How do I deposit and stake in a Yield Automation vault?

This visual guide will walk you through every step in depositing and staking funds in a vault.

How to Deposit

1. Navigate to https://forcedao.com and connect your wallet to our app

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.

2. Choose which vault you want by clicking DEPOSIT

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

3. Approve then Deposit and receive xToken

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).
