Introduction

LP staking is the first DeFi interchain product deployed within the Waves blockchain network. Staked USDT cryptoassets are accumulated in the Waves blockchain, and then proxied into the DeFi products of the Ethereum ecosystem. Staked USDTs are governed by an open-source public smart contract. This makes all transactions transparent. You can always audit the smart contract on your own and make sure it is safe and reliable.

While transferring, for example, USDT to staking, you are supposed to receive an LP asset - USDLP. The LP asset is a guarantee that your staked assets are transferred to the staking smart contract. You can withdraw staked assets from staking at any time and receive your accumulated income. When you withdraw assets from the staking, your LP asset is exchanged for staked assets at the new higher rate. The difference between the LP asset rate at the moment of transferring to staking and the increased rate at the moment when you take assets and staking is your income. This difference can only be positive, as the smart contract ensures that the value of LP asset never falls. The LP asset value is calculated using the formula.

Important: The process of unstaking your USDT cryptoassets takes 20 160 blocks (about 2 weeks).

Note: at the moment, LP staking is only available in the web and desktop versions of the Waves.Exchange. LP Staking will appear in mobile apps soon.
