  • As a stablecoin holder, users wish to generate passive income from their stable assets, whether he or she is already a user of Platypus or not.
  • As a Platypus liquidity provider, users wish to maximize their stablecoin APRs without holding PTP if possible.

Staking Platypus LP In Echidna Finance

  • Step 1: Choose a stablecoin pool based on your current holdings by click on Pools. The interface for the USDT.e pool is shown below.
  • Step 2: Execute the deposit transaction

After you connect your wallet, the dApp will automatically detect your stablecoin and LP token balance. By design, all deposit operations require two transactions: first an Approve transaction, then the actual Deposit transaction.

You must complete both actions to deposit your LP tokens. This is a standard implementation for transferring ERC20 tokens and is not specific to Echidna.

By choosing Approve, the system will charge a small fee. And if you agree, click Confirm.

After that, you may view the details of your transaction. Once the amount has been approved, you may deposit the actual funds.

  • Step 3: Confirm the deposit

Once the amount has been approved, the Deposit LP button will become operational. You can deposit your LP tokens by clicking on it.

Once this second transaction is confirmed, the detail of your deposited assets will appear below the pool list.

Furthermore, you can claim rewards at any point, either pool-by-pool by clicking the black Claim button or by clicking on Claim All LP Rewards to claim rewards from all pools collectively.

So you finish staking Platypus LP In Echidna Finance, waiting to make a profit on the platform!
