Everything You Need to Know: Preparation for YieldNest’s Mainnet Launch

4 min readMay 6, 2024

YieldNest’s Mainnet launch is right around the corner. This is our biggest milestone and marks the beginning of a new chapter for us.

Once we launch on Mainnet, you can restake ETH to receive ynETH. With ynETH, you can earn base layer and restaking rewards.

Additionally, early adopters will have the unique opportunity to earn extra rewards from our Seeds & Pioneer Programs — more about that in future articles.

Are you ready to be among the FIRST to maximize your ETH rewards?

Let’s cover everything you need to know to participate in ETH restaking on the day of our Mainnet launch.

Try Out YieldNest via the Holesky Testnet

We encourage you to try out our Testnet to get a feel for how YieldNest works and to battle-test the ETH restaking experience!

Head over to Holesky Testnet to restake your ETH (received via a testnet faucet) and see how seamless the experience really is.

If you have any comments, feel free to provide feedback to the team via our official Discord. Using Testnet will prepare you for when we officially launch our Mainnet.
