Discounts and Premiums on Ethereum LSD Falls Before Shanghai 2023 Upgrade
In anticipation of the Shanghai-Capella upgrades, discounts and premiums on Ethereum liquid staking derivative tokens (LSD) have fallen.

According to The Block discounts and premiums for Ethereum liquid-staking derivative (LSD) tokens have fallen in anticipation of the upcoming Shanghai Capella upgrades. They have fallen to their nominal value by 0.17% – 1.42%. LSDs are tokens that are issued in exchange for ether investments in the network. They are used to increase liquidity because the underlying Ethereum is locked and cannot withdrawn until the impending upgrades. Each LSD is usually backed by one token. Rocketpool and Coinbase operate slightly differently as they are non-rebasing tokens. This means that they can be used to free up liquidity. These negative premiums have been falling in recent weeks, ahead of Shanghai. LSD from Coinbase saw the largest decrease in its negative premium. It fell by 1.42%, but was 2.7% below its nominal value. The most significant decrease in negative premium for Coinbase’s LSD was a drop of 1.42%, but it is still 2.7% below its nominal value. Because withdrawals can take up to a week, this means that people who want to cash out quickly on the open market may pay a premium.
