Farms has a higher APR because when yield farmers provide liquidity to a DEX like Pancakeswap/Uniswap, they are entitled to receive a portion of the trading fee ~ 0.3% (usually) and is shared based on their total liquidity share. They earn fees on a daily basis.

  • Have to provide an equal amount of 2 different token to the pool
  • Earn a portion of the trading fee ~ 0.3% based on your liquidity share
  • APR fluctuate constantly depending on the volume traded so it is not fixed

Higher volume = More Fees = Higher APR

Farms are exposed to impermanent loss risk.


Staking has a lower APR because it doesn’t have any impermanent loss risk (Single Token) because its main function is to secure the blockchain, earn block rewards and not to provide liquidity.

  • APR depends on Block Emission Rate
  • Single token staking - no LP risks
  • Mainly for securing the blockchain / earning block rewards

Farms focuses on gaining the highest yield with higher risks while staking is for earning consistent block rewards. Both has its pros and cons.

  • This is staking vs farming - BDL is just a bonus mechanism.

The explanation above can be applied to every coin - whether it has BDL or not.

I can see the same question being asked again once FXSwap goes live. FX doesn’t have BDL but FX farms will definitely have higher APR than its staking APR.
