Lock & Earn
The users can lock cryptocurrencies for a fixed-term period and earn ordinary deposit APR, plus an amount of Folks Reward Token (frToken).
Lock & Earn is a different way to deposit an asset. The user locks their crypto-asset for a fixed-duration and accepts not to use the fToken until the end of the designated term. To repay the commitment, the user receives ordinary deposit APR, plus an amount of Folks Reward Token: frToken, proportional to the length of the locked period. When the locking period has ended, the user will be able to withdraw the fToken and claim their deposited assets. Have a look at the Rewards Aggregator page to learn more about the frToken and how to best use them.
During the locked period, you will not be able to withdraw your deposited assets or use the fToken as collateral.

Good-To-Know: What is a frToken?

The folks rewards token or frToken, is the asset distributed to users for performing operations on Folks Finance. frToken is instrumental to the system's operations, and the protocol itself mints them. They are distributed when users repay their loans' interests, or provide liquidity through Lock & Earn. These tokens should be traded with the rewards token through the rewards aggregator.
