The cryptocurrency market overall endured a bad summer on back-to-back pieces of bad news, ranging from Terra’s collapse to the Celsius Network’s liquidity crisis. But some tokens have bucked the downtrend and have actually seen their valuations go up over the summer.

Lido DAO helps underfunded users to become stakers on Ethereum’s upcoming proof-of-stake chain. It does so by collecting users’ Ether funds into a pool of 32 ETH—as required by the Ethereum network—and depositing them into the Merge’s official smart contract.
