What is USDC Staking
USDC staking is a product from Waves.Exchange and the first DeFi interchain product on the Waves blockchain. Funds are accumulated on the Waves blockchain, which are then proxied into DeFi products of the Ethereum ecosystem, including Curve, Uniswap, etc.
When staking USDC, you receive the USDCLP assets in return. USDCLP is the assurance of your funds staked to the smart contract. The USDCLP price is formed from the ratio of the amount of USDC in staking to the amount of USDCLP assets in circulation. Income in USDC is accrued daily and added to the staking pool, while USDCLP is not issued.
At any time, you can unstake USDC, i.e. exchange your USDCLP assets to USDC assets at a new, increased rate. The difference in USDCLP price when you start staking and exit staking will be your income. This difference can only be positive. You can find out more in the FAQ.
