A few key terms for those new to the language
A process where an independent third party inspects and tests smart contracts. Auditors look for vulnerabilities that a hacker could exploit to steal funds or otherwise compromise the system. Audits help keep users' funds safe, and the founders of Revo are moving quickly to get our contracts audited as soon as possible.
A standard interface for tokens on EVM-compatible blockchains. ERC-20 tokens generally behave as you would expect a cryptocurrency to behave-- they are "fungible", meaning they are indistinguishable from one another, they can be transferred between parties, burned, minted, and spent on another's behalf (if they gave permission).
Note: NFTs are not ERC-20 tokens. Generally they implement a different interface known as ERC-721.
At a high level, staking means depositing one or more cryptocurrencies in a smart contract to gain rewards. For yield farming, there are at least two use cases for staking:
Decentralized governance is where key decisions about how a platform should work-- such as what features are added, or new use of community funds-- are voted on by stakeholders (rather than decided on unilaterally by some centralized unit, like a founder). Typically voting involves staking governance tokens.
Slippage is the difference in the expected output of a swap in a DEX and the actual output due to market movement after you preview your swap, but before it executes. Slippage can negatively impact the output of a swap. Revo will revert a swap (i.e., prevent it from ever occuring) if it detects slippage higher than 5%.
A liquidity pool is a smart contract that enables people to swap between two different tokens in exchange for a small fee. Using a DEX, anyone can stake two tokens that they own in a liquidity pool to help others buy or sell one of them in exchange for a share of the swap fees. An article on this here.
RFP (short for "Revo Farm Point") tokens represent shares in a Farm Bot. RFP Tokens are backed by LP tokens, meaning they can be bought for LP tokens or sold for LP tokens at any given time. RFP Tokens can be thought of as interest-bearing wrappers for LP tokens, because the rewards gained by investing LP tokens in a yield farm are re-invested in the farm, so the value of RFP tokens will increase over time.
Zapping out works the same way, but in the reverse direction (swapping an FP token for a non-Revo token).
