What is EigenLayer?

Operating atop Ethereum, EigenLayer introduces restaking as a revolutionary component in cryptoeconomic security. This fundamental aspect allows for the reuse of ETH within the consensus layer. Users staking ETH natively or via a liquid staking token (LST) can opt into EigenLayer smart contracts, enabling them to restake their ETH or LST and extend cryptoeconomic security to various network applications, thereby earning additional rewards.

Restaked Points

Restaked points serve as a metric for gauging your contribution to the collective security of the EigenLayer ecosystem. They represent a measure of staking involvement, quantified as the time-integrated amount staked in units of ETH-hours.
