How to use Francium?
What is leveraged yield farming?
Users (farmers) borrow assets to increase yields in leveraged yield farming. The principle is simple: if you have more tokens, you will have more returns. It indicates that if you use leverage, your yield will be multiplied. Although you will have to pay interest on the borrowed assets, leveraged yield farming still has high capital efficiency.
What are the advantages of leverage yield farming?
In leveraged yield farming, users can borrow tokens to strengthen their farming positions and therefore, enjoy additional farming yields.
Not only leverage but Long/Short/Neutral Positions with adjustable risk exposure could also be set up with LYF to get profit based on the judgment of market trends. When you believe that the price of a certain commodity will increase or decrease with time, you can set up positions with corresponding long or short exposure. What if you just want to get mining revenue and try to avoid the impact of price fluctuations on the value of your position? Setup a Neutral Position. This kind of position doesn’t sell or buy any volatile tokens while splitting into a 50:50 proportion.
What's the difference between the Total APY and the estimated profit in the calculator/simulator.
The APY resulted from the direct conversion of APR to APY (https://www.aprtoapy.com), assuming that the Current Total APR remains unchanged during the period. While in fact, the Current Total APR will decrease if the APR of 1x leverage and the borrowing interest remain unchanged due to the fact that as the farming profit inclines, the current leverage declines. However, the calculation of estimated profit in the calculator/simulator takes that into account. That's why they are different.
Q: How do you pick up pools to be listed on Francium?
A: Now we list farming pools & lending based on different dimensions:

How do I make an insurance claim using the InsureAce protocol?
InsurAce does not support the Solana network for purchasing cover and will only pay for losses incurred to the wallet the insured used to purchase cover, then I cannot effectively insure my Francium funds with InsurAce, correct?
InsurAce is providing cross-chain insurance coverage, meaning you can purchase covers from any of the networks they have deployed (ETH, BSC, Polygon, and Avalanche) to cover user’s assets on other networks. Users can always use one wallet to buy a cover for your other wallets. If the affected wallet address where the loss was incurred is different from the one you use to pay the premiums, at the time of making a claim, you'll need to prove that you have ownership of the affected wallet address, the protocol will guide you on when you file a claim. Just simply make a micro transfer using the affected wallet address. For details visit: https://files.insurace.io/public/en/cover/SmartContractCover_v2.0.pdf
Why farmed value of my position less than expected?
'Farmed' value does not include the trading fee APR. However, what users actually get is Farming APR + Trading Fee APR, which is already added to the equity value. Framing APR and trading fee APR are also not fixed values, they vary continuously.
Will stop-loss be triggered before liquidation?
StopLoss and liquidation are two different functions based on two different mechanisms therefore, there’s no guarantee that stop-loss will be triggered before liquidation. It depends which one triggers it first.
Why is the strategy position on my positions invisible?
Strategy positions are available on the "Framing Strategies" page. Refresh the section manually by clicking on circle, if it is invisible.
I want to learn about leverage yield farming, is there any simple explanation?
What is the APY formula used in the Yield Farming Calculator/Simulator?
APY = Equity1 / Equity0
Equity1 = Position1 - Debt1
Position1 = p1 + (p0 + p1) / 2 * aprToApy(YieldAPR@1x + TradingFeeAPR@1x, days)
Debt1 = d1 + (d0 + d1) / 2 * aprToApy(borrow interest APR, days)
p0 = Equity0 * leverage
p1 = Equity0 * leverage * LPchange
d0 = Equity0 * (leverage - 1)
d1 = Equity0 * (leverage - 1) * LPchange
LPChange = Math.sqrt(token0change * token1change)
Equity1 = Position1 - Debt1 = [p1 + (p0 + p1)/2 * aprToApy(YieldAPR@1x + TradingFeeAPR@1x, days)] - [d1 + (d0 + d1) / 2 * aprToApy(borrowInterestAPR, days)]
What is the APY formula used on the Farm page?
APY = apr2apy(Yield Farming APR * leverage + Trading Fee APR * leverage) - apr2apy(Borrowing Interest * (leverage - 1))
*Note: This formula has an assumption that the leveraged APR remains unchanged at each reinvestment, e.g. maintaining leverage through closing positions.
