Lido Stake ETH (stETH) Continue to raise concerns While its value deviates from ETH, token liquidity continues to be depleted. Both Celsius and 3AC are recognized as large holders of stETH, and if further holdings need to be liquidated, a self-reinforcing downward spiral of stETH can occur.
You need to worry about why stETH and the ETH “peg” break.

Cryptographic market cleanup seems to have reached a critical mass as cracks are beginning to appear in over-leveraged and poorly managed companies across the industry. These are also not small entities. First TerraUSD, then Celsius, and now three arrows. All three are multi-billion dollar mammoths, and the problem is felt throughout the ecosystem, affecting several other market participants in the process. The market has already witnessed an incredible sellout by force, but as stETH price discovery progresses, it can be a bit more painful.
There is one important issue for both investors and traders. Is the market already oversold and is it pricing potential damages? Or is the worst still felt because the giant hasn’t fallen yet? Bitcoin and Ether have already fallen by about 70% and 80%, respectively, from record highs, with little or no relaxation in short-term bounces. How much short-term downside remains? How many more projects have gone bankrupt?
Despite the pain, purification of this market was probably necessary and needed to remove the unsustainable and dangerous parts from the crypto puzzle. Lessons will be learned, systemic risk will cause their confusion, and will eventually burn out. It may take some time, but the next phase of web3 will leave us with a cleaner, more honest and more resilient ecosystem.
In the rubble, there are new opportunities, real values, real innovations. The only question is who sticks to build it.
