What is Marinade?

Marinade.Finance is a staking protocol built on Solana. You can stake your SOL tokens with Marinade using an automated staking strategy expertly designed for optimal performance and network decentralization. Users of Marinade can choose to stake natively or liquid stake to the same pool of 100+ high-performing Solana validators. When native staking with Marinade, there is no smart contract interaction, while when liquid staking you receive an equivalent value of “marinated SOL” tokens (mSOL) that you can use in DeFi.
