Questions about Ygov staking, voting & rewards

YIP-32 removed YFI burning for claiming rewards in favour of staking YFI inside a contract.

What exactly happens in this contract to my staked YFI after I’ve voted and claimed rewards for doing so? Does my staked YFI still belong to me and can I safely unstake and withdraw at any given time?
Is it better to stake for a long-term or is that irrelevant and only voting counts for reward calculations ?

My assumption is when I stake 1 YFI and vote for a YIP and then within 3 days claim the rewards I end up with having 1 YFI + rewards and I can do that multiple times whenever there’s something to vote on.

Sorry for the noob questions, YFI train is running quite fast :monorail: and I just don’t want to screw this up :wink:

Let’s build it! :star_struck: :cowboy_hat_face: :building_construction: :tractor:

After reading a bit more on the forum, I’ve realized the irony of my question and that voting is not a 1-time thing and does only vote_lock my staked YFI for 3 days and I don’t loose any of them when participating in votes. So it’s all goood, will vote!

Sorry for the noise and btw it’s awesome what you guys are building!

Hey I’ve put it in the vault. Where do I vote? And I’m sorry I’m new to this, but can I withdraw the Ydai and the yYfi to put back into curve? Or can I put it back into earn on our platform?

Hi, you have to stake your YFI into the governance pool in order to vote, the vaults aren’t used for voting:

Here’s a good starting point:

hope that helps.

I didn’t. Ok thank you so much. Doing it now.

Thanks again. I’m so glad to be apart of this. Put everything I have into this amazing opportunity.
