EigenLayer Unveils Restaking Project with Token Limit and Asset Support Expansion
EigenLayer, a pioneering project in the realm of Restaking, has announced its latest initiative to elevate the ceiling for token deposits into its platform. Simultaneously, the project unveiled three new additions to the supported asset list for Liquid Staking Tokens (LST). The newly supported tokens include sfrxETH from Frax Finance, mETH from Mantle, and LsETH from Liquid Collective. The restaking operation is set to kick off between January 29 and February 2, 2024.
In line with previous token limit increases, this restaking activity will be capped at 200,000 tokens per portfolio. Once this milestone is achieved before the specified timeframe, the restaking operation will be temporarily suspended.
Introducing the LSTs: Welcome to the EigenLayer ecosystem!
Each one brings its unique edge.

EigenLayer, in its prior token limit increase in December 2023, successfully attracted a substantial amount of LST in the form of ETH, reaching a significant milestone of locking in a total value of 1 billion USD on its network.
The incremental approach to lifting token limits and imposing caps in each round aims to serve multiple purposes. It not only allows EigenLayer to iterate on its product but also mitigates unwarranted risks associated with the assets locked into the platform.
EigenLayer positions itself as a Restaking project with the ambition to repurpose staked ETH on the network for various tasks such as Data Availability, through its EigenDA product branch, and the establishment of new network verifications via Autonomous Verification Systems (AVS).
The restaking process, which involves users re-delegating their staked tokens, is crucial for EigenLayer’s broader vision of utilizing locked assets in the most efficient and effective ways. By supporting additional assets like sfrxETH, mETH, and LsETH, EigenLayer is expanding its scope and diversifying its portfolio to enhance the overall resilience and utility of the platform.
