Option for Higher APY for locking TIME

In addition to staking, create a new option where an investor can realize higher APY for agreeing to lock their investment.

The APY would change and go up depending on the committed time.

Just an example:

  1. 95,000 APY - 3 months
  2. 110,000 APY - 6 months
  3. 175,000 APY - 1 year

Ignore the numbers… just to illustrate the point.

Or a sliding bar where they can just choose their APY/Locking period.

This will give people options to withdraw at the their desired time, if needed.

They can lock based on their level of risk.

This should create benefit for investors, community and the protocol.

It should make the price of TIME more stable.

This is just one of the options. Will share more.

Thank you.


It could be good to maintain stability. At the same time it would make people that don’t feel like willing to commit like left off because they would be getting less APY… So I am not sure about this.


I agree with this preposition. Incentive for longer locking in would benefit the system and is better then mandated locking in periods that others have suggested.

I disagree with Descartes on the idea this will make people feel left out. They themselves have to make the choice what they are committing to. The conviction of commitment to the project should be rewarded in some form.

also the added benefit of potential price stability would be healthy. We have TIME tokens in the treasury this could be the vehicle of rewards for these lock-in’s potentially.


I dont think locking TIME is a good idea, I have some DOT locked on binance and it really feels like I just dont have that money anymore.

I said many times here but I think what should be done is a new reward method on top of the rebases that is given to people who have held TIME tokens for a long period of time like RomeDAO is doing.


Rebase hopping isn’t an issue. TIME got walloped from over-leveraged traders getting liquidated. Sifu is working on a solution to prevent price cascades during future liquidations.


I understand how you feel. It’s all about risk management.

I am proposing to add an option for investors to realize higher returns for higher risk.

It’s a personal option and your choice. You do not have to participate and can continue with the editing earning method.

Everyone wins and everyone are happy.


I like the idea of locking for an APY boost. Frax Finance does a similar thing. Introduces forced stability.


I don’t like this idea of having a Certificate of Deposit (CD) for Wonderland. People may not participate in this program as the price can fall by 60% in one week. Lock the rebases for a certain period of time.

Like this idea. Win win for those who aren’t as concerned with the short term

I like the idea of locking, but we could go a step further and lock with a wmemo loan priority.
So that people who lock their wmemo for longer get a
Higher priority to open a loan via abracadabra.

Would be healthier for the whole ecosystem imo


100% agree, locking up TIME and rewarding these stakers with a higher % rate is a win for TIME price stability and stakers with their returns, this is what Illuvium is doing and from what I see they are doing well with this model


I think you could do the same concept but without locking. For example someone who has been holding for 3 months is given 10% more ROI compared to someone who just bought or recently sold. The moment you unstake, your incentive counter gets reset to day 1. Also maybe you should cap the incentive at some point, like maximum bonus is given at 9 months but doesn’t increase after. Just a measure to ensure long term sustainability.

(These numbers are just examples to get the idea across)


You can give people the option, but who would do it? I can’t believe there will be many that would agree to lock their funds in a project that’s still in the bootstrapping phase.

Price of TIME, like any other crypto or security sold on the open market, will fluctuate in price. That’s just how it is.


I think this is an awesome idea!!!

Yes do implement that

Yes I prefer this approach. Same benefit/incentive but people don’t have to make a difficult choice/commitment.

I like the idea of higher APY for locking TIME. It gives incentive to long-term investors.


I’m a fan of something like this. Others have proposed a mandatory locking in, which I disagree with. I’m in favor of more freedoms. If someone doesn’t want to agree to lock in for any amount of time, they shouldn’t have to. But for those that have a longer time frame, it would be a great incentive for locking their funds and providing greater stability. This has nothing to do with rebase hopping, as I don’t think that is a big issue. To me it’s basic psychology. Incentivize the behaviors that you want more of.


Why unequal treatment? You have a choice, to stake as normal today, or take higher risk and lock your collateral for higher APY.


If I were to lock my funds in year, I’d want the APY fixed at lock time. This would prevent a situation where the APY plummets and I’m locked into a yield that I didn’t agree to.

The problem with fixing the APY is that APY is dynamic and no one knows what the correct sustainable APY will be in a year. Therefore it’s impossible to offer fixed long-term APYs while also retaining the flexibility for the project to evolve and survive.

While I like the idea of locking for other projects, I don’t think it works for Wonderland as either users will feel ripped off when their APY drops after locking, or the project will fail due to inability to adjust APY.
