0.1% Withdrawal Fee

Most single strategy vaults incorporate a 0.1% withdrawal fee that is redistributed to vault users.
Without this fee, it is theoretically possible for an individual to deposit a large quantity of underlying assets, call a vault harvest, and exit the vault with a large share of the vault's rewards. One iteration may not be highly profitable, but consistent, automated attacks can compound, and take yield from well-intentioned users.
Incorporating the fee deters such behaviour, because entering and exiting a crypt with large capital for the purpose of harvesting would result in a net loss.
The community requested that an alternative solution be developed, so that they would not also have to face a fee when exiting vaults.
Therefore, new vaults utilise a gated harvest function that is automated by keepers. These new vaults no longer utilise a withdrawal fee, but anonymous users can no longer earn harvest-caller rewards and fee distributions.
If you are unsure whether a vault has a withdrawal fee or not, you can follow these steps:
  1. 1.
    Identify the vault of interest and select the 'More Info' button.
  2. 2.
    Select the 'Strategy Contract' link to view the contract on FTMScan.
  3. 3.
    Under the 'Contract' tab, select 'Read as Proxy' to read the contract parameters.
  4. 4.
    Locate the 'securityFee' dropdown and click it to read its value.
  5. 5.
    If the value is 10, then a 0.1% withdrawal fee applies. If the value is 0, there is no withdrawal fee.
