CORE’s second Liquidity Generation Event is completed. Contributors received their LP tokens. These LP tokens can be staked on cvault.finance to earn rewards on fees, generated from trading volume of the pool.

This is a visual guide on how to claim and stake your LP tokens.

If you have participated in the LGE #2 and have claimed your tokens without staking please follow the steps below:

1. Approve the LP tokens

To approve the LP tokens you have to go to https://etherscan.io/address/0x6fad7d44640c5cd0120deec0301e8cf850becb68#writeContract

Connect your MetaMask wallet to the smart contract by clicking on Connect to Web3.

Use Item 1: approve:

For spender (address) enter:

for value (uint256) enter:

Press the blue “write” button and confirm your transaction.

2. Connect to the Vault Smart Contract

Please visit: https://etherscan.io/address/0xc5cacb708425961594b63ec171f4df27a9c0d8c9#writeProxyContract
This is the smart contract which you will have to interact with to stake your LP tokens.

3. Connect to Web3

Connect your MetaMask wallet to the smart contract. You do that by clicking on Connect to Web3

4. Choose your Wallet

Choose MetaMask or WalletConnect. For this example, we will be using MetaMask.

If you successfully connected your wallet, a green dot should appear.

5. Stake your LP Tokens

Scroll down to item 4: “4. deposit” you will see two fields.
For _pid (uint256)
enter 1
For _amount (uint256) you need to enter the amount of LP tokens you have.

To find out how much LP tokens you have you need to check your transactions on etherscan.io

View your wallet on Etherscan and find the transaction where you received your LP tokens

In this example the wallet received 0.000003287410573527 UNI-V2 LP Tokens which means you would have to enter the following into the fields below: 0.000003287410573527 * 1e18
For _pid (uint256): 1

For _amount (uint256) field: 3287410573527

After you completed both fields press the blue “write” button and complete the transaction in MetaMask. A few minutes later you should receive the transaction confirmation.

That’s it, you have successfully staked your LP tokens.
