowers users with financial flexibility. Moreover, stTIA facilitates NFT trading, amplifying its significance in the decentralized landscape. As DAO treasuries embrace stTIA, Stride's vision unfolds, highlighting its stability within decentralized governance structures.

Stride's Unprecedented Airdrop for stTIA Holders

In an unprecedented move, Stride announced its largest airdrop yet for stTIA holders. With 5,000,000 STRD tokens—equivalent to 5% of the total max supply—set to be distributed, users engaging in DeFi activities like collateralization and liquidity provision with stTIA are eligible for this massive airdrop.
