MetaMask, the popular Ethereum wallet and decentralized application (dApp) browser extension, has recently introduced a new feature that brings added convenience to Lido users. With this latest update, individuals can now withdraw their staked ETH from Lido directly to their MetaMask wallet, eliminating the need for additional steps. Previously, users were required to unstake their ETH from Lido before withdrawing it to their MetaMask wallet, a process that could take time. Now, thanks to MetaMask’s integration, this can be accomplished swiftly and effortlessly with just a few clicks.

To initiate an ETH withdrawal from Lido using MetaMask, follow these straightforward steps:
Step 1: Connect and Access Your MetaMask Wallet
First, open the MetaMask extension and connect to your wallet. Ensure that you have the latest version installed to access the new withdrawal feature seamlessly.
Step 2: Navigate to the Staking Tab
Within the MetaMask interface, locate the “Staking” tab. Click on it to proceed with the withdrawal process.
Step 3: Select the Lido Pool and Choose “Withdraw”
Once you’re on the Staking page, browse through the available pools and find the Lido pool. Upon locating it, select the option to “Withdraw” your staked ETH.
Step 4: Specify the Withdrawal Amount
Enter the precise amount of ETH you wish to withdraw from Lido. Double-check the value to ensure accuracy.
Step 5: Confirm Your Withdrawal
Click on the “Confirm” button to finalize your withdrawal request. MetaMask will then prompt you to approve the transaction.
