Important Community Update about KyberSwap Elastic Farms

On the 17 Aug at 11.29PM SGT, we started receiving KyberSwap user feedback regarding our Elastic Farms.

We have identified a small issue with our Elastic LM contract that prevents a few users from harvesting their rewards. ALL funds are safe. Only a few users are affected regarding farm rewards.

You are an affected user if you cannot unstake your liquidity position, which is an NFT. Affected users will also see an announcement when visiting the Farms tab.

If you are not an affected user, no action is required. The farms are running and farming rewards are being distributed as per normal.

For affected users, please find the issue analysis, impact analysis, compensation plan and user plan detailed below.

Issue Analysis

The issue lies in the reward calculation function of the smart contract of the farms. While the good news is that all user funds are safe, the farming rewards of some affected users cannot be harvested and claimed the normal way.

To resolve this, we are fixing the smart contract; after which affected users can migrate their liquidity positions (NFTs) from existing farms to new farms. We will release an update on this soon.

In the meantime, as affected users cannot unstake, and thereafter, withdraw their NFTs the normal way; we are providing a Forced Withdraw function on KyberSwap. Through this, affected users will be able to withdraw their NFTs. To ensure that affected users’ receive the farming rewards they are due, we will manually transfer the rewards directly to their wallets.

Impact Analysis
  1. Impact on Capital
    There is no fund loss for liquidity providers. Your funds are SAFU.
  2. Liquidity Pool Fees
    LPs will continue earning fees from their liquidity positions in the pools as per normal.
  3. Farming Rewards
    Affected liquidity position NFTs will be entitled to their farming rewards, which we will transfer directly to the owners’ wallets after the farms end.
  4. Number of Positions Affected
    There are a total of 220 NFTs on Polygon and 58 on Avalanche. Currently, there are only 5 positions that are affected.
  5. User experience
    Not all users are affected. As stated above, you will know if you’re affected if you see an announcement when you visit the Farms tab.
