Now that you know what RainMaker is all about, let’s focus on how to stake RAIN tokens and earn rewards. As of writing, there are two ways you can stake your RAIN tokens:
- Single-side staking — users deposit RAIN directly into the pool and earn staking rewards. The staking reserve will allocate 20% of the daily rewards to this pool.
- LP staking — users deposit their RAIN-ETH Uniswap LP tokens after adding liquidity to Uniswap. The staking reserve yields 80% of the daily rewards to this pool.
Reward Calculation #
The markets set the stake rate in both staking pools using a variable market rate staking methodology. The staking reserve emits a fixed amount of RAIN each day, which is split 80/20 between the two pools.
Tokens previously allocated to the Copper Launch are used to fund the staking reserve. At present, 25,000,000 RAIN are in the reserve. When tokens begin to vest and unlock from the Community Incentives reserve, RAIN may be added to the pool.
Stakeholders who lock their tokens for a period of time receive a linear bonus multiplier. If the lock is longer, the bonus multiplier is higher. Staked tokens cannot be unlocked once locked.
Below are examples of how the bonus multiplier affects rewards:
- No bonus — staker does not want to lock their tokens
- 1.25x bonus — staker locks their tokens for a period if 13 weeks
- 1.5x bonus — staker locks their tokens for a period of 26 weeks
- 1.75x bonus — staker locks their tokens for a period of 37 weeks
- 2x bonus — staker locks their tokens for a period of 52 weeks
The bonus reward calculation is based on the below formula:
