Since its launch on September 4th, Stride has been expanding at a rapid rate. With so many tokens, liquidity pools, and partnerships - it’s hard to keep up! That’s why we’re introducing the Stride Briefing. On a weekly basis, we’ll provide a concise briefing to update users on recent notable happenings, up-coming changes, and provide a summary of Stride’s liquidity pools. The Stride Briefing will also serve to get new-comers up to speed.
What is Stride?
Stride is a Cosmos-wide liquid staking provider. Using Stride’s liquid staking, you can earn staking rewards from Cosmos proof-of-stake tokens without having to stake them in the traditional way. Since your tokens remain liquid, you can deploy them in DeFi. You no longer have to choose between staking yield and DeFi yield. Thanks to Stride, you can have both at once.
Tokens supported: ATOM, JUNO, STARS, (OSMO support coming on October 29th)

Stride Liquidity Pools Statistics
In order to be useful to DeFi applications, Stride’s stTokens need deep liquidity. Liquidity is incentivized with STRD and OSMO. To provide guidance on future use of incentives, Stride can guarantee that the stATOM pool will continue to be incentivized at the same or a higher daily STRD rate for at least the next year.
