Gains Network’s Arbitrum gDAI pool is currently paying 24% APY, Polygon pool paying 14% (paid in DAI). Unbelievably, this all comes from Real Yield!

Per the title, Gains Network’s Arbitrum gDAI pool is currently paying 24% APY, its Polygon pool is paying 14% (paid in DAI). How is this possible?

Gains Network’s gTrade platform allows for decentralized synthetic leverage trading across crypto/forex/stock/indice/commodity asset classes. The gDAI pool provides liquidity for these trades, and is rewarded with a % of the fees generated. Learn more about gTrade [here](

You stake DAI and are given gDAI in return. gDAI is a tokenized share of the DAI vault. Your gDAI balance remains static, and all your accumulated fees increase the value (not quantity) of gDAI. The trading fee rewards automatically compound and increase the value of each gDAI you own over time.

You can stake DAI to earn a share of the trading fees here

**Why gDAI?**

Instead of just providing your DAI to be used as liquidity to earn fees, and it sitting idly in the vault until you want to withdraw it, you will now get a token that represents your share of the vault, called gDAI. And, in the future when it’s enabled, you’ll be able to stake BTC or ETH which will work in a similar fashion (earns fees from traders who use BTC and ETH to trade on gTrade), and you’ll get gBTC and gETH tokens to represent your share of the BTC vault. Now you have a token of value (representing your share of the vault) that can be transferred.

gDAI is a transferrable asset that can be used like any other crypto asset. It can be traded, used as collateral for a loan, used as collateral to gamble or trade with, or used for liquidity to bootstrap other protocols. A partnership allowing use of gDAI as collateral for borrowing will be announced soon.

gDAI can be claimed back via the pools page where you staked it here , or you can swap it for DAI (or other assets) on Uniswap.

  1. OP please mention the risks as well.

    These liquidity pools aren’t regular DEX liquidity pools where the only thing you have to worry about is price divergence / impermanent loss. The Gains Network pools are similar to insurance funds of centralized exchanges. Traders wins get paid ut of the pool, trader loses contribute to the pool APY.

    In other words by depositing LP you’re making a bet on whether the average trade will lose or win. If more trades lose you’ll have a high APY, if more trades win you’ll have a **negative APY**.

  2. Better check Unidex pool… 50+% of course risk are if traders win, you lose vice versa. Long term shows that 90% trader lose sooooo manage your own risk
