There are three ways to stake tokens on the ApeSwap platform:
ApeSwap's Staking Pools allow users to stake their BANANA or GNANA tokens to earn BANANA tokens, or tokens from partner projects. This assists partners in bootstrapping adoption by distributing a portion of their tokens to BANANA and GNANA token holders.
To learn how to use our Staking Pools to earn BANANA and/or tokens from ApeSwap partners, visit the Staking Pools page.
ApeSwap also offer users who provide liquidity to the platform the ability to stake our native liquidity provider tokens, APE-LPs, into our Yield Farms to receive BANANA rewards (aka "yield farming").
Users can also stake LP tokens in ApeSwap's BANANA Maximizers to auto-compound their rewards as they earn them, instead of manually re-staking tokens or LP tokens back into the protocol.
If you’re interested in creating a Staking Pool and/or Yield Farm for your own crypto project, visit our Partnerships page to learn more about how to work with our Business Development team to achieve your goals.
