Have you been HODLing FOX or perhaps recently claimed some FOX from our airdrop and would like to accumulate some more? Keep reading to find out how to add FOX to a liquidity pool which will increase your FOX bags!
UPDATE: New farming rewards will begin October 12th, 2021, 9am MDT.
You will need to unstake your LP tokens and add them to the new farming contract in order to continue earning rewards. You do not need to remove your liquidity.
Do I need to claim my farming rewards before October 12th?
When you unstake, you will be claiming your FOX farming rewards at the same time. This means you do not need two different actions for unstaking and claiming your rewards. Your bonus rewards will be deposited into your connected wallet.
In this article we will show you how to stake your FOX and ETH to a FOX/ETH pool on the ShapeShift Mobile App as well as our external page. Once your funds are staked in either place you can return to the app or the external page to view your earnings and withdraw your FOX at any time. To remove your staking position, you can reference this article.
