What is vXDEFI? 

  • vXDEFI represents your claim on the pool of staked $XDEFI and $XDEFI rewards. 
  • 75% of all swap and bridge fees from all XDEFI products are paid to the vXDEFI pool and distributed to stakers. 

Why is there an exchange rate between $XDEFI and vXDEFI? 

  • When you stake $XDEFI you are swapping it for a claim on the overall staking pool. 
  • As more people enter the staking pool, and as more $XDEFI rewards are added to the pool, the relative value of each claim changes. 
  • The amount of $XDEFI tokens you can withdraw will always be greater than or equal to the amount you deposited.
    • You will not lose any $XDEFI tokens by staking them. 
    • The USD value of $XDEFI will change over time, so the overall USD value of your tokens might be more or less compared to when you staked. 
  • Notes:
    • When you stake $XDEFI tokens you will always be entitled to remove those tokens (plus any rewards you have already earned) at any time.
    • So you will always be able to withdraw at least the same number of $XDEFI tokens as you staked.
    • The USD value of your staked $XDEFI will of course vary and fluctuate according to market conditions.
    • There will be gas fees to pay when you stake and unstake (and withdraw) $XDEFI (for both the old and new staking contracts).
