winSPIRIT

Definition

winSPIRIT is a general term for any wrapped inSPIRIT token.
Currently, we have two wrapped versions of inSPIRIT:
  • ginSPIRIT, courtesy of our friends at Grim Finance
  • linSPIRIT, proudly made by Liquid Driver

Why winSPIRIT?

Wrapped inSPIRIT tokens are created by autofarms by locking SPIRIT tokens forever in order to increase the APR of their SpiritSwap boosted farm vaults. Holding inSPIRIT enables the vaults to obtain a max boost of 2.5x.
Autofarms accumulate inSPIRIT by offering winSPIRIT in return for SPIRIT deposits. The protocol introduces an experimental feature, which functions as an autofarm smart contract which converts the deposited SPIRIT into inSPIRIT, and perpetually relocks that SPIRIT every 4 years. The smart contract functions as a one-way swap, where $SPIRIT is converted into the relevant winSPIRIT entitling the holder to various additional functionality (e.g. transferability outside of the protocol). This means the deposited $SPIRIT is locked in that smart contract forever.
The deposited SPIRIT will never be returned to the user or market. However, the user will receive winSPIRIT, which is transferable, contrary to inSPIRIT which cannot be transferred between wallets.
