Protocol Overview

Rio Network is a network for issuing Liquid Restaking Tokens governed by RioDAO. The RioDAO refers to the community of $RN token holders and other governance participants that govern the network.

The RioDAO proposes the creation and configuration of new LRTs via the LRT Issuer contract which spawns the contracts that build out an instance of an LRT on the Rio Network. These LRTs coordinate the management of funds within the EigenLayer network, AVSs, and its dependencies.

The first instance of this process in action is with the reETH product. The LRT instance can then accept deposits and remit withdrawals in coordination with the Operators and EigenLayer.

In this section we describe the protocol architecture, design decisions, and how various components interact.

The architecture is documented in these topics:
