Binance Announcement of wBETH: Binance Introduces Wrapped Beacon ETH (WBETH) on ETH Staking | Binance Support

Token Address:

Protocol Description:

Binance is now enabling users to stake ETH and obtain a utility token called Wrapped Binance Beacon ETH (“wBETH”), which serves as a liquid representation of their staked ETH.
wBETH is accessible on both the Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain networks and can be acquired by participating in Binance’s ETH staking program, either through the wBETH token contract’s deposit function or directly on the Binance platform.
The exchange rate between wBETH and BETH will increase daily, reflecting the staking income generated through Binance’s ETH staking program. And it can be converted back to BETH and redeem ETH in binance. The exchange rate will be updated on a daily basis and max rate limit is APR 15%, and it’s the same on BSC and ETH. More details will be provided on Ethereum 2.0 Staking | Stake Ether & Get BETH | Binance


Adding a wBETH/ETH pool to the Gauge Controller will not only provide an opportunity for users to stake wBETH alongside ETH on Ethereum, but also attract more users to the platform. By allowing users to earn rewards in CRV tokens, it will deepen the liquidity for both wBETH and ETH, improving trading efficiency and fostering synergy between the two assets. Furthermore, it will enable Curve to continue expanding its role within the DeFi ecosystem and attract more users seeking liquidity mining returns.


  1. Deploy the wBETH/ETH pool and gauge contracts.

  2. Add the wBETH/ETH pool and gauge to the Gauge Controller.

  3. Allow users to stake wBETH/ETH LP tokens in the gauge to start earning CRV tokens.

  4. Stimulate user participation in staking wBETH/ETH LP tokens in the gauge by marketing and promoting the new pool and gauge through social media platforms, blog posts, and targeted advertisements.

  5. Monitor staking performance and user engagement in the gauge, making necessary adjustments to enhance the user experience and accommodate the demand for wBETH/ETH swaps.


We believe that adding the wBETH/ETH pool and associated gauge to the Gauge Controller will attract more users interested in trading and providing liquidity for popular DeFi tokens such as wBETH and ETH. Through this addition, Curve can strengthen its position within the DeFi ecosystem, allowing for more seamless and efficient transactions between users. By offering CRV rewards to users for staking wBETH/ETH LP tokens, Curve will continue to incentivize user participation in the platform and maintain its role as a leading liquidity provider in the DeFi space.

The wBETH contract on BSC has been updated, addressing the issue where the “rescuer” role had access to the ETH stored in the wBETH contract. With this update, the security concerns related to unauthorized access have been resolved, ensuring improved safety for users and their assets.
