- How much can I earn Staking CRV?
CRV can be staked for any timeframe between 7 days and 4 years directly on Curve Finance.
The effective APY is generated by the fees collected from the protocol, which come from trading 50% of all trading fees on Curve as well as any other fees. Thus a higher trading volume on Curve results in higher APY for stakers.
The protocol fees are being distributed between all participating stakers.
Please note that those locking-up their stake for 4 years receive the highest possible APY. The longer you lock-up, the higher your APY. Locking-up stake for 1 year results in an APY less by a factor of 4. Please see the below examples:
1 CRV Locked for 4 years: 1 veCRV
1 CRV Locked for 2 years: 0.5 veCRV
1 CRV Locked for 1 year: 0.25 veCRV
1 CRV Locked for 0.5 years: 0.125 veCRV
