A rise in the volume of staked Ethereum is typically a bullish sign as it pulls ETH tokens out of circulation and reduces the selling pressure on the asset across cryptocurrency exchange platforms.
The second-largest asset by market capitalization yielded 4.8% gains over the past week based on CoinGecko data. Moreover, the increase in volume of staked Ether has resulted in a surge of activity in the liquid staking protocol tokens Lido DAO (LDO) and Rocket Pool (RPL).
LDO and RPL prices rally alongside daily activity increase
LDO price appreciated by 10.1% and RPL by 5.7% within the past seven days. At the time of writing, LDO and RPL are changing hands at $2.15 and $49.11, respectively. The two liquid staking governance/protocol tokens are rallying in response to a rise in interest among market participants.
Traders are participating in staking on Lido Finance’s platform while maintaining liquidity through the tokenized representation of Lido Staked Ether (STETH). The spike in staking on liquid staking protocols has contributed to higher revenue, while prices of governance/protocol tokens are yet to catch up.
