Unlocking LSTfi with Gravita Protocol

Rhett Shipp is the Founder of Gravita.

In this episode, we discuss how to get started with LSTfi using Gravita Protocol. Gravita is a friendly fork of Liquity, designed to provide users with interest-free loans backed by ETH Liquid Staking Tokens (LSTs) such as rETH by Rocket Pool and stETH by Lido.

Rhett guides us through the mechanics of Gravita including how to open a vessel, the GRAI stablecoin, the Stability Pool, Recovery Mode, and what’s next in terms of growing Gravita and GRAI on Ethereum L2s.
