So swapping to an LP token for staking is a taxable event?

Mentions:#LP

Join chains like Optimism’s, Arbitrum’s, Base’s, & Polygon’s discord servers. Also hit up crosschain projects like Curve, Beefy’s, AAVE’s, & Frax’s servers. Once you joined those & after you learn what they’re doing start branching out to chain specific liquidity hubs project servers & learn about them. Then join the servers of the projects that use those hubs & learn about them. Research all the intertwined partnerships & six degrees of separation & next thing you know your flywheelin & LP chain hopping. Warning this can be extremely addictive & you need a game plan to enter & exit. I suggest choosing ETH/USDC as your liquidity vehicle to traverse throughout EVM chains. If you can’t get there easily you can’t leave easily ETHER. Also TVL & transactions/fees are food. Lacking TVL & transactions you’ll starve to dEaTH. Chain has less than $100 milly TVL pass or gamble. Don’t fall in love with a coin, but it’s ok to have a long term relationship with one. Don’t be afraid to pull out ETHER vs being somebody else’s coincuck.

LP is a scam. It’s never going to earn more fees than just holding the tokens. Staking on the other hand does not have impermanent loss, you’re just lending ur asset or participating in chain security. Do face slashing or smart contract risks but will still be profitable in the long run. Don’t do LP for people who do not have the tokens locked.

Burned liquidity = rugpuller has more wallets waiting to offload if price ever pumps in the future. Locked liquidity = rugpuller will be back to pull the LP and rug whatever is left when the lock expires. The void (deadwallet) has so many loopholes its essentially worthless and just a "hype" gimmick to lure sheep.

Mentions:#LP

I don’t think you understand what market cap means. Not every holder can sell at any given valuation obviously. The market cap is only based on the current LP ratio (for a dex) or current ask-bid spread (for a traditional exchange) which is based on the marginal buyer and seller. Obviously if every holder sold at once it would go to zero nearly instantly. All that being said sometimes these are “honeypots” meaning the contract is structured such that nobody can sell.

Mentions:#LP

Group of shitheads hangs out on telegram or discord or something. Somebody knows how to code a token and LP. Shitheads set token and some kind of effort throwing cash at a liquidity pool. Shitheads do rudimentary advertisement on Twitter or some crap and "launch" causing what you see. A few people buy in. Even fewer lucky ones are able to cash out. Token may have various fuck-you mechanisms, it rebases to worthlessness, maybe it issues a massive amount to shitheads on cue, honeypot where money goes in but not out ... programmable money, man. So many possibilities. Sometimes the shitheads probably think they're gonna go the distance and have a long term thing, but most of the time they're just grabbing money at the top.

Impermanent loss is a huge misnomer. Mostly because it applies to everything, but people only think it applies to LP for some reason. If you buy 1 ETH at 3000$, and ETH goes down to 2500$, congratulations, you just experienced an impermanent loss of 500$ by doing nothing. Every single facet of crypto, and investment in general, has a risk of impermanent loss. This is a hot take but dare I say: Impermanent loss almost doesn't matter at all, even slightly. The only thing that matters is what you do with an impermanent loss. Do you turn it into a permanent loss, or do you decide to be a big boy and hold on to your decision for longer than a week for the first time in your career?

Mentions:#LP#ETH

The easiest way to understand it, is to just not, and to take a chance with a (decent) liquidity pool for once, and stay in it for the long term. Highly recommend any RON pools (axie infinity) as they have insane APY right now (50-70%) I feel like if more people just took a chance with LP, they would find out how "impermanent losses" actually work. That's what I did, and within the first month I started calling them impermanent gains instead.

Mentions:#RON#LP

Why are you replying to a comment from 5 months ago? Anyway, if you know anything about Moons everyone who was staking in the LP from the time of my comment got rekted from the Ruggit Rug when Moons went down over 90% and Eth was stable, so yeah all that Eth turned into worthless Moons in that LP

Mentions:#LP

shit take it's far from 50/50 If your pool has rewards, you are almost guaranteed gains, because you are getting rewards, and the chances of your underlying tokens appreciating in more value than you receive as rewards is usually pretty rare. Example: RON/ETH pool gives 70% APY (yes it really does). The chances of either of these tokens increasing by 70% any given year, is pretty slim. Now factor in that you can compound your rewards and re-add them to your position. i.e. you start with 1000$ worth of Eth and 1000$ worth of ron for 2000$ LP assuming you re invest all your rewards, after a year of 70% LP, you would now have 1700$ worth of ETH and 1700$ worth of RON locked up in LP. Now lets assume ETH and RON both somehow went up 70% Okay, would you rather have 1000$ be wroth 70% more, or have 1700$ be worth 70% more? You have to factor in time and rewards to your impermanent loss equation, otherwise you are just leaving money on the table. I can see how the confusion discourages people, but your view on LP and IL is suuuuper flawed.

Mentions:#RON#ETH#LP

Found this because I was confusedly looking for the difference between pooling and staking. I always thought pooling WAS staking, or at least was a form of staking. But personally I've always used liquidity pools. Mostly just because I've lucked out and found ones with insanely high APY. Best example right now is Axies. You can either stake RON for 13-16% APY, or you can pool RON with various other tokens for 50-70% APY. The choice seems obvious to me, especially since the APY has remained consistent for about 2 years now (lowest I saw it go was like 49% I think). Right now I have RON/ETH(73% APY) and RON/AXS(64% APY). started 2 years ago or so (whenever they started the pools) with around 5-8k in there, and slowly been building that (split my rewards about 50/50 every time I cash out, and put half back into LP) and it's worth like 28k now. Impermanent loss is something that has always confused me too. Maybe I have just always gotten lucky with projects, but I've only ever seen permanent gains, with how much these pools usually pay out it's almost impossible to have impermanent loss, because your rewards will cover any amount of loss if it ever does happen (unless you are just choosing shitty project pools idk). Like I understand how it can go wrong, I've just never experienced it myself so it's hard for me to comprehend how you would allow it to happen. But then again I probably wouldn't pool or stake anything these days for less than 20% APY (which is why I haven't staked RON, there's almost no point when I can pool for quintuple the money). I don't feel like pooling needs high monitoring or has high risk. Every time I "monitor" it, it's because I am excited to see how much money it is making me today, or how much RON has pumped, or how much ETH has pumped etc. I also feel like this post ignored the fact that pools kinda give you a double safety. Pretty much both coins have to fail for you to lose all your money. With staking, only one coin has to fail to lose all your money. Like if Ron is down but ETH is up, things stay mostly the same in my pool, and it eventually corrects itself anyway (in this case at least since axies has been trending upward). Lastly, pools can give you some almost sketchily impossible gains. ***I can not stress enough how much I DO NOT recommend what I am about to mention, and it is the furthest thing from a suggestion, as it is an already failed project:*** AlpacaCity. Alpaca city was a project that started in 2020, and was failed about halfway through 2021. A lot of people were making a lot of money breeding alpacas and selling them, but this was limited to people who had "cracked the code" for breeding. The other two ways were squad farming (you "stake" up to 30 alpacas, and they farm ALPA for you based on their average energy levels) and LP farming (you "stake" ONE alpaca and some LP tokens, and it farms ALPA based on how much LP you have, factored with the energy level of your alpaca) about 99% of people went with squad farming because most people had dozens of low tier pacas, and most people didn't have anything very high energy, but also everyone is scared of the mysterious "impermanent losses". I decided to take the risk and try out LP farming (back in 2020 when it was still poppin) and quickly discovered that since almost no one else was doing it, the rewards were INSANELY high, not only compared to squad farming, but compared to anything else in crypto, even to this day. I only ever put in 1000$ into LP farm, but I was pulling about 200$ a week from it. This honestly never slowed down even after the project died, because the pools were all abandoned with money still in them. To make things crazier, during the dying period when 90% of the community was already gone, they changed the LP contract, which meant anyone with alpacas or LP in the old pool, would no longer get rewards, and had to move to the new pool. I was quite literally THE ONLY PERSON in the new pool for MONTHS. (it shows you lowest/highest energy alpaca in the pool. I had the highest energy, and the lowest energy was blank, meaning there was no other alpaca in the pool). Despite this, it seemed like it was still pulling rewards from the original pool, because my rates never changed. Which by the way, have been at 5,000%-20,000% APY for over 2 years now. If it wasn't for how dead and sketchy this project is, I would have put much more money into it, but never wanted to risk more than my initial investment of about 1000-2000$ (I spent money on a 9000 energy alpaca to make rewards better at some point). I would have to add it all up again, but I've made somewhere around 15-20k USD off alpaca farming since it started, and still to this day I am making about 200$ a month from alpaca farming, despite the project being 100% dead at this point. As long as this pool still has money in it, I am gonna drain it though. The best cow in crypto, but it's definitely emaciated at this point. To clarify: if I would have just held 2000$ as ETH for 3-4 years, I would have made no where near the amount of money I made farming alpaca. Which is why impermanent loss confuses me. Again, I have probably just gotten stuuuupid lucky when it comes to LP, but I think impermanent loss is just a skill issue honestly.

Look at the volume to determine. Generally, you are risking LP smart contract risk and they aren’t negligible. I would stake instead of LP.

You are absolutely right in that the profits could be directed to the users initiating the swaps instead of the liquidity providers themselves. This would of course then mean that swap fees would need to be in place as they are on other DEXs. This is actually the way Salty.IO was first implemented - with profits shared between the swappers and the LPs with the DAO determining the split. I found that gas-wise I could significantly streamline the contracts without the fees being in place at all. Additionally, with fees in place you can optionally have fractionalized liquidity across multiple fee pools for the same pair - which can increase gas costs to route through. The idea of directing the profits back to the LPs is that the yield then motivates deeper liquidity - which in turn provides the swappers with better swap rates. This of course reaches an equillibrium at some point. I'll add the case of user awarded profits versus LP awarded profits to my simulation stack (in a market of multiple possible exchanges for user choice) and report the results back here. I am not opposed to capturing profits for the users themselves, and am curious to circle back and simulate the effects after what I have learned over the last year.

ALGO has a horrible foundation driving it. They keep minting a shitload of ALGO to subsidize NFT bullshit that few want to participate in, as well as subsidizing their weak DEX offerings in an attempt to get people away from governance directly. ​ ALGO's entire strategy seems to be: * Reduce rewards for being governors. * Mint a shitload of ALGO to pay for special rewards to DEX stakers. * Encourage the use of ALGO-by-proxy tokens like gALGO and similar, with the idea being people should stake their ALGO with some unreliable DEX -> receive their untrustworthy token to use instead of ALGO -> participate in governance-by-proxy. Meanwhile, you absolutely cannot protect your assets with hardware wallets in this manner because you've committed them to some LP or similar, and have effectively transferred control to someone else in exchange for a spin-off of the actual coin. Which has no guaranteed price lock, since the match could go belly up and you're left holding the bag for a derivative product. ​ And, of course, the ALGO top dogs keep paying themselves a lot of money, while denying community direction via governance. For example, if something doesn't pass they will simply keep putting it up over and over and over again until they get the result they want. It is even worse not because xGovs can influence things instead of all governors. ​ And I say this as someone who holds a decent amount of ALGO. I like the project, it is fast and cheap, but the leadership is incompetent. They cut deals with stupid shit nobody cares about in crypto, like FIFA or buying ads in NYC, and you actually see negative price pressure from it because that could have been better spent elsewhere.

Great questions! 1) We are a relatively small project and the treasury is 100% used for the community. No one on the core team was given Bitcone (unless they owned the avatars that received airdrops, and only then their fair share) nor does anyone take a salary from the project. This means attracting talent is difficult since typically people want to get paid for their efforts. This also means the team typically will have other employment and the project, while important to us, does not pay the rent. We overcome this by fostering a great community and making Bitcone a community people want to be a part of. Speaking personally, I have put in so much work to the project because I love the "Compassion Over Negative Energy" ethos. I was to spread good vibes and I see Bitcone as a way to do it. The more we grow and the more people are exposed to the positivity, the more talent and dApps we hope to see people independently develop. 2) As a core team, the funds are held in a multisig wallet and can't be spent without a majority of signers, preventing a bad actor on the core team from rugging the project. Other than that, it's depends entirely what you consider market manipulation. We aren't VC funded and we aren't beholden to any entity, but like all crypto, if someone wants to come in and pump the price with 1000 eth and then sell their cone, they are welcome to do so. I will add that for a meme coin, our LP is very robust. As a % of marketcap, we have more in DEX liquidity than any other reddit-based coin, including Moons (I recognize there's a bit of liquidity on exchanges, but this is harder to measure). Also among Polygon meme coins, we have the strongest liquidity. The core team puts a huge emphasis on having strong liquidity to prevent market manipulation and we incentivize and teach new comers how to provide to the LP & inform of the risks. 3) We had 0xMacro audit our token contract using funds raised from the community for this. Internally, our developers share all their code for dApps with the team to catch any potential bugs. When community members have dApps they want to share, the code is audited by our developers before we allow the dApp to be posted to our sub. This is not to say everything will be 100% perfect all the time, but we take security very seriously. We know that an exploit can be the death of any token in the early stages. 4) Right now, all changes are proposed to the community via the subreddit. We take feedback and allow users to vote on proposals they want the core team to pursue. As we included in our roadmap, we understand we have outgrown this process. When it was a community of 100-200 members, this worked, but at over 13k on the sub and over 26k holders, we are looking to alternative options.

Theirs meme coins (Snek, Hosky), NFT projects, numerous dex, LP to to stake in.. etc.. decentralized oracles, decentralized storage solutions, etc.. AXO just launched which is an incredible trading protocol https://www.axo.trade/ Has everything you could want in a chain but deals with two issues.. 1. The hate and misinformation in this thread 2. USDT/USDC which are the key to liquidity. Both have brushed Cardano off numerous times. These two groups consist of 10% of the wealth in crypto and 70% of transactions. These two groups are centralized controlled corporations who mildly shady and can be shutdown by the government. These groups tossed money and were in bed with FTX and Gemini (two exchanges that never listed Cardano) i.e. It's hard to build a block-chain and carry the ethos of what it means to be decentralized when all that does is make you an enemy... Its easier in crypto to buddy up, take money, pay, and be part of the 'centralized' world then it is to try to not be. But the community it looks like within the next 6 months USDC will be coming to Cardano. The community is basically voting to pull out a ton of money from the treasury and pay them off.. Gotta play game 🤷‍♂️ Cardano has close to a billion dollars in its treasury to pay developers to build. The only question is if crypt9 devs got into crypto to work in a decentralized industry or for Blackrock 🤷‍♂️

I asked the devs about the v3 pool being included in the lore drops awhile ago and this was their response: We currently have not found a solution for including V3 in the snapshot as of yet. If we find a suitable solution we'll update you as well! It's because all the ERC-1155 V3 FT are minted from the same contract, regardless of which pair it is (meaning tokens that aren't BitCone as well). Unlike V2 tokens, where each Pair is an individual contract on it's own, which allows you to easily verify the LP Token holders of specific pairs.

It's a fine line, which is why I think some whales have to be on deck from the start. Probably guaranteed an allocation from a later issuance. They are "devs". Rando whales wouldn't touch a token with a LP that small. If it sits too long all the little guys lose their nerve. It needs to go up slowish and steadyish and also catch word of mouth. Over time. Those crypto discords, or telegrams, or wherever they are now ... they have serious cliques, I mean, sorry, communities. Or gangs. Strong backing from one of those is usually involved too. The same groups have big twitter networks.

Mentions:#LP

Right place right time right friends. It helps if the group of "degens" launching the coin has a few committed whales and a well connected network. I'm sure they started with 2 ETH LP, but for all we know that's a constructed narrative, and some whales slowly steadily pumped the price to create a longer term trend. That will get people's attention, if you're lucky. The degen groups specialize in wealth transfer. From you to them. If something like pepe goes further than a starting pump, even better. The devs whales and degens stand to make way more doing that than on a shitcoin pump.

Did you use an active management protocol like Gamma ? Their "management" of concentrated liquidity/CL pair (uniswap v3) made me loose money on my LP because of rebalancing, and they dare say it's because I didnt stake the LP (so no rewards but I still should get fees + NOT LOOSING VALUE IN PUMP...). TLDR: I hate Gamma and concentrated liquidity v3 pools for volatile assets.

I think it's very hard find a focus answer for such a broad question, we first need to talk about what we are pairing? Is it two stables? A stable and ETH? Eth and wbtc? Eth and a sh\*tcoin? V3 is basically leverage trading plugged into being a liquidity provider and unless you are setting maximum range and treating it like V2 as an average low net worth investor you are probably going to get wrecked even with a pair like Stable/ETH. You are going to get wrecked faster than the detroit piston using a tight range on a sh\*tcoin pair. V3 LP now is for institutional sized investors, or for farming airdrop on new chains. the average lower worth individual is better off just holding/staking the coins they want exposure to.

Scarce. NoDecimal Project overview: The total supply is 4096 and there are 0 decimals, meaning a minimum amount someone can trade is 1 whole token. Tokens cannot be divided into smaller parts, like 0.99, 5.5, 80.33 - it only can be, for example, 1, 5, 80. 0/5 tax with 4% going to burn. As there are no decimals, tax cannot be charged if the amount traded is less than 20 tokens. If you sell 20 tokens or more, you will pay tax. As a counter to the tax evasion, there is a guaranteed burn tax every 2/4/8/16 sells if the LP balance is greater than 2048/1024/512/256. 1 token will be taken as burn tax no matter the amount being sold once the sell counter reaches the number needed. After this, the sell counter will reset, and the cycle will repeat. If, for example, current LP balance is between 1024 and 2048 tokens, and the sell counter is on 4, the minimum sell amount will be 2 tokens, 1 of which will be taken as burn tax. So if you hold just 1 token, to sell it, you would need to either buy more tokens, or wait till someone else sells and thus reset the sell counter. This mechanism is automatically turned off once the LP balance becomes less than 256 tokens because the value of 1 token by that time will be too high and 1 token holders will become more common. Every 8 hours, or 1024 tokens in traded volume, 1 token gets nuked from LP if its balance is greater than 256. The LP nuke acts as an additional deflationary mechanism and a force that slowly increases the floor. ❗️Important for Uniswap (or similar platforms, like 1inch) users: To get a more accurate estimate on a token with 0 decimals, please input the amount of tokens you want to trade instead of the amount of ETH you want to spend. Also note, that on a SELL transaction that matches the guaranteed burn tax cycle, 1 token will always be taken as a burn tax no matter the amount that you sell. This means, that in order to sell a small amount of tokens (1, 2 or 3) you will either have to wait for someone else to sell to reset the guaranteed burn cycle, or set the slippage to a very high level (in case of 2 or 3 tokens sell). By the launch time there will be a bot to show guaranteed burn cycle information and other parameters.

It's a big problem though, LPing is absolutely essential to how crypto operates, why are so many LPs losing money? Maybe that means fees/LP rewards need to be higher? My stablecoin/stable coin LP was the only one I made profit on, the others seemed to lose money due to impermanent loss both when the market was up and when down.

Yes I beleive so. Yes there is impermanent loss. But let’s say you have and ADA/XXX pair. If One of those coins appreciates in value against the other, your liquidity changes by allocating less of the appreciating coin and more of the coin that depreciated coin to your position. The Value though, in terms of both coins when you do the conversion remains the same. There may be small differences, but it’s better then not having your coins in an LP if you ask me. For instance if I had ADA and coin X in my wallet. If Coin X goes down, I less value against ADA. But if I have the, in an LP, the value largely remains the same, mean whilst I earn rewards and I can continue to add to my position.

Take an ETH-ARB LP. If you only had ETH and ETH doesn't do much but ARB moons, you will benefit from that. But you won't benefit as much as you would have by just holding ARB. So you'd want to join this pool if you aren't sure which asset is going to outperform but want exposure to both. It's easier to understand when you view LP position similarly to ETF's in Tradfi (your tech ETF is going to go up when TSLA goes up, but not as much as just TSLA). Also easier to understand when you view it as entering with dollars - I'm going to take $1k and buy this LP position, as opposed to something like "I'm going to take some of each of these assets and throw them in this pool together just because it's there." You never want to LP if one of the tokens is trash.

This is an interesting question. I just got into LPs last month. I was frustrated with my bitcoin just sitting there and doing nothing. LPs are one of the primary ways to do this. You can loan it out but I’m not a bank. I want to provide service. The real question to ask is “what are LPs?”. That’s the question I started with. The answer is simple. They are Liquidity. So without liquidity no money is being made. You can think of LPs as kinda like foreign exchanges. You provide two assets and when people want to exchange those two products they can do so quickly. For the convenience, a fee is charged. This is a simple LPs primary source of wealth generation. Also, this is the simplest type of LP. The primary loss function of an LP is something called “impermanent loss”. Effectively this is the idea that if the two currencies diverge in value, and that divergence does not match fee generation, then you effectively loose the “opportunity cost” of just holding the other asset. Here’s another way to look at it, and this is not financial advice, but just how I understand it. Let’s build a hypothetical scenario. You have a type of wrapped Bitcoin like $iBTC or $wBTC. There is demand for exchanging that with some other token that we will call $sToken. In this equation, you have fiat. We will used $USD since everyone knows it. So let’s say I put equal amounts of $iBTC and $sToken into an $iBTC/$sToken pool. If both $iBTC and $sToken generally track each other relative to $USD, then you’re both making money from transaction fees in addition to any appreciation to $USD. Put another way, if you were going to hold two assets against $USD, and you are not putting them in any other interest bearing play, then LPs, as long as it has users, and that’s a big one, you need users for LPs to function, you should, theoretically, basically be a cash machine for liquidity. That is a very simple LP analysis. In my study of LPs the most interesting model I have seen is HydraDX’s Omnipool. They effectively spread out impermanent loss across all assets there buy tracking the pool as a whole. Their initial models and lab stress tests shows interesting results. However, lab tests and real world scenarios don’t have the best track record of aligning. That said, very novel idea to a complex problem. I am keeping an eye on it…

Depends where. Impermanent losses will fuck you up wrt just holding the underlying, however if the liquidity mining rewards and/or fees make up for that, then yes you can be profitable.

Beside the usual risk with contract interaction. I have made money LP and also lose money LP -understanding the token you are LPing. Go with token that have a decent vol on a chain that that is not dominate by whales (rules out ETH for majority of the folks) -know the risk of your pool being drain out leaving you with the less desirable token -be water. Move you capital around to the best farm possibly at the moment which includes but not limited to potential platform airdrops -if possible lower your cost average for your token purchase. Even best if you manage to get airdrops. -fees will kill your profit if you have a small size. Be aware of that. Or just don’t use ETH. Find a cheaper chain with activity (hint hint Solana) Averaging about 11-25% on my stable coin pairing and none stable coin pairing. Like most thing in this space. LP farming is competitive and quite PVP. Folks that are making money will not tell you the platform or the pairing they use. This is like Amazon FBA.

Honestly, look elsewhere for advice. Most here know shit about LP. They probably put in a few K and assume it will double bc the protocol said 200% apr - which is all bs. I assume serious LP providers use hedges to account for divergence loss (impermanent loss). The idea is simple, you want your total LP value to not change very much, if at all - just collect fees. Google hedging liquidity pools. Most of the articles are about options, but futures also work quite well though they add some risk.

Great post! Somewhat related: I've heard in Uni v3 you can use one-sided LP'ing to effectively place a gradient limit buy order over some range, and apparently this has benefits in that it accrues fees as well as do your intended swap. Do you have any thoughts about this? Is it a better way to swap / buy a token if you're patient?

Mentions:#LP

Yup, more or less my experience of several years of doing this stuff. In order to not lose money LPing you need to: * Ensure both coins will be around in several years and are fairly stable development wise. If either coin tanks, you lose everything. * Not lose to impermanent loss. If one coin goes up 500% while the other one stays flat, you don't split the difference with a cool 250% gain, it'll be much than if you had held 50/50 of both assets without LPing. * Find a pool that makes sufficient APR off of trade fees, without any LP incentives on top. Your best best is to LP for two coins with deep liquidity, with a similar total market cap. Big L1 pairs. Basically pairs of any big coin in the top 30 by market cap. This way you know the projects are mostly proven. The impermanent loss is minimized because they should make similar % moves compared to some RANDOMSHIT-ETH LP. Basically, find your favorite chain and LP the native token against BTC or ETH on the highest volume dex around. Not sure what the best tools these days are, but I've always just used [apy.vision](https://apy.vision) to find the best pools for coins I hold, and it's almost always most profitable to LP with ETH or BTC in an unicentivized uniswap pool.

Uhhh do you have any experience? The USDC half doesn’t lose value… it’s just betting on VVS price. The ETH LP is obviously doing worse. You would have more to worry about doing VVS/PEPE or some other dumb equivalent. If they both just lose then you’re SOL

Why wouldn't you worry about impermanent loss while doing half your LP in usdc? By default you are only gaining half the gains you would if you just held the token outside liquidity. Personally the only way I will ever consider staking a stablecoin as LP is if you are doing like dai/usdc or some other stablecoin combo and IL isn't possible.

Do some simple math to understand if profit is even possible from your LP position. If you set a range from $300-$400 and enter at $350, what will your stack look like when the price has reached $400? ($500?) Compare these returns to buy-and-hodl approach. Then estimate how much you'd need to see paid to you in fees to see a profit. The numbers will probably illuminate why this is a hard problem, and why people often lose money. The way to think about IL I think is "this is the money you would have kept if you did nothing, vs being an LP" You need to compare opening an LP to a buy and hodl. You'll probably find that it makes sense to have some LPs but that it makes less sense the bigger portion of your portfolio you're allocating to the LP. (Or, maybe you've set your range very long instead of setting it tightly around the current price, and then you should understand you're playing a different game...)

My experience is LPs are only profitable with some combo of: * 0.3-1% transaction fee LPs, or variable fee DEXs that increase fees based on demand (QuickSwap, Camelot) * When you use automated concentrated liquidity strategies (A51, Gamma), or you actively manage yourself (advanced users only) * When LPs are well incentivized (30%+), typically with a token you want to hold or is one leg of the LP. * Preferably when you want to hold both legs of the LP asset. * When you don't need to to access the assets you are LPing any time soon. * When price is generally crabbing (big ups and downs results in impermanent loss even with high fees). If you expect large price movement, just hold, don't mess with LPs. If you can find opportunities that meet some or all of these requirements, you will beat the market.

It *can* be. When SOL was booming I was doing LP for a bunch of stuff. Got around 4 ETH worth of profit. About 2 weeks ago I closed off all of my positions and camped them into stablecoins/eth. This was when WIF was at $0.40+. I figured that the meme train had run its course and there would be some sad days coming. For once, my call was pretty much on the ball. Here's what I would've had in my positions if I kept them LP farming: - WIF -59% - CHONKY -70% - USEDCAR -75% - WYNN -85% - MYRO -75% - POPCAT -75% - SILLY -50% And many, many more. Basically, you catch the latest trends and farm them while they're popular. Yes, you CAN make more if you catch a trend, buy it, and sell it at the top, but very few people including myself are actually profitable traders. With LP, you're hedging your bets and hoping for a few things: - Trading volumes are high - Your share in the liquidity pool is large - Fees are high - The price either stays the same or goes up There are problems too. You end up watching like a hawk. Rugpulls are very common, so the recent fad of the day might be a rugpull. You have to analyze communities, see if the community is solid, see if there are more holders than the usual few thousand rugpullers assemble to kill tokens after a big rise. (There are hundreds of these) - That metric doesn't always save you either, there are things like [this one](https://birdeye.so/token/BjBzvw6VX7UJtrC7BaYLG1dHBiwrXP1T9j2YfDEdP4zU?chain=solana) which started off, got listed on a big exchange, got 8,000 holders, then immediately crashed. It's stressful. I doubt I'd recommend it unless you are literally going to watch it 24/7 and pay attention to every single minute detail.

I am going to be honest, I was on LP for over a year: I just lost money. Here is why: * First of all the profits are usually not really good, like 1-3% for good coins, unless you have a crystal ball to see the future or are on shitcoin that have high yelds, in this case when the price oscillates you will loose everything you win in yelds to impermanent loss. * The LP or website that manages it (beefy, pancake whatever) can be hacked and constantly are, my vaults were on [beefy.finance](https://beefy.finance) and one of them was hacked I lost likem 2k in a day. LP hacks are really annoying and since you have to hold money there for years its actually pretty risky business, hackers simple drain the coins for a cent cheaper or whatever repeatedly * A lot of times the pools are deactivated, updated, token contracts are changed (v1,v2 etc) and if you don't remove your money it just stays there stopped, without any yeld. So its not really set and forget, you need to actively monitor everything. That sums my experience.

Allocating to correlated assets like stables, in a leveraged way like curve or uniswap v3 can provide good yield with relatively low additional risks to holding the underlying assets, can give pretty good yield if you can find high volume / low liquidity pools and incentivized pools. Pools between uncorrelated assets are a lot riskier, because you cap your upside but take the downside on both assets. You should want to find really high APRs and trade, that is have a plan to LP when the token is rising, and a plan to exit the position like if you were to hold it directly. Where you run into trouble is like with holding coins directly, they can just lose a lot of value. And in the case of correlated assets you can get into trouble if you don't understand the risk of any wrapped or obscure stable that is in the LP. Because if just one of the tokens in the LP goes bust you essentially lose the entire position.

“Can profit enough to cover tx fees”. Tell me you use ethereum without telling me. In Solana there are many more opportunities because it’s a fraction of a cent to play around different LP, farming and so on. Initially I tried putting just a few dollars so I could understand much better how it was behaving and how impairment losses happened. The cost of actually using the blockchain is almost zero in Solana. So I actually found many good opportunities, although they aren’t usually lasting long time. The most important thing is to find 2 assets you want to actually hold long term, so you don’t care if you buy more of the one performing worse. Another option is to do LP of assets that are pegged, like mSOL-SOL.
