What are the risks of staking with Lido/Rocket Pool?


Popular consensus is that Lido is not a good choice for staking because of it’s ever growing centralized presence. Some argue a wrapped token of stETH isn’t mutually interchangeable as ETH.

With the collapse of LUNA and several DAO hacks in the space, I’m very skeptical how and if I should stake. A lingering concern I have is trust.

There’s always a risk with the smart contract being hacked or one day rETH suddenly becomes worthless next to ETH.

Should I just kick the can and eventually reach 32 ETH so I can solo-stake myself or maybe someone can shake some sense into me?
