Maturity Lock Vaults
So far, users have been able to enjoy additional yield, including a share of the protocol’s revenue, by staking TONIC for xTONIC. Now, we’re taking this a step further with the introduction of Maturity Lock Vaults!

What are Maturity Lock Vaults?

We at Tectonic remain committed to improving the tokenomics for the benefit of our TONIC holders. The rationale behind Maturity Lock Vaults is to further align our HODLERS with our mission of creating long-term value.
Using Maturity Vaults, users can lock their xTONIC into fixed time periods and earn TONIC. There will be a range of maturities to choose from, including 6 months, 12 months, 24 months and 48 months, and these xTONIC tokens will only be released following the completion of the relevant period. To reward our long-term supporters and holders of TONIC, the yield multiplier will increase exponentially for the longer locking periods (see table below), which the reward originates from community incentives.
Sounds great! Where do I start?
Here’s a step-by-step tutorial on how to use our Maturity Lock Vaults:
