What is Liquidity Mining?

16 December 12:22

What is liquidity mining?

Liquidity mining refers to the act of providing liquidity to a blockchain and gaining interest based on the amount staked. This technique was devised in early 2020 by the developers of Hummingbot, which provided liquidity for autonomous transactions. In their white paper, the developers compared Liquidity mining to the PoW mechanism. Unlike the Proof of work system that utilizes powerful miners for validation, liquidity mining users pledge their tokens to provide token liquidity.

Liquidity mining is popular when it comes to DeFi projects or smart contracts. The transactions of most DeFi financial products rely on a set of rules. Liquidity helps to eliminate the need for brokers and save time. Without liquidity mining, users may spend a lot of time searching for willing traders to buy or sell their tokens. Besides, the user needs to ask one by one at a time which is a tedious task. The DeFi smart contracts solve this problem thanks to liquidity mining. Users that provide liquidity get rewarded a percentage of transaction fees or loan interest rates.

The annual return of liquidity mining

Participants get rewarded in Tokens for depositing their assets. Whenever transactions are made, the pool generates fees and distributes them to the users. The yields are calculated just like other markets using annualized percentage rate and annualized return ratio. Always check whether the pool has indicated APR or APY because it can be a little confusing. You should note that liquidity mining is very competitive hence making the yields volatile. Your stake and locking period determine the number of returns that you will get.

It’s common to find very high APY in DeFi. But you should know the higher the APY is, the higher the risks. For example, an APY of 8000% has a higher chance of impermanent loss than an APY of 8%.

Impermanent risk

One of the common risks that participants face is impermanent loss. The price can change drastically within a short period. This will cause your profitability to fall. You won’t lose your funds permanently, but the profits will reduce significantly.
