Community FAQ

1. Why is Minterest deploying on Mantle Network?

One of the key challenges for Minterest on Ethereum is a majority of the community cannot participate through supplying and borrowing due to the nature of the expensive gas fees. Minterest’s deployment onto Mantle resolves this.

2. When is Minterest deploying on Mantle Network?

January 4, 2024

3. What can I do on Minterest after it deploys on Mantle?

Minterest users will initially be able to

  • Supply among four token assets: USDC, USDT, WETH, MNT, mETH and mUSD. Verify the token contract addresses with the links provided.

  • Enable Governance Participation on and MINTY will be automatically staked in governance to earn additional MINTY rewards!

Other features coming in early 2024 include:

  • Minterest NFTs that increase emission rewards

4. What do I get for Supplying on Minterest on the Mantle Network?

Supplying on Minterest earns emission rewards in TWO tokens!

  • MINTY is Minterest’s native governance token

  • MNT is Mantle Network’s token

Notes on the reward tokens:

  • MINTY token is in pre-launch and not available to trade until early 2024

  • MNT earned is liquid and can be withdrawn from Minterest at anytime

5. How much do I get for Supplying?

Emission rewards earned depend on the total amount supplied and your share of that supply. As supply increases or decreases, APYs on emissions will inversely fluctuate. View the current APYs of token markets on the Minterest markets page.

6. What is staking? How do I stake?

Staking is the process of depositing MINTY into Minterest’s governance process. It allows you to vote on governance proposals. Staking also rewards with additional MINTY tokens!

MINTY earned by Supplying and Borrowing on Minterest can be automatically staked. Simply toggle on “Governance Participation” found on the modal when supplying/borrowing and on your Dashboard.

Minterest's Yield-boosting NFTs are currently on Ethereum. They increase rewards of MINTY earned from supplying and borrowing by 20%-50% depending on the rarity of the NFT. The Minterest team is building out the bridging frontend needed to allow the NFTs to be transferred to the Mantle Network via LayerZero in early 2024.

10. I participated in the CAE/LBP. What happens to my MINTY?
