Definition: APR vs. APY

(Annual Percentage Rate vs. Annual Percentage Yield) Both methods compute the interest paid on an investment. However, APR applies a flat annual rate or "simple interest," whereas APY shows "compound interest," which is interest paid on the principal and additional deposited interest. Always higher than APR, APY is the favored measurement on crypto funds. See yield farming.
