How Is My Accrued CRO DeFi Yield Calculated?

On a daily basis (UTC 00:00-23:59), your CRO DeFi Yield allocation will be calculated

  • based on your share of liquidity provided as a percentage of total liquidity across pools

  • adjusted by a multiplier determined by CRO staking level and term

***You must add liquidity AND stake at least 1,000 CRO to be eligible for CRO DeFi Yield

The daily CRO yield pool is equal to a % of CRO amount staked per day (with a daily minimum of CRO allocated as yield for a short period after launch)

Your accrued CRO DeFi Yield is updated at UTC 08:00 daily and is ready to harvest with the vesting of T+30 days or T+ 90 days -

  • Staked 100k CRO or above: T+30 days

  • Staked less than 100k CRO: T+90 days

You will be able to claim your yield from the DeFi Swap “Boost” section once the vesting period is over for your first daily accrued CRO yield

Please note that:

  • There is no auto distribution, you will have to submit an on-chain request to claim the funds.

  • Your daily accrued CRO yield vesting period depends on your total CRO staked amount of that particular day

  • E.g. If your total CRO staked amount increases above 100k CRO today, your daily CRO yield accrued today would then be “harvestable” T+30 days while previously accrued CRO yield would still be only “harvestable” T+90 days

The table below summarizes the CRO DeFi Yield multiplier by CRO staking level and term, which will be applied to the liquidity provided as a percentage of total liquidity across pools to calculate a user’s share of the daily yield pool. The table is valid at protocol launch and is subject to future updates. Please refer to the DeFi Swap web app for the latest version.

Under the current set-up, users can get up to 20x multiplier, if they stake 50,000,000 CRO for 4 years.

  • You are able to stake more than once, however, your CRO DeFi Yield multiplier is based on the staking term of the largest CRO stake + sum of CRO stakes.

  • E.g. To achieve a 12.0x multiplier, you must stake a sum of 1,000,000 CRO with the staking term of the largest CRO stake being for a 4-year term. Staking twice, once with a 1-year term of 100,000 CRO and the second stake of 900,000 CRO for 4-years.

Daily CRO DeFi Yield Example Calculation:

Let’s take a look at an example. Let’s assume that, as of today:

  • You have provided $10,000 worth of liquidity and

  • The current total liquidity across liquidity pools is $5,000,000

  • You have staked 100,000 CRO for a 4-year term

Given the above assumptions, then as of today:

  • Your share of liquidity provided as a percentage of total liquidity across pools is $10,000 / $5,000,000 = 0.2%

  • Your CRO yield multiplier is 6.0x

  • Your liquidity pool crop weight is 0.2% x 6% x 1,000,000 (normalizer) = 120

Also assume that as of today:

  • The total combined liquidity pool crop weight across all users is 500,000

  • The CRO yield pool size is 1,000,000 CRO

  • CRO’s market price is at $0.18

Given the above assumptions, then:

  • Your share of the daily CRO yield pool is 120 / 500,000 = 0.024%

  • Your accrued CRO DeFi yield for the day is 1,000,000 CRO x 0.024% = 240 CRO

  • Your annualized yield is 87,600 CRO, assuming all factors remain constant

  • Your APY % (assume linear returns) based on your liquidity provided will be 240 CRO x $0.18 / $10,000 x 365 = 158%

Aggregate CRO DeFi Yield Multiplier Example Calculation (More Than 1 CRO Staking Term):

The multiplier for users with multiple CRO stakes is based on the sum of CRO stakes and the staking term of the largest CRO stake. In cases where there are two stakes of the same CRO amount, the longer staking term will apply.

Let’s assume that you have 3 staking terms:

  1. 40,000 CRO for 4 years

  2. 7,000 CRO for 3 years

  3. 4,000 CRO for 1 year

Sum of CRO stake = 51,000 CRO

Term of largest CRO stake (40,000 CRO for 4 years) = 4 years

Round down the CRO staking amount and apply the multipliers shown on the table, the aggregate multiplier will be 50,000 CRO for 4 years = 4.0x.

Your aggregate multiplier will be 4.0x.
