How to earn liquidity mining incentives on Osmosis

On Osmosis, users can participate in LIKE liquidity pools for liquidity mining to earn incentives and swap fees.

Providing liquidity to the liquidity pool

Step 1: Select the liquidity pool

Currently, LikeCoin has two liquidity pools in Osmosis:

Pool #553 LIKE/OSMO

Pool #555 LIKE/ATOM

On the menu of Osmosis select Pools and search for "LIKE" and you can find the two pools.

The following example is for pool 553.

Step 2: Prepare your funds

Each liquidity pool has its own ratio; Pool #553 LIKE/OSMO ratio is 50%/50%, which means you have to prepare 50% LIKE to match with 50% OSMO. You can also find the following information:

  • 24h Trading volume of the pool

  • Pool Liquidity is the total amount in the pool

  • Swap Fee is the fee that people have to pay if they make a swap in the liquidity pool

Click on the left menu and select Swap to get LIKE or OSMO, and learn how to buy LikeCoin:

Step 3: Add Liquidity to Liquidity Pool

After preparing LIKE and OSMO, on Level 1, you can earn swap fees for providing liquidity to this pool. Click "Add Liquidity".

On Add Liquidity, fill in the amount of LIKE that you are going to put in the pool, and the amount of OSMO will be automatically filled in. Then click "Add Liquidity". Keplr will pop up a confirmation window, click "Approve", and it's done. There are several steps that require confirmation from Keplr, click "Approve" when you come across them.

When using Leap, Cosmostation, and Keplr Mobile, the respective confirmation screen will also pop up.

If you would like to trade more funds for adding liquidity, click "Trade Pair" at any time to trade.

Bonding shares for Liquidity Mining Incentives

After adding liquidity, you will receive shares ( sometimes called LP Token ) according to the shares that you have provided in proportion to the whole liquidity pool. Bonding these shares will receive liquidity mining rewards.

Step 1: Start Earning

Check out the available shares that you have, and you can enter into Level 2 Bond Liquidity. Click "Bone Shares".

Step 2: Bonded shares

The pop-up window shows the APR ( Annual Percentage Rate ) and must be bonded for 14 days to obtain liquidity mining rewards. In "Amount to bond," enter the number of shares to be bonded and click "Bond".

After completion, it will show that it takes 14 days unbonding, the number of bond shares, and APR, etc.

Step 3: Rewards

Go back to the top, and you will find more information, which are:

  • Your Pool Balance, the number of LIKE and OSMO bound to the liquidity pool, and their shares in the pool

  • Bonded is the liquidity that you bonded with this pool

  • My Liquidity is the liquidity amount that you own in this pool

  • You're currently earning is how much you are earning every day

On Daily Epoch 17:00 UTC, the liquidity mining rewards in OSMO will be automatically delivered to your Keplr wallet.

Unbond shares and withdraw the funds

Step 1: Unbond shares

Go back to Bond liquidity and click "Unbond".

Note that it takes 14 days to unbond. During the unbonding period, you can still earn liquidity mining rewards until you are fully unbonded.

Step 2: Remove Liquidity and withdraw funds

After the unbinding is complete, go back to Level 1 and click "Remove Liquidity" to get back the cryptocurrency. You can select Assets in the left-hand menu to view the retrieved LIKE and OSMO.
