Pools

One of the numerous ways Defi allows users to make passive money is by staking tokens for rewards. When a user "stakes" a token, the token is transferred from the user's wallet to the protocol's smart contract. The protocol delivers rewards in the form of reward tokens and additional utility in exchange for this temporary commitment of funds.
PYESwap offers staking pools where you can earn unlock additional utility and rewards by staking your tokens.

A few things to remember regarding PYESwap's Pools:

  • You may stake an unlimited number of tokens contained in your wallet.
  • All Pools have a 5-day lock period which resets if additional tokens are staked.
  • Once unlocked, you can withdraw any or all of your staked tokens whenever you like.
  • You may harvest your rewards at your convenience.
Staking is similar to putting your money in a bank savings account, only with much higher returns.
When you stake cryptocurrency, you are depositing your tokens into one of the DEX’s smart contracts, and in exchange, you receive reward tokens at a variable interest rate. Once earned you can harvest your rewards, which will then appear in your wallet. You may add or remove your staked tokens from the smart contract at any time after the 5-day lock period.
NOTE: While staked in a smart contract your tokens will no longer appear in your wallet, but will be visible by connecting your wallet to the DEX.

Claiming Rewards

Each pool has an APR displayed next to it on the Pools page. This is the number of reward tokens that will accrue while your input tokens are staked, represented as a percentage of the total quantity of staked input tokens at current rates.
The more tokens you stake into a pool and/or the longer you leave them staked, the more reward tokens you'll earn assuming all other parameters stay constant.

Harvesting Rewards

You can take reward tokens from a Pool and put them back into your wallet at any time
There is an input token and a reward token in each Staking Pool. The main input token for the Staking Pool in PYESwap is either PYE or CHERRYPYE.
As an example, consider the "Stake PYE, Earn APPLEPYE" pool. PYE is the input token for this pool, while APPLEPYE is the payout token. As a result, users can stake any quantity of PYE tokens from their wallets into the pool, and they will be rewarded with APPLEPYE tokens.
