Liquid staking protocols allow users to earn staking rewards even without locking up their assets. Users can deposit tokens and receive tradable liquid tokens in return.
The only risk for stakers is missing out on rewards any time a validator they staked with is slashed. Slashing is a protocol-level penalty associated with a validator failure if it validates an invalid transaction or goes offline. The delegated staked token is not slashed — slashing impacts only the self-stake of the validator. Ankr only delegates to trusted and reputable validator nodes to avoid any validator that would act maliciously.
