Describe the different staking yields configurations
As with all reference rates, Vinter has different series of staking rates. As of 2023/05/25, the following starking rates series are being calculated.
Tier 1, on-chain data
Tier 2, staking providers
Tier 3, exchanges
Vinter provides the Annual Percentage Yield (APY) and Annual Percentage Rate (APR). Symbols containing " apr " correspond to the staking APR; if they contain "apy" the value is the asset's staking APY.
Each data source/provider is categorized into a three-tier system which accounts for the quality and reliability of the data feed it provides. Each tier is explained more thoroughly in its own subpage.
- On-Chain Tier: These sources offer non-aggregated blockchain, which allows calculating the Annual Percentage Rate (APR) for each validator.
- Staking Provider Tier: Corporate entities / Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAO) that provide validator services:
- Exchanges Tier: Some exchanges (like Kraken, Coinbase, and Binance) offer staking as a service. However, the terms differ from the previous category since reward rates are lower and lock-up periods shorter.
Each series is created by selecting one or multiple provider categories. Filtering conditions can also be applied, such as only considering providers who have updated their rates in the last 7 days.
