When using Curve, users can stake their LP tokens into the Curve gauge liquidity system to earn additional trading fees and incentivized rewards.
To stake your stETH tokens in gauge:
- Visit www.curve.fi/steth/deposit.
- If you have not made your first deposit, press “Deposit and stake in gauge”. This will automatically stake your deposited stETH and you will start earning steCRV.
- If your stETH is already deposited but not staked, press “Stake unstaked in gauge”.
- Using the ‘stake %’ field, choose the amount you want to stake. This can be unstaked anytime.
Please note that when you stake your LP tokens - steCRV - using gauge, they will no longer be visible in your Metamask wallet. They will be visible again upon unstaking.
