Protocols / project information provided by Unified
Every protocol / project essentially has total value locked (TVL) in the form of cryptocurrency assets staked on the protocol / project.
- Each protocol / project may have multiple liquidity pools / vaults within it.
In general, users stake cryptocurrency assets into liquidity pools / vaults, and expect to generate a return in the form of rewards or emissions.
When users stake assets into liquidity pools / vaults, they receive a receipt for the deposit, often referred to as a Liquidity Provision (LP) token.
When rewards or emissions have a monetary value attached to them, this allows users to estimate the annual percentage return (APR) that they are receiving on that liquidity pool / vault.
- The APR is a function of rewards / emissions (at current rate) over the total value of the liquidity pool / vault.
- While rewards / emissions may follow a schedule in which it changes over time, by convention, APR is measured based on the current rate of rewards / emissions.
The most useful items of information for users are in the following table.
The above 4 information items represent the information that each user should have on a particular liquidity pool / vault that they have participated in. A user should not see liquidity pools / vaults that they have not participated in (as it is superfluous information).
