Staking (🌳,🌳)
Staking is the primary profit distribution mechanism of the protocol. it is designed to be the primary mechanism of value accrual for the majority of users. For most, the best thing to do is to simply stake and compound the KLIMA you acquire.
Whenever the protocol has an excess of reserves per token (i.e when the RFV of the treasury is higher than the assets needed to back KLIMA), the protocol will mint and distribute tokens to the stakers. The amount minted and distributed is controlled by a variable named the reward rate. This is the % of supply that is rebased. This massively slows down how fast the protocol expands supply, as doing so is detrimental to the health (rapid expansion without backing causes a price collapse)
As of today, 90% of the profits are given to the stakers, and 10% are given to the DAO.
Klima and sKLIMA always has a 1:1 ratio, meaning that you will always obtain 1 sKLIMA for every 1 KLIMA and vice versa.
KLIMA=sKLIMAKLIMA= sKLIMA
When a rebase occurs, the treasury deposits KLIMA into the distributor contract, which deposits it in the staking contract. Since there is now more KLIMA then there is sKLIMA, the sKLIMA is rebased to keep them in parity.
RewardRate=1KlimaDeposits/sKlimaOustandingReward Rate=1-KlimaDeposits/sKlimaOustanding
Because not all KLIMA is staked, the user gains a larger piece of the share of rebases:
RewardYield=RewardRate/(%Staked%Circulating)RewardYield = RewardRate/(\%Staked*\%Circulating)
This translates to APY:
(1+RewardYield)(36524/(BlockTimeInHours)(1+RewardYield)^{(365*24/(BlockTimeInHours)}
