Understand gas, fees and ROI before you deposit into yearn vault
Imagine you have some tokens in your Ethereum wallet and you discovered a new vault that lets you earn passive income on your tokens. Since you have no immediate use of the tokens you decide to put some tokens into the vault and earn some passive income.
If you are new to crypto and DeFi this is a fairly common occurrence. You want to understand a little how things work before you put tokens in, so you decide to put a small amount in the vault. But before you realize the gas prices are high and you will approximately spend ~$30 on the transaction just for deposit. Now you are wondering if this was a great idea and, how long to keep this money so that you are not at a loss. We along with several of the users in DeFi have faced this challenge and we decided to do something about calculating ROI for Yearn vaults.
We are introducing Deposit Simulation for Yearn vaults. This feature allows you to specify the amount and token to deposit and simulate its performance over the course of the deposit duration. For the calculation, we assume that the APY remains constant. Remember the APY changes every block and our historical APY for vaults will help you learn about the volatility of the APY. It automatically calculates the transaction cost for deposit and withdrawal at the current gas prices, and any slippages if you are swapping tokens. This gives you a picture of the cost and the profit and loss before you are ready to deposit tokens into a vault. And the best part, you will know exactly how long will it take to be profitable at the current APY and gas price
