Staking and Uniswap V3 incentive mechanism
Earning rewards with Angle
The Earn page of the app lists all the yield opportunities linked to Angle and displays in particular the pools and farms where it is possible to earn ANGLE tokens. It is on this page that liquidity providers on Angle gauges (excluding Uniswap V3 pools) can claim their ANGLE rewards.
In this guide, we explain how to be eligible for ANGLE rewards as a UniswapV3 liquidity provider and how all LPs on gauges can claim their rewards.
Angle rewards Uniswap V3 Liquidity Providers (LPs) with the Merkl mechanism. This mechanism, relying on an offchain computation script, rewards LPs granularly according to the efficiency of the liquidity they provide. In turn, they have the opportunity to provide liquidity in the way they want and can fully benefit from the flexibility offered by Uniswap V3.
Currently the Uniswap V3 pools that are eligible to this system are the following:
Some important things to note on Merkl:
- You can provide liquidity directly on Uniswap or through a supported liquidity manager like Gamma or Arrakis and be directly rewarded for it
- You do not need to stake liquidity anywhere to be eligible for rewards
- All positions earn different rewards and get a different APR: your actual APR depends on the volume of the pool, the range you are providing liquidity on, and the price of the pool
- veANGLE holders are earning boosted rewards with respect to users who do not own any veANGLE
- only in-range liquidity is rewarded with incentives.
The App Earn page leaves multiple options for claiming your ANGLE tokens if you're involved in a gauge of the protocol:
- Claim from multiple gauges in one transaction by clicking on the
Claim Rewardsbutton on the right. When using this modal, you can select/unselect the gauges you want to claim rewards from and then:
Claim ANGLE: this claims your ANGLE rewards from all the selected gauges (except the UniswapV3 related ones) in one transaction.
Claim and Lock ANGLE: this claims your ANGLE rewards from all the selected gauges (except the UniswapV3-related ones) in one transaction and locks them into your existing ANGLE lock. This increases your veANGLE balance and doesn't affect your lock expiration date. NB: this is only possible if you already have ANGLE locked. You can lock ANGLE here.
