Made Pool FAQ & Troubleshooting


I can't find the Made Pool I was staking in!

You should be able to find the Made Pool under the “Finished” tab on the Made Pools page.

By selecting “Staked Only”, it will make it easier to find your assets.

Why can’t I unstake my tokens from a Made Pool?

If you are unable to unstake from the Stake SELF, Earn SELF pools, please check to make sure that you haven’t sold the MADE tokens in your wallet. This token acts as a `proof of ownership` over your SELF in the Manual SELF pool.

Why did my earned tokens go to zero after staking/unstaking?

Don’t worry! They’re in your wallet already.

Whenever you stake or unstake from a Made Pool or farm, your earned tokens get harvested and sent to your wallet at the same time.

General Questions

How is APR for Made Pools calculated?

Made Pool APR = Annualized rewards (USD) / User funds staked in Made Pool (USD) * 100

As a basic example, let's take a 60-day pool with 300,000 USD worth of rewards, and 3,000,000 USD worth of SELF staked in it.

The APR fluctuates as more SELF is staked by users, and as the price of SELF , and the reward token, vary.



Total rewards to distribute (USD value)

300,000 USD

Distribution period

60 days

Daily distribution

300,000 / 60 =

5,000 USD daily

Annualised rewards (USD value)

5,000 * 365 =

1,825,000 USD

Value of SELF staked by users in pool (USD value)

3,000,000 USD


(1,825,000 / 3,000,000) * 100 =

60.833% APR

What does the “End” number on my Made Pool refer to?

This shows the amount of blocks left until the rewards for that pool stop being distributed. Once the pool has reached that block, you should unstake your tokens, because you won’t be receiving any rewards after that.

Where do the rewards from Made Pools come from?

There are three main types of Made Pools.

  1. Stake SELF , earn SELF

  2. Stake SELF , earn other tokens.

  3. Stake other tokens, earn SELF

The rewards for the "Stake SELF, earn SELF" Made Pools come from the SELF emissions. Each block, a number of SELF tokens are allocated as rewards for these pools.

The rewards for the "Stake SELF, earn other tokens" type are provided by the project teams who sponsor a Made Pool.

For the "Stake other tokens, earn SELF" type, the SMBSwap treasury buys back SELF from the market to distribute as rewards. These pools are funded by SMBSwap, not by the projects themselves.

What’s MADE Token?

SMBSwap’s MADE Token is deposited in your wallet when you interact with the Manual “Stake SELF, Earn SELF” Made Pool. It's not staked for

It’s basically an IOU that shows how much SELF you’ve staked in the pool.

It’ll be returned automatically when you unstake your SELF from that pool.

Don’t sell your MADE tokens! You need to return your MADE to unstake your SELF from the Manual SELF pool. The amount of MADE you return must be the same as the amount of SELF you unstake.
