PERP Staking FAQ

The Perpetual Protocol Staking Pool is currently under construction, so details may change. Have ideas about staking design? Join our Discord!

Staking is expected to begin in Jan or Feb 2021.

Is the Staking Pool shared by all Virtual AMMs?

Yes, the Staking Pool is shared by all Virtual AMMs.

How long is the lock-up time for stakers?

Each lock-up time, or "epoch", as we call it, lasts for 7 days. The length of the epoch can be adjusted through governance.

Rewards given to stakers are available right away for fee rewards, and locked for 1 year for trading fee / funding payment reimbursements (80% locked for 1 year, 20% available immediately).

What risks are involved in staking?

The primary risk is exposure to volatility due to the 7 day epoch -- if the price of PERP changes in relation to other assets, you will be unable to swap it before the end of the epoch.

Is there impermanent loss (IL) for stakers on Perpetual Protocol?

In general, staking on Perpetual Protocol does not expose you to IL (impermanent loss) because you are staking a single asset. Your can always withdraw the same number of PERP as you initially staked.
