How to access Auto-Pools
Select the Pool Page
Click the Auto-Pool tab
Select a specific Auto-Pool: EG AVAX-USDC
On the Auto-Pool tab you will see a range of data points, highlighting total liquidity, the amount of liquidity inside the Farm and further details such as your position, fees earned by the Auto-Pool, the gross APR generated by the fees and also the Auto-Pool Farm APR.
There are four key segments on the Auto-Pool Page:
Description of the Auto-Pool and risks
Add or Remove Liquidity
Auto-Pool Yield Farm
Your access to and use of Auto-Pools through this interface is entirely at your own risk and could lead to substantial losses, including but not limited to impermanent loss and smart contract risk. Before participating, you should ensure that you fully understand these risks.
Divergence Risk: Assets may experience significant divergent price movements during volatile conditions. This means your deposit is exposed to the price movements of both tokens in the pair, and your exposure to each token can also change. Volatile conditions may lead to increased impermanent/divergence loss.
Adding and Removing Liquidity
You can add any amount of tokens when depositing assets into an Auto-Pool, eg you can deposit 30% and 70%, 50% and 50% or even 0% and 100%. When you add liquidity, the Auto-Pool will automatically rebalance your liquidity to match the underlying composition of the Auto-Pool. This is to ensure the underlying asset composition is protected. This means that your tokens may be swapped to match that composition, this will be done automatically when you enter.
When removing your tokens from the Auto-Pool, you will receive back tokens that represent your % share of the Auto-Pool in the current composition of the assets. Eg if the Auto-Pool has a perfect 50/50 split of tokens, you will receive back Token A and Token B in a 50/50 split.
When withdrawing, there may be a withdrawal timer that could be anywhere up to 60 minutes (or more). Your assets are withdrawn from the Auto-Pool on the next pending rebalance. You must perform this in two transactions:
First transaction: Confirm you would like to withdraw
Second transaction: 'Redeem' once you are able to withdraw
Some Auto-Pools may come with a Yield Farm that distribute additional token rewards on top of any yield earned from fees. These yield farms can be accessed directly in the Auto-Pool page as seen in the image above. Once you have deposited your tokens into the Auto-Pool, you can then proceed to depositing your receipt token into the yield farm. Any rewards earned in the yield farm are streamed in real time and are held waiting for you to collect them.
⚠️ Risk Warning
Auto-Pools offer an automated way to access a Liquidity Book Pool. However, like all forms of providing liquidity, it's not without risks and should only be undertaken with a thorough understanding of the underlying Auto-Pool and market conditions.
Assets may experience significant divergent price movements during volatile conditions. This means your deposit is exposed to the price movements of both tokens in the pair, and your exposure to each token can also change. Volatile conditions may lead to increased impermanent/divergence loss.
Your capital is at risk. Your assets may be worth less when you withdraw them compared to when you deposited them.
