(BSC) Tutorial - Staking vTokens / crTokens

Note 1: After staking the LP token, Venus and Cream will only receive deposit interest without distribution mining interest from BSC.
Note 2: vToken is the certificate of ownership that provides funding to Venus. Upon depositing the supported tokens in Venus protocol, the corresponding vToken will be automatically generated. If you want to redeem the original tokens, you can swap back on Venus platform.
Note 3: crToken is the certificate of ownership that provides funding to Cream. Upon depositing the supported tokens in Cream protocol, the corresponding crToken will be automatically generated. If you want to redeem the original tokens, you can swap back on Cream platform.
Announcement regarding vTokens and crTokens:
vTokens and crTokens are subject to liquidation on Venus or Cream when the collateral rate decreases below a pre-defined collateral rate. By transferring vTokens or crTokens, you will adjust your collateral rate on Venus or Cream.
Before staking vTokens and/or crTokens into the staking pools, make sure that you do not have any borrowings on Venus or Cream or are absolutely sure of your assets on Venus or Cream not being under the risk of liquidation when staking your vTokens and/or crTokens into the staking pools on Flux Protocol!
