We’re pleased to announce that Orbs is now available on Snowball Finance - a yield optimizer and a new AMM DEX running on the Avalanche Network.
Snowball is a DeFi protocol running on Avalanche blockchain. It has launched alongside other leading financial protocols on the Avalanche Network. The protocol benefits from yield farming on Pangolin and affordable gas fees on Avalanche. The Snowball protocol builds upon the work of Pickle Finance from the Ethereum Mainnet.
Snowball allows users to automatically compound PNG rewards several times a day.
Well, what is auto compounding?
Auto compounding is one of Snowball’s services, which allows users to earn rewards by reinvesting the rewards in pools. Snowball’s yield farm pools are optimized for Pangolin, Trader Joe, BENQI where users come to compound their token rewards.
So, how does auto compounding work?
Deposit your liquidity provider (LP) tokens into the SnowGlobe. After making the deposit, you will receive S tokens, equivalent to the token pair you deposited. The rewards you receive as a liquidity provider (LP) are redeposited into the same pool as your original deposit. Snowball takes a 10% fee of the rewards you receive as a LP. Compounding takes place several times a day, depending on the pool size. Snob tokens received from depositing your S tokens into IceQueen are not compounded.

Steps to Compound & Earn
How to Calculate APR and APY
Calculate APR, using the same logic as illustrated here:
It takes the price of the two tokens in a pair, price of PNG, and PNG emissions rates from Pangolin Exchange into factor.
For APY you can use the standard formula A = P(1 + r/n)nt. You can check it here.
The Avalanche ecosystem keeps rapidly exploding and breaking its own records, being one of the fastest growing Layer-1 chains with astonishing TVL!
In previous blogs we stated that Avalanche is the next avenue for the expansion of Orbs’ ecosystem and the launch on Snowball is the latest step forward.
