Other Platform Tokens

There are a total of two platform-issued token at Buffer:

Escrowed BFR (esBFR)

Escrowed BFR (esBFR) can be used in two ways:
  • Staked for rewards similar to regular BFR tokens
  • Vested to become actual BFR tokens over a period of one year
Each staked Escrowed BFR token will earn the same amount of Escrowed BFR rewards as a regular BFR token.

Multiplier Points (MPs)

Multiplier Points reward long-term holders without inflation.
When you stake BFR, you receive Multiplier Points every second at a fixed rate of 100% APR. 1000 BFR staked for one year would earn 1000 Multiplier Points.
Multiplier points can be staked for fee reward. When BFR or Escrowed BFR tokens are unstaked, the proportional amount of Multiplier Points is burnt.
Eg: if 1000 BFR is staked and 500 Multiplier Points have been earned so far, then un-staking BFR would burn 150 (300 / 1000 * 500) Multiplier Points. The burn will apply to the total amount of Multiplier Points which includes both staked and unstaked Multiplier Points.
To transfer staked tokens without burning Multiplier Points, use the "Transfer" button on the Earn page.
The "Boost Percentage" shown on the Earn page shows your individual boost amount from Multiplier Points.
The “Boost Percentage” is calculated based on the ratio of Multiplier Points to your total amount of staked BFR:
Boost Percentage = 100 * (Staked Multiplier Points) / (Staked BFR + Staked esBFR).
