The article notes that LRT projects could be under risk-taking pressure to compete with each other. EigenLayer highlights risks related to looping and leveraged strategies that could amplify losses, as well as the issues arising from liquidity challenges and unclear unstaking processes, resulting in losses when users are forced to sell their assets in markets with low liquidity.
