Badger Boost Optimizer: User Guide

BadgerDAO 🦡
4 min readAug 5, 2021


With the passage of BIP 63, the Badger community voted to change how BADGER rewards are distributed to users of Sett Vaults, resulting in the Boost Power Up. The new system allocates more BADGER rewards to users who show a desire to participate in governance and support the BadgerDAO ecosystem by holding Badger assets. It also improves the Boost scalability and creates a direct connection between users’ Stake Ratios and the level of rewards they receive.

In short, the higher the ratio of your native balance (like bBadger or a DIGG LP) compared to non-native balance (funds deposited into BTC Setts), the higher the Badger token rewards you receive on your non-native vault positions.

To help you calculate the amount of native Badger assets needed to increase your Boost, we have released a new tool called the Badger Boost Optimizer. It will tell you the exact ratio of native to non-native assets required to increase your Boost incrementally.

How to Use the Boost Optimizer

1. Visit and connect your wallet

2. Click the Boost dropdown and select Boost Optimizer

3. View your current Boost

The Boost Optimizer automatically displays the native and non-native balances in your wallet, and calculates your Stake Ratio (native to non-native) in order to generate your boost multiplier.

The color code corresponds to your current Boost level, spanning from Basic Badger (orange) to Frenzy Badger (red).

According to the asset levels displayed on the calculator, you will see a note displayed below the native assets field that indicates the amount of additional native assets ($BADGER or $DIGG) needed to raise your Badger Boost to the next tier.

When you deposit that amount in the Badger App, you should see your Badger icon change and your Boost score increase.

4. Modeling your boost multiplier

To model how your Boost score changes at different asset levels, you can adjust the values in the calculator, and the results will automatically update. Adjusting upward from your existing position will turn the asset field green while adjusting downward will turn the asset field red.

It is also worth noting that while reducing your non-native position may increase your boost multiplier, you will ultimately receive less Badger rewards in your non-native setts.

To go deeper into the mechanics of Boost, you can view the underlying model here.

4. Check Your Badger Leaderboard Status

If you’d like to see how your Boost compares to other Badgers, click “View Leaderboard”. You will see how many users fall into each category.

Note that the “Multiplier” value, not your rank, determines your reward levels. Your rank on the Leaderboard is for flexing purposes only.
