What is Insurance Fund Staking?
Insurance Fund Staking is a mechanism designed for:
- the protocol to bootstrap its Insurance Fund; and
- users to have exposure to the fees generated by the exchange.
How often and how much does Insurance Fund Staking payout?
For providing liquidity to the Insurance Fund, Insurance Fund Stakers are rewarded with their proportionate share every hour.
The proportionate share is calculated: $Total Staked Amount / Total Insurance Fund$.
- The Insurance Fund is at $5000 USDC. You decide to stake $10,000 USDC, bringing the total to $15,000 USDC.
Your proportionate share of the Revenue Pool paid every hour would be 10000/15000 = 66%.
Each hour, as the revenue pool settles fees earned to the Insurance Fund, you will receive 66% of the payout and the Insurance Fund would receive 34%.
Is there a cooldown period for unstaking?
There is a cooldown period of 14 days for unstaking any collateral from the Insurance Fund.
