Today, I want to get more in depth with Illuvium staking, and ask the big question everyone who is yield farming Illuvium thinks about – how much ILV will I have in the future? As you’ll see, this is a very complicated topic. While I’m generally opposed to crazy speculation, I’ll at least share my predictions along with my factors that will determine how much ILV you’ll receive over time. This article was written at the beginning of May 2022, and I’ll include my projected Illuvium yield farming APR’s for the next six months so feel free to judge my modeling* performance.
*mathematical modeling only. I assure you, you’re not hiring me for any other kind of modeling.
The concept of Illuvium staking is quite simple, but just like the Illuvium autobattler, there are subtle interactions that make modeling quite complex. At the foundation of Illuvium staking, all that matters is the amount of ILV being distributed, the number of tokens staked, and the weight of the staked tokens (i.e., how long each token is locked). Underneath these three factors is where things get complicated with varied levels of certainty. Here, I’ll break down these factors in order from most certainty to greatest uncertainty. I also assure you – there is an updated prediction for your staking. This article is for entertainment and educational purposes only and not financial advice.
Again, I'm officially migrating my blog to Infoluvial.io, so check out the full version of my articles there! The Infoluvial team is looking to build the premiere Illuvium resource site, and I'm excited to be a part of that team to create the best, most accurate, most insightful content on the project.
Let me know what you think about my predictions. What did I miss in my model? What do you think will happen with unlocking tokens. Share in the comments here or on Infoluvial, or hit me up on Twitter!
Thanks for reading and for your support!
