How do I deposit in a Yield Automation vault?
This visual guide will walk you through every step in depositing and staking funds in a vault.

Open our app by connecting your wallet and click through to the Strategies page. The vaults you are able to deposit into will show when the appropriate assets are in your connected wallet.

Click the DEPOSIT button to load the deposit module and enter the amount of assets you wish to deposit into the vault.

Depositing for the first time requires making two transactions, one approval, and one deposit. Approval is one-time, subsequent deposits can be made in a single transaction. Please ensure there is ETH in your wallet to cover the gas cost on Ethereum.
  • Approval (first time only)
    • Enter from 1 to 100% of your wallet balance then click DEPOSIT
    • Confirm the approval transaction in your wallet
  • Deposit
    • Enter from 1 to 100% of your wallet balance then click DEPOSIT
    • Confirm the deposit in your wallet
The xToken you receive is your share of that asset in the vault. The amount of xToken in your wallet will remain constant over time but the value of it will increase as the vault earns returns.
The amount of xToken you receive will be less than 1 per the amount token you deposited because the xToken is worth less than 1 of that asset.
For example, if at the time of depositing, if the xToken was equal to 1.044 of the asset you deposited and you deposited 100 that asset, you would have received 95.78 xToken (100 / 1.044).

The process to deposit into a vault strategy on Polygon is similar to the steps for our vaults on Ethereum. The main difference is you must have your Web3 wallet connected to the Polygon Network and have MATIC tokens to execute transactions on Polygon.
