Fairground Fairground

Incentive Details

From Wednesday 22nd June, exact start time will be announced in Discord, until Friday 24th June 14:00 UTC, a new incentive will run on Fairground.

The incentive will be focused on rewards on multiple markets and assets, rewards are distributed to users that are Providing Liquidity to and or Trading on specific markets in order to incentivise trading volume, which for this incentive is the BTCUSD, UNIDAI Monthly and AAVEDAI market.

For the ones that have been with us for a while you get the opportunity to use many of the skills you have acquired during the past months' incentives, this time, however, LP and Trading leaderboard is not based on the PNL of trading but rather the rewards received by doing so.

Reward assets

The leaderboard will be based on 3 different types of rewards which are combined for the ranking. Please note that the leaderboard is a bit mixed up so you will need to strategize a bit to end up at the right spot. Below can see the three fee categories, and any participant who, for example, places a market order that is filled, will receive a proportion of the reward amount available for that fee.

Important to note is that there are 3 markets that are sharing the same reward pools. You can see the size of each pool and how to receive that reward below.

$MAK: Obtained based on the sum of maker fees received on the BTC/USD, UNI/DAI Monthly and AAVE/DAI market.

$TAK: Obtained based on the sum of maker fees paid on the BTC/USD, UNI/DAI Monthly and AAVE/DAI market.

$LIQ: Obtained based on the sum of liquidity fees received on the BTC/USD, UNI/DAI Monthly and AAVE/DAI market.

During the incentive, when you participate in trades in accordance with the above criteria, you will be able to see that your assets $MAK, $TAK and $LIQ will increase a few times per day. The leaderboard ranking is based on the total amount of acquired $MAK, $TAK and $LIQ ($MAK + $TAK + $LIQ), so even if you are not able to provide liquidity, you are still able to compete.

The reward pool setup for each market is the following:

BTCUSD, UNIDAI Monthly and AAVEDAI market reward pool sizes

  1. $MAK:1000
  2. $TAK:1000
  3. $LIQ:1000

After 30th July 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 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 Twitter account @Vegaprotcol so make sure you follow to stay up to date. This includes changes, updates and early closing of the period.

  • 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.
  • 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.
