Concerning the fee issue on NOVA

At the end of the week, we experienced an unexpected issue on the NOVA staking contract. Please find a quick overview of the problem below and a more detailed article about the issue, the solutions, and every other thing you should know soon.

Bug details

  • The fees calculation has an underflow when the variable daysSinceStartStaking is greater than 60 days.

Important infos

  • The reward calculation stays functional, so the user can continue to stake and will be rewarded at the end correctly with a migration system we gonna build. We will also provide a new one-step click function to withdraw LP and be rewarded.

For all these points, more info will come soon in a detailed article.

Front app adjustments

  • If there is a problem with fees, we fallback at 1% to keep the nova reward display correct


We had not thought of mentioning it so soon. However, by the nature of things, it is important to anticipate the arrival of a V3. It was inevitable but It’s a good solution for this problem and more.

As Nova is the heart of our DAO, we want a more efficient and less gas-consuming system. After several audits and implementation tests, we deduced that the best possible solution was to integrate several functionalities directly into the heart of the NOVA token.

All these features will be detailed soon in a dedicated article (snapshot and delegating voting features…)
