Converting xSTEAK to STEAK

xSTEAK is escrowed STEAK that can be redeemed by vesting. The user can select the vesting duration when converting xSTEAK to STEAK. The conversion ratio increases proportionally with the vesting duration:

  • The minimum vesting duration of 10 days will provide a 1:0.5 ratio

  • The maximum vesting duration of 45 days will provide a 1:1 ratio

To redeem your xSTEAK for STEAK simply select "Redeem STEAK" and enter the amount you would like to redeem and the vesting duration you wish to wait, note the UI will calculate how much STEAK you will receive depending on your vesting duration.

While redeeming the user will receive partial rewards from the rewards application at a 50% rate.
