If you see your Twitter handle on an incentive leaderboard you are eligible for the reward as per the incentive instructions. The Vega team will announce via our official channels that rewards are ready to be claimed. This announcement will come shortly after the close of the incentive. All the details are below but first thing’s first...
Really important: These links can be used only once and are not unique to you or your Twitter account. They act like cash, anyone can use them to claim the tokens, and once used they cannot be used again or changed.
Many (but not all) of the VEGA rewards for community participation will be fully or partially locked for a period of time. This is to encourage longer term engagement and dissuade “farming” of community programmes by those who intend to cash out immediately for short term monetary gain. Once this period is over and your tokens unlock, you’ll be able to redeem the tokens as described below.
Your tokens will be held in the vesting contract and can be redeemed subject to any vesting term.
So, on to the next steps...
By going through this process you will be allocating your tokens in the vesting contract to your chosen wallet address.
Check @VegaFairground on Twitter for official communication that the rewards are ready to be claimed. You can check Linktree to check all official Vega accounts and sites
Navigate to the Vega rewards site and authenticate using the same Twitter account you used to participate in the incentive
If you are eligible you will be presented with a link, click it and it will take you to a claim page on the Vega Token site
Connect with the Ethereum wallet that you want to control your VEGA tokens with
Follow claim Step 1 from the token claim page: Confirm your country/region (It is not possible to claim tokens if you are a resident/citizen of some countries*)
Follow claim steps 2 and 3 on the token claim page; which both require signing Ethereum transactions
Over time the tokens you have been rewarded will vest and become unlocked. If and when you have unlocked tokens you will be able to redeem them to your Ethereum wallet.
Go to token.vega.xyz/vesting
Connect to your Ethereum wallet and you’ll see a summary of all your vesting tokens and details of tranche(s) they are contained in - which will let you know when they unlock
If you have any VEGA tokens in tranches that have partly or fully unlocked you can redeem them by clicking a button on the page. Note that if you have associated any tokens with a Vega wallet/key (for staking or governance) you must dissociate them before redeeming
Sign the redeem transaction with your Ethereum wallet in the pop-up
This will withdraw everything that is unlocked from that tranche
Your tokens can now be freely transferred between Ethereum wallets (remember to add the token address to your wallet so that you can see your VEGA balance)
Token.vega.xyz is the home to all information about your tokens, including staking. Take a look and let us know what you think.
