About Us
YieldNest is a decentralized liquid restaking protocol providing an easy solution for ETH holders to natively restake their ETH into EigenLayer and earn rewards without sacrificing liquidity. A protocol designed to form a symbiotic relationship between stakers, Node Operators, and Actively Validated Services (AVSs). We are maximizing Yield for restakers and Node Operators by providing a protocol to connect restakers with Node Operators in a trust-minimized manner and simplifying the process of running ETH validators and Actively Validated Services on EigenLayer.

Traditional Finance has come to rely on the power of off-chain computation, since it allows their strategies to be proprietary and include the work of highly sophisticated data modeling, machine learning models which would be impossible to do On-chain. YieldNest aims to do all of this but without the tradeoff of centralization that exists in traditional finance thanks to its Validator Set.
