Syrup Pool FAQ & Troubleshooting


I can't find the Syrup Pool I was staking in!

You should be able to locate the Syrup Pool under the "Finished" tab on the Syrup Pools page. By selecting "Staked Only", you can more easily find your assets.

Why can’t I unstake my tokens from a Syrup Pool?

If you are unable to unstake from the Stake DonutSwap, Earn DonutSwap pools, please make sure that you haven't sold the SYRUP tokens in your wallet. This token acts as a proof of ownership over your DonutSwap in the Manual DonutSwap pool.

Why did my earned tokens go to zero after staking/unstaking?

Don’t worry! They’re already in your wallet. Whenever you stake or unstake from a Syrup Pool or farm, your earned tokens get harvested and sent to your wallet simultaneously.

General Questions

How is APR for Syrup Pools calculated? Syrup Pool APR = Annualized rewards (USD) / User funds staked in Syrup Pool (USD) * 100 For instance, if we consider a 60-day pool with 300,000 USD worth of rewards, and 3,000,000 USD worth of DonutSwap staked in it, we can calculate the APR. Please note that the APR fluctuates as more DonutSwap is staked by users, and as the prices of DonutSwap, and the reward token, vary.



Total rewards to distribute (USD value)

300,000 USD

Distribution period

60 days

Daily distribution

300,000 / 60 =

5,000 USD daily

Annualised rewards (USD value)

5,000 * 365 =

1,825,000 USD

Value of DonutSwap staked by users in pool (USD value)

3,000,000 USD


(1,825,000 / 3,000,000) * 100 =

60.833% APR

What does the “End” number on my Syrup Pool refer to?

This shows the number of blocks left until the rewards for that pool stop being distributed. Once the pool has reached that block, you should unstake your tokens, as you won't receive any rewards after that.

Where do the rewards from Syrup Pools come from?

There are three main types of Syrup Pools.

The rewards for the "Stake DonutSwap, earn DonutSwap" Syrup Pools come from the DonutSwap emissions. Each block, a certain number of DonutSwap tokens are allocated as rewards for these pools.

The rewards for the "Stake DonutSwap, earn other tokens" type are provided by the project teams who sponsor a Syrup Pool.

For the "Stake other tokens, earn DonutSwap" type, the DonutSwap treasury buys back DonutSwap from the market to distribute as rewards. These pools are funded by DonutSwap, not by the projects themselves.

What’s SYRUP Token?

DonutSwap SYRUP Token is deposited in your wallet when you interact with the Manual “Stake DonutSwap, Earn DonutSwap” Syrup Pool. It's not staked for.

This token is essentially an IOU that indicates how much DonutSwap you’ve staked in the pool.

It will be returned automatically when you unstake your DonutSwap from that pool. Please don't sell your SYRUP tokens! You need to return your SYRUP to unstake your DonutSwap from the Manual DonutSwap pool. The amount of SYRUP you return must be the same as the amount of DonutSwap you unstake.
