Where can I stake my TEMP tokens?


On Wednesday 8 December, Tempus launched its Crucible Rewards Program on Alchemist.
Alchemist is a platform that offers liquidity pool reward programs through the use of virtual vaults called Crucibles. Existing holders of a Crucible who have already added TEMP/WETH Balancer Pool Tokens (BPTs) to their Crucible are able to view and subscribe to the Tempus rewards program.
This 3-month rewards program, subject to extension, distributes 1,000,000 TEMP and 4,800 BAL tokens between depositors initially. Through the program, depositors benefit from a 10x scaling multiplier over the course of 60 days.
How to participate?
Deposit into the Alchemist reward program.

Bancor Single-sided Staking

Through the single-sided staking mechanism of Bancor, all $TEMP holders can now provide $TEMP to the $TEMP/$BNT pool on Bancor. Bancor matches the amount of deposit with $BNT of equivalent value and adds it to the pool.
As trades continue to happen in the $TEMP/$BNT pool, all single-sided stakers of $TEMP get paid in $TEMP with respect to their proportion in the pool.
The impermanent loss protection offered by Bancor starts 30 days after the deposit at the rate of 30% and gradually increases 1% per day until it reaches 100% protection.
How to participate?
Deposit into the Bancor Temp pool.

AMM Liquidity Providing

TEMP can be paired with ETH, USDC, BNT or FTM (Fantom network) in one of the DEXs mentioned above. As a liquidity provider, you can earn a share of all trading fees from the respective DEX.
How to participate?
Deposit into one of the AMM pools listed above.

How is the fixed APR calculated?

Effectively, fixing the yield means swapping all of the minted Yield tokens for Capital tokens. The amount swapped depends on the ratio of the tokens in TempusAMM.
For example, at the beginning of the pool, a user deposits 100 backing tokens to the pool. In return, he gets 100 Capital tokens and 100 Yield tokens. Let's say the Tempus AMM has a 100:3 ratio for Yield and Capital on a 6-month DAI pool. The user would get back 3 Capital tokens for the 100 Yield tokens they swap. In this case, the user ends up with 103 Capitals. Therefore, this results in a 3% fixed yield from the time of deposit until the maturity of the pool. As the deposit was initially made at the pool's inception, we get that effective Fixed APR of 6% with simple scaling.

Why would a pool have insufficient liquidity?

A pool always has a certain amount of liquidity depending on the amount of assets Liquidity Providers have committed. This liquidity is then also split between Capital and Yield tokens, this is also referred to as the "pool ratio."
If a user wants to deposit more value than the pool can accommodate, the swap part of the AMM would fail.
If you see this message during deposit try reducing the deposit amount.

Why would a pool have a negative yield?

Illustration of negative yield
When a pool is initialised, the share price at initialisation is set as the base APR. If the prevailing yields fall cause the over yield to fall below the base APR for a consistent period of time, then that causes a negative yield within the pool.
If a pool experiences a negative yield then the AMM is halted and further deposits, swaps and mints will be disabled, however, users with deposits can still withdraw from the pool.

How can the variable apr be lower than the fixed apr?

The variable apr is simply the apr of the yield-bearing token plus swap fees from the Tempus AMM. Occasionally, the variable APR can drop lower than the fixed APR due to a short-term drop in the variable yield with the yield source.
