What’s the significance of this? APR does not take into account the effect of compounding, while APY does. For example, the farm with the highest return now has an APR of 708.9%. This means that with $100 invested at this rate of return, you would get a return of $708.90 after 1 year. Of course, due to the tokenomics etc, this APR will not hold over a year, but let’s just put that aside for the moment. So how much of a difference will compounding make? Compounding an APR of 708.9% on a daily basis, will result in an APY of (1+708.9%/365)³⁶⁵ = 111,994.80%. Yes that was not a typo. You get an effective APY of 157.98X the APR. How about compounding on an hourly basis? (1+708.9%/(365*24))^(³⁶⁵*²⁴) = 119,527.69%. That’s 168.61X the APR.
