Stacking Made Easy


Stack STX

Select an amount of STX to stack using StackingDAO's Liquid Stacking Protocol.



Receive stSTX, which automatically accrues in value along with the Stacking rewards.


Participate in DeFi

Use stSTX across DeFi to earn more yield and points, or swap back to STX anytime.


Optimized Stacking

Stacking DAO delegates STX to the best performing Web3 enterprise-grade validators.

.@StackingDao is approaching 100m TVL and is now the largest DeFi app on @Stacks across any Bitcoin L2, even larger than @ALEXLabBTC!

With Nakamoto upgrade close by, we will gonna see crazier numbers.

@Newmancapitalvc has been a supporter from day 1 - DeFi on Bitcoin powered by layer 2 is inevitable.


It looks like @StackingDao crossed $20M in TVL fairly quickly after launch.

STX has a native BTC yield from consensus making it a unique asset. The pull of earning BTC means a large amount of STX gets locked. Now it can be liquid with liquid staking.

I used it and loved the UX.

Hermetica 🟧 | Bitcoin DeFi

It's pretty incredible seeing the @StackingDao

TVL increase week by week.
🔥 $20M TVL last week → $35M+ TVL this week 🔥

There isn't any guess work needed with numbers like this - users and devs alike love liquid staking on Stacks.

Take a moment to congratulate their team:


StackingDAO just crossed $100M TVL, powering DeFi applications on Zest, Arkadiko, Bitflow and more.

They are set to become one of the largest validators on Stacks offering optimized yield performance for STX holders.


Ignas | DeFi Research

First liquid staking on Stacks. WHY it tingles my senses:

• BTCfi narrative with Stacks as BTC L2

• Liquid staking airdrop à la $JITO

• 100 STX+ on StackingDAO during the 1st cycle will qualify for the Genesis NFT drop

• Points coming


Stacks TVL about to double, crazy it took this long guys!

Philip is one of the top builders in the ecosystem so this is sure to be solid

Stacks Foundation

The Stacks ecosystem TVL has been surging in the last few months

The launch of @StackingDao and @Bitflow_Finance are the latest contributors to this growth

With many other DeFi protocols to go live soon, the ecosystem is poised to thrive

See! $stSTX is working well on Stacks⚡️⚡️ @StackingDao can help you in staking your $STX super easily! Let's leverage it to boost our on-chain ex 🟧


Liquid stacking is critical infrastructure for Bitcoin DeFi.

It lowers the opportunity cost of securing the @Stacks network through stacking, and it bootstraps ecosystem liquidity.

1. Liquid stacking providers like @StackingDao add more signers to the open network of validators while giving more people the opportunity to stack STX (without having to run a signer node).

2. By providing liquidity to Stackers, liquid stacking helps users bootstrap other ecosystem players with liquidity (ex: decentralized exchanges like @Bitflow_Finance)

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Stacking DAO and how does it work?

Stacking DAO is a Liquid Stacking protocol on Stacks that makes Stacking easily accessible to anyone and unlocks liquidity for Stacked STX through stSTX, which can then be used across DeFi.

How does it work?

  • Anyone can participate in Stacking by depositing STX into the protocol.
  • Users will then receive stSTX, a liquid representation of stacked STX that accrues in value as Stacking rewards are collected.
  • VelarFinally, stSTX can also be used across DeFi to earn additional yield.
How do I receive STX Stacking rewards?

The Stacking process yields BTC rewards, which are then converted to STX. These STX rewards are not deposited into users' wallets; instead, they are automatically placed in the smart contracts that back stSTX.

A user’s total amount of stSTX remains unchanged, however, when redeeming the underlying STX, the user receives the Staking rewards in addition to the deposited STX tokens.

Where can I use stSTX tokens?

stSTX can be used across the Stacks DeFi ecosystem to earn additional yield and points. New integrations are constantly being added and can be viewed on the
Stacking DAO site.

The live integrations are:

Who are the Signers used by Stacking DAO for STX delegations?

STX is delegated to the best enterprise-grade Validators/Signers in Web3, with a track record of optimal node uptime and billions in assets under management.These Signers are responsible for running nodes while STX tokens are safely controlled by Stacking DAO smart contracts. The stacked STX are evenly distributed among all Signers, helping to secure the Stacks network by bootstrapping a distributed set of Signers.

How can I unstack my STX position?

You can swap your stSTX to STX anytime through Bitflow for instant liquidity. Otherwise, you can get your STX back via Stacking DAO, but it will take up to 14 days to withdraw (length of 1 Stacking cycle).

By initiating the withdrawal process on Stacking DAO, users will burn their stSTX and receive a temporary NFT that represents their withdrawal amount. Once the Stacking cycle is over, users can use the NFT to claim and withdraw their STX.

Read the docs for further information on the withdrawal process:
