Referral Program Whitelisting [Ethereum]

Hey, it’s Scoopy Trooples from Alchemix.

The Alchemix Protocol would love to join the referral program whitelist. Alchemix is a CDP platform specializing in self-repaying, non-liquidatable loans ‚essentially an advance on your future yield. We have two core products currently, alUSD and alETH. We have also just launched our v2 architecture, which enables multi-collateral, multi-strategy CDPs on Alchemix.

The Alchemix core team has been working on a wstETH adapter for alETH to add it as collateral type, and we are now close to releasing it. Users will be able to deposit either ETH or wstETH into Alchemix for alETH collateral, with the ETH deposits being deposited into Lido wstETH. When withdrawing from the system, users can withdraw wstETH, or use a zap that sells their wstETH back to ETH.

We believe that wstETH with be an enormously popular addition to Alchemix, enhancing functionality for existing users, and attracting more users for Lido products. We at Alchemix are excited to enhance the utility of holding Lido wstETH and for wstETH to enhance the Alchemix protocol.


The best way to contact us at [email protected], or feel free to reach out to me on twitter or telegram @scupytrooples


We have a solid history of core and community lead governance, and are approaching our 40th Alchemix Improvement Proposal. We currently use a combination of snapshot and a community multisig to facilitate governance, and will upgrade to a full DAO with on-chain execution. The members of the 5/8 community and dev multisig have had a sterling track record in administering the governance mandates.

Governance discussion takes place primarily on our Discord and Forum

htt ps://

If accepted, it will be our contract that is depositing the ETH into Lido, but we’d prefer for the referral payout to go to the operational multisig.

Hello @frontalpha, hope you are well.
I am Yuhan, from CoolWallet.
Thank’s to your team, we’ve been whitelisted to the referral program and we are ready with our app adjustment to incorporate lido.

Because of the change to our corporate wallet address, would you add our new wallet address to the whitelist please.
New wallet address: 0xbAC452d6EFDc8F9450C1eD6dDe66DF62f01e6A4D

If there is only one address allowed, then please kindly replace our old address(old: 0x05ECAf39376088D7C8bF1aCc06015F71e35bFE35) with the new one above. Many thanks!

Hey Team

Hi there @MineDeFi @frontalpha,

  • Platform name: Index Cooperative
  • Background information: Index Cooperative is the leading on-chain strategy token provider, supporting simple and easy products which enable investors to access a range of crypto investment strategies in one-click. We are already a partner of Lido’s, using Lido as a money lego in our Internally Compounding Ethereum Index (icETH) product. We hope to do much more together!
  • How you intend to make use of the Lido referral program: We will will use potential Lido referral rewards to help increase the economics of our products (including icETH), thus driving their success, and in-turn even greater usage of Lido’s staking infrastructure. We also intend to generate an amount of PR for our partners in icETH, such as Lido, via a separate grants application.

Look forward to hearing from you!


Hi Team,

I would also like to whitelist 0x42455BAeFAaAA545c1Cf501329D21aCeC1dAA635 as part of the Idols NFT project. This address is our new zapper contract we deployed which will allow users to directly bond ETH to receive our ERC-20 token VIRTUE, while staking ETH with Lido behind the scenes as a intermittent step.

Morning guys! I’m reaching out to inform you on possible changes that could come to the referral program. I feel like there hasn’t been enough exposure and wanted to make sure you guys had an opportunity to comment and vote on the changes to the referral program.

Gov forum discussion: Referral Program Reform

Snapshot vote:

Lido has stopped accepting new applicants until we sort out the changes so apologies if you have been wondering why you haven’t heard back from me about your application!

Discord is frontalpha#0210 if you want to chat!

  • Platform name:
  • Background information: Cryptocoinzone is a site comparing the best interest rates and staking rewards for many different cryptocurrencies, including Ethereum ETH. We would like Lido as an alternative here.
  • How you intend to make use of the Lido referral program: I will list Lido where appropriate on my site:

Newly whitelisted referrals WITHOUT a rewards cap of 300 ETH per period:
Nexo- 0x6914fc70fac4cab20a8922e900c4ba57feecf8e1

Newly whitelisted referrals WITH a rewards cap of 300 ETH per period:

@Cryptocointrade I need an address you would like whitelisted

Your referral URL is Stake with Lido | Lido + the whitelisted address you submitted.

For example, the referral link for @iicc is

Stake with Lido | Lido

Liquid staking with Lido. Stake Ether with Lido to earn daily rewards while keeping full control of your staked tokens. Start earning rewards in just a few clicks.

Please make sure to make your referees follow referral program terms and conditions breaking which leads to declining rewards and potentially disqualification for a referral.


1.)Cycle staking. Cycle staking is using the same amount of ETH multiple times by converting stETH back to ETH and staking it again

2.) Removing liquidity from liquidity pools. This affects the stETH/ETH price peg so Lido will not incentivize that behavior with referral rewards. Liquidity pools include 1inch, Curve, Balancer, or Sushiswap.

3.) Adding/removing one sided liquidity to stETH / ETH pools with liquidity mining programs (such as Curve, Balancer, SushiSwap). Balanced stETH / ETH liquidity mining is very welcome and will referral rewards will still be issued.

4.) Other actions that are directly or indirectly affecting the ETH:stETH peg.

5.) Staking involved in criminal activity or a hack.

6.)Staking of ETH borrowed on lending/borrowing protocols (like Aave and others) is not going to be rewarded. It also relates to ETH that was bought with any other borrowed cryptocurrency (like DAI).

It is up to your discretion to disclose these rules to your customers/community members. Lido will only disqualify rewards for abuse cases but not all of your rewards. However, if we find a trend of continued abuse from your referral address Lido can decide to remove you from the referral white-list.

Lido has also created a telegram channel for any support issues you have, however you are welcome to contact us anyway you want.

If there are any issues or you feel that you should be included in the referral program reach out to me
at discord (frontalpha#0210)

There are two updates that the community should be aware of:

Referral Program Reform
-A discussion on reforming the referral program has been ongoing to allocate more funding for the referral program and change the amount of rewards that are earned. Referral Program Reform

Error in rewards calculation and reimbursement

The way that LDO referral rewards were being calculated from periods 5 through 8 were incorrect and some referral partners will be receiving additional LDO rewards for period 19.

According to Lido’s terms and conditions rewards are calculated 14-day TWAP(Time weighted average price) from the end of a 14-day payment period. However, during periods 5 through 8, rewards were being calculated 14-day TWAP from the beginning of a payment period. This was incorrect. This error was discovered after a referral partner did some accounting and found some irregularities in rewards they should be entitled to.

After Lido confirmed the error we went back and took account of all the referral partners that should have earned more rewards during those periods. To see if you are intitled to more rewards see the following google doc:

(Referral Program Discrepancy - Google Sheets)

For period 19, these discrepancies will be included in the payout through direct payments or through our partnership with Deversifi L2 solution.

If you have more questions or concerns about how rewards are calculated or how we discovered the errors please reach out to me at discord at frontalpha#0210 or twitter at @frontalpha_eth

Dear Lido team

I’m Crypto blogger my site provide news and educational content for Thailand crypto industry

I would like to help express benefit of Lido for incoming of the merge
my address : 0x0c44367bEfE26e4Ee97950A902cDe3aF3bE272D2

Hello, I am interested in being Whitelisted for the Lido Referral Program. I am an affiliate marketer and content creator having generated a significant amount of high value referrals for 1inch DEX, Brave Browser, and many other programs.

In addition to being an advocate of Lido I also have a vast network of investors who are interested in DeFi and while I do not recommend just any program to them, I absolutely feel comfortable with recommending Lido.

I only recommend projects and programs that help promote my credibility, not hurt it and therefore I am interested in promoting Lido to not only provide valuable opportunities to my network but in return the quality of Lido would also help to solidify my reputation. I do thank you for taking the time to read my post and I hope to hear from you soon.

The wallet I am interested in using is the same wallet I am using to stake with. My referral earnings would be put back into Lido for additional staking rewards. Thank you.



Due to business increasing, we’d like to apply 3 more addresses below to be whitelisted. Please also add them to the reward direct payment white list instead of getting rewards from deversifi. Thanks.
