Difference between liquidity and staking

My understanding of the two is:

Liquidity: Helps fund pDex and allow transactions to occur.

Staking: Helps stabilize the value of PRV.

They both serve their own function and help the entirety of Incognito.

That sounds correct to me.

I believe that when you stake your PRV they go to help node operators that do not have the funds to stake their node with the 1750 PRV that is required

Both answers above are correct. Let me just add couple words about how it works form economic perspective:

Staking in the pool

When you stake PRV tokens It goes to the “staking pool”

  1. Funds used to set up new virtual node

Staking in the pDEX

The main difference that tokens used for providing liquidity and allow users trade back and forth.

  1. When you stake on pDEX you have to add both tokens for the trading pair (pBTC <> PRV)
  2. And you earn interest on both tokens PRV (62.7%) and pBTC (5%)

Quick comparison table

Staking pool pDEX
Supporting tokens PRV PRV, pBTC, pXMR, pUSDT, pUSDC
APR 37% 62.7%, 5%, 8%, 8%, 8%
How it works setting up new virtual nodes Maintain liquidity for pDEX
Type of earnings Reward split from pNodes APR interest
Requirements 10+ PRV Any amount (Must be equal amount of PRV <> pToken)
Lock up No lockup No lockup
Reward ditribution Real time Every Monday

Thank you, this was very informative!

Is one of the USDTs supposed to be USDC?

The Staking Pool requires a minimum of 10 PRV to create a staking deposit.
