LP Staking

Earn diverse rewards from Shade & its partners!

Staking Liquidity Tokens

Staking LP tokens is an industry standard as a means of providing additional incentives for liquidity providers to provide their liquidity. To date, the majority of DEXs require users to lock up their LP tokens in a rewards smart contract for a duration of time. The reason for this is to have the user become bonded to their LP position to deepen liquidity in the respective market.

ShadeSwap understands the importance of providing additional rewards to its liquidity providers both from the protocol and Shade's partners. However, Shade Protocol respects the liberty of its users. Therefore, ShadeSwap has Instant Unbonding for withdrawing staked LP tokens!

ShadeSwap does not require liquidity providers to lock up their tokens when staking. The user is free to unstake at any given point, instantly!
