What is staking?

Stakers receive 50% from the protocol revenue. You can exit staking without a penalty whenever you wish.

What is locking?

Just like staking, locking means you receive a share of protocol fees. Because you are committed to the MilkyDex protocol by being locked for three months, you will also receive penalty fees from those exiting their vests early. You cannot exit a lock early.

How does it work?

For borrowers and lenders:
  • MilkyDex rewards are vested for three (3) months, but can be claimed early at a 50% penalty.
  • Exiting a vest early always incurs a 50% penalty no matter how early or late you choose to exit.
  • The 50% penalty paid is distributed continuously to MilkyDex lockers.
For lockers:
  • The lock date are grouped by the week. Any lock between Thursday 00:00 UTC to Wednesday 23:59 UTC are grouped in the same week group, and will release at the same time three (3) months later.
  • The locked MID is subject to a mandatory three (3) months lock, and cannot be unlocked early.
  • MID rewards from locking MID can be claimed anytime with no penalty. You will keep the APR for locking MID after the three (3) months lock until you claim the newly unlocked MID.
