Incentivised trading game details

On Tuesday 19th of July, we are releasing a trading game incentive in order celebrate ETHcc and for our community to try out trading on our testnet, either using the new under development console, or API. The new incentive will be trading until Friday 22nd of July 12pm UTC.

The rules are simple, trade the XYZgamma asset and increase it as much as you can and end up in the top 25 with the largest percentage gain, or if you get a bit "unlucky", trade the XYZgamma asset and decrease it, as close to 0 as possible without being liquidated. End up in the top 25 with the largest percentage loss, again, without being liquidated.

Both leaderboards are based on percentage gain/loss and calculated according to (final balance - total deposited)/(total deposited).

Aim for the top spot on either the profit leaderboard or the loss leaderboard to receive the highest reward according to the distribution tables below.

Dodgems X ETHcc is a trading game based on the price of LTCUSD in the market named Builders Club x ETHcc in the VEGA testnet environment. By competing in a lifelike market for a share of the VEGA incentives, you’ll learn about Vega and find out first-hand what it’s like to trade on Vega markets.

In addition to the trading game incentive we would highly appreciate any bugs or suggestion of improvements to the console to be submitted on github discussions.

The project will also benefit from all the data created, metrics collected, and feedback received, which will help develop and improve the protocol. If we’re really lucky and something goes wrong we might even find and fix some bugs!

After 25th August 2022, winners will be able to get a token claim link by logging onto the token rewards website with the Twitter account used to register for Fairground Incentives (this is the Twitter handle on the list above). You will be asked to confirm your country of residence - unfortunately, those in restricted countries will not be able to claim tokens.

This is a unique, one time use link, and not specific to any individual so it can be used by anyone to claim tokens. Please treat it with the same security as you would a token. Unfortunately, Vega cannot rectify any mistakes, lost links, or links that have already been used. You know the drill!

All tokens have a linear vesting. All tokens, either locked or vested, can be staked on the Vega network once it is live.

Further information

All announcements for this incentivised period will be made via the official Fairground Twitter account @VegaFairground so make sure you follow to stay up to date. This includes changes, updates and early closing of the period.

Check out the Incentive Terms and Conditions for information related to all incentives.


  • Breaking things is encouraged! Tell us how you broke them and we may give you a tip if it’s found to be a critical bug. Demonstrate exactly how to reproduce it here. Include screenshots/code snippets in as much detail as possible to be eligible for a tip.
  • The Vega project reserves the right to not reward participants that are not participating in the community spirit of the incentive programs i.e. botting to collect as many rewards as possible or using an exploit to win an incentive.
  • In the event of unforeseen issues and/or a network crash (or essential reset) we will either restart the event OR track and reward those that participated successfully. The course of action will depend on the unforeseen issue. If you miss out, don’t worry, there are many more incentives planned for the coming weeks and months.
  • Attempting to create multiple entries by changing twitter handles, having multiple personal accounts, using bot or farmed twitter accounts or by any other means will result in disqualification from this, and any future, incentives.
