🥩How does $HAWK staking work?

Stake $HAWK to earn yield on your $HAWK tokens. When you stake $HAWK, you receive xHAWK in exchange as a yield-bearing asset.

When you eventually unstake xHAWK, you are entitled to receive more $HAWK than you initially deposited. No rewards-claiming or additional steps required, simply stake your $HAWK and hold your xHAWK to earn more $HAWK!

🌾How does $HAWK accrue in value?

$HAWK token accrual value is driven by token buybacks, funded by protocol fees as Hawksight’s Total Value Locked (TVL) grows. So don’t forget to check out http://hawksight.co, the ultimate one-stop-shop for $SOL & $USDC yields
