Working out how much you will earn

Use Excel to help you calculate expected returns.

Impermanent loss:

Avoiding Impermanent Loss

  1. GET goes down relative to ETH. In that case I will keep all of my GET. I am happy to keep it because of the great prospects.
  2. GET goes up relative to ETH. In that case the GET put into the pool will be gradually converted to ETH. If the GET price rises from 1118 to 764 (GET per ETH), then all of my GET in the pool will be converted to ETH at an average rate of 941 GET per ETH. That means I will receive 18.66 ETH (plus all the fees), which is more than the 16 ETH I started with, so I will be in profit. It might not be in as much profit as it would have been if I had kept the GET without putting it in the pool, but it’s still a nice profit.
  3. After rising and falling the price returns to the original level of 1118 GET per ETH. In this case I will be happy because I will receive back the same number of tokens that I started with. In addition I will have earned the Liquidity Provider fees.
