In the case of ethereum, however, stacking is as important as the distribution of funds; according to Delphi, only four organizations control nearly all of the stacks in the network, and the largest of these regularly have decentralization issues.

Lido Finance remains the largest player in the network, but its basic stETH token redistribution system has some flaws. By then delegating “real” coins to Lido, traders receive liquid stETH tokens that can be used to trade with Ethereum in locked contracts. However, there is a dilemma.
