In traditional finance, an IOU is a document that acknowledges a debt owed. In modern finance, blockchain and cryptocurrency, an IOU is essentially a token, issued on the blockchain, representing the same value as the underlying asset.

HOTCROSS-BNB LP token balance > 0
OR BNB balance > 0
Your position in this vault. Amount of funds that are already in the vault.
Additional buttons to let you create liquidity or buy a cryptocurrency that is needed for this vault.
The deposit block contains which token you want to deposit or ZAP, the percentage of the current balance that would be deposited, and approve/deposit button.
Withdraw block contains the name of the token to withdraw, amount of funds that are in the vault, an opportunity to pick a percentage and withdraw button.
Yield Bounty is explained below
Actual statistics of this vault and link to the smart contract of this vault.
ZAP function - is a smart contract function that can convert tokens into one vault is needed. For example, for the ETH-BNB vault, you can deposit with ETH-BNB LP or single ETH/WBNB/BNB tokens. The smart contract will do a job for you.👇
Few words about Yield Bounty
Yield Bounty is not main reward of your vault. The reward for your stake goes right to your deposit amount as it is auto-compounding. This bounty is given as a reward for providing a service to other users. Whenever you successfully claim the bounty, you’re also helping by triggering Cross Yield's auto-compound functionality.

Real 30-Day APY Calculation
Each of the underlying protocols does provide an ROI which is translated as the APR the protocol offers. Cross Yield with the functionality of auto-compounding allows the conversion of the APR into APY. In plain English, the magic of compounding allows for much higher yields.
Real 30-Day APY = Vault APY + Trading APR
Vault APY calculation
Vault APY is the rewards that come from AMMs (CAKE on PSC, BANANA on ApeSwap for example). Which will be auto compounded by the Cross Yield vault smart contract.
The formula below allows us to calculate the APY:
The Compound Interest Formula
For example, imagine the underlying Defi protocol being a master chef pool on PancakeSwap (PSC), more specifically, the HOTCROSS-BNB LP pool.
Now consider the following metrics
annual interest (r) = Vault APR = 132.191% or adjusted to a day r = 0,362167123%
The Trading APR will be calculated based on the 30-Day volume of the liquidity pool.
In other AMMs or Yield Optimization, they use different timeframes to calculate the Trading APR, such as 7-Day or 24-Hour. So, sometimes their APYs will be higher and the reason is the spike in volume (which means more trading fees) in a short timeframe.
We are using the 30-Day timeframe to calculate the Trading APR because the wider the time period the more accurate figure will be. Therefore, the Real 30-Day APY figure should be more reliable.
All figures are estimates provided for your convenience only, and by no means represent guaranteed returns.
Where can I see the staking reward from Cross Yield?
Your dex tokens rewards (CAKE, BANANA) will be automatically compounded into your deposit value.
Do I need to click on the Claim button?
No, It's not required. This bounty is given as a reward for providing a service to other users. Whenever someone successfully claims the bounty, they're also helping by triggering Cross Yield's auto-compound functionality.
I deposited some funds into a Cross Yield vault, but after 1-2 days, I don't see my fund increase.
In some cases, the total value locked is quite small which means the rewards be generating from it are small too. If the transaction fee (of the compound transaction) > reward for the harvester to compound, the compounder will not trigger.
So that, the compounding action is not necessary to happen daily. But your deposit value still increases over time.
