We are excited to announce that SFT Protocol now supports interaction with FVM on the Filecoin mainnet! This is not only an upgrade to our product, but also an important initiative in building the FVM ecosystem. Next, we will introduce how to use SFT Protocol through FVM. If you are not familiar with SFT Protocol yet, we will provide a brief introduction later in this document.

Using SFT Protocol with FVM: A How-To Guide

How does SFT Protocol Work with FVM and LSD?

SFT represents the staked FVM’s FIL in Filecoin, which includes the initial deposit and stake rewards. SFT tokens are minted when FIL is deposited and destroyed when FIL is redeemed. The number of SFTs is directly linked to the FIL staked in Filecoin on a 1:1 basis.

The SFT Protocol’s Farms module is a platform where users can earn income from FIL tokens by staking SFT tokens. Currently, the Farms module offers two revenue models: demand income and three-month fixed income. By using SFT on the Farm, users can easily earn more than 10% profit (FIL) which can be harvested every day.
