Trading game details

gm Vegabonds! Running until Monday, October 2nd at 2:00 pm UTC, we will be conducting a referral and funding game, this time on BTC USD-PERP. You will be asked to receive as much Funding as possible, so take positions and be on the "correct" side. You should also join a referral set and compete together as well as create a referral set of your own!

You’re invited to test out Perpetuals & Referrals II. This release is hot off the press so Bugs are expected!

Before Perpetuals can be made available for network upgrades, we need your assistance again! Immerse yourself, learn more about this type of derivative, and stand a chance to win — there are rewards worth 2000 $VEGA up for grabs!

The Browser Wallet and CLI Wallet are the wallets that are compatible with this incentive, so please remember to use one of these two.

And to appear on those leaderboards, you'll have to enter a referral code to test out Vega's new referral system! But don't miss out on the chance to create one as well and get users to trade using your code!

You can faucet USD-PERPusing console, up to 1000 USD-PERP per day. Just access the console select USD-PERP and click "Get USD-PERP".

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 suggestions 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!

Market details

Market details will be visible through Vega Alpha Console and APIs.

All announcements for this market will be made via the Vega Protocol Twitter account @vegaprotocol so make sure you follow to stay up to date.


After 23rd October 2023, 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 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 help iron out these bugs.
  • 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.
