How much will I earn?

aTokens holders receive continuous earning that evolve with market conditions based on:

  • The interest rate payment on loans - depositors share the interests paid by borrowers corresponding to the average borrow rate times the utilization rate. The higher the utilization of a reserve the higher the yield for depositors. Check this spreadsheet to see the borrow interest rate model in action.

  • 70% of the flashloan fees - depositors receive a share of the flashloans fees corresponding to .063% of the flashloan volume.

Each asset has its own market of supply and demand with it's own APY (Annual Percentage Yield) which evolves with time. You can find the average annual rate over the past 30 days to evaluate the rate evolution, and you can also find more data on the reserve overview of each asset in the home section on the app.

Is there a minimum or maximum amount to deposit?

You can deposit any amount you want, there is no minimum or maximum limit. Still, it's important to take into account that for really low amounts it is possible that the transaction cost of the process is higher than the expected earnings. We recommend that you consider this when depositing very low amounts.

Can I borrow using stable and variable rate at the same time for one asset?

No, you can only borrow using stable or variable rate, if you switch to your desired rate it will switch the rate for your whole debt on that asset. Despite this you can have different borrow rates for different asset.

How do I withdraw?

To withdraw you need to go to the "Deposit" section in the dashboard and click on “Withdraw”. Select the amount to withdraw and submit the transaction. Also, you can use your “aTokens" as liquidity without withdrawing.

Can I opt-out my asset from being used as a collateral?

Yes. After depositing your assets, you are able to unselect the asset for not being used as collateral. The opt-out is available in the "Deposit" section within your dashboard. Simply switch the "use as collateral" button on the asset you would prefer to opt-out from being used as a collateral. * You can withdraw your assets without opting out of using them as collateral, as long as those funds are not used actively to borrow and the withdrawal would cause a liquidation on your loans.
