Guide to Passive DF

Get veOCEAN to use the Data Farming dApp and make yield!

In order to get yield in DF, you will need to lock your OCEAN first! When you lock your OCEAN, you get veOCEAN and weekly passive OCEAN rewards in return. veOCEAN is a token used in Ocean Protocol's Data Farming dApp to generate even more yield, called Volume DF rewards, for allocating your veOCEAN to your favorite assets and get a portion of their sales!

Don't have OCEAN yet? Get those first!

Step 1 - Get OCEAN

Step 2 - Send to your self-custody wallet

  • Send your OCEAN to a self-custody wallet of yours that supports ERC-20 tokens, like Metamask for example.
