veSIS

Introduction

Looking for the user guide? Please scroll down.
Symbiosis supports liquidity pools with {stablecoin <> sToken} pairs to implement cross-chain swaps. Any user who adds liquidity to a liquidity pool automatically becomes a liquidity provider and receives rewards for providing liquidity.
Liquidity provider fees are charged for all swaps performed on these liquidity pools. Part of the fees goes to liquidity providers, another part to the owner of the liquidity pools. There is nothing new; it’s how an AMM liquidity pool works. What's interesting is how Symbiosis manages its share of the fees.
Symbiosis distributes its share of the fees amidst the users staked their SIS tokens to the Symbiosis protocol.

How it works or veSIS in a nutshell

There are two parties:
  1. 1.
    The users who stake SIS tokens, and
  2. 2.
    Symbiosis who distributes rewards to these users.
Scheme 1. veSIS

Users’ rules

  1. 1.
    A user stakes SIS tokens for a while, let’s say for one month or one year. In exchange the user receives veSIS tokens (it’s not LP tokens).
  2. 2.
    The user (the holder on veSIS tokens) claims their rewards when the rewards become available or accumulated rewards to save on fees on transactions.
The rewards are accrued weekly, and it’s in SIS tokens. Its amount depends on the size of the user’s stake and the fee amount collected on the liquidity pools owned by Symbiosis.
The staked SIS tokens stay locked on the contract and can be withdrawn once the staked term is over.

Symbiosis’ rules

  1. 1.
    Symbiosis collects its admin rewards from all liquidity pools owned by Symbiosis. It happens weekly, and it consists of two parts:
    1. 1.
      Claim fees locally,
    2. 2.
      Collect claimed fees from all blockchains supported by Symbiosis.
  2. 2.
    Since the liquidity providers’ fees are in the tokens of the liquidity pools, Symbiosis exchanges the collected stablecoins for SIS tokens.
  3. 3.
    Symbiosis deposits obtained SIS tokens on the Reward Distributed contract. Its logic allows users to claim the rewards at any time.
  4. 4.
    Symbiosis may also add additional SIS tokens to increase rewards for the stakers.
Fees for transactions are deducted from the collected fees.
