Introducing the stUSD Restaking Vault on Nektar: New Earnings Opportunities for Stablecoin Holders

Users can now earn yield on their stablecoins by participating in a unique restaking mechanism. By leveraging the Nektar Network and Enzyme, the stUSD Restaking Vault offers multiple layers of rewards, from stUSD yield to Nektar Drops, making it an attractive option for USDC holders looking to maximize their returns.

What's the stUSD restaking vault on Nektar?

The Angle stUSD Restaking Vault on Nektar is a new DeFi product allowing users to earn yields on their stablecoins. By leveraging the Nektar restaking network and Enzyme’s battle-tested smart contract infrastructure, the vault offers multiple layers of rewards: depositors get staking & restaking rewards paid in Angle's stUSD. Participants also accrue points: Nektar Drops, as well as Angle Prots to be redeemed for ANGLE tokens at a later date!

How does it work?

You can already start participating by depositing USDC into the vault during the pre-launch of Nektar. You’ll earn the stUSD yield plus double points: Angle Prots and Nektar Drops.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Deposit USDC or ETH into the vault

  2. Conversion to stUSD: the deposited USDC are automatically swapped into stUSD

  3. Earning rewards: users immediately start earning Nektar Drops and Angle Prots credits, alongside the yield from the stUSD stablecoin

Upon the launch of the Nektar protocol, the vault will take a significant step forward in its evolution by introducing the restaking mechanism:

  1. stUSD to ETH swap: the stUSD held in the vault is swapped for ETH

  2. Restaking on Nektar: the swapped ETH is restaked on the Nektar protocol

  3. Continuous rewards: users earn rewards on ETH in the form of restaking rewards paid out in stUSD stablecoin yield-generating stablecoin

The innovative restaking mechanism maximizes the potential for earnings by swapping stUSD for ETH and restaking it on the Nektar Network.

When depositing into the vault, users get a receipt token — anglETH — representing the share of the vault they hold, based on the amount they deposited.

Want to exit the vault? Users just have to redeem their anglETH and get their share of what's inside the vault paid in stUSD during phase 1, and paid with a mix of stUSD and ETH in phase 2.
