magicAPE: Abracadabra’s Automated Compounder for staked $APE Tokens
magicAPE is Abracadabra’s auto-compounder for APE tokens, where APE yield produced by APE farming on https://apestake.io/ is automatically auto-compounded back into magicAPE.
With magicAPE, the APE yield generated from APE staking is automatically reinvested into magicAPE, which helps you maximise your returns. Like other vault tokens, over time, the value of magicAPE will increase due to the auto-compound, causing the magicAPE:APE ratio to rise.

Once in the wallet, you can deposit APE tokens by inserting the desired amount in the upper box, on the right side of the screen.
