Tranchess Partners RockX for ETH Liquid Staking

2 min readJan 3, 2023


Tranchess is excited to announce its latest partnership with RockX to bring liquid staking on Ethereum to our users. Tranchess hopes to further aid in the decentralization of Ethereum as a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) chain via a synergistic partnership with RockX; To provide users with an additional liquid staking option, through which they can earn the Beacon chain staking rewards while still remaining in a liquid position for their ETH assets.

Liquid staking is a revolutionary decentralized financial (DeFi) product that allows users to stake crypto assets without sacrificing liquidity by issuing a wrapped token of the staked assets, which can be used in the general DeFi ecosystem.

When staking with Tranchess, users will receive qETH, the liquid token for Tranchess liquid staking. Rewards will be accumulated via the fair value of qETH and users can realize their rewards in ETH upon exchanging qETH for ETH. More information can be found on Tranchess’ Docs page here. This purposeful design makes future DeFi collaborations much easier with qETH. Furthermore, as part of the Tranchess structured product, qETH can be split into BISHOP, a stablecoin-like token and ROOK, a leveraged long position of ETH. The mechanism provides qETH with more possibilities in future use cases as well as yield-enhancing flexibilities.

In response to the growing interest in liquid staking, this partnership between RockX and Tranchess seeks to meet the needs of users who want to earn staking rewards on their ETH while avoiding the typical pitfalls of self-staking and contributes to the decentralization of the overall Ethereum blockchain.
