Annual Percentage Yield

What is APY?

APY stands for Annual Percentage Yield. It measures the real rate of return on your principal by taking into account the effect of compounding interest.

Your $MaxAPY tokens represents your principal, and the compound interest is added periodically on every Rebase event (Every 3 seconds).

One interesting fact about APY is that your balance will grow not linearly but exponentially over time! Assuming a daily compound interest of approximately 2.54%, if you start with an initial balance of $1,000 $MaxAPY token on day 1, after a year, your balance will grow to approximately $9,600,000 worth of $MaxAPY token.
