Staking Pool Cover

Retail staking will become available four to eight weeks after the launch of the first Liquidity Pool on Maple.

Maple creates economic security for their Liquidity Providers through their Staking Pool system. To participate, Stakers deposit liquidity into the MPL:USDC 50/50 pool on Balancer to receive BPTs. With these BPTs, users will be able to decide which pool to stake to provide first-loss capital. Pools will offer different fees and drawdown to those staking BPTs.

Pool Delegates must stake a minimum of $100,000 worth of BPT when they establish a pool. This creates a level of security for Liquidity Providers. The amount of BPTs required to create a pool is subject to change by Maple DAO vote.
