Minting $MAG
By minting MAG you're trading your crypto assets for discounted MAG.
The Mint page allows users to mint $MAG from the protocol at a discount by trading it with i) liquidity (LP tokens) or ii) other assets. The former is called liquidity minting and the latter is reserve minting. The minting action creates bonds that take 5 days (15 epoch) to vest, and $MAG tokens are vested linearly to the user over that period. Liquidity minting helps the protocol to accumulate and lock liquidity, while reserve minting allows the protocol to grow its treasury, and thus the backing per $MAG faster.โ€‹ The Magnet DAO currently offers minting via $MIM and $MAG-$MIM only, but we expect to add AVAX and other mint assets soon.

Minting $MAG

  1. 1.
    Go to the Mint page and select the assets you wish to use to mint $MAG.
  2. 2.
    Enter the amount of the asset you'd like to use for minting.
  3. 3.
    Approve the website using your asset to mint. You'll need to do so in your wallet when prompted.
  4. 4.
    After the "Approve" transaction has been processed successfully, click "Mint" and sign the transaction. Voila, you have minted your first $MAG tokens.
Note: The "Approve" transaction is only needed when minting for the first time; subsequent minting only requires you to perform the "mint" transaction.

How to Redeem

Once you've minted $MAG you'll need to redeem it to stake it or sell it on a DEX.
  1. 1.
    Go to the Mint page and select the mint type you have purchased.
  2. 2.
    Select the "Redeem" tab.
  3. 3.
    Use the Claim to claim all of your available rewards, and have the pending $MAG sent to your wallet, or use the Claim and Autostake button to have all the available $MAG sent automatically to the staking contract.
