Amazon Pool FAQ & Troubleshooting


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

You should be able to find the Amazon Pool under the “Finished” tab on the Amazon Pools page.
By selecting “Staked Only”, it will make it easier to find your assets.

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

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

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

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

General Questions

How is APR for Amazon Pools calculated?

Amazon Pool APR = Annualized rewards (USD) / User funds staked in Amazon Pool (USD) * 100
As a basic example, let's take a 60-day pool with 300,000 USD worth of rewards, and 3,000,000 USD worth of DEX staked in it.
The APR fluctuates as more DEX is staked by users, and as the price of DEX, 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 DEX 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 Amazon Pool refer to?

This shows the amount of blocks left until the rewards for that pool stop being distributed. Once the pool has reached that block, you should unstake your tokens, because you won’t be receiving any rewards after that.

Where do the rewards from Amazon Pools come from?

There are three main types of Amazon Pools.
  1. 1.
    Stake DEX, earn DEX
  2. 2.
    Stake DEX, earn other tokens.
  3. 3.
    Stake other tokens, earn DEX
The rewards for the "Stake DEX, earn DEX" Amazon Pools come from the DEX emissions. Each block, a number of DEX tokens are allocated as rewards for these pools.
The rewards for the "Stake DEX, earn other tokens" type are provided by the project teams who sponsor a Amazon Pool.
For the "Stake other tokens, earn DEX" type, the Dex Asian treasury buys back DEX from the market to distribute as rewards. These pools are funded by Dex Asian, not by the projects themselves.

What’s SYRUP Token?

Dex Asian’s SYRUP Token is deposited in your wallet when you interact with the Manual “Stake DEX, Earn DEX” Amazon Pool. It's not staked for
It’s basically an IOU that shows how much DEX you’ve staked in the pool.
It’ll be returned automatically when you unstake your DEX from that pool.
Don’t sell your SYRUP tokens! You need to return your SYRUP to unstake your DEX from the Manual DEX pool. The amount of SYRUP you return must be the same as the amount of DEX you unstake.
