Explore ETH Restaking on EigenLayer using InfStones in our concise guide, detailing the steps to efficiently restake your ETH.

What is EigenLayer and ETH Restaking?

EigenLayer is a protocol built on Ethereum that introduces restaking, a new primitive in cryptoeconomic security. At the heart of EigenLayer's innovation is the concept of 'restaking'—a novel approach that allows the rehypothecation of ETH on the consensus layer. Users that stake ETH can opt-in to EigenLayer smart contracts to restake their ETH and extend cryptoeconomic security to additional applications on the network.

By restaking ETH tokens, ETH holders will receive a wide range of benefits, including ETH staking profits, EigenLayer points, and restaking profits from the AVS projects protected by EigenLayer restaking.
