PNLP

PNLP is the LP token for the new Plenty volatile and stable AMMs.

Trading fee

The fees is 0.05% for both volatile and stable swap. When a liquidity pool has a gauge and bribe contract attached to it the trading fees don't accumulate in the liquidity pool. The Trading fees can be claimed on a weekly basis by vePLY NFT holders when they vote for a liquidity pool.
Liquidity provision across liquidity pools would work in the standard way, with all providers receiving associated liquidity provider (LP) tokens. LP tokens can be staked in a corresponding gauge.
All trading fees generated on plenty.network go to users that voted for the gauge attached to a given liquidity pool. This approach creates a powerful incentive whereby liquidity pools that generate the most fees will also attract the more voters and thus the more PLY emissions.

Boosting

Attaching your vePLY NFT to your LP token stake to earn up to 2.5x more PLY on your provided liquidity.

PLY

Governance token of plenty.network.

vePLY

Stands for vote escrow PLY. VePLY is an NFT that represents PLY locked for a specific duration for the purpose of voting, claiming fees, and claiming bribes.

DeFi (Decentralized Finance)

LP (Liquidity provider)

Users providing liquidity (funds/assets).

LP tokens (Liquidity provider token)

When you deposit into a Plenty liquidity pool, you receive a counter party token which represents your share of the pool.

Gauge

A gauge is a fancy crypto term for defining how much of the PLY rewards an LP can earn when providing liquidity to a Plenty liquidity pool. The higher the votes for a gauge, the more PLY can be earned by staking LP tokens in a gauge.
The gauge is an instrument to measure which liquidity pool is weighted most heavily with rewards. Voting for gauges occurs weekly.
​

Epoch

A period of time between changes in the gauge weights. An epoch in the new ve system of Plenty is one week.
