2) There is no need to learn the complicated NPoS consensus mechanism of Polkadot and staking reward calculation rules any more. With rDOT App, users only need a few simple steps to deposit DOT into the rDOT contract, which will automatically select the best validator by executing the Staking Reward Maximization strategy algorithm.

3.How to stake DOT on rDOT App?

Please follow this guide to stake DOT: https://docs.stafi.io/rtoken-app/rdot-solution/rdot-staker-guide

After staking DOT through the rDOT App, the user will automatically get the staking voucher rDOT tokens. The amount of rDOT a user could get is calculated on the amount of staked DOT and the rDOT/DOT exchange rate then. rDOT tokens are anchored to the DOT assets staked by users and the corresponding staking reward. rDOT tokens can be transferred and traded at any time at the users’ convenience.

7.How to calculate the exchange rate of rDOT?

When a user deposits DOT into the rDOT contract, StaFi will calculate the amount of rDOT which has to be issued to the user based on the current exchange rate between the amount of DOT deposited and rDOT. When a user holds rDOT, StaFi will calculate the amount of redeemable DOT based on the real-time staking income of DOT.

The rDOT exchange rate Ci grows with the increase in Staking income. It is determined by the total number of DOT locked in the staking contract Qstk, the total number of redeemed DOT Qred, the number of staking rewards Qrew, the number of slash Qslh, the commission rate Rcom, the total number of rDOT issued M, and the total number of burnt rDOT N. The calculation formula is as follows:

8.What are the circulation scenarios of rDOT?

StaFi will create rich, multi-level circulation scenarios that stretch across different chains for holders of rDOT :

1) After the rDOT App is live, StaFi will establish rDOT/ETH and rDOT/DOT pairs on DEX such as Uniswap and Balancer, and organize liquidity mining incentive campaigns.

2) StaFi will not only support the circulation of rDOT in the ETH ecosystem but also empower DOT engagement in the DeFi protocol of Polkadot and Cosmos through cross-chain bridge services.
