What is happening to the ANC tokens claimed from Anchor Protocol?

In this article, we are going to focus on the ANC tokens that are claimed from Anchor’s protocol and how far Anchor stakeholder’s sell their ANC rewards?

Let me begin with a short and simple explanation of what the Anchor Protocol is about.The Anchor Protocol provides 20% yields for its users on the Terra blockchain. It serves as a money market between borrowers and lenders of stablecoins.

Anchor offers several ways to earn money, including:

  • Deposit: UST deposits on the protocol are the easiest way to earn.The protocol presents itself as a savings product, and offers 20% APY on its deposits
  • Borrow: In order to borrow UST, users need to post bonded LUNA as collateral, which results in a reward distributed in ANC tokens that is higher than the interest on the loan.
  • Stake ANC: ANC can also be purchased and staked to benefit from the staking rewards on the Anchor platform, as well as participate in governance.
  • Provide liquidity:  In addition, it is possible to earn rewards by stake ANC-UST LP tokens to provide exchange liquidity for ANC.
