Reinvesting the ETH yield payouts from GMX into GLP
Reducing gas cost for users to claim and compound rewards manually
What is Auto-Compounding and What are the Benefits?
Auto-compounding refers to the automatic reinvestment of earnings into the original investment without any manual intervention from the investor, where in this case, Vaultka will be reinvesting the ETH payouts from GMX into GLP to grow users' investments.
With auto-compounding, rewards will be accumulated and generating higher yield with more accumulative underlying investment. Rewards can be illustrated in APY (Annual Percentage Yield), rather than APR (Annual Percentage Rate), providing a more accurate measure on the actual achievable rewards for user's deposit.
To illustrate how auto-compounding works, let's say you invest 100 ETH in GMX and earn a 20% payout per year. If you reinvest your payouts manually, your earnings will look like this:
Without Auto-Compounding in APR: 100 ETH + 20% payout = 120 ETH
Auto-Compounding in APY: 100 ETH + 22.1% reinvested = 122.1 ETH
The GLP Compounding vault is referred to as the Aged Vodka because it, like the Aged Vodka, exhibits the trait of improving results as time passes. Unlike a fixed APR, reinvestments trigger a compounding effect on rewards, resulting in exponential yield growth over time instead of a linear increase.
The GLP Auto-Compounding Vault will only accept deposits by the GLP token. Users can buy GLP tokens from the GMX page in order to deposit into the Aged Vodka Vault. The Vault will then automatically claims the ETH reward 3 times a day every 8 hours at UTC 0:00, UTC 8:00, and UTC 16:00.
All fees will be waived until 1st February 2024. After the date, management fees will be deducted before reinvesting the ETH payouts into GLP, where the fee will be dynamic based on the APR of GLP at that moment. Refer to the Fees & Parameters Page for more details.
