[Kyber Netwok] Important Community Update about KyberSwap Elastic Farms

KyberSwap Farms Issue Update

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

We have since identified an issue with our ElasticLM contract that prevents some users from harvesting their rewards.

You are an affected user if you find that you cannot un-stake your liquidity NFT.

If you are not an unaffected user, no actions are required. The farms are running and liquidity mining rewards are being distributed as normal.

If you are an affected user, 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 liquidity mining rewards of some affected users cannot be harvested and claimed the normal way.

To fix this, we are fixing the smart contract; after which affected users can migrate their liquidity positions (NFTs) from existing farms to new farms. This fix is expected to be rolled out by xxxxx. [What is the ETA for this fix?]

In the meantime, as affected users’ NFTs cannot be withdrawn the normal way, we are providing a Forced Withdraw function on KyberSwap. Through this, affected users will be able to withdraw their liquidity positions. 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 normal.
  3. Farming Rewards
    Affected 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. If you can withdraw your NFTs from the farming contract, you are not affected.
    You will know if you’re affected if you see an announcement when you visit the Farms.
Only affected users will see this announcement
