LDO Deposits Surge As Cumberland Moves Millions To Exchanges

Cumberland has recently deposited 2.43 million LDO, approximately $4.7 million, into major exchanges.

Wallet 0xd7c5 (…), which belongs to market maker Cumberland DRW, transferred 928K LDO (~$1.7 million) to Binance alone. Over the past two days, Cumberland has moved substantial amounts of LDO to both Binance and Coinbase.

Currently, LDO is exhibiting a bearish stance around the $1.80 region. Despite this, Lido Finance has been remarkably profitable, earning $20.8 million in fees over the past week—surpassing Ethereum’s $19.8 million.

This was the second-highest weekly total in the crypto space, trailing only TRON, which generated $33.7 million.

On a monthly scale, Lido generated $98 million in fees, marking an 8% increase month-over-month. Lido continues to dominate the market with over $33.4 billion in total assets staked and remains the leader in staked ETH, accounting for 29% of the market.

About $30 Billion Contributed By Staking Derivatives 

Staking derivatives, including liquid staking and restaking, have contributed approximately $30 billion in staked assets year-to-date. EigenLayer, a restaking platform, is responsible for $15.2 billion of this increase, while Lido, a liquid staking platform, accounts for $11.1 billion.

For Lido, the yield comes from Ethereum’s fees and inflation. In contrast, EigenLayer’s yield is derived from applications built on top of its platform, many of which are still in the research and development phase.
