What are liquidity pools?
Explained in clearer terms, when a user supplies an asset – provides liquidity to the pool, it automatically becomes a fungible resource. The token deposited in the liquidity pool is denoted with a value or derivative. This gives the supplier ownership rights of the reward paid on the total amount supplied.
The assigned derivative is thus defined as an increasing percentage ownership claim of a portion of the liquidity pool supplied to the smart contract on the Fantom blockchain. With this, supplying liquidity to the pool is equal to having a derivative which represents the supplier's contribution in the liquidity pool.
How it works?
Whenever liquidity is deposited into a pool, special tokens known as liquidity tokens are minted to the provider’s address in proportion to how much liquidity they contributed to the pool. These tokens are a representation of a liquidity provider’s contribution to a pool.
Whenever a trade occurs, the fee which is levied is distributed pro-rata to all LPs in the pool at the moment of the trade. To receive the underlying liquidity back, plus any fees that were accrued while their liquidity was locked, LPs must burn their liquidity tokens.
When a liquidity provider make a deposit of their token into Liquidity Pools, they will receive LP token and a share of the transaction fee.
When you send WIS and Fantom to the liquidity pool, you will receive WIS - FTM LP tokens, the number of LP tokens you receive will represent your share in WIS - FTM Liquidity Pool. You can get your capital back at any time by removing your liquidity
Reward of Liquidity Providers
Providing liquidity gives you rewards in the form of trading fees when people use your liquidity pool.
1, There are 10 LP tokens representing 10 WIS and 10 FTM tokens and we have: 1 LP token = 1 WIS + 1 FTM
2, Someone trades 10 WIS for 10 FTM and someone also trades 10 FTM for 10 WIS.
3, WIS/FTM liquidity pool now has 10,017 WIS and 10,017 FTM.
4, Each LP token is now worth 1,00017 WIS + 1,00017 FTM.
