How does the Staking Pool work?

Pool Delegates and Maple Token Holders will deposit a combination of MPL and stablecoins into a Balancer Pool in exchange for Balancer Pool Tokens (BPT). MPL Holders will be able to select which pools to stake their BPTs to begin collecting Ongoing Fees. To align incentives with Liquidity Providers and stakers, Pool Delegates will be required to stake in their Liquidity Pools to provide a reserve of first-loss capital.

In the event of a collateral shortfall after liquidation, the outstanding amount can be claimed from the Staking Pool to be redeemed on Balancer for stablecoin which is then distributed to the Liquidity Pool.
