Astroport upgrades unlocked: APYs, staking, and claiming

we’re excited to announce deployment of three massive UI upgrades on Astroport:

✦ APYs*
✦ Staking in ASTRO Generators
✦ Claiming ASTRO + third-party project tokens

*APYs are now visible on the pools screen as shown in the screenshot below. APYs are not promises or offers of an interest rate or other contractual obligation. Please see the Astroport Disclosures and Disclaimers for very important information regarding the nature of displayed APYs and how they are calculated.

To see a detailed breakdown of the rewards for each pool, hover your mouse over the APY:

The pool APY is generated by trading fees. Generator APYs include ASTRO emissions and any third-party governance token rewards:

If you’re not already, make sure to stake your LP tokens in the ASTRO Generators to maximize your rewards. You can do this when providing liquidity on Astroport by clicking the “Stake LP Token” checkbox at the bottom of the Provide screen.

If you were a lockdrop participant and your LP tokens are still locked, you don’t have to do anything. Your positions have been automatically staked in the ASTRO Generators.

If you provided liquidity on Astroport after the lockdrop, visit the pools page and click the Stake button. Then, select how much you want to stake in the ASTRO Generators.

Please note the following:

  • The ORION and xDEFI pools are currently earning ASTRO only. Dual rewards will kick in after those protocols begin sending tokens to the ASTRO Generators.
  • The APY on the xDEFI currently displays 0%. This figure is expected to update within the next 24 hours. Note that this pool is receiving ASTRO rewards. However, trading volumes are low and (as noted above) xDEFI rewards are not yet activated, so the APY may be lower than expected over a longer time horizon.

Once you’ve accrued rewards, there are two ways to claim them.

First, you can visit the Rewards Centre at the top right of your screen.

A popup will display your rewards and give you the ability to claim them. For lockdrop participants, there is also a Claim Rewards button on the Locked Liquidity screen.

Please note that rewards in the Rewards Centre update periodically… not in real time. You may need to wait up to 10 minutes (and potentially longer for MIR) to see tokens accrue in your Reward Centre.

Many thanks to the incredible Terra community for their patience as we developed and deployed these updates. The future awaits!
