    Yield??

    Have a question about yield
    I know its profit divided by amount staked
    So for example 49 staked and profit back is 12.12 would be 12.12/49 which comes back as 0.247% on calculator. Do I need to move the decimal? Is this actually 24.7% yield or 2.47% thanks

    Hi Harris,

    You can express the result in two ways:
    12.12/49 = 0.247
    or
    12.12/49 = 24.7%

    So the yield is 24.7% if you want to express it as a percentage. If you want to express it without percentage symbol it would be 0.247. Recall that 1% = 0.01.

    For your second example you can express the yield as
    2.29/27 = 0.0848
    or
    2.29/27 = 8.48%

    You can play around in Excel or some other spreadsheet software. Enter =2.29/27 into a cell. Change the formatting of the cell back and forth between % and standard decimal.

    Hi Harris,

    Yes, the yield is the profit returned relative to the stake.

    If the stake is $100 and the profit is $50, the yield is 50% because the profit is equal to 50% of the original stake.
