Staking farms, LP farms, Perpetual Staking, Vesting Contracts and more to come!
One of the more popular types of farms at TokensFarm is staking farms. Teams behind crypto projects can easily deploy one to reward their community for holding their token. The team can choose the number of tokens or amount they’d like to reward their community with and the duration of the farm. In addition, TokensFarm supports all major EVM chains so that TokensFarm can support nearly all tokens.
Participants from the community can choose to stake their tokens from the project on a farm for a duration. The participants are rewarded with tokens for staking their tokens for a fixed period. Typically, the token reward is the same token as the token staked. However, A project can choose to reward farmers with other tokens.
The APY awarded to the farm’s participants is dynamic. It depends on the amount the team allocated to the farm and, more importantly, the number of participants. The more participants the farm has, the fewer rewards the participants will receive and vice-versa.
Similar to a regular staking farm but without a set duration or expiry date. It is an ongoing staking farm for tokens that can incentivize a community to hodl for more extended periods.
Launching a staking farm has multiple benefits to a project and its community. Benefits can include a reduced circulating supply, increased enthusiasm within a token’s community, and interest from non-holders.
Crypto projects that have deployed staking farms on TokensFarm have seen a vast reduction in their token’s circulating supply.
The project will also feature in TokensFarm’s farming marketplace. The marketplace receives over 90,000 views per month from DeFi enthusiasts and farmers. In addition, each farm has a convenient “Get Token” button. The “Get Token” button allows users who have yet to own a particular token to purchase it quickly and stake it on the platform.
TokensFarm’s farms and contracts are fully customizable to fit every project
Customize your farm with the following settings:
- Minimum staking time requirements

In addition to staking farms, TokensFarm offers liquidity pool farms, also known as LP Farms. LP farms are also deployable within hours. This type of farm rewards participants that provide liquidity for a particular pair of tokens on a specific DEX (e.g., HORD/BUSD on PancakeSwap).
Participants that provide liquidity on a DEX receive LP tokens representing their stake in the liquidity pool. These LP tokens are staked on an LP farm on TokensFarm in exchange for rewards. The rewards are selected and provided by the crypto project which launched the farm. Usually, rewards take the form of one of the tokens within the LP pair, although a project can reward farmers with a different token. LP farms incentivize liquidity providers to provide liquidity continuously on a DEX.
TokensFarm supports all major DEXs, and crypto projects can select their DEX of preference. The project chooses the crypto pair and can choose nearly any pair. The most common choice is their native token and a common stablecoin.
Similar to the staking farms, LP farms also feature a dynamic APY. Dynamic APY means that the fewer participants a farm has, the higher the number of rewards they will receive. With dynamic APY, the opposite is also correct, and the more participants a farm has, the fewer the rewards.
Launching an LP farm has many different benefits for the project and the token’s community. As the name suggests, it greatly increases a token's liquidity.
In our case study, a crypto project called Opulous launched an LP farm via TokensFarm. According to the study, liquidity grew by over 900% in a 55-day timeframe. In a US Dollar based equivalent, liquidity increased from $830,000 to $8,400,000 with 55 days. In addition to this, OPUL’s trading volume also increased drastically.
There is a bit of a difference between the two farm types of farms listed above and vesting contracts. LP and staking farms reward their community for staking or providing liquidity. Vesting contracts, however, release the portion of tokens belonging to either the projects team and/or early investors.
Within TokensFarm vesting contracts, there are several different release methods:
- In a custom vesting contract, the tokens are distributed in batches (portions), and the time between each batch is also pre-defined by the project. Tokens are being released only at the time and amount that the project decides. So a user can claim tokens according to the time set. (Note: another name for this is called iterative vesting contract).
All vesting contracts are fully customizable and adaptable to crypto projects' needs.
There are many different perks for projects to use TokensFarm’s vesting contracts. Benefits include increased transparency with a token’s management and growing trust. It also helps projects to avoid errors by using whitelisted addresses only. It can also help a project avoid a mass sale of tokens from the project’s end or by a team member.
Partial funding is a functionality that allows a project to place a portion of its vesting rewards in a contract. The minimum required funding is 5% of the total vesting amount. The team can later add more tokens to the smart contract during the vesting period.
Partial funding enables projects to use their tokens for other usages. Additionally, crypto projects can use it to present a lower circulating supply or avoid unlikely contract issues.
Distribution will cease if the tokens within the contract have been depleted before the scheduled end of the contract. The reactivation time and costs of the contract are identical to the launch of a new contract.
