  1. What is Implied Variable APR and how is it relevant in Yield Token trading?

Implied APY is a market prediction of an asset's future annual yield, which helps traders plan their strategies. It's calculated based on the current rate, and actual returns may vary.

  1. Why does it say, 'You will receive at least'?
