The hETH token represents Hord's entire ETH staking pool. hETH is expected to increase in value in relation to ETH as validator rewards are added to the pool.
How can I redeem my ETH?

How does Hord compare with Lido and others?
We offer lower fees than most other Liquid Staking Pools while maintaining a simple user experience and no minimums. With Lido controlling a large portion of all ETH staked, there’s a continuous need for additional staking pools to ensure Ethereum remains decentralized and robust.
How is the APR calculated?
Hord’s APR represents the average return users can expect over the course of a year based on a rolling 7-day average. APR can fluctuate due to reward rate, MEV, and boosted HORD rewards.
What happens to the staked ETH?
