Quick Start

This guide will help you get started with Arable and Acrechain and all their possibilities.

Arable is a multi-chain DeFi service. This means that Arable is available on multiple blockchains. Currently, Arable is active on Avalanche, Evmos, and Acrechain and we are quickly expanding, targeting Arbitrum and Optimism next! However not all features are available on all blockchains, this is something that we are actively working on. The goal is to have the majority of features available on all supported blockchains. So keep your eyes peeled for updates!

Below we will go over what you can do on Arable and on which blockchains you can do it.

Liquidity Mining

Liquidity mining is a way to earn rewards by providing liquidity to a token pool, such as the arUSD tri pool at Curve or the ACRE/USDC pool at Osmosis. Liquidity mining is currently available on Avalanche and Cosmos.

ACRE

We have operational ACRE pools on many chains. You can earn ACRE rewards by providing liquidity to these pools. You can find the list of all ACRE pools on the Liquidity page. We have pools with ACRE pairing up with native network tokens and stablecoins such as USDC.

When providing liquidity on Avalanche you will receive LP tokens (liquidity provider tokens) that you can stake on the Pools](https://app.arable.finance/#/pools) page to earn ACRE rewards. Check out our Avalanche liquidity mining guide for more information.

When providing liquidity on Osmosis you will earn OSMSO rewards and receive pool shares which you can then bond directly at Osmosis to earn even more OSMO rewards. Check out our Osmosis liquidity mining guide for more information.

arUSD

arUSD is Arable over-collateralized stablecoin. It is pegged to the US dollar and is used by traders to purchase derivatives on Arable. arUSD is available on Avalanche, Evmos and soon Acrechain and Osmosis.

When providing stablecoin liquidity to the stability fund you can earn ACRE rewards by depositing the LP tokens. Check out our liquidity mining guide for more information.

When providing liquidity to the arUSD tri pool you will receive Curve LP tokens that you can stake on the Pools page to earn ACRE rewards. You can find the Curve pool here.

You can easily get arUSD by either minting it with collateral or swapping it for other stablecoins at the stability fund. Get started now and get your hands on arUSD!

The stability fund is also available on Evmos and soon Acrechain and Osmosis.

Delegated Staking - Earn ACRE rewards

Help secure the Acrechain network by delegating your ACRE tokens to a validator and start earning while doing it.

With delegated staking, you can generate rewards by depositing your ACRE tokens to a validator. Validators are independent nodes that help secure the AcreChain network and facilitate transactions, allowing AcreChain to function. By staking (delegating) your ACRE tokens to a validator, you will receive ACRE rewards in return, minus a small commission set by each validator. This is known as proof of stake (PoS) and is a more energy-efficient way to secure a blockchain than proof of work (PoW) which is most commonly associated with Bitcoin and until recently, Ethereum.

Delegated staking is available on Acrechain. Stake ACRE today and start earning ACRE right away using our Delegated Staking page. You may also want to consider staking via REStake which allows the auto-compounding of your ACRE rewards, leading to higher returns and less work for you.

Stability Pool

Deposit stablecoin liquidity and earn ACRE rewards. The stability pool is a one-sided pool, which means you only have to deposit one stablecoin instead of pairing it up with another token.

You can also swap between a variety of stablecoins with very low fees and no slippage.

The stability pool is available on Acrechain and Evmos. Start swapping and providing liquidity right away using our Stability Pool page.
