Step 3: Select the chain you’d like to stake on, take 'Arbitrum' as the example. Then, select the base tokens to add as liquidity, take the “USDC” base token as the example. Note that different pool supports a number of different base tokens with different APYs. Choose according to your own preferences and requiries.
Step 4: Enter the USDC amount you’d like to add as liquidity at the “ADD” section (The amount can not exceed your wallet balance). Or you can choose to add in proportion to your wallet balance. Then click the ”Add Liquidity”.
Step 5: Wallet will pop up for approval. Click “Confirm” to approve and the hint will prompt you that the staking is successful. Once the transaction is validated on-chain, you can see your liquidity information in the “pool Info”. The base token you added as liquidity will be marked with the tick tag.

Your liquidity is added & stored on the specific smart contract of the respective chain, which acts as a counterparty to the traders position. It is subject to a certain market risk, for more information regarding potential risks and profits, check out How it works Mining (AMM Liquidity Mining)article or Mining FAQ​

Is the AMM Liquidity Mining on Deri pools risk-free?

No, it isn't. In general, it is essential to comprehend that liquidity providers are the counterparts of traders on Deri Protocol. When traders realize profits, they do so at the expense of liquidity provider's provided liquidity. When traders realize losses or are liquidated, liquidity providers realize profits at the expense of traders.
Since it is very rare that all traders' positions are covered by an equal number of long and short contracts, liquidity providers step in to cover the difference between long and short positions (net position) with their liquidity. Therefore Liquidity mining on Deri Pools is subject to market risk
However, please note that such market risk is different from the impermanent loss of spot exchanges (e.g. Uniswap or Sushiswap). First of all, the fact it is called "risk", instead of "loss", indicates that the LSV/mining PnL result could be negative but also positive (which depends on several factors such as funding & transaction fees, exceeding traders' profits & realizing them, etc.). Secondly, the probability of a negative result (a loss) on Deri liquidity mining pools is much smaller than that of typical spot exchanges due to the protection by arbitrageurs, although a certain market risk remains. You might think of liquidity mining on Deri as investing in a low-risk fund with potentially very high profit, whereas that risk-free liquidity mining is like depositing your money into a bank saving account.
