Staking Gravitational Fields

Staking Gravitational Fields are enigmatic structures. They seem to exhibit an interesting expansive nature where they accumulate energy as time goes by, typically in a non-linear fashion...

Core Technology

TangleSwap's Staking Fields serve as multi-purpose DeFi infrastructure.

First and foremost, these fields facilitate the generation of both consistent yield in the form of tokens, as well as non-transferable Void Energy (VE). Users can stake $VOID to gain rewards while laying the groundwork for TangleSwap's Decentralized Reputation System.

The design of Staking Fields prioritizes user-friendly interaction. Users need only decide:

  1. The Amount of VOID to stake.
  2. The Duration of the staking period.

With just two clicks, users can begin earning both token rewards (VOID) and reputation (VE). Our simulator allows for quick calculations of both based on selected staking parameters.

The Void Energy mechanism has been carefully designed with the relevant economic considerations to enable TangleSwap to balance and further increase the benefits for those who contribute to long-lasting, sustainable, organic growth of the platform and the underlying token.


The amount of Void Energy (VE) generated from staking VOID is calculated based on this simple formula:

VE=(Amount of $VOID Staked)×(Staking Duration in Days)\text{VE} = (\text{Amount of \$VOID Staked}) \times (\text{Staking Duration in Days})
  • Instant Activation of Void Energy Benefits: Upon staking your VOID tokens, you immediately activate the benefits of Void Energy. These advantages are available throughout your staking period, enhancing your TangleSwap experience.

  • Understanding the Impacts of Add VOID or Extend Duration: Opting to Add VOID or Extend Duration in your staking strategy leads to three significant outcomes, intuitively reflected in our user interface for clarity and ease of understanding. Firstly, performing these actions instantly distributes any rewards accumulated from your prior staking period. Secondly, your initial lock duration is reset, effectively starting a new staking period. Lastly, they reset "Your Time Staked" to zero in the staking rewards formula:

    • Staking Rewards=(Your Staked VOIDGlobal Staked VOID)×(Your Time StakedTotal Time Since Launch)\text{Staking Rewards} = \left(\frac{\text{Your Staked VOID}}{\text{Global Staked VOID}}\right) \times \left(\frac{\text{Your Time Staked}}{\text{Total Time Since Launch}}\right)

    • This reset — Add VOID or Extend Duration — notably affects the accumulation of your Staking Rewards. After the reset, there might be an initial decrease in rewards per second compared to the pre-reset period. However, as you maintain your stake without further resets, these rewards will gradually build up, and surpass the level of rewards from your previous stake.

    • In simpler terms, the longer the duration of your stake, the more time it requires for your rewards to progressively increase, or "ramp up." Therefore, it's advisable to refrain from making frequent small additions of VOID or regularly renewing a long-term staking duration. For instance, if you renew a 1-year staking period every week, it would hinder the gradual increase of your rewards per second over time and also restarts the 1-year staking period everytime you either Add VOID or Extend Duration. This understanding is key to optimizing your staking strategy for maximum benefit.

  • Consequences of Withdrawing Stake: Be aware that withdrawing your stake, releases your accumulated rewards but also results in the loss of all your gathered Void Energy — creating a balanced synergy between Void Energy, your staking rewards, and the VOID token itself.

In addition, the innovative infrastructure provided by the Staking Fields will be made accessible to relevant interested Web3 protocols and stakeholders to be used with their own respective tokens.

This 'Staking as a Service' model offers substantial cost savings on infrastructure and development for participating projects, while simultaneously benefiting TangleSwap users and VOID holders through performance-based fees.

Deep dive into TangleSwap's Reputation System and it's benefits

In essence, the yield that users obtain in the form of VOID serves as the cost the protocol incurs to gauge user reputation. The accumulated Void Energy represents this 'reputation score', enabling the protocol to incentivize healthy interactions among all participants.
