Time-Weighted Staking (APR Boost)
The concept of time-weighted staking has been around for a while and is a proven model used by several projects in the Play-To-Earn space.
For AAG’s Staking Program, you can choose a flexible lock-up period to stake either your $1AAG tokens or LP tokens from a minimum of 2 weeks to a maximum of 26 weeks (6 months). The longer your tokens are locked up, the higher your rewards, with a time-weighted boost of up to 1.5x. This means that locking up your $1AAG for 26 weeks will give you a 50% higher yield than locking up for only two weeks.
Here’s an example of the weights:
- 1.You choose the minimum 2-week lock-up: Weight = 1x
- 2.You choose an 8-week lock-up: Weight = 1.06x
- 3.You choose a 16-week lock-up: Weight = 1.33x
- 4.You choose a 26-week lock-up: Weight = 1.5x
It’s important to note that these weights are irrespective of the APR at the time (which is determined by several factors such as the base rate we specify in the contract, the number of stakers in the pool, and the total number of $1AAG rewards provided)
Many staking contracts will require you to restake your amount, costing you time and Gas; instead, we wanted to simplify the process for our holders and auto-enroll you into the same staking pool. This means that, for example, if you locked up your stake for 8 weeks, you will still earn the same APR even when the lock-up is over. Therefore, you can choose to either leave your amount to stake or unstake that amount (resulting in your rewards being claimed).
